* OddlySmallOrganization: Considering their unimaginable wealth, the Darlings don't seem to put much money into their hiring budget. The entire family has a single lawyer and a single [[UniversalDriversLicense chauffeur/pilot]] between the lot of them; and despite the attendant workload of said positions, Nick and Clark end up [[TheMainCharactersDoEverything running a lot of other minor errands for the family]] as well.

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Nick, constantly. For example, given that his boss's wife was being prosecuted for murder at the time, you'd think the family's only lawyer would have better things to do than plan the twins' separate birthday parties.

* UnwantedSpouse: Patrick's wife, all of Karen's ex-husbands, and one presumes that Dutch's wife fell into this category. Brian's (ex-)wife, Mei Ling Hwa, is somewhat more complicated; initially she was presented as a frigid ballbreaker, but her scenes with Brian (and his breakdown after she leaves him) shows that there is ''at the very least'' a lot more mutal passion there than in any of the other examples. If anything this greater depth to their relationship might have backfired on the writers a little; more than a few fans have been frustrated that she was PutOnABus so early.
