* GameShowAppearance: Doug once creamed he was on ''Series/WheelOfFortune'', and another time Arthur ended up [[{{Blackmail}} blackmailing]] Creator/DickClark over not getting his [[ConsolationPrize Rice-A-Roni]] when he appeared on ''[[Series/{{Pyramid}} The $10,000 Pyramid]]'' [[note]]this was actually surviving footage of Jerry Stiller's appearance on the show in 1976; most of the episodes from that period were wiped per ABC's policy[[/note]]. (Of course, Dick Clark wouldn't have controlled that part; it was under Creator/BobStewart's control then; like this show and ''Wheel'', it's currently a Creator/SonyPicturesTelevision property.)

* [[Main/ShooOutTheNewGuy The Poochie]]: Sara. At the beginning of the series, Carrie was meant to be the serious character of the two, while Sara was meant to be nothing more than a mooching bimbo. They quickly ran out of things to go for a character like Sara, so eventually they [[Main/RetroactiveContinuity wrote her entire existance out of the show]].



* ShooOutTheNewGuy: Richie was a part of the quartet of friends as well as a major character for the first three seasons. Suddenly, though, the character was just dropped.

* CouldHaveAviodedThisPlot: "Eddie Money." Why the hell didn't Doug just put the $100 back in the family kitty and put the other $2,400 in a savings account or even his IPS locker?

* YouGetWhatYouPayFor: Doug decides to give Carrie eye surgery for her birthday so that she no longer needs glasses. However, she ends up going through a much longer than usual adjusting period almost completely blind. Turns out that Doug decided to not go to the surgeon Carrie's boss recommended but another one due to the fact that the latter had coupons. Carrie is understandably upset and forces Doug to take her to the other one.

* {{Crossover}}: From time to time, the Heffernans have interacted with the cast of ''EverybodyLovesRaymond''

** However, it should be noted that unlike ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' with [[ButtMonkey Raymond]] and [[{{jerkass}} Debra]], Doug was always portrayed as equally strongwilled and just as often meant to be "right" in the plot as Carrie.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The first house Doug and Carrie bought together turned out to be more impractical than awesome as Doug initially thought. The house itself was uncomfortably close to a school, the easy chair that looked like a hand wasn't as comfortable as it looked, the sunken living room was a booby trap, and the dumbwaiter was, well, [[StealthPun dumb]].
--> '''Doug''': ''(examining the mess left by the faulty dumbwaiter)'' We're going to need a tiny cleaning lady.
