Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: In TheTeaser to one episode, a game is not going well. During halftime, Luther and Dauber listen in as an off-screen Hayden screams about performance and how he wants to see some changes.
-->'''Hayden:''' NOW GET OUT THERE AND DO YOUR JOB FOR GOD'S SAKE!\\
''[The door opens and out stumbles the university's priest]''
* ChristmasEpisode:
** "Christmas Brains": Hayden is depressed over a lonely Christmas and screwing up his relationship with Christine, so Kelly brings the in-laws and her mother for a visit.
** "My True Love Gave to Me...": Hayden and Dauber both get Christmas gifts from the same jeweler. A mix-up, though, sees Judy get the ring meant for Christine and thinking that Dauber just proposed.
** "Christmas of the Van Damned": Luther learns he has an extended family in the state, but his first meeting is a disaster and none of them want to come to his Christmas party.


Added DiffLines:

** In the GrandFinale, when Hayden and Christine go back to the old Minnesota cabin, they find three squatters: [[Series/{{Newhart}} Larry, his brother Darryl, and his other brother Darryl]]. Barry Kemp created both shows.


Added DiffLines:

* IGaveMyWord: In one episode, Hayden tells the parent of a prospective student that he promised Dauber's mother that he would ensure he graduated. This was still at a point when Dauber hadn't yet graduated, so Hayden notes that he's still trying to make good on this.


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: In "Christmas Brains," Stuart's family has a tradition of the Christmas Wish--wearing a festive hat and telling the group what you want most of all. Hayden thinks this is stupid and looks ready to say so, but when it's finally his turn, he quietly expresses his regret over the recent break-up with Christine and blames himself for it.

''Coach'' is an American {{sitcom}} that ran on {{ABC}} from 1989 to 1997. It starred Craig T. Nelson as Hayden Fox, a successful but insensitive college football coach in Minnesota. His assistant coaches include his old friend Luther (Jerry Van Dyke) and the much younger "super senior" Dauber (Creator/BillFagerbakke).

* {{Crossover}}: In 1997, Creator/{{ABC}} forced a crossover stunt on this and the other Wednesday night sitcoms - ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'', ''Series/{{Ellen}}'' and ''GraceUnderFire''. Titled "Viva Las Vegas," the idea was that characters from the four shows would be in UsefulNotes/LasVegas for different reasons and encounter each other. Only a couple characters from each series did this, however, and they amounted to [[TheCameo cameos]] at best. This series' contribution was "Viva Las Ratings" - [[BitingTheHandHumor mocking the network's stunt]]. Notably, Craig T. Nelson didn't support doing this, so Hayden did no crossing over. Luther wound up doing so instead - running into Drew and getting into a memorabilia bidding war with Mimi.

Added DiffLines:

* DoomItYourself: Luther and Dauber try to install a floor in Hayden's rec room on two separate occasions. The first time (Done off-camera), they get it so off-level that setting up a pool game caused all the balls to roll to one side of the table. When they tried to fix it, they lost control of the cement mixer, which buried them up to their ankles in concrete, which hardened before they could get out.
