* FifteenMinutesOfFame: This happens to Sally after she punches out MarkHamill in a restaurant. When Mary tells a jealous Dick that this is Sally's "fifteen minutes of fame," he interprets it literally and is maddened by her "fifteen minutes" lasting considerably longer than that. It ends after a few days, however, causing Sally to start acting like a WhiteDwarfStarlet.

** In "Tricky Dick", Dick tells a car repair guy, who only speaks Spanish, that Mary's car needs to be repaired. Then he adds that she wants it re-painted and to have huge speakers put in. Mary doesn't know about this. Near the end of the episode, Dick and Mary call a truce on their pranks, and we hear a car engine and music that sounds like it's coming out of huge speakers. Judith then says "Mary, it appears your Volvo is back from the repair shop."

** "InDickscretion" sees this happen to Dick and Sally. They're so turned on by talking about Mary and Don, respectively, that they start eyeing each other longingly. Just before their lips make contact, they realize what they're doing and [[ScreamingAtSquick panic]], and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere run]].

* AmazonianBeauty: Sally. And Nina.Sally, Nina, and Janice. Deconstructed in Janice's case; she hates how much people try to test her mettle after seeing how big and strong she is.

** In a later episode, the Solomons believed that Sally's new Italian boyfriend, Sammy "The Butcher" Marchetti, was in the mob. Naturally, Sally is thrilled and spends the whole episode {{LARP}}ing as a stereotypical MafiaPrincess. It turns out he's a literal butcher working at the local Italian restaurant.

* OutOfOrder: Nearly all the episodes in season five were aired in a seemingly random order compared to the order they were written in. This normally wouldn't be noticeable, except in "Dick Puts the ID In Cupid", he references being naked under a table at a function Mary organised. Had they aired i the order they were written in, this would make sense. However, in the order they are aired, he's referencing something that hasn't happened yet, or for first time viewers makes it appear to be a NoodleIncident.
