No Such Thing as Bad Publicity: Played straight and subverted.
- Played straight when Chuck has the cops raid his own pub opening. Also in the next episode, with this comment:
Chuck: Do you think people go to the Mercer for the maid service? They go to see Russel Crowe throw a hissy.
- Subverted later in season three when Chuck is accused of sexual harassment and ends up having to sign over his hotel to save it from the bad PR.
- Played straight by the show itself. When a reviewer called the show: "A parent's worst nightmare" the publicity department put that quote up on huge posters and used it for advertisement.
