** Most of the "Disneyland" episode takes place at that attraction, owned by ABC's parent company. And once again a themed commercial appeared within the program, this time for ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' ''World'', a new attraction in Disney World. The episode itself averts this, however, as it contains several quips about the long wait times and amount of walking involved in the park, and also pays tribute mostly to older attractions like the Dapper Dans and Hall of Presidents.

** NotAllTropesAreBad: As this was one of the first shows to have a main gay couple, during a time where it was viewed as very controversial, the creators purposely wrote Mitch and Cam the same as a straight couple with a baby. Whilst a few criticisms came up, many pointed out that the fact that people wanted Mitch and Cam to be more affectionate proves how real and normal a couple they are.

** The show was criticized by the gay community when Mitchell and Cameron hugged each other after a reunion at an airport, in contrast to straight couple Phil and Claire kissing. Of course, some noted that none of the couples seem overly affectionate with each other but this was a big sticking point.
** Another big problem was the season one Valentine's Day episode, where Mitchell and Cameron were relegated to helping Manny in his own romantic subplot rather than having one of their own, like everyone else. Later rescued somewhat by them getting a more relationship-based story in the Season four Valentine's special - while that particular episode didn't feature much in the way of physical affection between the couple, it culminated in Cameron borrowing Phil's [[RunningGag Clive Bixby]] persona and pretending to pick up Mitchell in the hotel bar.
** "The Kiss" brings notice to this. The explanation given is that Mitch was never comfortable expressing affection physically in front of people and feels that when Cam does it, he's being smothering (which is suspiciously convenient).

** In "First Days" while pretending to be George Washington, Cam pretended to be confused about why the class were dressed in 21st century attire and to think they were trappers from the Canadian provinces. He then asked if they were, "here to sell [their] beavers?"
