* HarsherInHindsight: In TheNewTens Valerie Harper announced that she was diagnosed with brain cancer, thus rendering the entire death subplot as this.
* {{Moe}}: Mrs. Poole.
* WTHCastingAgency: [[Series/{{Today}} Willard Scott]] is a decent actor ([[{{Adorkable}} and he's pretty goddamn lovable]]), but ''how'' exactly did he get a role on this show? (Granted, it was on an infrequent basis for about two seasons, but it's still pretty weird.)
