YMMV: Who's the Boss?
  • 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. Since Danny Pintauro came out? Hilarious
  • 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.
  • 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.
