** Jerry is perceived by most of the cast as ineffectual and bumbling. He also has a ridiculously attractive wife, equally attractive children (Chris dates one for some time and feels he may not be attractive enough for her), and a beautiful house.

* MeetTheInLaws:
** Leslie hosts a party to celebrate her and Ben getting engaged. Things go swimmingly at first... until Ben's divorced parents (plus his dad's new wife, who also happens to be the mother of his future half-brother) show up. Things get tense at many points throughout the episode, forcing the duo to put their foot down and demand that they put their differences aside until the weather is over. Later in that series, the duo just decide to get married spontaneously, citing the absence of their parents as a plus.
** This happens when Andy meets April's parents at their wedding, although things go surprisingly well and the drama's more or less non-existent.

** Subverted with Ron. Everything about him is RatedMForManly, but he admires strong women to the point of being an AmazonChaser (and at times a HenPeckedHusband). He does feel the need for the occasional all-male retreat, though.

* TheAce: Justin, who seems to be an ace lawyer and a globe-trotter who impressed everyone around him (except for Andy and Mark, who are mostly threatened by Ann's admiration of him). However, Ron later deconstructs Justin's personality at the end of "Galentine's Day" and points out that despite all of his apparent perfections, at his core Justin was a "tourist", a selfish person who was more concerned about the stories he formed rather than the people he was helping, which leads to Leslie breaking it off for him.
