** A rare forgivable example in the cases of Axl and Sue since both actors actually do look much younger than their actual ages. Even at the age of 23, the actor who plays Axl still looks like a teenager. Though the same can't be said for the actors who play Darren and Sean who both look like they're in their late 20s. It was even lampshaded in the episode where Sue wanted to date Darren with Mike objecting because "he's 18 and he looks 30!"
*** Sue does strain credulity a bit early in the third season when she tells Frankie she just had her first period, given that Eden Sher is, uh, quite a ''developed'' young lady.

*** ** Eden Sher herself remarked at how big the gap was for Sue early on, playing a 13 year-old at 17, and Sue does strain credulity a bit early in the third season when she tells Frankie she just had her first period, given that Eden Sher is, uh, quite a ''developed'' young lady.lady. However, this became downplayed after Sue went to college and the gap became less significant.

Added DiffLines:

** Several times in a season 9 episode, Frankie tries unsuccessfully to get ''a good cry'' to feel better. At her last attempt she even tries to listen to the music from Ice Castles. This is an exact reference to a plot at an episode where Ray tried to figure out why would Debra be crying home alone, right to the Ice Castles soundtrack, although it was played for a slightly more dramatic effect in EverybodyLovesRaymond.

* RecycledScript: Season 7's "Survey Says..." has Brick taking an office store's online shopping survey too seriously...exactly like in Season 5's "The Wind Chimes" when he thinks his suggestion to a pretzel company's 1-800 number will make or break them. In both episodes he incorrectly assumed that participation automatically made him an official employee.
