** Rickety Cricket (real name Matthew) due to having loud rickety leg braces as a kid in school, the gang is the only people who still call him this.
** Ingrid Nelson, a former friend of Dee's from school was nicknamed "Fatty Magoo" because of her obesity. Sometime between high school and her debut episode, she [[FormerlyFat lost it all]]. Dee still desperately tries to keep the nickname going but is usually shot down by other people lampshading how it no longer makes sense.

Added DiffLines:

** Frank seems to like eggs (usually hardboiled) and is referenced in a few episodes. His interest in eggs occasionally goes beyond him just eating them; for example in "Paddy's Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens", he creates a green-painted "Paddy's Pub" egg as merchandise for the bar.

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: Dennis' diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder doesn't make sense. Symptoms of BPD include problems with regulating emotions and thoughts, impulsive and reckless behavior, and unstable relationships with other people. None of these apply to Dennis, who is the coolest and most responsible member of the group and has maintained relationships with the gang since at least high school. Given that Dennis is frequently shown to be charming, manipulative, meticulous and without emotion or empathy, as well as suffering breakdowns whenever his ego is challenged, he's more likely to have Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

* StagingAnIntervention: In the aptly titled "The Gang Gives Frank an Intervention", The Gang feels as though Frank is "going off the deep end," doing things like trying to have sex with his sister-in-law. They attempt to help him see what he's become, but unfortunately, The Gang's idea of doing so is to scream "Intervention!" repeatedly and make loud wailing noises (like a siren) while they insult him. They also try to stage impromptu interventions on Charlie for being illiterate, and Mac for banging Gail the Snail.

The show follows a group of friends, regularly called "the gang", which consists of [[HandsomeLech Dennis Reynolds]], [[TheLadette Deandra "Sweet Dee" Reynolds]], [[ThePigpen Charlie Kelly]], and [[UnfortunateNames Ronald "Mac" McDonald]]. They run Paddy's Pub, a struggling South UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}} Irish-themed dive bar. Dennis is the vain prep from a rich family. Dee is his shallow, shrill, and insecure sister. Charlie is the high-strung idiot savant who is obsessed with [[NoNameGiven the]] [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep waitress]] at a coffee shop. Mac is the [[MilesGloriosus wanna-be bruiser]] forever stuck in adolescence. In the second season, Creator/DannyDeVito joins the cast as Dennis and Dee's neglectful father Frank, a shady businessman who is drawn to the gang's depraved lifestyle.
