* DisproportionateRetribution: Ross' new neighbors in his apartment building believe in this trope way too much. Upon moving in, he's greeted by a fellow neighbor who welcomes him and then immediately requests that he contribute $100 for the retirement of their handyman.

The neighbors exile him from the community and deem him a horrible man. When Phoebe tries to smooth things over by telling them of their small flaws, she gets exiled too.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Zig-zagged. This episode initially plays it as a joke that Joey's new girlfriend Katie keeps hurting him by hitting him playfully. However, Joey is not okay with it and does end up breaking up with her. Rachel also gets a taste of it and realizes how wrong they were to mock Joey as the girl genuinely does hit very hard; she tries to give Katie a taste of her own medicine before throwing off all pretenses and giving her a good kick. Still, it's hard to imagine this episode as "The One with The Boy Who Hits Monica", so the DoubleStandard is clearly in effect.
* DudeNotFunny: After Chandler attempts to apologise to Monica by proposing to her the end credits scene shows the gang making fun of him by solving minor arguments by proposing. Ross gets carried away and jokingly proposes to Rachel to apologise for "[[Recap/FriendsS3E16TheOneTheMorningAfter that whole 'we were on a break' thing]]". The rest of the gang immediately tell him that isn't funny and walk away.
