* UnwantedAssistance: Maude's attempts at proving she was not prejudiced tended to irk Florida quite a bit, since Florida just wanted to do her job. In Florida's first episode, Maude believed that having Florida come into the house through the back door was somehow offensive (even though that's where they parked), so Maude made Florida walk all the way around the house to the front door to bring in the groceries.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Quite cynical, unlike ''AllInTheFamily''. While the Bunkers and the Stivics (specially Archie and Mike) [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther cared for each other]] [[VitriolicBestBuds in spite of their many differences]], the Chadbourne-Hillard-Findlays were far from being an "ideal" family; Maude had housekeepers in spite of her beliefs, Walter was an alcoholic who often set off Maude's HairTriggerTemper with his chauvinism even when he tried to be progressive, and Carol and her mother would usually argue even if they had similar opinions. This was deliberately done by Norman Lear, who wanted to show the hypocrisies and neuroses of upper-middle-class liberals.

* CloserToEarth: Walter, at first. In the early episodes, he stays calm and rational in the face of Maude's bombast and impulsiveness. Before long, though, Walter's ego nearly matches Maude's and he suffers constant crises of insecurity.

* CloserToEarth: Pretty much averted. Both Maude and Walter and pretty frequently shown to be childish, petty, and self-involved. The only difference is that Maude is at an advantage as far as delivering crippling put-downs.

* CovertPervert: Vivian is fairly innocent but she takes an intense interest in anything prurient going on in Maude's life. Apparently there isn't a lot going on in her and Arthur's sex life.



* PetTheDog: Arthur says lots of truly callous things about his patients, the poor, and anyone he isn't personally close to. He practically exists to be a conservative thorn in Maude's side, and his conservative viewpoints are very broadly caricatured. But when the chips are down, he'll do almost anything for the Findlays. This is especially true if one of them shows signs of any illness.
