* AmbiguouslyGay: Martin's best friend Padraic in several episodes, such as when he caddies for Liam and gives him a "supportive" pat on the butt. On the other hand, he gets a girlfriend on his first day of secondary school, though this is thanks to having a knowledge of ''DirtyDancing''. It's further expanded upon with a VisualPun of him sleeping in a closet.
* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: George Gerschwin talks like a typical Prohibition-era toughguy. This is likely intentional, as this was the era that Joe apparently grew up in and George is the product of his imagination.

* IrishTravellers: A family of them moves into the field next to the Moones' house. While Debra and Liam get everything off the lawn so it won't be stolen, the usual tropes regarding stereotypical travellers are subverted; They're a fairly well-meaning family and Martin even gets his first kiss from the daughter.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Father Linehan, the progressive priest who shows a surprising tolerance for most religions and teen pregnancy, takes issue to two things: imaginary friends, which he calls Martin on for bringing his up in his debut episode, and Protestants.
