YMMV: Brace Face
- Anvilicious: After Sharon became a vegetarian, virtually every other episode featured Sharon shoving animal rights down people's throats and how right she is to do so. In one specific episode, she gets her brother to join a duck conservation group. When she finds out they condone hunting, she goes off on a rampage on how evil it is, even telling off Granola Girl Hannah for saying their justification is that it prevents overpopulation saying that nature would work its way out. By the end of the episode, she gets her brother to tell the people off for supporting hunting.
- There was of course the standard Free the Frogs episode, although it is mostly anvilicious since the frogs are pre-killed in real life, and Sharon befriending an otherwise bitchy character solely for agreeing with her about the frog.
- At the end of the episode where Sharon learns to accept Alden as a meat eater she says she can still "work on him" when they're married.
- Ironically in season three she has to learn to eat meat due to acquiring anemia.
- It's tempting to say this has something to do with Alicia Silverstone, Sharon's first voice actress and the one plugging the environmentalism, leaving the show in season three.
- Harsher in Hindsight: In the episode The Doctor Is In an epidemic goes through the junior high with people convinced they've got the bubonic plague, which was really a contagious yet non-fatal rash (students having thought it was a plague after a lecture on it), the absurdity of the situation came from the idea of 21st Century, First World students thinking they have a Medieval disease that mostly occurs in the poorest of countries after 1900. Flash forward to 2012, where a man in Oregon contracted it after pulling a rat out of his choking cat.
- Retroactive Recognition: Sharon's younger brother is voiced by Michael Cera, before he was known in the United States for playing George Michael Bluth on Arrested Development and the title character on Scott Pilgrim vs. The Universe.
