* FriendlyScheming: One Halloween episode has Dan casually "selling his soul" to a man claiming to be the devil, but then getting more and more frantic when the guy starts displaying encyclopedic knowledge of Dan's past misdeeds. It turns out that it's all a prank on Mac's part and Dan faints in relief.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Christine appeared in one episode of Season Two before becoming a main character in Season Three and for the rest of the show's run. This was because the producers desperately wanted Markie Post to be a regular but she had other commitments and was only available for that one episode. The character of Christine was created specifically with the intention of being brought back once Post's schedule cleared up.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: The whole cast (of the most consistent line-up from seasons 4-9) except for Mac (who was just snarky). Christine was prudish and old-fashioned, but those weren't bizarre enough personality quirks to qualify. Everyone else? Well...

* CrapsackWorld: The world in which Harry Stone was never born in "Hey, Harry, F'Crying Out Loud--It's a Wonderful Life...Sorta". Apparently Harry's friendship was the only thing keeping Dan Fielding from becoming a CardCarryingVillain and taking over New York City from behind the scenes.

* GeniusBruiser: Bull Shannon, in the earlier seasons, when his character was meant to look like dumb muscle but was actually quite well-read and insightful. One episode even had his intelligence being discovered by a group of research scientists who recruit him to help in their work...until he reveals that he hates doing research full time, loves being a bailiff, and goes back to his old job (but still helps them out on occasion).

*** He also almost got elected to Congress once...ending in an exact tie (forcing a run-off election) due to a suicidal man who voted for Dan then killed himself, leaving a note explaining that the world was so screwed up it deserved "a man like Fielding." (His opponent turns out to be a gorgeous woman, and the two of them spend the night of the run-off in a hotel together. Dan's description of the run-off results: "Honey, you're kicking my head in.")

* ParanormalEpisode: In an episode, Harry used his magic hobby to convince another character that he was exorcising some evil spirits, at one point using a book gimmicked to shoot flames when you open it. After it's all over, Art (the janitor) comes in saying "sorry I'm late" and gives Harry the prop burning book. So...what was up with that other book?

*** [[spoiler: He was initially much worse off after the fire, until Quon Lee talked the building owner into settling for the damages...which happened to be all the money they had. This was a change from her previous ways, as she was the one who actually accumulated all that debt, mostly because she just didn't have the background to understand about credit cards when she first showed up.]]

* AdamWesting: Mel Tormé in his later appearances, for instance, it turned out his home was literally filled with awards including a keyring of keys to the cities, and that he would every year sneak into the bailiff's christmas choir in disguise and scat his way through carols.
