When it turns out that Louise and Lionel already know about it, George's literally kicks Monk in the butt, prompting the startled response: "WHAT'CHO DOIN', NIG-AAAH?!?"

**When a snooty, rich couple calls Louise a 'boor', George springs from his chair and exclaims, "Nigga what the hell did you say?"

* GeorgeJeffersonJobSecurity: Florence, especially during the early years. At least once, Florence ''did'' get fired ... only for her habit of eavesdropping on George's telephone conversations to save him from a potential scam two con artists had wanted to sell George delivery vans that had been damaged in a flood and it also saves Florence's job. By the early 1980s, the trope no longer applied and Florence's place in the Jeffersons' lives was secure.

* CallingTheOldManOut: Lionel does this to George, when he gets angry about not telling him and Louise about Jenny's pregnancy. They were reluctant to say anything out of not wanting to have to endure a tirade about having a baby with mixed races, which was exactly what he ended up doing when he yelled at them.

* VitriolicBestBuds: With the vitriol on one side. George constantly insults and belittles Tom Willis and Derek Bentley, but when the chips are down, it's obvious he does care about them and will go to great lengths to help them out.

** George did use it in one very memorable circumstance, in reference to his own son, no less! One episode saw one of George's cleaning stores burn down in an accidental fire, and it appears that Lionel's electrical wiring is to blame. When George confronts his son with this, Lionel, grossly offended at the apparent accusation of incompetence, vehemently denies he is at fault and storms out, slamming the door behind him. George, now really angry, yells to Louise: "What's HE so mad about? That nigger burned down my store!"

The show did not get a proper finale, as it was ended early due to ExecutiveMeddling on the part of CBS. Most of the cast found out after the last episode, but Sherman Hemsley didn't know until he read about it in the newspaper.
