* SeinfeldianConversation: Done a few times. One specific example that comes to mind is a conversation between Blossom and Six about how people on tv never seem to need to use the bathroom. This discussion ends when Six announces that she has to go to the bathroom.

* MissingMom: In this case, by way of divorce, when Maddy runs off. Unlike many series, Maddy is heard from several times, and actually shows up more than once at the Russos. (When Maddy is featured, she is played by singer Melissa Manchester.)
** The trope figures heavily in the Season 4 episode "Kiss and Tell," when Maddy shows up wanting to reconcile with her family. Joey is very upset and refuses to allow his mother to explain why she was never there for the important moments of his life.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Occasionally happened with Kennedy (''[[BritishNewspapers The Daily Mail]]'' quipped "(There) is never any explanation as to why the precocious Kennedy, who is meant to be English, sounds Chinese"). Later in the show's final season, the writers threw in the towel and ditched the accent altogether.
