Trivia trope.
* YouLookFamiliar: Steve Lawrence, who played Fran's (mostly) unseen father Morty, had appeared as himself with wife Eydie Gorme earlier in the show's run. ** A couple of the extras who play nameless one-shot minor characters like a doctor reappear later as a security guard or priest. ** Not just extras, several celebrities had multiple appearances, once in character and once as themselves. Like Steve Lawrence, it happened with Coolio, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell as well. ** The girl who played Fran's GenerationXerox cousin Tiffany in a first-season episode played a completely unrelated high school girl named Francine in a fourth-season episode, with both characters being written as "Just like Fran only Brighton's age."

* ThemeTuneCameo: In the first season finale, when Fran is on a plane, she basically recites the lyrics to the show's theme. She also mentions the "She's got style/ she's got flair" part a couple of times throughout the show. It's even Lampshaded in the episode "Where's the Pearls?":

* WaxingLyrical: When someone asks about Fran, she quotes the first two lines of the theme song, verbatim. Fran's status as a PopCulturedBadass would occasionally lead her to use things like that. When Maxwell was planning a very stuffy affair for Maggie's Sweet Sixteen at the Guggenheim, Fran responded with [[ThePattyDukeShow "While Cathy adores a minuet, a Ballets Russes, and crepes suzette. Our Patty likes to rock 'n' roll."]]

* CelebrityParadox: [[TheDanza Fran Fine]] met [[AsHimself Fran Drescher]], and noticed how similar [[TheNanny that show Miss Drescher starred in]] was to her own life. Later, Fran would meet [[ThisIsSpinalTap Bobbi Flekman]].

* TheVerse: The presence of Bobbi Flekman indicates that TheNanny exists in the same world as ''ThisIsSpinalTap''. Also, Fran and Van running into Ray Barone at their high school reunion (TruthInTelevision, as Fran Drescher and Ray Romano really did go to high school together!) officially canon-welded TheNanny and EverybodyLovesRaymond as existing in the same universe. Later on, TheKingOfQueens also joined this shared universe thanks to its semi-frequent crossovers with EverybodyLovesRaymond.

Reverting ban evader's edit.
Some might say it was basically ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' with [[JewsLoveToArgue matzo balls]], but it was ''much'' more than that. ...Okay, [[IResembleThatRemark it wasn't much more than that]], but it ran for a respectable six seasons nevertheless. It was popular among both children and adults in its heyday (most likely due to its truckload of {{Parental Bonus}}es).
