YMMV: What's Happening!!

  • Acceptable Targets: Rerun and Shirley are mocked—and they insult each other—because of their weight. Mrs. Thomas is also obese, but nothing much is said about her weight.
    • Fear of Mrs. Thomas is probably what prevented that; would you make fun of her weight?
  • Ear Worm: The theme song
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Rerun.
  • Jump the Shark: The third season, when the three friends went to college, Raj and Dee moved out of Mrs. Thomas' house, and the characters "Big Earl" and "Little Earl" Barnett were introduced; many fans claim the show lost its original charm.
  • Tearjerker: The episode where Dee (yes, THAT Dee) befriends a rather gruff old man while her brother is in the hospital. Her reaction to his death, in addition to being a Tearjerker, is also a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming . Dee tells the man's daughter that he'll be all right because you can't get hurt sliding into a cloud.
