* HiddenDepths: Amber, insofar as she seems like your stereotypical snarky emo-teen but actually is more of a DeadpanSnarker in the vain of {{WesternAnimation/Daria}} than anything else.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: During a fight, Larry tells Jackie that her parents will inevitably abandon her for the latest cause of the day and that he'll have to pick up the pieces when it's all over. The in-laws prove him right.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Metaphorgotten}}: Larry keeps lapsing into this during "Family Conference":
-->'''Larry''': You know the old saying: "Happy wife, happy life."\\
'''Debbie''': That's right.\\
'''Larry''': "No need to use a knife."\\
'''Debbie''': That's wrong.\\
\\
'''Larry''': I'm going to let Jackie go first this time. Because, as the old saying goes, "When the wife remains happy, the knife can stay in the drawer."\\
'''Debbie''': Where are you finding these sayings?

* ShoutOut: In "I Believe I Can Drive", a random pair of Zabvronians drive by in one of their golf carts. The sound that plays is that of the ships from TheJetsons. In the same episode, Danica [=McKellar=] from ''Series/TheWonderYears'' as an actress that Larry Bird feels could do anything. As it turns out, outside of acting Danica is a writer, mathematician, and scholar among other things.

** Ah, ''{{Grease}}'' ...who would have guessed that a 30 year old movie set 50 years ago would have been so relevant today!

* OnlyBarelyRenewed: For its second season. And cancelled after that. Some fans have tried to get CBS interested in picking up the show with a more compatable lead in like ''TheBigBangTheory''.

Nothing to do with the Australian soap opera ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'', or with Regis Philbin's daytime game show, or with Creator/TommyWiseau's [[Series/TheNeighbors2015 sitcom]] for Creator/{{Hulu}}. Compare to ''ThirdRockFromTheSun''.[[note]]Which actually gets a ShoutOut in this series.[[/note]] Despite an initially rocky start, the show picked up enough positive reviews in the latter half of the first season to earn a second season. [[FridayNightDeathSlot On Fridays]]. A fact which has not gone unnoticed by the show itself, as the FridayNightDeathSlot trope is referenced several times in season two...

** A meta-one. An early season two episode mentions TermsOfEndearment and how Marty doesn't understand why Debbie likes it. Later in the season, they unintentionally re-create a scene from the movie.

** "The One With Interspecies Friends" has a few and also crosses over into ShoutOut's. The title is a reference to Friends which also gets a reference in the opening ("Wait, Courtney Cox did something before Cougar Town?!") as well as a self-deprecating one when Marty suggests watching some network television ("[Watch network tv] on a Friday? Pfft!" - TheNeighbors time slot being Fridays).
