* BlackBestFriend: Mike's partner, Carl, is both black and Mike's best friend.although it's less egregious than most examples since Carl has a decent amount of episodes revolving around him.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Carl in the last two episodes of season five. [[spoiler:His immaturity, which is his FatalFlaw pointed out several times in previous episodes in the series, ultimately costed him his relationship with Victoria (due to flip-flopping over proposing to her). Understandably, her family didn't want him to be at Mike and Molly's anniversary cruise so soon after what happened. Even though it visibly pained Mike to ask it of him, Carl didn't listen and instead showed up at the cruise anyway with a woman he met on Craigslist, to get back at Victoria. It ended with him (accidentally) knocking Molly's present to Mike overboard, and Mike finally getting fed up enough with him to denounce him as someone he doesn't seem to know anymore. And after all that, instead of even thinking about apologizing, Carl requested a transfer away from being Mike's partner and the season ends with Mike completely stunned.]]

** "Whatever Happened to Peggy Biggs". Molly uses Peggy as inspiration for a new book, but it doesn't go as well as she thought it would. She goes into the attic to look around and finds a hope chest that Peggy forbids her to open. [[spoiler: Peggy reluctantly shows her that it's filled items from her childhood that her father sent her after her mother died. Eventually she tells Molly of how hard life was on the farm, and that her father would get drunk and hit her mother. She left at fourteen to get away from him but has always felt guilty about leaving her mother behind with no one to protect her. Mike puts it best at the end: "I'm gonna go hug my mom."]]

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Peggy's sister Rosemary. Mike and the others are instantly taken in by her warm and friendly attitude, but it turns out that she was highly favored by their father, mocks Peggy for being a whiner and liar both then and now and that she brought her own neglect on herself (all of which was completely untrue). Needless to say, their reconciliation was short-lived and Peggy throws her out, and Mike quickly comes to his senses.

* FreudianExcuse: Starting in Season 5, we get to learn more about Peggy's background and why she's so angry and bitter. She was abused and neglected as a child while her sister was spoiled. She ran away with a man who she thought was the love of her life but separated with him for reasons unknown and ended up marrying Mike's father, who abandoned her to live with a stripper and left her to raise Mike on her own.

** The show did undergo a shift in focus when showrunners changed. It became much more slapstick oriented and rather than an ensamble, seemed to become The Molly Show... It seems to have shifted back somewhat to focus a bit more on the ensemble again rather than just Molly hijinks recently, though.

** Gardell speaks in his natural "yinzer" accent. It would be apparent to anyone who knows what they're listening for, but it's portrayed as being a Chicago accent.
