* HighDefinition: Inexplicably, the Netflix and Hulu streams are remastered in high definition, complete with [[PanAndScan pan and tilt]]. As a result there's a number of awkwardly cropped shots (such as people with their head just in the bottom of the frame) as the show was filmed well before high definition, let alone widescreen, was common. On the upside, the opening title sequence has never looked so good.

** In "Proud Dick":
--> '''Tommy''': Dick, why don't you just apologize and get your job back?\\
'''Dick''': Apologize? Should the Venus de Milo apologize to the thug who broke its arms off? No! Should the sphinx apologize to the desert winds for eroding its nose? No! Should Creator/JimCarrey apologize to America for ''Film/TheCableGuy''?... Perhaps.

'''Dick''': You're jumping to conclusions.\\
'''Harry''': And Fox is not a network.

** Of all people, Harry is this in "Collect Call for Dick". When Dick first begins to get obsessed with collecting every Fuzzy Buddy in existence, Harry puts it into perspective by saying they already have a bunch of them. Then later, when there's an ultra rare Fuzzy Buddy of which only thirty were made due to a manufacturing error:
--> '''Harry''': It's worth more because it's defective?\\
'''Dick''': It's worth more because it's rare.\\
'''Harry''': But it's rare because it's defective and crappy?\\
'''Dick''': Exactly. What I wouldn't give to have one.\\
'''Harry''': Hey, I got an idea: How about, instead of buying a bunch of screwed-up dolls, we buy some food? Pay the rent?

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Sally, as the mission's no-nonsense, militaristic, security officer frequently discusses needing to kill anyone who may expose their secret, but never actually hurts or threatens anyone on these grounds. Admittedly, that would be very wrong for the show's light tone.
** A season one episode has Sally lure Mary's brother into a field for the express purpose of murdering him after he tells them about an alien abduction he experienced. Dick manages to stop her, and in the process they discover he was simply lying to get attention.
