* DepravedKidsShowHost: Georgie the Hippo from "Georgie Must Die". He may seem nice and understanding, if unbearably annoying to teenagers and adults, at first, but this is only a facade and he's really a greedy scumbag who only cares about the money he can get by having his impressionable audience buy his merchandise.

Earl proceeds to complain about Roy and his date ruining the mug by getting their greasy fingerprints and slobber all over it. Roy just happened to be entering the Sinclairs' house to return the mug as Earl was talking, and he isn't the least bit amused by what Earl said about him.

* AesopAmnesia: In "The Family Challenge", after both television sets are destroyed, Earl gets the family to participate on a game show where the prize is a television set. But after spending a month preparing for the game show, they find that they don't really care about television anymore. But after getting all the answers wrong, Earl is given the choice of battling the competing father (a mammal) in a sudden death round or answer a question he has no chance of getting right. While the rest of the family (except for Fran, who did not know that the television was the prize), Earl proves to Fran that he enjoyed the time he spent with his family by choosing the question. [[spoiler: He purposely gets it wrong by talking about how he himself learned that family is more important than TV, but then they win a consolation prize, a tiny TV, and soon the family is back to watching TV and ignoring Fran's desire to spend more time as a family.]]
