* LampshadeHanging: In "Two Mammograms and a Wedding" Ellen tells guest star Janeane Garofalo that she owns a shop that sells books and coffee. Garofalo comments that it's 'very hip, very "''Series/{{Friends}}''"', to which Ellen quickly retorts "we were there first."

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In "Break Up," Laurie warns her daughter not to flip through every channel while watching TV, because she may come across something inappropriate. Ellen responds with, "I'm sure if there's something objectionable on, there'll be a warning." This was an obvious jab at ABC, which displayed parental advisory warnings before many of the lesbian-themed episodes broadcast that season.

** Audrey initially was a seemingly regular person but in season three she turns out to be a multi-million dollar heiress.

to:

** Audrey was initially shown as a married woman with a very negative disposition. The following year, her husband was a seemingly regular person but in dropped without explanation and her personality was considerably more bubbly and good-natured. Come season three three, she turns out to be a multi-million dollar heiress.


Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The show evolved with each passing year, but the first season stands out as the most different. Originally aired as ''These Friends of Mine'', with a long TitleSequence set to new-age music (with corresponding music cues), and a supporting cast that would eventually change completely. Anita (Maggie Wheeler) was dropped midway through production, while Holly (Holly Fulger) would be gone by the beginning of season two. The show didn't ultimately settle into its most recognizable format until season three.

* IsThisThingStillOn: That page quote? It was meant to be said in confidence, but Ellen was leaning right over an active microphone at an airport desk.

Added DiffLines:

** In case you were wondering, they were different for each season...
** Season 3 would have Ellen (and Paige one time) coming out and talking to the audience.
** Season 4 usually had Ellen interacting with a guest star, or a guest musician singing the show's theme.
** Season 5 had a chair outside of the house Ellen had bought InUniverse, with the title on it, and a different item on the table next to it.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Mockumentary}}: The [[GrandFinale show's final episode]] was one of these, treating Ellen as though she'd been on TV since the 1950's, claimed that her show originated several TV conventions (TwoTimerDate, EvilTwin, etc.) among other things.


Added DiffLines:

* PromotedToOpeningTitles: David Anthony Higgins (Joe) in Season 2 and Clea Lewis (Audrey) in Season 3.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: In the final episode, a {{Mockumentary}} of Ellen's career, Linda Ellerbee interviews her about "The Puppy Episode," with Ellen noting how it broke TV taboo's by revealing that she was 35. Ellerbee then notes about her coming out in the episode, with Ellen saying the studio "spun it that way."
