* AManIsNotAVirgin: Played with. Gary begins the series a virgin, & Henry's sexual resumé consists solely of his first time, though a fraction of Vince's or Peter's experience dwarfs them both combined.

* AccidentalMisnaming: In the first episode, Val kept calling Gary 'Glen' by mistake.



* BitchInSheepsClothing:
** Dana, Jeff's ex-girlfriend, who appears to be nice and friendly. But then it's revealed that she has no problem making a pass at Jeff when she knows he has a girlfriend - and is said to have a boyfriend herself.
** Jill gets revealed as this after a while. While in France, she grows apart from Gary, which would be understandable...if she didn't pretend she'd gone back to France to avoid him.



* BrickJoke: Holly loses five lobsters in the episode where she works at Jeff's restaurant, but he only caught four. At the end of the episode, they find the fifth in the kitchen.
* BrotherChuck:
** Jeff vanishes after Season 1, and gets only a couple of mentions afterwards.
** Peter vanishes too in Season 3, after TheBusCameBack briefly at the end of Season 2.



* TheCastShowoff: A musician [[CastTheExpert was cast as Ben specifically for this]]. Allison Munn (Tina) also gets an episode to show off her voice.

* TheCastShowoff: CantGetAwayWithNuthin:
** To avoid going to Aunt Wanda's for Thanksgiving, Val lies to say that Holly is sick. Of course Aunt Wanda turns up with medicine to check on Holly.
** Holly and Gary sneak off to a party on Long Island. Of course they get a flat tyre and stranded on the road.
* TheCastShowoff:
**

** Although there is a video shown of a very young Holly doing stand-up comedy, which actually is a video Amanda Bynes performing.



* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Tina thinks she's pregnant and gets excited when the test turns pink. Gary thinks it means she's having a girl.



* DawsonCasting: Extremely averted with Holly (who's in-universe birthdays were near Bynes'). Played straight with Henry, Vince and Gary, all of whom were played by actors who were 24/25 at the time of their introductions, and Tina, whose actress was 28 at the time of her introduction.



* DoomedNewClothes: When Holly wears her red cashmere sweater to work at the restaurant, it eventually gets caught in the rotisserie and burns up.



* FriendsRentControl: Justified & semi-averted. At the start of the series, Val's been in the same apartment for several years, with a high-paying, upper-executive job & a roommate to split rent with and their father sends her money for Holly's expenses.
