* ValuesDissonance: Dan's lecherous behavior pushed the limits of acceptability even for the time - even allowing for the exaggerated nature of the show's universe. In modern times, Dan libido ''might'' have been tolerated (though likely he would've been hit with multiple sexual harassment complaints, along with suspensions and mandatory counselling), but his habit of getting grabby would've gotten him fired with speed (if not arrested).

The fact that they had very little in common other than mutual sexual attraction didn't help either.

** The show liked gags like this, designed to yank the audience's collective chain. Other episodes had Bull somehow bring Harry's stuffed armadillo to life, and Bull turn into a child.
