** A clever example occurs in "Shear Torture" when Spence asks Lou Ferrigno to go to a Fantasy convention with him, but ditches him at the last minute so he can take Adam West instead.[[spoiler: On the way to the convention, Adam West tells Spence that he spoke with Lou Ferrigno and found out that he broke his commitment to him. He then forces Spence out of the car, necessitating him to run across four lanes of traffic. Spence misses out on the Fantasy Convention and Adam West also keeps his gas money]].

* PotteryBarnPoor: The Heffernans consist of an [[strike: UPS]] IPS truck driver, a secretary and an old retired man who never worked a job for more than a month at a time. Despite this, aside from their rather spacious home, in a neighborhood decent enough for Lou Ferrigno, they also have ongoing plots revolving around Doug's widescreen plasma TV and home cinema system and the den devoted to it.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The plot of "Clothes Encounter," where Carrie was returning expensive clothing articles after wearing them for a while, was [[PlayedForLaughs played entirely for laughs]] and was seen in-universe as morally grey but ultimately harmless. In real life this is called "wardrobing," and it is legally considered a type of fraud. At the very least this kind of scheme would probably destroy your credit score, and probably get you arrested for shoplifting.

Most viewers point out ''The King of Queens'' for its prominent case of [[BigBeautifulMan Big Guy]] [[UglyGuyHotWife Hot Wife.]] What makes the show unique, though, is that Doug and Carrie share other attributes that show opposites attracting. For example, Doug is a nice and friendly guy and is quite content with his job as an IPS driver, whereas Carrie sometimes fantasizes about the directions her life could have taken and has a somewhat [[BlackAndGrayMorality grayer moral compass]]. Another example is that Doug is a hard worker, but he likes to play hard as well, whereas Carrie is a card-carrying workaholic.

* KavorkaMan: The other Doug Heffernan, who turns out to be deliberately exploiting his women by giving them ''our'' Doug Heffernan's phone number. When Doug tracks him down, he turns out to be a man who would look like the Clark Kent to WoodyAllen's superman.

* TheBadGuyWins: Parodied in "Icky Shuffle" where Doug and Arthur go up against a stuck-up old man and his son-in-law in a shuffle board tournament. Doug and Arthur lose and Arthur chews Doug out even though before that Arthur said that since Doug decided to play with him that means he already won.
* Played straight and for laughs in "Fight Schlub" where members of a rival delivery company Priority Plus [[spoiler: deceive Doug, bind him, and take over their booth at Coopers the local sports bar. Doug, Deacon, Danny, and some others from IPS try to take it back but are defeated by the Priority Plus Employees and must take the booth that is right next to the bathroom]]

* SorryImGay: Arthur tries to get away from a woman who is interested in him by claiming that Deacon is his secret homosexual lover. This backfires when the woman responds with what amounts to "just don't do it while I'm around."

* ThrowTheDogABone- Holly Schumpert's character could be seen as a Butt Monkey. She comes from a difficult household and is often used by her boyfriends and occasionally the Heffernans (see the episodes "Icky Shuffle" and "Awful Bigamy.") However, once in a while she does come out on top:

* CloudcuckooLander: Arthur. But don't forget a Cuckoolander can also be a GeniusDitz. Carrie is [[SarcasmMode unaccountably annoyed]] that Arthur blew what would have been her college fund on acquiring the rights to the life story of singer Lou Rawls. But spool on two years past the end of the show: in 2009, Rawls was subject to a biography and a film version of same. Whoever owned the rights could have walked off with a modest seven figure fee...
