*** An exception to this is Lamman Rucker who played as Sasha's husband, Brianna's adoptive father, and Mr. Brown's nephew, Will. In real life, Rucker is ten years older than Denise Boutte, and a combined 18 years older than Logan Browning. This can be considered an example of {{Dawson Casting}} in Lamman Rucker's case.

Browning played as Brianna who was a teenager between 15-18 throughout the show. In real life, Denise Boutte is only eight years older than Logan Browning.

* DatingServiceDisaster: In the episode, "Meet your Match," Mr. Brown and Edna try to use an online dating service to help Cora find a romantic interest. [[EpicFail This ends badly.]]


** At the end of the episode, "Meet the Sugar Mama", Sasha's actress Denise Boutte pronounces "millions" as "MILL-ee-YONS", with heavy emphasis on the first and last syllables and on the middle "i" sound, but she does so ''intentionally as a pun'', as an allusion to the actress who played as Claudia on the episode whose name is Christina Milian. After doing so, [[ThrowItIn David Mann and Robert Ri'chard try to keep their composure, until David Mann almost starts corpsing and bursting into laughter. Denise Boutte is also seen smiling and slightly shaking her head, trying to prevent herself from actually laughing out loud as well.]] This blooper was never edited out of the final cut.

*** One example is when Mr. Brown and Cora are retelling old memories of their late father and grandfather, Pop Brown, and Cora is actually seen in the flashbacks as having a close relationship with Pop Brown as her grandfather. ''However'', in several plays and movies by Tyler Perry concerning Cora's relationship with Mr. Brown, Cora is actually stated to have never known Mr. Brown's father personally or closely, and it is stated that she never met him while he was alive. In both the 2004 stage play and the 2008 movie, both of the same name, Cora's first time actually seeing her grandfather is at his funeral.

* TheGhost: Mr. Brown's father and Cora's grandfather who is mentioned and referred to obsessively and extensively in many anecdotes by Mr. Brown. There is a painting of him on the wall in their house. This can be considered KilledOffscreen, as he did die before the events of the show occur.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: In many episodes Mr. Brown, Will, Sasha, and Cora make allusions and references to older, previous works by Tyler Perry and characters from those older works, most notably like Madea, since she was one of Mr. Brown's former love–interests–turned–enemy, and Cora's biological mother.
** Also used with SeriesContinuityError in many episodes because sometimes Mr. Brown and Cora say things or have flashbacks in reference to the plots and characters of earlier plays and movies by Tyler Perry, but sometimes their statements and memories are actually canonical contradictions.

Added DiffLines:

** [[Creator/TylerPerry Mabel "Madea" Simmons]], Cora's biological mother, could be considered a ghost character as well, because she is referred and alluded to in many episodes by Mr. Brown and Cora, but is never actually seen onscreen.

Added DiffLines:

* IdenticalGrandson: Exaggerated and Played For Laughs. In one episode where Mr. Brown and Cora tell the rest of the characters who live in the Brown House about Brown's late father and Cora's grandfather, Pop Brown, David Mann plays as Mr. Brown's father in the flashbacks. See TheGhost trope section above.


Added DiffLines:

* SameClothesDifferentYear: Played Straight. In one episode where Mr. Brown and Cora tell the rest of the characters who live in the Brown House about Brown's late father and Cora's grandfather, Pop Brown (see [[TheGhost The Ghost]] trope section above) through a series of flashbacks, Mr. Brown and Cora's younger versions are played by younger child and teen actors who wear the same types of clothes as their older canon selves would wear. This is also used with IdenticalGrandson.
