Added DiffLines:

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Lisa and Jamie, respectively, and '''''how'''''.


Added DiffLines:

* LawOfInverseFertility: They struggle to conceive for an entire season despite nothing being wrong with either of them. They conceive when making love to reconcile after their estrangement.


Added DiffLines:

* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted. They see one after marital problems, despite having ostensibly reconciled, they realize there are still unresolved issues. Lisa also mentions seeing one.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ObnoxiousInLaws: Paul's mother constantly takes subtle and not-so-subtle potshots at Jamie. Especially bad as Paul's father adores her, and Jamie's parents (despite their own [[MyBelovedSmother smothering and manipulative]] ways) like Paul.

** 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!
