* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Thelma to Ernie, Ruben, and Ruben's best friend. In another episode, after Ernie loses an election, he gives one to the core cast. Thelma also gives a blistering one to her father and grandfather regarding their feuding, capping it off with this:
--> "I didn't know my mother very well, but I'm certain she would be as ''disgusted'' with you two as I am!"

* TheGhost: Deacon Frye lost his wife when Thelma was a young girl. She is often mentioned, but glimpsed only once in a flashback. We never see Chris' mother either, even though she must surely exist--Thelma mentions needing to have a talk with her after yet another rude and intrusive question from him.



* MyBelovedSmother: Reuben's mother, who constantly takes passive-aggressive digs at Thelma and tries to make her feel like she's not good enough for him. Not until Thelma and Reuben finally tell her off does she admit that her son is the only family she has left and that she was afraid of losing him. Ernie counts too, for the way he tends to treat Thelma like a child, to the point where she and Reuben have to throw him out of their honeymoon suite. He then spends their honeymoon calling her every day, bawling his eyes out for an hour, constantly shows up at their apartment uninvited and unannounced,, and is visibly pleased when a fire forces them to move in with him.

* DecemberDecemberRomance: Rolly and Leola


Added DiffLines:

** Reuben's backstory includes a fiancee who did this to ''him'', thus explaining his reluctance to propose to Thelma. And earlier in the series, Rolly nearly does this to his fiance after some OutOfContextEavesdropping that makes it sound as though she's bad-mouthing him.
