** The closest they got to acknowledging the disappearances of James, Nikki, Janelle, and Stacy was in Season 5's "Smile", where the Mayor (while grieving over the death of his favorite dentist) expresses lament over the fact that some people who were important to him have left within the past few months. Granted, he doesn't mention any names, but let's just say he's talking about Stacy, Nikki, Janelle, James, and of course Mike.* FunnyAneurysmMoment: "Age Against the Machine" features Charlie ultimately deciding that he's too old to party every night. If only Creator/CharlieSheen had come to that same conclusion...

to:

* EpilepticTrees: James had already gotten fired last season and was on Mike's payroll as the "Deputy Deputy Mayor", so when Mike left..?
** James was re-hired as the Mayor's speech writer prior to Mike's departure, presumably due to budget cuts which meant they were understaffed.

* HilariousInHindsight: In one episode Mike and his crew accidently hires an interpretor for deaf people, who fakes his sign language, angering the deaf community. This later happened in RealLife [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mandela-service-interpreter-for-deaf-accused-of-faking-it/ at Nelson Mandela's funeral in 2013]].

** It's even more of a tearjerker if you consider that Michael J. Fox only left because of [[GameBreakingInjury Parkinson's]]. Otherwise the show might have continued.

* HarsherInHindsight: Carla Gugino's final episode has Mike being worried that his and Ashley's differing political views and competitiveness could result in the destruction of their relationship. Ashley assures him everything's fine, and their relationship can withstand anything. Seems heartwarming, at first, but ''the very next episode'', had Mike just been dumped by Ashley, and going through a HeroicBSOD. Damn....

* CriticalResearchFailure: In an episode where Michael tries to find out if his staff has been lying on their resumes, he confronts Paul with his claim that he has been involved in a Jordanian election, suggesting that it can't be right, since Jordan is a monarchy. While the king of Jordan does retain much personal power, the country has multi-party politics and the Jordanian House of Representatives is democratically elected.
