Added DiffLines:

* CouchGag: TheStinger of each show consisted of Belvedere making an entry in his journal which was often funny or ironic. Usually this was in his bedroom at a desk, but if the episode ended with the cast somewhere else, [[CrazyPrepared he always managed to have it.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Angela always getting Belvedere's name wrong. In fact, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he knew something was up]] the one time she got it right.

* {{Hypocrite}}: In one episode, Kevin is challenged by his fraternity to bring the ugliest date he can find to a frat party. He decides to take his nerdy, HollywoodHomely lab partner[[note]]Fun fact: the actress who played her was Nancy Cartwright.[[/note]]. But then he ends up actually liking her, and decides not to take her, but she finds out (not knowing that it's a contest to see who can find the ugliest date) and has her feelings hurt, so Kevin relents and takes her. At the party, when she finds out that it was just a contest to find the ugliest date, she mercilessly chews out a very remorseful and embarrassed Kevin, and refuses to see him again. However, with her parting words, she reveals that [[spoiler: She had won a contest with her science club to see who could find the dumbest lab partner]].
