** In "Stew in a Stew", Antonio reads ''Scarlett'' and raves about it, but finds himself wanting to know more about what happened to Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler during the Civil War. When Helen and Roy inform him of the existence of ''GoneWithTheWind'', he responds incredulously "Get out!" As if that weren't enough, he then mentions liking ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''... but the title ''StarWars'' does not ring even the tiniest of bells for him.

* ThreeTwoOne: Happens in "Around the World in 80 Years" when Helen decides to wear a sexy dress to a cello audition, a decision Joe disagrees with.
-->'''Helen''': I know what you're thinking. You're thinking it's a sleazy, demeaning trick and that I've lowered myself to Brian's level. There, I've said it, so you don't have to.
-->'''Joe''': It's none of my business. I'm not going to say a word. ''(Joe turns and starts to walk away. Helen counts down three, two, one on her fingers and points to Joe. Joe immediately stops in his tracks and turns around.)'' It just seems to me that if you win this audition, you'll never know whether it was because of your cello playing or some sexy dress.

Roy and AntonioAntonio. The former would constantly abuse the latter, yet the two seemed to constantly be hanging out with one another.
** Brian and Casey had this dynamic as well. Early on, the two outright hated one another but were forced together due to circumstances. Eventually, their relationship reached the point where while they constantly bickered and got on each other's nerves, there was nonetheless a genuine bond between them.

* AccidentalMisnaming: One of the many things about Carlton that annoyed Antonio was the fact that he kept addressing him as Angelo, despite Antonio's constant efforts to correct him.

** Roy Biggins tended to see his name get butchered a lot. In "Blackout Buggins", a TV newscaster refers to him as "Roy Buggins", and then later in the episode, the announcer at Fenway Park calls him "Ray Biggins". In "Let's Talk About Sex", a newspaper story identifies Roy as "Boyd Wiggins".

Other characters included Helen Chappel (Crystal Bernard), the proprietor of a nearby lunch counter, a lifelong friend of both Hackett brothers and eventually, Joe's wife; Lowell Mather (Creator/ThomasHadenChurch), the lovably dumb airport mechanic; Fay Cochran (Rebecca Schull), a daffy retired flight attendant working as Sandpiper Air's ticket clerk; and Roy Biggins (David Schramm), the greedy owner of rival carrier Aeromass. Later additions to the cast included sad-sack cab driver Antonio (after [[Series/{{Monk}} Tony Shalhoub]] scored in a small role as a waiter), who joined the cast in the third season and remained for the rest of the show's run; Alex Lambert (Farrah Forke), an ex-Army helicopter pilot who dated Brian for a while; Helen's neurotic sister Casey (Amy Yasbeck), who joined for the final three seasons after Forke left; and Budd Bronski (Brian Haley), brought in as a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute for Lowell after Thomas Haden Church left at the end of the sixth season for a lead role on ''Series/NedAndStacey''.

** "Marriage, Italian Style," when Antonio is threatened with deportation back to Italy. Since that just happened to be the episode where Tony Shalhoub was [[PromotionToOpeningTitles officially elevated to the main cast]], you could probably guess that wasn't going to happen.

** In one episode, an old woman keeps calling Roy by a foreign word that sounds insulting -- she finally defines it by pointing at the hindquarters of a horse picture (i.e. she's calling him a horse's ass). Roy finally gets it -- and is thrilled that she thinks he's a stallion.
