YMMV: The Crazy Ones
  • Come for the X, Stay for the Y: Come for the Robin Williams name recognition, stay for the Hilarious Outtakes.
  • Ear Worm: “Sydney, you’re one of a kind....Sydney, you're so fine.”
  • Harsher in Hindsight: With Robin Williams' death so soon after the show's run, it's quite painful to remember all those jokes about Simon's worry that he won't live to see any grandkids Sidney might give him.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The clients that want Simon to sell an erectile dysfunction pill, which Robin Williams once did on Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
    • Simon's apparently random quip about a "gay Brad" in "The Spectacular", when Gordon Lewis, played by a Brad (Garret), is revealed to be gay.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Andrew’s sisters circumcised him themselves when the doctor who was supposed to do it didn’t arrive. Fortunately, they apparently ‘did a fantastic job’, but the kind of recklessness they display is horrifying.
    • Also, Andrew’s sister Elaine is a serial rapist who rapes men while they’re too drunk to know it happened the next day, and no-one seems to care.
  • Too Good to Last: One season and done. Though given the death of Robin Williams before a second season would have started, it was probably for the best.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Invoked in-universe about the women-only holiday Sydney was going to. Lesbian overtones are one thing, but then she brings up the "Exploration Of The Flower" seminar.
    • In the same episode, Andrew is forced to change into a tracksuit leftover from a contract with Pringles, leading to this gem:
    "Can we go inside? My butt says "Grab a Can", and that right there is a leather bar."
