* ParachuteInATree: After moving into a new house, Mike discovers BuddyHolly, still alive and guitar in hand, hanging from a parachute in one of the rooms. He has apparently been there since 1959 (23 years at that point). Mike tries to capitalise on the songs Buddy has thought up since then only for the parachute to give way and Holly fall screaming through the floor.

** Averted with the chronically depressed Neil, though in many instances, he comes across as more unpleasantly passive-aggressive than simply depressed, and rarely misses a chance to attempt to guilt-trip his housemates. Then again, it's easy to feel sorry for him considering how he's TheChewToy.

Worth a mention as a show which ''never'' relied on cliché to any extent; any tropes that popped up were usually subverted and [[DoubleSubversion double-subverted]] within minutes, if not seconds. The entire premise of the series, such as it was, was a particularly odd subversion of the DysfunctionalFamily trope. Its [[SpiritualSuccessor spiritual descendant]], ''{{Bottom}}'' -- basically Mayall and Edmondson playing even more unpleasant [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of their ''Young Ones'' characters -- premiered in 1991.
