** A dark aversion. In the episode where Will confesses to marrying a girl with the intent of marriage, Phil shows disappointment, and also threatens to hurt Will, in a comedy sequence, set 3 years later, finds a vicious way to hurt Will. This obviously doesn't happen and is just a joke.

* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Subverted with the death of Judge Carl Robertson. Will and Phil (who agreed to do his eulogy despite being humiliated by him in an election) play the trope straight, but everyone else at the funeral openly comments about what a lousy guy Robertson was. Will eventually chastises everyone for speaking ill of the dead. One of them asks who he is and Will responds that he's the one who killed him (Robertson died from a heart attack immediately after Will told him to "drop dead"). [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing Everybody claps.]] Will eventually gives up, saying "tough crowd."

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Judge Robertson. The Banks only went to the funeral because Philip considered Robertson an old friend, and he dragged the family there. Since Philip forgot the eulogy he was supposed to read, he asked anyone present to share a happy memory of the judge. When no one volunteered, he asked if anyone remembered the judge, the first speaker said [[HangingJudge the judge sent him to jail for a crime he did not commit]] and wanted to be sure the judge was dead. The second speaker was the late judge's gardener, whom not only [[BadBoss did Robertson stiff, but tried to have deported.]] The final speaker was [[TheMistress Robertson's mistress,]] who also had no fond memories of the judge. When Will tried to guilt the audience by quoting part of [[ThemerchantOfVenice Sheilob's speech,]] the first speaker called Will on who he was he to tell them that. When Will said he was the one that "killed" Robertson, [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing the attendees applauded him and cheered.]]

** The gorgeous mother of Will's GirlOfTheWeek who seduces him is named [[Film/TheGraduate Mrs. Robertson]]. Not identical, but similar enough to make the reference obvious.

** Hilariously inverted earlier when Ashley talks to Will about it.
-->'''Ashley''': Didn't you have someone you believed in when you were a kid?
-->'''Will''': Yeah. Shaft.
-->'''Ashley''': Okay, do you remember how you felt when you found out Shaft was just a character in a movie?
-->'''Will''': Wha...what are you talking about? That was based on a real guy!
