** One of the less successful ones has Adam constantly making reference to adding an F to his name to differentiate from the other Adam Goldberg at his school. Halfway through the season and they've pretty much run it into the ground. ''The Spencer's Gifts'' had a clever reworking of the gag though that [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] how tiresome it had gotten.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: Inverted at times with Erica as she's not a huge fan of Barry and Lainey together, but she knows how happy they make each other and will support them on occasion.
** Pretty much everyone (at least Beverly, Adam, Barry and Lainey) are rooting for Erica to figure out a way to be with Geoff. Murray is the earliest example given that when Geoff was into Erica and she didn't want to reciprocate his feelings, Murray supported the idea of them being together because Geoff was someone safe that he wouldn't have to worry about Erica being with.

** "A Christmas Story" confirms that the Goldbergs celebrate Hanukkah. Their neighbours the Kremps are awkwardly unsure about whether inviting a neighbouring family of a clearly different cultural background to ''Christmas'' celebrations is giving offence.

* AnachronismStew[=/=]ComicBookTime: The show refuses to say specific years, as each episode begins with present-day Adam saying the date followed by "1980-something".

** The closest any character comes to explicitly mentioning the year is in the episode "Wingmom". During a conversation with Adam, Erica tells him that Pops is 80 years old, and that he was born in 1903...you do the math. (WordOfGod is that this exchange was worded very carefully however, so as to leave open the possibility that it was an exaggeration.)

* ItsAlwaysSpring[=/=]CaliforniaDoubling: Some episodes are explicitly dated to wintertime, but except for the third-season episode "A Christmas Story" there is never any snow on the ground, the leaves are always out on the trees, and the characters never wear heavy coats. This is in suburban Philadelphia.
** Finally averted in "Snow Day" when it's all about the kids finally getting a snow day from school.

* NamesTheSame: Since entering high school, Adam has had trouble with an older student due to having the same name.



* OneOfUs: Adam and Dave Kim. Also Erica, though she desperately hopes nobody finds out.



* RealitySubtext: In season four, Adam repeatedly asks people to refer to him as Adam F Goldberg in order to avoid being confused with another kid at school named Adam Goldberg. While it works as a joke within the context of the show, the real reason for this is to be a light-hearted TakeThat to real-life actor Adam Goldberg, who has angrily complained about being confused with the shows similarly named creator.
