* MoodWhiplash: The season 5 episode "Why Did the Fireman...?" has Laverne dating a fireman named Randy. On the night he plans to propose to her, he is interrupted several times in typical humorous fashion. The last interruption is a fire emergency that Randy has to respond to. He tells Laverne to go home and wait for him. She does... and is then told that Randy was killed in the fire. The rest of the episode takes a dark turn as Laverne must come to terms with Randy's death.

* DiagonalBilling: Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams in the opening titles, in television's first instance of this form of billing (it having been invented just two years earlier for ''Film/TheToweringInferno''). However the opening title "cheat" this billing in favour of Marshall in two ways: the title of the show is also oriented diagonally in the reverse order (top-left-to-bottom-right), making it impossible not to read the name Laverne before that of Shirley; in addition, as Marshall and Williams are credited on screen, their names are superimposed over their bodies in a scene of the two of them smiling for the camera - with Marshall standing on the ''left''. (It's good to be the sister of the show's creator and producer.)

Added DiffLines:

* TickleTorture: In the episode "Festival Part 1", Laverne pumps Shirley for $70 out of Shirley's vacation funds in order to help a guy she just met win a trip to Italy. When Shirley denies any knowledge of her vacation fund, Laverne recalls that she keeps money in her shoes as well. Shirley denies this too, stating all she has in her shoes are Zeno pads. After tricking Shirley into turning around, Laverne throws her over the armrest of the couch and rips both her shoes off. Laverne's assumption is correct, finding two $20 bills taped to the bottoms of her socks, and tickles her foot into letting go of the second $20 bill. Shirley submits and retrieves the remaining $30 after Laverne threatens to wrestle her for it.

** RealLife Example: Referencing this show when referring to the real Milwaukee has been known to push quite a few of these in Southeast Wisconsin. Milwaukee's Mayor Tom Barrett even quipped upon being elected that one of his main objectives was to let the rest of the world know that "Laverne & Shirley don't live here anymore." Now [[WebVideo/RedLetterMedia Mister Plinkett]] does.
