* ClipShow: The season 6 episode "Lucy and Viv Reminisce" has Vivian come out to California to nurse an injured Lucy while clips from past episodes are shown.
* HereWeGoAgain: This happens in "Lucy and the Ring-a-Ding Ring" when Mary-Jane puts the ring meant for Mr. Mooney's wife, Erma, on ''her'' finger... but, just like Lucy did earlier in the episode, she winds up getting it stuck on her finger, [[OhCrap much to Mr. Mooney's dismay.]]
* LockedInARoom: Lucy and Mr. Mooney are locked in a bank vault together in the two-part episode Mr. Mooney debuts in. The [[HereWeGoAgain next time it happens, which is in the second part]], she manages to ''accidentally trap Mr. Mooney in by himself,'' With little food or water to speak of.

* {{Sitcom}}
* SpecialGuest: Later seasons of this series had several per season, usually with the title "Lucy and (Name of celebrity)".
* StealingFromTheTill: In ''Lucy and the Bank Scandal'', she wrongfully believes that Mr. Mooney would be as low as to embezzle money from his own bank, with nothing but circumstantial evidence and a shaky foundation to accuse him with at best. To prove that he is guilty of it, Lucy and Vivian try to find the money they ''think'' is buried in his backyard by digging up Mr. Mooney's backyard. Later, this accusation is subverted when it was in fact the oil tank for his oil-powered heater that they find instead and get everyone covered in oil when Lucy strikes the tank.
* StraightMan: Vivian played this role at the start of the series. Mr. Mooney filled the part for the rest of it.
* ZanyScheme: A staple of every Lucy series.
