** Also a case of ArtisticLicenseLaw and SocietyMarchesOn : Contracts signed while the signer is under the influence are invalid, precisely because of deals like the one in "Bar Bet."

** Also a case of ArtisticLicenseLaw and SocietyMarchesOn : Contracts signed while the signer is under the influence are invalid, precisely because of deals like the one in "Bar Bet." (In fairness, Diane does point out that if the case went to court Sam could easily argue that his judgment was impaired, but Sam is reluctant to make his alcoholism a public spectacle.)

* PrenupBlowup: Happens with Frasier and Lilith.Lilith fought over this on ''Series/{{Cheers}}''. She refused, and the wedding proceeded.
** And then their marriage fell apart. The moral of the story, kids? Prenups are your friends.
*** Though his divorce was nowhere near as bad as his brother Niles' would be later on in ''Series/{{Frasier}}''.
** Averted with the marriage between bartender Woody and the exceedingly rich Kelly...with Woody asking for it. [[IdiotHero "I don't want her taking half my stuff."]] Naturally, it isn't an issue.

* ICanChangeMyBeloved: Both Sam and Diane had this attitude toward each other, which was one of the biggest problems with their relationship. Sam kept trying to get Diane to be less stuck-up and pretentious while Diane kept expecting Sam to grow out of his simpler interests like Three Stooges and sports, and both resented the other's attitude. Unlike most examples, they ''did'' try and compromise on this and meet each other in the middle (Diane started taking a mild interest in sports, Sam once binge-read War And Peace in five days so he and Diane would have something to talk about), but tragically, neither one of them was ever satisfied with the others' efforts and always demanded more.

*** Then Carla tells Lance that they might have more concern if Carla kissed Lance like "''this''", and proceeds to hungrily make out with him. Diane annoyedly tells Carla she's not involved. Carla breathlessly replies, "I am ''now''!"

* Foreshadowing: In the episode "Let Me Count The Ways" a nerdy MIT professor, Marshall made his first appearance and Carla was noticibly flirty with him. In the next episode it's revealed that Carla is pregnant and that she was planning on trapping Marshall to support the baby(who was actually her ex husband's with whom she had a one night stand). By the end she couldn't go through with it because he was such a nice honorable guy who fully intended to support not just the baby but the rest of her kids. After Carla admitted the truth he was never on again.

* YankTheDogsChain: "The Bar Manager, the Shrink, His Wife and Her Lover" has one of the funnier examples. When Lilith returns and says she wants to reconcile with Frasier, Sam celebrates by declaring a round of free drinks. However, just as Norm gets his glass, Frasier insists he and Lilith are not getting back together. Woody takes the beer back, so Norm implores the feuding couple to work things out.
