* AcceptableTargets:
** When the Devil abandons his job and removes evil from the world, God asks Bob to talk him out of it so people's decisions can continue to have moral weight.
--->'''Bob''': Gee, I don't know that I'm [[{{Understatement}} all that comfortable]] with the idea of ''going to Hell''.\\
'''God''': Oh, for Pete's sake, you've been to Branson, Missouri. It's not that different!
** The televangelist from the premiere episode, who promptly kicked Bob out of the TV station upon hearing that none of his ideas would bring in any money.
* FridgeBrilliance: In "Bob's Father" the Devil says that he made up Purgatory and that it wasn't true. Purgatory is never mentioned at all in Literature/{{the Bible}}, so he's almost certainly not lying.
** On top of this, the Devil's WellDoneSonGuy complex? Christian theology holds that he rebelled because of God's ParentalFavoritism towards humans over angels.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The show did not do well in the United States (mostly due to complaints about the content being blasphemous), but it got better reception outside of the U.S., particularly in the U.K.
* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments:
** The ending of "Bob's Father", where the exchange below is made before [[spoiler: God gives Bob one last conversation with his late-father]].
--->'''God''': Look, I know your father [[AbusiveParents was a jerk to ya]], but you don't know what was in his ''[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold heart]]''.\\
'''Bob''': Don't do this, [[ShutUpKirk don't gimme that crap]], I don't care ''what'' was in his heart - [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk he never shared it with me]].\\
'''God''': [[JerkassHasAPoint You're right]]. And you're right to be mad at him. [[GodIsGood But it's not your job to forgive him]], it's mine... Did you know your grandfather?\\
'''Bob''': What? No. He never talked about him.\\
'''God''': Now ''he'' was a scary guy.\\
'''Bob''': Oh, [[FreudianExcuse so that makes it okay for my dad to treat me bad]]? Feh, liberals.\\
'''God''': No, that's not what I'm saying. Look Bob... okay, picture this long line of fathers and sons stretching from Adam all the way down to Andy. Now, [[TheChainOfHarm they're all passing down this punch]], [[SinsOfOurFathers from one generation to the next, father to son]], and the trick is to pass on a softer punch. [[ParentsAsPeople Your father passed on a softer punch]].
*** Earlier in the episode, Bob steps on a lego and berates Andy for leaving his toys scattered around. Andy quietly says "That's okay, dad. I know you're upset about Grandpa", prompting a JerkassRealization in Bob, who immediately apologizes for losing his temper [[SoProudOfYou and compliments Andy for being so much smarter than he is]].
*** God's "Pep Talk" to the newborns in the same episode showing how nice God can truly be.
*** He mentions a few of the kids' fate, one becoming famous, one becoming rich, and one "who is going to love [[{{Crossdresser}} wearing his wife's clothes]]" all with the same level of kindness and excitement, his tone not changing at all.
** The ending of ''There's Too Much Sex on TV''
* HilariousInHindsight: Alan Cumming voices the Devil. Three years later, he'd be playing [[Film/X2XMenUnited Nightcrawler]], a character who has a Devil-like appearance but is a devout Catholic.
* HoYay:
** The episode where the Devil doesn't feel appreciated by God is played out like an old married couple going through relationship counseling.
%%%** Smeck and the Devil, on occasions.
* TooGoodToLast: Funny without being outrageous, moralizing without being preachy. Sadly, it was beset by MoralGuardian protests for being blasphemous.
* {{The Woobie}}: While he definitely isn't most perfect character on the show, the stuff Bob goes through during the show will make you feel bad for the guy.
