Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: Closely subverted. Jack clearly has feelings for Susan from the very beginning, but cannot act on them due to his marriage and being uncertain if she reciprocates. His wife clearly believes otherwise, outright blaming Susan for breaking her and Jack up after the couple finally divorces.

Despite its shortcomings, the show managed to run for four seasons and enjoyed a semi-healthy run in syndication. However, the one-two punch of Judd Nelson's departure and cast member David Strickland's suicide necessitated an exhaustive {{Retool}}, moving the characters to a grimy warehouse in Chinatown. The show's ratings, nothing much to begin with, plummeted and NBC mercifully pulled the plug.

Ultimately, any show in which you can say Judd Nelson is wasted and replaced in its final season by a washed-up [[Creator/MontyPython Eric Idle]] has little going for it. The show's only real claim to notability was that [[DamnedByFaintPraise it made Kathy Griffin a star]].

* TheUnfavorite: When Susan essentially begs Jack for a job in the pilot, Jack notes that she left his brother at the alter and deeply embarrassed his parents. Apparently, Jack was this because he then immediately offers Susan a better job and hires her.

* DateMyAvatar: Todd subscribing to a Lesbian dating site, having reasoned that his lust for women [[InsaneTrollLogic qualifies him as one]]. Predictably, his 'date' turns out to be another horny male.

A WorkCom about a woman who leaves a man at the altar, finds herself without prospects, until her ex-fiance's brother takes a gamble and hires her as a journalist. Originally conceived as a starring vehicle for Brooke Shields, but in actuality it ended up being a retread of ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' which ran the complete gamut of {{office}} humor cliches roughly three or four times.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: After David Strickland committed suicide, his character Todd [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim died with him]]. This was addressed in the Season Three finale, in which the cast spends the entire episode looking for Todd. Each scene is interspersed with the series regulars addressing the camera ''OurTown''-style and sharing memories of him. The episode ends with the cast sitting in a circle with a telephone between them, still waiting to hear news of Todd's whereabouts. And then the phone rings.
