* ShoutOut: The scene in "Solace" where the TV automatically turns to SpongeBobSquarePants might be a reference to a scene in ''Film/{{Zathura}}'' where one of the brothers was watching sports and one of them changes the channel to Spongebob unexpectedly (Although, unlike Parenthood, the boy changed it during the middle of an episode, not the intro theme like the Parenthood episode).

* ActorAllusion:
** One episode has Haddie and Amber talking about a movie that stars Michael Cera. Guess who played Michael Cera's girlfriend back on ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' (and kicks Cera's ass in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld''). Mae Whitman's character also wear a banana costume for Halloween, which is a reference to what is worn by the employees on Arrested Development at their Frozen Banana stand.
** Lauren Graham's character Sarah's first (albeit short-lived) love interest is a barista, and later on she dates her daughter's teacher, who is younger than her. In Graham's starring role in Series/GilmoreGirls, her character was a coffee addict who eventually fell in love with the man who served her coffee (He was a diner owner and served her food also, but she came in just for coffee often), and she dated early on-- and got engaged to-- her daughter's young teacher.
** In Season 3 Alex is explaining to Haddie why he doesn't think he should go to a high school party. Max says it's not a good idea because of the underage drinking, which he knows about because he watches FridayNightLights. Max is telling this to Alex, played by Michael B. Jordan who not only was a star on Friday Night Lights for two seasons but who also got his role on Parenthood through Jason Katims' executive producer position at both shows.



* CastIncest: Lauren Graham and Peter Krause, who play siblings Sarah and Adam, are currently dating.



* TheDanza: Max Burkholder as Max Braverman.



* DawsonCasting: Avoided with most of the teen characters, but Max is 12 playing 8 at the start of the series and Mae Whitman is 21 playing a 15-year-old.
** It gets particularly Egregious with Max when the actor's voice gets deeper and the character is suppose to be in 5th grade.



* HeyItsThatGuy: [[GilmoreGirls Lorelai Gilmore]] is [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Katara's]] mother!



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Maura Tierney was originally cast as Sarah, but she developed breast cancer during production of the first season, which led to the role being recast with Lauren Graham and the series premiere being pushed back from September 2009 to March 2010.

* NewJobAsThePlotDemands:
** Amber changes her job once a season or more to whatever would be more convenient for interacting with the other family members.
** Sarah also has a pretty fluctuating resume throughout the series, including bartending, graphic design, playwriting, photography, and being a landlord.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Max likes Skittles. A lot. He is repeatedly bribed by his family throughout the series to perform mundane tasks in exchange for skittles, and once won a student presidential campaign using his desire to have more vending machines containing skittles to be available in school.

* CringeComedy: Though a lot of the time it's just plain ol' cringe. The show does love it's horrifyingly uncomfortable moments.
