** Mike takes up motorcycling to impress April Conquest in "Monkees Get Out More Dirt". Mike was an experienced biker, as he rode a motorcycle in his pre-Monkee days since he was not yet able to afford a car.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: In "Success Story", Davy (who is a born & raised Brit) states that he was raised by his grandfather, who is flying in from England to see his grandson. However, when we first hear the grandfather speak, his British accent is very mild-to-nonexistent, to the point of almost sounding American, and later, when the charade is falling apart, the grandfather starts sounding...Irish?

-->'''Davy''': Oh really? What does that mean?
-->'''Mike''': I just donít have any idea.

-->'''Micky''': You gotta be kidding!
-->'''Dr. Sisters''': Do I look like a kidder?
-->'''Davy''': That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard!
-->'''Dr. Sisters''': Oh, is it? I have here in my hand another letter, from a girl telling how she is in love with four boys. It's signed "Miss Laundromat".
-->'''All four boys''': Laundromat??
-->'''Dr. Sisters''': Yes, Laundromat! And she tells in this letter that she's so close to a nervous collapse, that she's too nervous to even write this letter.
-->'''All four boys''': That's nervous!
-->'''Dr. Sisters''': And don't forget collapse!


Added DiffLines:

** An episode parodying ''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe'' starts with the Crusoe and Man Friday characters watching ''TheMonkees'', and Friday saying, "Who writes this stuff?'' Once the band arrives, he would repeat this frequently while watching their antics.
** A more subtle example occurs in "Monkees a la Mode", which features a character named Rob Roy Fingerhead. Whenever his name is mentioned, Mike and Micky look at each other in disbelief and mouth the words "Rob Roy Fingerhead??" to each other.
** Not exactly this trope, but in "Dance, Monkee, Dance", Micky is frustrated by a turn of events and stomps off the sound stage, past the cameras and crew, into a back room, and demands that the writers give him an idea to resolve the plot. They do, but he rejects it and returns to the set, complaining that the writers are really overpaid.

* BleepDammit: NBC wouldn't let them say "{{Hell}}" in "The Devil and Peter Tork", even though they were talking about the place and not just cursing. Cue a magnificent bit of BitingTheHandHumor where they discuss whether or not they can say "Hell", with the word constantly bleeped.
