* TheyJustDidntCare: The only possible reason why they make bad movies. Lampshaded in "L.A. Jay," where the studio head Jay meets makes a point of shelving quality scripts and lets them film the bad ones. (''Film/RevengeOfTheNerds IV'' was mistakenly with the quality scripts, though, and tossed to a shooting crew when the studio head noticed this.)
** "Eyes on the Prize" sees Jay deliver a passionate monologue about the state of movies today. When he explicitly says that Hollywood will stop making bad movies when people stop going to see them, an film executive watching in his office says "U-uh! The jig is up!" and jumps out the window.

* WhyWouldAnyoneTakeHimBack: Jay asks Alice this when she considers going back to her [[YourCheatingHeart philandering husband, Cyrus]]. Alice then confessed to Jay that whenever she's about to throw him out, he sings to her and she "melts like butter on a bagel." Sure enough, he sings to her when she attempts to throw him out again, and it almost works until Jay counters it by singing about his faults.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: As insane as it seems nowadays, this show was highly controversial when it aired on ABC. On the making-of featurette on the complete series DVD set, Al Jean mentioned one time when a big bag of angry letters from viewers was hauled into the office.

** In the first webisode, Jennifer informs Jay that the internet doesn't have commercials. That isn't the case anymore, with most internet videos preceded by (or interrupted by) an ad.
