* OutOfOrder: Nearly all the episodes in season five were aired in a seemingly random order compared to the order they were written in. This normally wouldn't be noticeable, except in "Dick Puts the ID In Cupid", he references being naked under a table at a function Mary organised. Had they aired in the order they were written in, this would make sense. However, in the order they are aired, he's referencing something that hasn't happened yet, or for first time viewers makes it appear to be a NoodleIncident.

** Much of season one was also broadcast out of order. The biggest problem caused by this is that "Dick Is from Mars, Sally Is from Venus", in which Tommy starts attending high school for the first time, was broadcast after two episodes in which Tommy was already in school.

* HilariousInHindsight: The dream episode. Joseph-Gordon Levitt trapped in a nightmare world and desperately trying to escape? [[Film/{{Inception}} Sure nothing like that will ever be seen again]].

* HarsherInHindsight: When Sally meets Janice who is played by wrestling champ Chyna, she says "Prepare to Die!" which can come off as this as Chyna has passed away in 2016.

* TakeThatScrappy: August gets her comeuppance. After they break up Tommy convinces everyone that he dumped her which constantly gets thrown in her face.* TearJerker: ''3rd Rock'' is a relentlessly goofy show, which sometimes makes the rare moments of drama that much more striking.

* GeniusBonus: During one episode, Dick comments that Easter Island was a practical joke that got out of hand. Many listeners will simply associate this joke with the massive stone heads and laugh, but a person who has read about the ecological and societal collapse resulting from overuse of natural resources due to moai construction will understand the "got out of hand" differently.

* TheScrappy: Tommy's first girlfriend, August. Manipulative, selfish, snooty, StrawFeminist and all-around bitch who broke up with Tommy due to his "immaturity", ''after'' being caught cheating on him and lying about it to his face.
** She gets her comeuppance though. After they break up Tommy convinces everyone that he dumped her which constantly gets thrown in her face.

** Every time Tommy appears on screen, it's hard to restrain yourself from screaming (in a high-pitched voice) [[GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra "COOOBRAAA!!!"]].
