* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Carl Dixon. Florida got married to Carl at the end of the 1976-1977 season and planned to move to Arizona to tend to Carl's chronic health issues; the storyline was planned to explain Esther Rolle's coming departure from the show. At the beginning of the 1978-1979 season, Florida had returned ... without Carl, and with no explanation for his absence. The reason for this was that Rolle agreed to return to the show, but only if changes were made, one of them being that there would [[{{Unperson}} be no record of Carl having ever existed]]. (Rolle thought it was implausible for the devoutly Christian Florida to marry someone who was an avowed atheist, and also felt that Florida moved on much too quickly after James' death.) According to TheOtherWiki , a deleted scene shows Willona asking Florida about Carl. Florida shakes her head, implying that Carl passed away from cancer during her absence. The reason for the move to Arizona was a spot on Carl's lung.

* AngryBlackMan: James and Michael. Though Michael was a much straighter example, James being [[HairTriggerTemper angry in the more traditional sense]]. [[ExecutiveMeddling For Michael, this pretty much vanished in later seasons.]]

* FairForItsDay: In addition to the above VD episode, Florida's dismay of the eponymous "Black Jesus" painting, which she considered blasphemous. Her pushback on the idea of a non-white Jesus would've been far more common during the 1970s, especially with someone of Florida's age. Though she seemed to be less dismayed by the RaceLift than the fact that JJ made Jesus look like Ned The Wino.
