Added DiffLines:

* ModelScam: Robert Barone is scammed this way by a con-artist who insists that for $2,000 dollars he can get Robert a career in outsize male modelling, as there aren't too many guys of your height and build. Robert succumbs out of vanity and afterwards refuses to file a complaint as it would be too embarrassing to admit in front of other cops that he fell for it.

Added DiffLines:

* InnocuouslyImportantEpisode: "Who's Handsome?" in season 1, where Debra introduces Robert to Amy, who would become a recurring character throughout the series (eventually becoming a regular in season 7). The two would marry in the season 7 finale.

Added DiffLines:

** "Ally's F": While Mr. Putnam was being a total jerkass in the way he said it, he did have a point that it doesn't matter ''why'' Ally was distracted during math class- she was still failing and needed to be more attentive.

Added DiffLines:

** In a late episode, Robert gets scammed out of $2,000 by a group of con artists who made him believe that he could be a model. He decides not to pursue charges due not wanting to admit to Amy and his parents that he got ripped off and mainly because it would make him look like a "giant schmuck" to his cop buddies.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Jazz Records", Frank's been stubbornly refusing to listen to the [=CDs=] Ray bought him, since he's a fan of vinyl instead. Toward the end, Ray asks what he's supposed to do with the [=CDs=] now. Frank tells him to take them and listen to them, and maybe he'll like them.
--> '''Frank''': You should keep an open mind about things.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Liars", Marie pronounces ESPN as "Espan".

Added DiffLines:

** In "The Bird", Frank is deeply disturbed over Pat killing a wounded bird ("That bird was one of God's creatures!"), but when she brings in the Thanksgiving turkey, he immediately changes his tune: "All right, break me off a leg there!"


** [[{{HelloNurse}} Stefania]] was also a good example of this trope. [[{{Lampshade}} Lampshaded]] in one episode where the Barones are hosting a party for singles, in hopes of getting Peter together with a girl. When Stefania shows up and takes off her winter coat, revealing a sexy dress on her already-sexy body, the other women simply declared "I'm out!" and left, assuming that they had no hope of getting a guy's attention with Stefania in the room. However, [[spoiler: it turns out they were actually wrong: ''Peggy'', aka the "Cookie Hitler Lady" as Ray calls her, and Peter end up falling in love]].

* HelloNurse: Stefania. Invoked in pretty much every episode she appeared in.

Added DiffLines:

** Discussed by Warren and Lois in "Fighting In-Laws":
--> '''Lois''': I am not withholding sex from you, Warren! I'm tired! Can't I ever be tired? Is that ''allowed''?\\
'''Warren''': Well, ''I'm'' never too tired...

Added DiffLines:

** In "Counseling", when Ray's trying to get out of couples' therapy:
--> '''Debra''': Ray, we fight ''all'' the time.\\
'''Ray''': Not "fight", "tiffs"! Little tiffs!

Added DiffLines:

* PreAssKickingOneLiner: In "The Sigh", after Ray tells her to get out of the basement:
--> '''Debra''': ''(currently on the phone)'' Amy... can I call you back?

Added DiffLines:

** "Frank Paints the House": Frank insists on painting the house yellow, despite Ray wanting it to be white. When Ray confronts him about it after firing him, Frank reveals his reasons: "Because yellow covers better! It won't fade as fast! And you got white houses all around you, it makes your house pop a little! And it goes with the trim and [[SophisticatedAsHell friggin']] daisies you got!" While Frank was wrong to do it without asking Ray's permission, he had valid reasons for doing so, it wasn't just to have his way.
