* AnachronismStew: The real Louie was born in 1953, and in the show he is [[NotAllowedToGrowUp eight years old]], which would put us in 1961. However, in a season 2 episode, Louie and Andy meet President Eisenhower (whose term ended in January 1961). Furthermore, it is never clear exactly how old Andy was when he was in World War II. In most flashbacks he appears much younger, and in one episode Ora and Andy claim that they met shortly after Andy returned from Europe. But if that's the case, then they've known each other only about 15 years--even though some of their children seem to be adults.

* BrokenPedestal: In one episode, Louie starts idolizing a stand up comic, but at one point realizes that he was a bit of a JerkAss seeing as his comedy was a variety of InsultComic. He ditches his first chance at being on stage and instead goes home.
** Where he starts telling stories to his parents and siblings [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and how crazy they are as a whole, and how he loves them, effectively finding his voice as a comedian]].

* CatchPhrase: Several, but the most used are Andy's "For crying out loud!" and "I heard that." in response to anyone's (mostly Louie's) DeadpanSnarker comments about him.
** And another one very often is Louie's mom berating Andy with ... well.. "'''''Andy'''''!"

* PhonyVeteran: Andy defines this trope. Andy remembers things... differently from what really happened. Might be that it is a defense mechanism of trying to cope with what really happened, making Andy a ShellShockedVeteran.
** For all the jokes about how he's a fake, one episode revolved around Louie finding a picture of his dad's old squad... without his dad. [[BrokenPedestal The logical ensues]]. Until he meets his dad's old squaddies, and they glorify him and say he was ''holding the camera''.

* InsultComic: Louie once become aquainted with an immensely popular stand-up comedian (who used to be friends with Louie's mother) whose whole routine revolved around selecting people in the audience to insult for humor. When Louie himself became a target of mockery for his weight, he decided that he didn't want to become known as a comedian who made fun of other people's misery. The end of the episode shows the comedian LonelyAtTheTop.

* RidiculouslyLongPhoneHold: In one episode, Ora (the mother of the main character) calls the camp where Louie is on a vacation, since she wants to talk to him. Due to the fact that Louie is currently on a trip through the forest, and a troubled one at that, the woman who receives the call tells Ora that it might take some time before he can come to the phone. Ora says that she will wait anyway, possibly spending a few hours just sitting at the phone silently. The episode ends with Louie's dad receiving an absurdly high phone bill.
