** The episode "Alcohol and Old Lace" involves two sisters selling moonshine and justifying their crime because "we're not like those other moonshiners, they sell liquor for drinking purposes; our elixir is for special occasions." Naturally, the town's drinkers are making up excuses to take a nip. One particular scene involves a man pretending to be a Muslim celebrating Mohammed's birthday. It's not a super big deal, but the lightness of it is just a little strange [[TheWarOnTerror given current events]].

* ValuesDissonance: In "A Wife for Andy," Barney immediately disregards Helen Crump as a potential LoveInterest for Andy purely on the grounds that she can't cook very well and that she wants to keep her job after getting married. Lampshaded by Andy himself as the episode quickly moves Barney into JerkAss territory when he tries to sabotage their burgeoning relationship... [[StayInTheKitchen simply on the grounds that she refuses to fulfill the role of a traditional housewife like a good little girl]].
* ValuesResonance: A clip of Andy erasing a recording Opie made of a conversation of a suspect and his lawyer made in secret while defending the right to privacy and attorney-client privilege has been making the rounds on Website/YouTube ever since the revelations of the NSA's spying program.

** There's also a clip from the end of "Opie and the Spoiled Kid" involving the titular spoiled kid raising a fuss after Andy confiscated his bike for riding on the sidewalk. His temper tantrum gets more and more out of control, culminating in the boy's father promising to sell the bike and implying the boy is going to get a spanking. This clip has also been passed around a lot on Website/YouTube and social media among proponents of spanking.
