* DroppedAfterThePilot: Georgie's mammy.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Series creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason was always upfront about her liberal ideology and had always planned to make the Southern Democrat senator a StrawmanPolicial buffoon, but made it a point that the character would refuse money from [=PACs=] or lobbyists.

** Conchata Ferrell played John's ex-wife's lesbian lover in one episode of the first season, but she joined the series as a regular in the second season, playing straight-as-an-arrow Madeline. Both characters were therapists, but otherwise had no connection.
*** This was {{Lampshade}}d in an episode where said ex-wife visited; several people told Madeline about the resemblance and she became very anxious around John's former spouse.
** Similarly, Beth Broderick, who played Dee Dee Starr in the first season, appeared as Dee Dee's twin sister Lee Ann in two episodes of the second season. It's stated that Lee Ann grew up there in the Midwest, but it had previously been said that Dee Dee grew up in Texas. The explanation never made sense and they shouldn't have even bothered to attempt to HandWave the stunning resemblance away.

* NotEenBotheringWithTheAccent: John Ritter as John speaks in his standard style while most of the staffers working for the Senator have Southern drawls. Even John's own children have rather extreme accents.

* QuittingToGetMarried: Played surprisingly straight considering the show came out in 1991. In the first episode John had taken his two sons with him on his date the night before because their regular babysitter had gotten married and stopped babysitting.

* TheDanza: John Hartman and Billy Bob Davis, played by John Ritter and Billy Bob Thornton, respectively.



* TheOtherDarrin: In the third season, John's older son, Ben, suddenly morphed from a stocky blonde kid to a skinny brunette. He didn't even look like he could be Elliott's brother anymore. Briefly lampshaded when their mother comments on how much they've changed.

Early [[TheNineties 90s]] hybrid of DomCom and WorkCom, from the creator of ''DesigningWomen'' and starring John Ritter, Markie Post, and Billy Bob Thornton. The show centered around the work and family life of John Hartman and Georgie Ann Lahti.

* UnresolvedSexualTension and [[WillTheyOrWontThey Will They or Won't They]]: Mostly averted. It only takes a handful of episodes for John and Georgie to do the deed, and they're married by the end of the show's first season.
