* UnreliableNarrator: Either that, or the fictional verse the series is set in is where it is O.K. for waste collectors to break your windows and jump around beating on trash cans.

** It's very possible that the episode where he tries to play a cop for an all-Jewish remake of ''Film/TheGodfather'' is a reference to his role in ''ParksAndRecreation''.

** "Elevator (Part 1)" touches on the very real fear of being separated from one's child for a lengthy period of time in a public setting. Louis is with his kids in a subway car when Jane, believing herself to still be in a dream, decides to walk away from Louie and Lilly as the doors are closing. Frantic, Louis yells for someone to stop the train while Jane assuredly yells at him that she will stay exactly in place until Louis comes to find her. From there, we follow Louis and Lilly as they're forced to ride the train to the next stop, get onto a different train to take them back to Jane, and sprint from the subway station to Jane's location across the street. Meanwhile, at one point, Jane is approached by a man, and the audience isn't sure if he'll take her away from her spot or not. When Louis finally reaches Jane, it offers a moment of relief and sadness, as Louis proceeds to yell at and shake Jane, admonishing her for acting so irresponsibly (leading her to cry). The action is rough to watch, but completely understandable for any parent scared to death of a similar situation happening to them and their kids.

** His dad gets one in a flashback to when Louie was thirteen. With Louie getting into drugs and becoming increasingly distant, his mother calls in his absent father, to help straighten him out. His father forcefully announces that everything is going to change and he's going to treat his parents with respect. Louie tells him in no uncertain terms to shut the hell up and get the fuck out because he's a useless loser who was never around and doesn't get to pretend to be a dad now. Louie's dad does as he's told.

* MistakenForRacist: Louie sees an art exhibit with a button labeled "PUSH" and even though Pamela [[SchmuckBait warns him not to obey the sign]], he does. It causes the exhibit plays a loud recording of someone loudly shouting the N-Word, which makes people in the exhibition stare at him as Louie tries to explain it wasn't him.
