** Giuseppe's, despite doing very well after Gordon's intervention, was hit hard by a recession. During his year-later revisit, he learns that the owners are about to lose their house, and a month later, they end up having to close down. However, the family is closer than ever (something that none of them would have ever thought possible before Gordon came into their lives) and remain hopeful for the future.

* FalseRapeAccusation: After the show Amy starting to tell everyone that during the shooting Gordon would attempt to sexually assault her and Sammy stated this was the "real reason" they "kicked him out". Unusual for this trope though, absolutely nobody believed them.

* TheInspectorIsComing: One of the few things positive Gordon states about the restaurant is how clean and well organized the place is. However it is revealed that Amy and Sammy severely cleaned the place up for his coming arrival. Which is something one actually has to hand to them as that is something that few restaurants have done despite knowing he is coming.

* MyNaymeIs: The husband's name is pronounced "Sammy" but spelled "Samy."



* PlayingTheVictimCard: Amy and Sammy fully believe that they are the victims of bullies rather than the SmallNameBigEgo PsychopathicManChild DramaQueen {{Hypocrite}}s that they are.

** One of the UK episodes featured a chef that had been drinking due to job pressures and had to go to the hospital during filming due to mild cirrhosis. Gordon was forced to bring up the fact that this is something of a major problem among chefs, especially those with stressful jobs

** A big deal is made over firing head chef Trevor in ''Mangia Mangia'' because he admitted to using drugs. He's only on those drugs in the first place because the owner and her daughter verbally abuse him daily, but neither is called out for driving him to addiction.

** Gordon described the menu at Park's Edge as "fusion confusion", and that was before he tasted an overly-spicy grilled Caesar salad with ''grilled lettuce'' and a sesame grilled salmon with a ''red onion and strawberry ragù'', sticky rice, and ''green curry sauce''. The chef/owner had opened a restaurant right out of culinary school and hadn't quite got the hang of which flavours work together.

* VetinariJobSecurity: A recurring issue is that someone on the kitchen staff will be insufferable and/or a liability but will still manage to avoid being fired. Usually they keep their job because the owner can't find a replacement, though sometimes it'll be because the owner(or whoever is their immediate superior) is too much of an ExtremeDoormat to fire them.

* {{Homage}}; In the Spanish Pavilion episode, Gordon points out the lobsters in the tank from which he is expected to make his dinner selection have something wrong with them. One is suspiciously immobile and static at the bottom of the tank. Gordon voices a professional opinion to the effect that it just perhaps might be dead. Without missing a beat, the [[DeadpanSnarker maitre d]] replies "No, it's just sleeping.'' There follows a terse discourse on how to identify a dead lobster. Gordon does refrain from commenting that it would remain dead even if you put five million volts through it, and somehow manages to avoid [[Series/MontyPythonsflyingCircus referring to ex-lobsters]]. But you can fel it hovering, unsaid, in the air.
