** Mitchell to Jay
* WickedStepmother: Claire occasionally feels this way about Gloria. However, the show overall actually presents an [[AvertedTrope Aversion]] of this trope, since even though Gloria is the same age as her step-kids she's shown to be far more involved and caring than the woman who raised them. For example, [[spoiler:Gloria walks Mitchell down the aisle at his wedding when Dede was a no-show.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Manny, to the point a woman online mistook him for an older guy. Alex believes she's this, but she is actually very immature.
* WhamEpisode: The third season finale "Baby on Board" ends with Gloria revealing she's pregnant.
** "Under Pressure" focuses on Alex and the anxieties she's faced due to school pressure.
** "Message Received" concluded with Mitchell arguing with Jay over his wedding, culminating in Mitchell uninviting Jay from the wedding.

** Ariel Winter is the only regular to be absent from at least one episode of every complete season so far (she missed several episodes in season two for unknown reasons (some people think it's because she was under fourteen and therefore subject to child labor laws - Nolan has been absent for quite a few episodes too for what many suspect the same reason).
** Sarah Hyland wasn't completely missing for several episodes early in season four but she appeared via Skype only. She was missing presumably because she had a kidney transplant in April of 2012, yet her in-character reason was totally understandable.

* StrawVulcan: In "Lifetime Supply", Jay and Manny go the horse track with Manny's father, Javier ([[Series/LawAndOrder Benjamin Bratt]]). Jay chooses his horses based on the information in the ''Daily Racing Form''. Javier bets on a horse because "I looked him in the eyes, and he told me this would be his day". Guess who wins? To add insult to injury, Jay chooses a horse this way and ''it'' wins ... only to be disqualified.

** In "Ten Years Later", it features a flashback of Jay and Gloria's wedding that was previously discussed in "The Incident", and ends with the family singing a song that was also featured in that same episode. It also references Cam hogging the spotlight with his drumming, that was shown also in "Travels with Scout."

* BestFriend: Andy is this to Haley, being the only relationship that developed from a friendship. Unlike her other relationships, Andy didn't view Haley as a trophy to be won, but as a person struggling to find her way in need of a friend. Likewise, Haley loved Andy just for him, not how handsome he was.

** S9 Ep04, Claire treats Alex and Ben the exact same way that Jay treated Claire and Phil when they were first dating.



* GoodAdulteryBadAdultery: PlayedWith. With Andy and Beth's relationship, it has been long implied that Beth has been cheating on him for years, [[AllTakeAndNoGive treats him horribly,]] [[DomesticAbuse emotionally abuses him,]] [[ManipulativeBastard only to break-up with him to force Andy to win her back.]] When Beth is around Haley and Andy, she gets extremely possessive of him and makes several implied death threats to Haley, whilst appearing very sweet to everyone else. Throughout the show, it's been an open question if Beth even loves Andy at all, and is merely manipulating him because of his NiceGuy status. Andy cheating on Beth with Haley is due simply to Andy being in love with a girl who reciprocates his feelings and actually experiencing a healthy relationship for once in his life. Additionally, Andy expresses remorse over his actions, whilst Beth covers up for years the fact that she's been cheating on him with ''two guys.''
