* YouGoGirl: Eve becomes the placekicker for her high school's football team in season 4. As discussed above, it's deconstructed as there was no opposition from the other players and Eve hates the pressure everyone else puts on her for representing women.

* DeconstructedTrope: "Rediscover America" is one of the JackieRobinsonStory[=/=]YouGoGirl tropes. Everyone keeps praising Eve for her performance as her high school football team's kicker and how inspirational it is for women everywhere. On the other hand, Eve hates being singled out by the press and would rather have people not make a big deal of it and treat her just like the other players. Eventually the pressure of representing women gets to her and her performance suffers as a result.

* MilestoneCelebration: Downplayed, the fifth season episode "Ring Up" was the 100th episode of the series. It got a few articles on the subject but wasn't treated as a monumental occasion. Still, it did have a major moment of the series as Kyle ends up proposing to Mandy.

* GoneHorriblyRight: In the fifth season finale, Mandy suggests that she and Kyle stay at the Baxter home after they get married. Neither Mike or Vanessa are happy about the idea, but taking a chance on Kyle's hesitation (he's lived on his own terms since he was 16) they suggest a trial period to see how well everyone likes the scenario, expecting it to implode. To their surprise, Kyle's friendly demeanor and eagerness to be part of the family was infectious, as such they loved having him around. The downside was Mandy got annoyed at having to share him.



* HappilyMarried: Mike and Vanessa.

to:

* HappilyMarried: Mike and Vanessa. They have their disputes but they always come back to loving each other dearly. A young sponsor visiting their home even commented on how quickly they resolved an argument.

Added DiffLines:

** Mike and Joe (played by Jay Leno) are a more prominent example. Joe is something of TheThingThatWouldNotLeave and Mike is genuinely annoyed by him, but he doesn't have many friends to talk about cars with and he respects Joe's talents as a mechanic. Enough to hire him on to Outdoor Man to service their vehicles.

* RunningGag: Whenever Kristin tells Mandy she needs her help with something, Mandy always assumes it's to upgrade Kristin's wardrobe and proceeds to make various insults about it before Kristin tells her it's something else.

Considered a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Series/HomeImprovement'' due to being an Allen vehicle where he plays similar characters as a father obsessed with preserving and passing down manhood and has a public forum as part of their jobs to share their views on the episode's subject matter. While this show has never been a hit with critics like its predecessor, it has done well enough in the ratings to warrant five seasons and over 100 episodes and is one of the most notable [[AvertedTrope aversions]] of the FridayNightDeathSlot in this age of television.
