!!This show provides examples of:
* BumblingDad: Joel fits this to a tee.
* ButWeUsedACondom: Mia and Casey used a condom, but it broke, which led to her getting pregnant.
* DoTheyKnowItsChristmasTime: Oddly enough, there's a Christmas episode in October. Joel takes the annual Christmas card very seriously. They have odd themes, and Maddie, Mia, Vicky, and Joel all think they're amazing. Ben is confused because they're stupid.
* DysfunctionalFamily: Maddie, Mia, Vicky, and Joel definitely are dysfunctional. Vicky and Joel have some problems with the fact that Maddie and Ben aren't married.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Casey's full name is Casey Marion Davenport. He originally lied to Mia about his middle name.
* EmbarrassingOldPhoto: The Christmas photos for Mia, Maddie, Joel, and Vicky are this, but only Ben seems to think so.
* FourthDateMarriage: Mia and Casey got engaged after only seven weeks of being together, partly because of the pregnancy. Averted with Ben and Maddie, who have been together for nine years and have no plans to marry.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[{{Reba}} Cheyenne Montgomery]] is pregnant again!
*** And [[RebaMcEntire her mother turns up in one episode]] (yet strangely never asks how Van is doing!).
** [[That70sShow Kitty Forman]] is back on TV.
** [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Zachariah]] isn't evil anymore.
* HighSchoolSweethearts: Ben and Maddie have been together for nine years, since they were in high school.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: "Better with [X]"
* LaughTrack: To the extent that it makes otherwise passable jokes ''painful to listen to''.
** Not a laugh track; like most multi-camera sitcoms it uses a real live {{studio audience}} which laughs at the passable jokes because they are... passable jokes.
* NoPreggerSex: Averted with Casey and Mia, although Casey is worried about how sex will affect their unborn [[spoiler: son]].
* ObnoxiousInLaws: Joel drives Ben crazy. So does Vicky a little bit. Ben makes up a list of things for Casey to talk about and to avoid when he meets them.
* ShotgunWedding: What is presumably going to happen with Mia and Casey, if they marry before their baby arrives.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: "Is that a Christmas nest?"
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Upon getting a diamond necklace for Maddie upon forgetting her original gift, Ben tells a co-worker, "Roll credits, bitch".
* WackyMarriageProposal: Maddie suggests several wacky proposals to Casey so Mia won't agree to marry him. [[SpringtimeForHitler It doesn't work]].
