** It's not actually shown, but Ann [[NoodleIncident at one point]] apparently ate a whole cheesecake for Leslie, remarking to a surprised Ben that it was delicious and she could have downed 10 if she had to. She also combines this with WackyPregnancyCravings in Season 6.
* BiggusDickus: According to a doctor who gave him a physical, Jerry has one of these. The biggest he's ever seen, in fact.

** April Ludgate starts off as a DeadpanSnarker IceQueen, until Andy brings out her softer side. On another note, she starts off the series as something of an apathetic ProfessionalSlacker, but becomes more involved with her work more and more, becoming more ambitious and caring towards her coworkers.

** Andy gave everyone (except for himself and Ben) in the room code names that sounded like they were based on his sexual status with them. Donna's was "It was in a Dream Once" and Leslie's was "I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought about it."

* DressesTheSame: In a season 2 episode where there was a Halloween party at Ann's house, one of April's gay boyfriends asserted that he was dressed up as a straight person. Immediately afterward, Mark walks in wearing the same outfit. A few episodes previously, Leslie comments on Tom's pink shirt being effeminate, and to prove her point, holds up a shirt she was given by the local gay bar, which is the exact same shade/color.

*** And in "Leslie and Ron", the whiteboard Leslie uses is filled with references to things that occurred during this TimeSkip, such as the "Pikitis scandal" (referencing Greg Pikitis, who apparently managed to really cause some shit), and the "Sweetums trial" (it was only a matter of time before they were in court, but they still seem to be operating even after the TimeSkip, so....).

** In "94 Meetings," April, who is otherwise a smart, college-educated assistant for Ron, somehow forgets that March 31 exists, thereby causing the titular crisis.
