** One episode had Hank get a thrown-out back. He attends Yoga sessions to relieve this, but he dislikes the self-absorbed, skirt chasing Yoga teacher (though softens slightly once he realizes the Yoga is helping). Immediately after he is fully healed, the guy in charge of disability finds out about this, automatically assumes he was taking advantage of worker's comp, and reports Hank to court. Hank's defense is that if he wasn't in agonizing pain, he would have punched the Yoga instructor out. This instantly convinces the judges.

Immediately after he is fully healed, the guy in charge of disability finds out about this, automatically assumes he was taking advantage of worker's comp, and reports he's healed a bit, Hank inadvertently makes himself look guilty of insurance fraud by resuming the activities he used to do before his injury and is reported to court.

** From the same episode people who work in insurance, the claims investigator and the company doctor are depicted as jerkasses who are firmly convinced Hank's just faking to get a quick buck, the investigator is shown to be especially incompetent, only managing to get incriminating pictures of Hank after he's healed and even confronts about being a faker just as he's trying to go ''back'' to work.

** The episode that depicts Bobby taking women defense class and going a little too overboard with the GroinAttack. He tries it on Peggy (yes, really) but she claims it doesn't work since she ladies don't have groins, which is not true. However, any women will tell you that just because they have vaginas doesn't mean ''it still doesn't hurt when hit there'' as that area is still a sensitive part of the body.
** This was probably done to show Peggy's ignorance.

Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: The four PostScriptSeason episodes (The Honeymooners, Bill Gathers Moss, When Joseph Met Lori, and Made Out with Her in the Janitor's Closet and Just another Manic-Kahn Day) aren't well loved by the fandom. And tend to be ignored in favor of what many consider the true finale, To Sirloin With Love.

** Lucky gets a lot of hate due to being a contributing factor to the show's NegativeContinuity and very little else. The reasons being that his relationship with Luanne (combined with Luanne's {{Flanderization}}) turned her into the exact kind of person she ''didn't'' want to be in the earlier seasons, his lazy lifestyle which Hank, for some reason, mostly tolerates despite being established as treating hard work and effort seriously, and his [[AscendedExtra greater importance]] in the show's last legs despite contributing very little to the plot and not being particularly funny.

* SeasonalRot: Much like ''The Simpsons'', it's not known exactly when the show went downhill (if it went downhill at all), but season nine is usually the point in which the show's quality started to fade, due to weak/bad episodes (starting with the senseless retconning of Peggy Hill's past in "A Rover Runs Through It"[[note]]though considering Peggy's inclination to lie and inflate her self-image, maybe the so-called "retcon" was the writers showing that Peggy was wrong about everything in her life[[/note]] and Luanne falling for Lucky the redneck on "Care-Takin' Care of Business"). However, unlike the SeasonalRot of ''The Simpsons'' and ''Family Guy'', this show was still somewhat enjoyable in its later years, rather than being a waste of time/a shining example of why [[LongRunners long-running TV shows]] aren't always a good thing. However, FOX caught onto this [[ScrewedByTheNetwork and did something about it]].

* SoOkayItsAverage: The later seasons after the SeasonalRot had set in tend to be like this. Not epically bad, but just kind of bland and mediocre.

** Cotton. A loud, abusive, womanizing, self-centered, sexist man who may have an even bigger ego than Peggy. About the only redeeming quality he has is that he genuinely cares for Bobby, though he's still a ''horrible'' role model.

*** Or, did Dale know about it all along and was ambivalent and/or actively screwing with everyone? Take for instance Dale catching John Redcorn sneaking into Nancy's bedroom: Dale says "quit screwing around with my mower [and] get inside and start massaging my wife!" Or the time he "mistook" John Redcorn for a burglar and hit with a lamp, then apologised to John Redcorn.
