* TheAllegedCar: Earl's "perfectly good 1973 El Camino with a 1977 door and a 1987 Camaro transmission." It won't go over 40 miles per hour ever since Randy put gum in the gas tank.

Also, the driver has to keep one foot over a hole in the floor in order to prevent the car from filling with exhaust. This turns out to be a particularly useful anti-theft device on at least one occasion.

The show ran from 2005 to 2009 before it was cancelled after four seasons. seasons. Several rival networks expressed interest in picking up the show after its cancellation, though this would have resulted in near-universal pay cuts, and so the show ended with no real resolution and several unresolved plot devices, leaving it in a territory and cult status similar to FreaksAndGeeks.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: When Earl [[spoiler:falsely confesses to Joy's crime. First of all, the fact that Joy's prints are mentioned as being also on the truck would mean she at the very least would be an accessory to the crime, the fact that she jumped bail and escaped to Mexico is also a major felony and her star witness deciding to suddenly confess at the very least would require a retrial to rule out Earl making a false confession. All-in-all, Joy ''still'' would have done some jail-time for her either being part of the crime or the felonies she committed while attempting to resist arrest. ** Also, Ruby would have been pretty much required to not do anything about her crush on Earl, because he's the ex-husband of her client, creating a conflict of interests]].

* HardWorkFallacy: Earl gets a promotion from docker to appliance salesman based on hard work and determination, despite teasing from everyone else...and wins their respect. (The episode is a parody of an example in ''{{Rudy}}'', even featuring a few of the actors from that movie.)

** Similar to the first example, and early episode had Earl deal with an angry, religious old woman who became a nun after Earl's walkie-talkie hit the same frequency as her hearing aid and Earl pretended to be God, ordering her to do things for him and the others. When Earl revealed the truth, she left the nunnery, gave up on God, and returned to the trailer park, angrier than before. Earl's speech about her (and everybody around her) being happier when she was a nun made her realize he was right.
