'''Mark''': ...could you be more specific?\\

-->'''Ricky:''' We have the proof to prove it!\\
...\\
'''Marilyn:''' That is not true! In fact, it is a lie!

* GroinAttack: Death gets one.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey - Subverted, one night while shopping for liquor Marilyn Bowman (played by Dave Foley) finds she's left the house without her purse, and offers to make up for it by showing the checkout clerk "these beauties," and she does -- prompting the clerk to beg her to put them back in hiding.

* NonAnswer: Dusty did not complete the autopsy on the mayor, so when he is asked how the mayor died, Dusty gives a generic answer on what happens to a body when it dies.
* QuirkyTown: Shuckton
* RealitySubtext: Scott Thompson was undergoing chemo for stage one non-Hodgkin lymphoma during production. Dusty's baldness was really his own, and he only portrayed a few characters to keep his work load from getting too heavy. [[spoiler: Also, [[BlackComedy two of them die]].]] He's fine now.
** Buttonhole the cat was inspired by Kevin [=McDonald's=] 20-year-old cat that required very, very costly vet bills to keep alive. The cat is also doing fine, [[WhoWantsToLiveForever if you take nature's side.]]
* TheSpock: The executor of Larry's will apologizes for his lack of emotion, saying that in law school they called him [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Mr. Spock]].

* WhamEpisode: The last two episodes.

...\\
[[spoiler:'''Marnie:''']] And then I murdered him.
* WonderChild: Rampop, the [[strike:retarded]] special adopted son of Larry and Marilyn Bowman. He's the only one in the Bowman household who knows which of the 13 remotes works on the TV, he sees butterflies in place of people and people in place of butterflies, and [[DevilInPlainSight he's the only one who can see Death in his true form]].
* YouNoTakeCandle: Nurse Hester speaks with unnecessary verb tenses. Ironically, she is also a case of WomenAreWiser:
-->'''Hester:''' Why is are you not letting nice cat die?
