YMMV / Who's the Boss?

  • Ear Worm: The opening theme.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: Tony gives up what was practically his dream job (as a college baseball coach) because Angela was unhappy in the small college town Tony coached in, practically hitting the Reset Button.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the episode where Jonathan's first girlfriend gets a crush on Tony, he utters the line "I never want anything to do with girls again". Cute then, but it becomes utterly hilarious since Danny Pintauro came out.
    • Similarly, the episode where Jonathan is a ballboy and is distracted enough by two girls for him to pick up a fair ball is quite funny due to that fact.
    • One time, Tony invited Sam's English professor over under the pretense of authenticating an autographed copy of Jane Eyre. The autograph is a forgery performed by Tony himself and not done very well. ("Bronte does not spell her name with a 'y'.") Given that Tony Danza would later teach an English class in real life, it's unlikely he'd make this mistake himself.
  • Shipping Bed Death: Though by the time Tony and Angela got together, this was more a symptom of the show's demise than a contributing factor.
  • Testosterone Brigade: Coaelesced firmly around Alyssa Milano.
  • Values Dissonance: These days the show's very title comes off as absurd; Tony is Angela's employee and their genders have nothing to do with it. This was mocked in Community when a professor devotes his career to analyzing the titular question, only for Abed to deflate him with a lengthy lecture about why Angela was unquestionably the boss.
