*** "Oh, boy" is said quite frequently by Filb. It's even on a little poster in "Skid Marks."



* InsistentTerminology: Heffer frequently corrected people who called him a cow ("Steer").

* InsistentTerminology: Heffer frequently corrected people who called him a cow ("Steer"). George Wolfe is also ready to correct anyone who does so.

* PapaWolf: George Wolfe, both literally and figuratively. He's very protective of his adopted son when he's not yelling at him.
* PaperThinDisguise: Ed dressed as Earl in "Frog's Best Friend". Also Heffer and Filburt dressed as Ed in "She's the Toad". The latter disguise actually worked until Hef and Filb gave it away.



* SanitySlippage: Also in that episode, when Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt are trying to substitute a "potato, water, and lightbulb" experiment, there is a section featuring [[Manga/DeathNote potato chips]]. Rocko slowly deals out the chips [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything like poker chips]], and while Heffer [[BigEater eats all of his instantly]], Filburt plans to eat [[{{Ghetto}} one potato chip per day]]. Heffer begs for Rocko's chips, scarfs them down, licks his fingers ''[[spoiler:[[GayMoment and his fingers]]]]'', and starts begging for Filburt's chips. Filburt goes so insane that [[ObfuscatingInsanity he starts talking to his own chips]].

** To give Hef credit, if he's the one who ends up messing something up for Rocko, he'll make up for it without question albeit in unorthodox ways. "Hair Licked" is one of the best episodes that signifies this trope for him. He's responsible for messing up Rocko's hair (albeit unintentionally since he's not the best barber) and his picture at Filburt's (his butt bumped into the fan trying to pick up a cookie) but he was also the one who helped Rock get a better haircut by the Chameleon Brothers and a picture for the newspaper thanks to pushing Rocko's face on the copier. It wasn't the prettiest picture and everyone mocked it but Rocko liked it anyway.

* Corpsing: An in-universe example with the guy from the Department of Immigration in "Kiss Me, I'm Foreign" who is incapable of staying serious even as he threatens to deport Rocko. Every single scene has him either laughing or suppressing the urge to laugh. TheGrimReaper had to tell him to be quiet during the wedding of Rocko and Filb.

* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Dr. Hutchinson. She started off as a dentist in "Rinse and Spit" (until she got tired of always looking down in the mouth), then a surgeon in "Tickled Pinky" and "Nothing to Sneeze At" (until she just couldn't cut it), then a pharmacist in "Kiss Me, I'm Foreign," and then finally a canine nutrition specialist in "The Fatlands." It's likely her not being so frequent is because she's either going to school or working long hours without a break.
** Filburt also seems to change his job as well. He was working as a cashier in a grocery store, selling samples at the grocery store, the DMV, a fast food restaurant, and an amateur photographer. His aren't as called out on because he changes easily obtainable and replaceable part-time jobs and his wife changes ''careers''.

* MadDoctor: "Skid Marks" has one though he's actually rather friendly and likes to examine eyes with a JumpScare because it's much easier. Dr. Bendova in "Flu In-U-Enza," however, might actually not be a real doctor but a mental patient if the nurse's dialogue is anything to hint at...
