* MrsRobinson - possibly. One episode was centred around Bill reading David's diary and becoming convinced he was in a relationship with an older woman ... then learning the woman was his drama teacher and he was appearing in a production of ''TheGraduate'' ... and ''then'' at the very end, he thanks the teacher for "everything. "No, ''[[TeacherStudentRomance everything]]''".

* StonersAreFunny: In one episode Bill's mother and Rhona's very uptight Auntie Pearl smoke a tin of tobacco that they found behind a lavatory cistern, not realising that it was actually cannabis. Cue several scenes of them having very giggly conversations.

''Series/TwoPointFourChildren'' is a prime example of MagicRealism. It was written by Andrew Marshall, whose former writing partner David Renwick was responsible for the more successful ''Series/OneFootInTheGrave'' (which was more like tragic surrealism). Both jointly created classic radio comedy ''Radio/TheBurkissWay''. ''2point4 Children'' has strong echoes of Burkiss, but is a little less surrealistic.

* StandardizedSitcomHousing: the setting is what could be called ''The Creator/{{BBC}} Semi-Dee'' - the universal semi-detached house found universally all over Britain, and since the 1950's the standard set for BBC family sitcoms of the ''Series/TerryAndJune'' genre. Although ''2.4 Children'' [[GenreSavvy knowingly sends up]] the twee and dated assumptions of the London-based sitcom about a middle-class family, living humdrum comfortable lives in nice parts of suburbia.
