* NamesTheSame: Many people think Orel is named after American Methodist-Pentecostal televangelist Oral Roberts. WordOfGod says it's not, even had to change the spelling for Orel.

* HeReallyCanAct: Scott Adsit, William Salyers, and Britta Phillips all ''really'' show off their acting skills once things get serious in season 3. Special mention to Clay and Nurse Bendy's breakdowns in "Sacrifice" and "Alone".

*** And while the show pokes fun at some of the hypocrisy of said Fundamentalist, it actually goes out of it's way to show the positive side of faith as well.

* IronWoobie: Considering everything he's gone through, the fact that the ending shows Orel to be a loving father and husband proves him to be one of these.
* JerkassWoobie: Adult Clay. There ''is'' a distinction.



* StoicWoobie: Ms. Sculptham, when you find out about [[spoiler:[[RapeAsBackstory her past]]]].

Added DiffLines:

** "Alone" manages to do this to most of the male cast. Seeing the psychological damage that the mentally handicapped Nurse Bendy has suffered as a result of all the sexual abuse she's endured makes the male characters, who typically see her merely as an object of lust, look like anything ranging from [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] to [[CompleteMonster Complete Monsters]].

Added DiffLines:

** The same goes for "Turn The Other Cheek". While it's not really a good idea to beat other people up because they might be violent, the phrase doesn't mean just let people beat you up. This, along with Clay being beaten up by Orel, may be one of the reasons Orel didn't have to "learn a lesson" at the end of the episode.

** However, the dog was ''very'' clearly meant to be a reference to Christ's second-coming, but since Jesus in the form of a non-human would undoubtedly be considered blasphemous by [[TheFundamentalist the citizens of Moralton]]...

** The way Moral lays in his hospital bed in ''Grounded'' is very reminiscent of Jesus' pose in The Last Supper.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: It's a bit weird watching the show after hearing Scott Adsit as the "non-threatening, huggable" Baymax in ''Disney/BigHero6''.

* TheWoobie: Orel, Florence, Nurse Bendy, young Clay...really, damn near everyone in Moralton falls into this category at one point or another.

** JerkassWoobie: Adult Clay. There ''is'' a distinction. Bloberta as well; there's no denying the woman is one shit pile of a person, what with neglecting her own children and driven her husband to drink, but no sane human being would want her life.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Most of the ActivistFundamentalistAntics fall into this, with an EstablishingCharacterMoment from Ms. [[MeaningfulName Censordoll]] in the first episode being a protest of ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' and her burning ''the Bible''.
-->'''Ms. Censordoll''': Only the Jewish parts.
