** Creator/MarlonBrando takes a big paycheck to play [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney the Dinosaur]]. The face-concealing costume looks as defeated as Brando feels. Previously, he played Mr. French in ''Series/FamilyAffair: The Motion Picture''.

** After ticking off a group of children by making [[BarneyTheDinosaur Humphrey The Hippo]] sad, we learn that Jay once sucker-punched ''Mister Rogers''! What led to this is never explained.

* ReTool: InUniverse, Duke's pet project ''Series/HeeHaw: [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'' was apparently just a modern version of the original ("We've got Junior Samples, Jr.!"); when we see it later on, it's morphed into ''HeeHaw'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' -- [[LiteralMetaphor literally]]. Worf plays a mean hambone.

* YourCheatingHeart: In her first appearance, Alice notes how when her ex-husband, Cyrus, was trying to make it as a country singer, she began to suspect he was cheating on her, mostly due to his songs he wrote like "My Lyin' Heart", "Daddy's Steppin' Out", and then his album "I'm Being Unfaithful to my Wife, Alice Tompkins. You heard me. Alice Tompkins."

* SuckinessIsPainful: Several times with films, but most notable is when Roger Ebert tries to find a replacement for Gene Siskel, and tests one candidate by showing him some of the films he'd have to review. A remake of ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'' starring Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger is sufficient to reduce the candidate to a skeleton (a la [[spoiler: Toht's death in]] ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''), and Creator/SylvesterStallone in a ''Theatre/WaitingForGodot'' rehash (''Yo! Godot, I'm Waitin' Heeya!'') makes the skull fall off.
* SuperStrength: Duke Phillips. [[MakesSenseInContext Makes sense]] because he [[spoiler: uses Jay Sherman as a weight for lifting]].

** In the episode "Marty's First Date", a flashback reveals how they met. [[TheEnglishPatient She was a nurse and Jay was wrapped in bandages.]] She was so lovestruck by him that she was going to give up her job and marry him upon recovery. But when his bandages come off, [[SkywardScream she screamed]] [[BigNo like bloody murder!]]
