* AssPull: In "Swing and A Miss", Sue's roommate Lexie is trying throughout the episode to get Axl's attention, to no avail as a result of [[ItMakesSenseInContext poofed hair, allergic reaction and skin irritation]] and by the end of the episode, after she's back to normal, Sue lets slip to Axl that Lexie has feelings for him. Axl, clearly reciprocating, goes to the party that Lexie is at (that he said he would definitely not go to) and sees her across the room. Cue Devin, Axl's ex as of the beginning of the previous season, [[DiabolusExMachina running into him just before he can reach Lexie]].

** The episode where Sue goes to college it presents Mike as an incredibly OverprotectiveDad by having her master a ridiculous amount of skill before letting her go. However nothing about Sue up to this point would lead the view to believe that she is ready to live on her own. Even her actions in this episode leave that into question.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Even ''if'' Brick started a fire because he used the oven, it was ''still'' being used to store ''quilts''. As of the third season ("The Map"), [[RunningGag the oven is still being used to store quilts]].

* TearJerker: Tons in season 6.
** In episode 5, Axl ends up locked in his college's library on Halloween night. He eventually breaks down and confesses to a bust that he has no idea what he is doing in college or where he is heading in life. Something many young adults in college can relate to.
** In episode 8, Mike is forced to go with Sue on her college tours and encounters another father and daughter pair who are tied at the hip. Mike eventually asks her if he should have been a more affectionate father like the other dad. Sue says no and proceeds to list every reason why he's such a great dad, it's sweet enough to almost bring [[TheStoic Mike]] to tears.
** At the end of the Valentine's Day episode, Darrin asks for Sue's hand in marriage. She originally says yes, but at the end of the next episode Sue realizes that there's still more she wants to do before settling down and breaks off the engagement. Simultaneously ending their relationship.
** The last episode of season 6. Triples as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and CrowningMomentOfAwesome. After having a terrible final week of school (she loses her yearbook which also had her name wrong, finds out she won't win any school accomplishments, and her graduation cap and gown are the wrong size), Sue is outright forced to attend her graduation by being carried out of the house because she is certain nobody will notice her missing nor will they remember her afterwards. She's completely proven wrong as her yearbook is returned to her by classmates surrounding her, completely filled with the signatures of the entire graduating class thanking her for the little moments and wishing her well.

*** BothSidesHaveAPoint have a point in this issue as Mike has called Frankie out on both taking everything so seriously as well as expect everything to be fixed in an instant. The Wind Chimes reveals that a lot of problems that she just thought went away was actually solved by him confronting the people who she gets into fights with.
*** In Not So Silent Night when all the family pictures were accidently deleted from the computer he called her out over the fact that she makes such a big deal over every little thing when they couldn’t find the originals. He ended up finding them the very next day
