* ThrowItIn ** In the filmed episode "The Man From Space", a knob falls off of Ralph's spaceman costume while he tries to get Alice to guess what he's supposed to be. Alice picks it up and hands it to Ralph. Instead of stopping filming Gleason simply ad-libs, "Gimme that. That's my Denaturalizer", and the scene continues. ** In "Better Living Through TV", as Ralph and Norton rehearse a commercial to sell an all-purpose kitchen gadget, part of the gadget falls off. Gleason ad-libs by picking it up and saying, "Maybe we ought to say something about spear-fishing?" ** Trivia websites like IMDB have pointed out that a great deal of the show featured Throw It In moments. Apparently, Gleason had something of a photographic memory, and didn't like to rehearse, so he would only look at the script once before appearing live on air. When he forgot his lines, he would pat his stomach as a signal to the other actors, so they could cover for him. It often fell to Audrey Meadows to get the scene back on track; for instance, she would glance at the refrigerator when someone needed to cross to it.

* TheOtherDarrin: Audrey Meadows as Alice, with Pert Kelton as ThePeteBest. Kelton lost her job due to the blacklist. Also Joyce Randolph replaced Elaine Stritch (yes, [[Series/ThirtyRock Jack Donaghy]]'s mom) as Trixie when the show jumped to NBC.

Born from a series of occasional sketches on the [[VarietyShow variety-format]] series ''The Jackie Gleason Show'' (many of which were rather misleadingly touted as "lost episodes" decades later), ''The Honeymooners'' was eventually spun off into its own series, featuring Jackie Gleason as big-mouthed, soft-hearted pseudo-bully Ralph and Art Carney as Norton, with Audrey Meadows as Alice Kramden and Joyce Randolph as Trixie. (Pert Kelton originally played Alice on in the sketches on ''The Jackie Gleason Show'' but was blacklisted during the HUAC "Red Scare" and forced out of the cast. UncleJohnsBathroomReader claims that Kelton's official reason for being fired was that "her boobs were too big").

* DomesticAbuse: Despite what some parodies tell you, totally [[AvertedTrope averted]]. Ralph was a pompous bully-wanna-be, but Alice was the emotionally stronger of the pair by far. In a mix of CloserToEarth and OverAndUnderTheTop, Alice ignored Ralph's impotent threats of violence while Ralph was instantly cowed by dirty looks from Alice.

This does not stop many moments from being quite uncomfortable for modern audiences.
