* FakeNationality / FakeBrit: Daniel Davis as Niles, who is from Arkansas. He is good at it though, to the point where Charles Shaughnessy (Maxwell Sheffield), an actual Brit, was told by some critics that he should take lessons from Davis in order to get his "[[RealityIsUnrealistic fake]]" accent right.

* YouLookFamiliar: Steve Lawrence, who played Fran's (mostly) unseen father Morty, had appeared as himself with wife Eydie Gorme earlier in the show's run. ** A couple of the extras who play nameless one-shot minor characters like a doctor reappear later as a security guard or priest. ** Not just extras, several celebrities had multiple appearances, once in character and once as themselves. Like Steve Lawrence, it happened with Coolio, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell as well. ** The girl who played Fran's GenerationXerox cousin Tiffany in a first-season episode played a completely unrelated high school girl named Francine in a fourth-season episode, with both characters being written as "Just like Fran only Brighton's age."

** Happened with Fran Drescher herself. In one episode, she plays Bobbi Flekman, a character she'd already played on ThisIsSpinalTap. There are also several references to SaturdayNightFever, in which Fran Drescher played a minor role.

* CulturalTranslation: The Italian dub changed Fran to be an Italian woman living in Manhattan ("Fran" being short for Francesa instead of Francine). To make her look more like a FishOutOfWater, Sylvia was changed to be Fran's Aunt Assunta, with Fran's "real parents" still living in Italy unseen. Grandma Yetta kept her name but was changed to be Assunta's Polish sister-in-law. Even Fran's sister, Nadine, was changed to be Cousin Nadia.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Aside from the fashion sense (Maggie's babydoll dresses, especially), the earlier seasons made quite a few pop culture references and current events references to things like the O.J. Simpson trial and the Menendez Brothers that date the show to the Nineties.
