* BlackBestFriend: Al's buddy and fellow NO MA'[=AMer=] Griff became his co-worker at the shoe store in later seasons. Oddly enough, after Luke, the original shoestore sidekick left, almost all of Al's subsequent shoe store employees were black. The sole exception was Mr. Zippy, a chimp who began working at the shoe store in the very last episode aired, and dressed exactly like Al.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Jefferson would often laugh at Al's cracks at Marcy, especially the chicken jokes, though a quick DeathGlare would immediatly shut him up. By comparison, Steve almost never laughed at the jokes, presumably due to how similar he and Marcy were.

** Another classic is "It's a Bundyful Life." A parody of the Jimmy Stewart movie, except in this case Al's guardian angel is Sam Kinnison. After seeing how wonderful Peggy and the kids' lives would have been without him, he chooses to live. The reason? [[spoiler: They have put him through so much misery, he feels it's only fair that they get stuck with him.]]

** In a fantasy scene of Al's, he is wearing his football uniform with several scantily clad ladies attending to him. Enter scantily clad lady number four, who proceeds to hang up her "jacket" (a see-through negligee robe) on Peggys ''severed and mounted head.'' The ladies then begin to ask Al to tell them more stories of his glory. One of them even asks if they should go upstairs and "froog" for him. A later fantasy of Peggy's is the exact same thing, gender flipped, with Al's head serving as a coatrack.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: It took a few seasons for the show to settle into the format it's remembered for.
** Al and Peg weren't quite as antagonistic towards each other, even being affectionate towards each other over the regular course of a day rather than only under extremely special circumstances.
** Peg's hair was more natural (in fact it was Katey Sagal's own hair). It wasn't until Season 3 and Flanderdization started kicking in that it became the ridiculous bouffant that people remember (and Sagal started wearing a wig as a result).
** Peg used to do housework!
** Kelly wasn't a complete dimwit in the first few seasons, just too preoccupied with her social life to focus on school. It took a few years before she became an idiot with an extremely limited brain capacity.
** Marcy was a genuine prude for the first couple of seasons before the writers started giving her a highly-repressed kinky side.

** The first time the theme from ''Series/TheFactsOfLife'' is played, Al is singing along and enjoying it.

* {{Socalization}}: In the very first episode they refer to a local radio station as "K-Rock." That'd be for stations West of the Mississippi. All local radio and TV stations in Chicago (the location of the series) have call signs beginning with a W.
