* 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!!!"]].

*** When Dick (loudly) proclaimed his unwillingness to convict based on the fact he knew he defendant the entire case was thrown out as a mistrial.

Added DiffLines:

** When Sally gets a tomato plant and becomes obsessed with him, she names him Jeremy, claiming that she originally wanted to call it "Lycopersicon Esculentum," but that sounded too snotty. That sounds like alien TechnoBabble, but is actually the scientific name for tomatoes.

** Mary's lackluster but enthusiastic vocal talents are shown off at least as much as the Solomons', despite being poor enough both in-universe and on-screen for a season 3 episode.

* TheCastShowoff: Numerous times the entire main cast gets to show off musical talents. The best is in "A Nightmare on Dick Street," wherein Harry's dream is an elaborate Broadway-style song and dance number that was shot almost entirely in one take.
** August sings a song in the episode with Tommy forming a band.

** August sings a song in the episode with Tommy forming a band. Shay Astar, who played August, is now a professional singer-songwriter (though she sang only as a hobby at the time). [[JustForPun Astar became a star]]!
