* SuccessfulSiblingSyndrome: Jamie's sister Lisa is much less successful than Jamie is and is insecure over it - all the more so because Jamie is the ''younger'' sister.

* YourCheatingHeart: Very closely subverted. Jamie kisses her co-worker. When she confesses to Paul, he admits that he came very close to going home with a woman he met at an event. The mutual near infidelities force them to admit that they're having serious problems and they nearly break up. Paul is even goaded by his friends into performing the TropeNamer song at a karaoke bar in that episode.

* BottleEpisode: Plenty of episodes never left Paul and Jaime's apartment, and since most of the series was about everyday married life it was wholly appropriate. ''One'' episode however ("The Conversation") never left a single camera angle.

* Creator/MelBrooks: Played Paul's Uncle Phil. You can tell that most of his scenes are just him improvising most of his lines, the credit stingers actually have different takes with the cast cracking up.



* OneHourWorkWeek : Presumably Jamie works full time, but Paul seems to be home an awful lot between projects.

** NBC also liked to do cross over stunt nights when all the sitcoms in that night's line up would be self contained stories related to a larger arc (Generally to boost ratings during sweep periods). In one such instance ''Mad About You'''s Jamie tries to steal cable TV reception and manages to black out New York City. The characters of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' and ''MadmanOfThePeople'' then dealt with the blackout in their own shows. Somewhat typically, ''{{Seinfeld}}'' didn't participate in the gimmick, and just ran a regular episode.

** It also turns out that Paul used to live in the apartment now inhabited by ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'''s Cosmo Kramer, which creates a weird CelebrityParadox when a later season finds that program's George and Susan in bed watching a ''MadAboutYou'' episode!
