* RecycledScript: An early episode had the roommates trying to hide a recently adopted pet from Mr. Roper. Towards the end of the series' run, a similar plot (with a different animal, Mr. Furley and Terri) was used. John Ritter himself later acknowledged the trope and said that this was when he realized the series was starting to run out of ideas.



** Actors who appeared on this show before gaining more notable work include Loni Anderson, Lauri Hendler, Joanna Kerns, John Larroquette, and Anne Schedeen.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse : Mrs. Roper has a parakeet in the first season, and the gang gives her a puppy that Larry has manipulated them into taking. No mention is made of the pup after that episode, although it's a fair assumption she still has the parakeet.

*** Don Nicholl is still well-known in the screenwriting community today, but not exactly for his writing. After he died in 1980, his widow Gee established the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting in his memory. Now administered by the [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences]], it's far and away the most prestigious annual competition for amateur screenwriters.

* HollywoodDateless : A mild example. It's strange when Janet complains about not having a date for the evening. She dates frequently but doesn't have a steady boyfriend through most of the series.
