** And what of Frasier's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUtyuOToM8o all-too-prescient advice to Woody]] before the latter's election to City Council, concluding with "Just say the word 'Change' about a hundred times!" [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Remind you of anyone?]]



** The fact that Sam PHYSICALLY ASSAULTS Diane on numerous occasions can cause younger audiences to be taken aback, even if she gives as good as she gets.
*** Sam's harassment of Rebecca is pretty uncomfortable to watch, too.



** The majority of Norm's fellow patrons calling him a coward for not cheating on Vera.

** Cliff's speech about "[=WWThree=]", in late 2015 after the attacks on Paris and France's bombing of Syria, and the reactions at home.
--> The charms of the French have always been lost on me. When Double-ya Double-ya Three rolls around, they better not come to old Cliff Clavin to pull the fromage out of the fire, no siree. I got plans. When those missiles start flying, I'll be in a fully stocked up, juiced up Winnebago, heading at sixty-five per right to the border of Mexico. Yessir, those cockroaches and Cliff Clavin will do just fine."
** Still on Cliff, the scene with Diane's friends in "Just Three Friends" gets pretty uncomfortable. He's attracted to Diane's friend, played by Markie Post, but is unable to talk to her. They then discuss some imagined flirtation, and Cliff says he hates her, and insults her. It's uncomfortably close to the misogynist rhetoric that led to the 2014 killings at UCLA, and is kind of uncomfortable to watch.

Added DiffLines:

** Cliff is universally regarded in-universe as extremely physically repulsive. Hes really no worse than average-looking, and he is much easier on the eyes than the obese, slovenly Norm.

Added DiffLines:

* DracoInLeatherPants: Diane abandons both Sam and Frasier at the altar, cheats on both men at least once, and generally shows utter disregard for anybody's feelings and emotions other than her own. Despite all of this, she is really only despised by one other character (Carla), while everybody else in the show either likes her (Coach, Woody, Sam) or is indifferent toward her (Norm, Cliff, Paul).

Added DiffLines:

** Because of ProtagonistCenteredMorality and Diane's {{Moe}} tendencies, it's pretty clear that viewers are supposed to view Carla as being in the wrong for the way she treats Diane. But look at the situation from Carla's point of view. Not only did Diane put her best friend through hell and back, but it's also hinted that she is quite incompetent at her job and only works there because Sam is sexually interested in her. While Carla is busting her ass to support 4-7 kids, Diane is making the same amount of money for doing considerably less work. Taking all this into consideration, is it any wonder that Carla can't stand her?

** Could be this or a case of SocietyMarchesOn. In Season 9's "Uncle Sam Wants You," Sam decides he wants a baby. He propositions a woman, who is offended he asks her to be his "breeder," an "incubator" for his child. Not such a big deal later on, with celebrities such as Creator/RickyMartin and Creator/SarahJessicaParker having children via surrogate.

** In the second episode "Sam's Women", Coach advises a man to disown his son for marrying a black man. In the end, the man mistakes it for reverse-psychology, but still...

* YouLookFamiliar: Paul Willson first appears in first-season episode "Someone Single, Someone Blue" as a character named Glen. In second-season episode "Little Sister Don't Cha" he plays a character named Tom. Then, in fourth-season episode "Fools and Their Money" he appears as Paul Krapence, the character he plays for 53 episodes, becoming a semi-regular in the show's later years.
** Interseries example with ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. John Mahoney and Peri Gilpin both guest-star on "Cheers" as different characters.
** Averted with Bernadette Birkett, [[RealLifeRelative George Wendt's real-life wife]], who appears in one episode ("Fairy Tales Can Come True") as Cliff's date, and then four times without ever showing her face as Vera Petersen.

*** Also from this episode, one of the behaviors that seems to confirm the two men are gay is the fact that they order light beer. Back then, light beer was seen as something only women and gay men drank. Nowadays, light beers are most widely consumed by straight men.
