A reminder of the rules of Fridge Brilliance:
This is a personal moment for the viewer, so every example is signed by the contributor. If you start off with "This Troper", really, you have no excuse. We're going to hit you on the head.
This revelation can come from anywhere, even from this very page.
Also, this page is of a generally positive nature, and a Fridge Brilliance does not have to be Word Of God. In fact, it usually isn't, and the viewer might be putting more thought into it than the creator ever did. This is not a place for personal commentary on another's remark or arguing without adding a Fridge Brilliance comment of your own.
- In the first episode the Chief introduces Michael to DOB saying: This is Michael, the "issue" I was telling you about. Issue also means "offspring." They had the setup the idea of Mike being the Chief's son from the very first episode.
- In "Cooking for Six (Of The Deadliest People in the World)", Michael says he's "been eating a lot of butter." Later in the episode, all of the Chiefs are shown eating butter and greatly enjoying it. If an extreme love of butter is a normal trait in a Chief, it makes sense that Michael - being the Cracked.com Chief's son - would share it. - JJBF
- The various jokes about Swaim's... abnormal genitals came across as Fridge Brilliance to me after considering Cheifs to be their own species, with Exotic Equipment.
