** In "The Show Must Go On", as a prank, some kindergarten students were singing the alphabet and pretending to hate school (long story). It mainly went "Q, R, and S. We're in distress." and "W, X, Z. Please set us free!" etc, etc, but one boy went "N, O, and P. I have to pee." Then he went "T, U, and V. I still have to pee." Justified, as he is just a little kid.

* VillainProtagonist: Andy at his worst. Some of his pranks, such as when he convinced Jen she was becoming a dog, ultimately amount to psychological torture, but on Andy's side, he often doesn't know the joke will be ''that'' serious. There's a reason why the first theme song has the lyric "Started out as a prank, but then got way out of hand."
