* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the episode "What's Comb Over You", Ian's mom (who gets tripped up by Ian) falls flat on her face into a magazine titled "Organ Grinder". Not only that, but in the back is a picture of piano keys as well as a few kiss marks and "1-900 Hot Keys". To top it all off she reads an article in the magazine called "How to change your G-String" (while also holding the magazine side ways in mid-air), then giving it a questionable look, gasping, and backing away nervously whilst looking at the screen. Think about this one carefully.

* HowUnscientific: Usually averted, with fantasy sequences turning out to be dreams or daydreams, but played straight in the episode where Ian can predict the future with his nose.
** Which ''itself'' contains a [[DreamSequence dream sequence]] [[WholePlotReference based on]] "The Nose" by NikolaiGogol, of all things: Ian's magic nose pops off his face and starts living a better life without him. Ian wakes to find he still has his nose... but it can [[HowUnscientific still predict the future.]] Naturally, he fears his dream itself is a prediction and decides IJustWantToBeNormal.
