* ChromaKey: Darnell uses this to insert Joy into various heroic situations to convince a young faith healer that she is a good person. The situations become increasingly outrageous, including Joy congratulating George Bush and US soldiers in Afghanistan and praying with the Pope.

* BottleEpisode: The crew admitted that the ''Series/{{COPS}}'' and ''Inside Probe'' episodes were to trim the budget for the normally expensive episodes. Because they were aiming for a documentary-look, filming consisted mostly of the cast just reading through their lines for an entire scene, and then moving on to the next scene.
* BountyHunter: Jesse.

* ProstheticLimbReveal: In the backstory, Earl once slept with a woman who only had one leg. He didn't know she only had one leg until the next morning when she got out of bed. It freaked him out and he ran away, leading to #86 on the list: "Stole a car from a one legged girl."

* InstantlyProvenWrong: On one episode we find out that Earl and Joy once sold an AllegedCar to a man. Earl tries to right this wrong only to find out that the experience left the man bitter and pessimistic about society and seemingly plans to kill everyone. Earl tries to change his mind by showing him that people can be nice. Unfortunately, he tries to track down the car and finds that everyone who's owned it did the same thing as Earl and Joy. He later gets Darnell to pretend he was the last owner who sold the car for scrap used to build a playground. In the narration, Earl says that he thought karma would forgive this falsehood. But then the car that was supposedly scrapped drives by.

* NotReallyABirthScene: Joy wanted to induce labor because she was overdue and the pregnancy was hard on her, but her half-sister Liberty, for whom she was a surrogate, wanted her to do a 100% natural birth. Joy snuck to the hospital and tried to get herself induced, but Liberty (a wrestler) suplexed the doctor who had the needle full of Pitocin. Darnell got stuck with the needle, and went into "labor."
