* FridgeHorror: Ned's touch, as long as it's skin to skin, brings back the dead. Which begs the question of whether or not Ned is even capable of dying.
** Digby's longevity suggests anything he brings back is immortal unless he touches it again. What does that mean for Chuck's future?
*** It is specifically stated that it's possible to die again after being brought back (we see Chuck in danger a few times and we're obviously meant to take it seriously.) Digby's longevity more likely suggests that they don't age, and perhaps therefore can't die of old age or natural causes. Which opens up a whole new can of worms...
* FridgeLogic: So, Digby is a loving pet, but a tad neurotic because Ned can't pet him. In "Bitches," it is specifically stated that Ned feels bad that he can't pet his loyal dog, either. So, why doesn't Ned just invest in a pair of gloves (or don that beekeeper suit) and pet Digby silly?
** He actually DOES pet Digby quite a bit. He just doesn't pet him with his bare hands. Which may be the issue.
* HilariousInHindsight: All of the references to ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', since Lee Pace was cast as Thranduil in Film/TheHobbit.
* HoYay: It’s not even subtext in “Robbing Hood” — Daniel Hill (the lawyer) was in love with Gustav Hofer (his client and the victim of the week). Gustav was married so Daniel held his tongue. [[spoiler:Eventually it was revealed Gustav named Daniel the sole inheritor of his estate after overhearing Daniel defend Gustav against his gold-digging wife.]]
** Buddy Amicus [[spoiler:the murderer of the week]] in “Frescorts,” was motivated to start his friend rental business [[spoiler:and kill people]] after being rejected by football star Ares in high school. [[spoiler:Bonus points for keeping Ares’ body hidden in his office for years. Holy crap. Depraved Homosexual anyone?]]
** Speaking of “Frescorts,” Emerson’s mother believes for a minute that Ned and Emerson are dating. (Her deduction wasn’t unfounded since Emerson answered “the pie maker” when she asked who was keeping him fed lately earlier in the episode.)
** Chuck and Olive have quite a bit of LesYay themselves, which is ironic since they're in love with the same man.
* {{Moe}}:
** Aunt Vivian has quite a few "huggable" traits, despite being a fifty/sixty-something year old lady.
** And let's not even get started on every time Ned and Chuck are onscreen together.
* UnfortunateImplications: In a spirited, heated competition with the sweet shop across the street, Olive and Chuck team up and refer to themselves as "The Pie Hoes," as a cute nickname for "the women from The Pie Hole", but...
** This is a case of InsultBackfire, as the Pie Hole sign had earlier been damaged (by Dilly Balsam) to read 'The Pie Ho'.
** And considering the GettingCrapPastTheRadar this show does on a regular basis, this was probably on purpose.
