*** 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.

** In Season Two's "How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Call You Back", [[ItMakesSenseInContext Diane is lounging about in her apartment at night, drunk]], with the lights off and a host of lit candles throughout the living room. When Sam stops by, he remarks that the ambiance invokes a haunted house (when Diane turns on the lights, Sam chuckles, "No bats!"). Years later, ShelleyLong would guest-star in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' as a wicked witch.
** Woody Harrelson plays a character who winds up in the audience of ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' both in the episode "Who Is Cliff Clavin?" and a few years later, in the film ''Film/WhiteMenCantJump''.

** In a latter episode Cliff starts out directing a video for Woody's and Kelly's families, but proves such a PrimaDonnaDirector that he gets replaced by Frasier, who turns out to be just as bad. This has an extra layer of hilarity when you consider that John Ratzenberger was a semi-regular director on this series, and Kelsey Grammer later became one of the most frequent directors on ''Frasier''. Plus, Frasier is again a horrible director in his own show's "Ham Radio," often considered one of its best episodes.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Rebecca often tread the line of almost falling into ReplacementScrappy, especially for fans of Diane. (Despite the fact that the writers strove to make her different from Diane from the beginning, the character still suffered a LOT of unfavorable compare/contrasts with her predecessor from fans of the old days, a la "Diane would've never done ''that''!" Especially when [[EasilyForgiven letting Robin walk all over her]] while seeming oblivious to his manipulations of the rest of the gang....) Once the writers switched her from half-IceQueen/half-hopeless-piner-for-rich-guys to the cutely neurotic mess she was for the rest of the run, fan animosity cooled.
** Frasier was disliked during his early appearances (Kelsey Grammer even received hate mail). Obviously, things got better.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Many fans often express their dissatisfaction with much of the first half of Season 5, regarding how it handles the Sam/Diane relationship. Though Diane as ThePollyanna (driving Sam nuts in the process) is admittedly cute, these fans argue it gets old pretty fast. The dramatic implications of the dynamic (including the implication that Diane's being a Type-A StepfordSmiler, clinging on to her hope that Sam will propose again because she doesn't think she'll be able to deal with the alternative) are explored quite wonderfully in the Season's second episode, "The Cape Cad"--and it's picked up again a while later in the excellent "Knights Of The Scimitar". Everything in ''between'' may have its moments...still, when taken as a ''whole'', it seems very much like mere "filler"--and could easily be interpreted as the writers stalling for time before settling on whether or not they should bite the bullet and put the show's SuperCouple on the path to marriage.

* ValuesDissonance: Probably the record for shortest time interval between the example and the values shift: Rebecca's dilemma with her spring-chicken boss's unwelcome advances was only ''three years'' before the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings made sexual harassment a major workplace concern all over the country.

* TheWoobie: Diane. It's always hard to watch our girl's heart break, [[BreakTheCutie or otherwise see her crushed emotionally]]. The entire main storyline of Season One's "Let Me Count The Ways" is probably the best example of this.

* BaseBreaker: Diane. To her fans, she's the biggest sweetheart, TheCutie, and something of TheWoobie. To her haters... well, let's say TheScrappy, and leave it at that.
