* ToBeContinuedRightNow: "Cliffhangin' with Mr. Super", a parody of {{Cliffhanger}} episodes, looks like it's about to end as one, with several different plot threads still needing to be resolved... only for the "[[OnTheNext scenes from next week's PJs]]" to end up resolving them all by way of exposition.

** Played with when in the episode where Muriel beats down a criminal (including [[AssShove shoving a hot comb up his ass]]) and has him arrested, but everyone thinks it was Thurgood. He goes along with it because the tenants are actually respecting him for the first time, but then the criminal's brother comes looking for revenge and kidnaps Thurgood. Muriel sees them but doesn't realize the situation, and casually brags about beating down that crook. Thurgood begs the brother not to listen to her and that ''he'' was the one who did it. She outshouts Thurgood...GilliganCut to her tied up along with him.
