Unfortunate Implications need citations
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop / UnfortunateImplications: In an episode where an aspergers child has to learn to apologize with the help of a teacher regarding his getting into a fight, the teacher showed him a tape of someone apologizing for something he did so he'd have a way to emulate how to apologize. The video she showed as the model was when Bill Clinton had a public broadcasted apology shortly before the Lewinsky Sex Scandals and Clinton impeachment hearings came about, which alongside the issue of whether Clinton was actually sincere with his apology, carried the implication that the teacher was essentially teaching the kid to fake remorse and deliver a unsincere apology.

** The whole storyline about Max's first love in late season 6, where Max is praised by his mother Kristina for 'being brave', all the while harassing Dylan, the girl he loves, and publicly shaming - and demanding the expulsion of - the boy she's actually interested in.

Ensemble Dark Horse is not your personal favorite characters.
* AwardSnub: NBC made a huge push to get Monica Potter an Emmy nomination for her cancer storyline in Season 4. Sadly, she was egregiously overlooked by the Academy, though she won a Critics Choice Award and was nominated for a TCA award and a Golden Globe.

* TastesLikeDiabetes: The ending. It starts off with the younger kids doing a rather cheesy rendition of ''Snow White'' for a school play, and goes to a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming where [[spoiler:Gil's wife Karen gives birth]], among other things.

Looks messy...
* HeReallyCanAct: 4 of the male characters in this movie. First, we have Creator/SteveMartin as Gil. Gil is a loving father, but he believes that he isn't good enough, which takes Martin's trademark irritation and misanthropy into some very dark places. There's also Creator/RickMoranis and his portrayal of Gil's brother-in-law Nathan. All Nathan wants is to raise a prodigy, but his SuperOCD is not only PlayedForLaughs in this case, but also PlayedForDrama when he attempts to keep things orderly with Susan, his wife and Gil's sister. And we can't go without mentioning Creator/KeanuReeves and Tom Hulce as Tod and Larry respectively. Yes, Tod is basically [[Film/BillAndTed Ted]] with one letter in his name changed, but does so with grace and pathos, and really delivers one of the defining speeches of the movie and shows Tod's HiddenDepths subtly but clearly. And while Tom Hulce already had an Oscar nomination to his name, his performance as the perpetual but sadly aware family screw up Larry shows real depth.

Can't we say that these 4 male characters did great? I don't really know about Tom, but I like Steve and Keanu, and I love Rick
* HeReallyCanAct: Keanu. Yes he plays Tod, yet another spaced-out slacker, but does so with grace and pathos. ** He really delivers one of the defining speeches of the movie and shows Tod's HiddenDepths subtly but clearly. ** Just Keanu? ** We also have to give some credit to Tom Hulce. While he already had an Oscar nomination to his name, his performance as the perpetual but sadly aware family screw up Larry shows real depth. Which is to say nothing about Steve Martin as Gil, taking his trademark irritation and misanthropy into some very dark places.
