  • Funny Moments: The flashback scene, which retells some of Scott's family history in a hilariously over-the-top manner. It helps budget cuts forced them from going with a realistic portrayal to making it cheesy and outlandish.
    • The scene with Ken and Liz in the spa, zooming out to reveal they are sitting in one of many on display at Ken's tub shop!
    • Also in Great Ken and Liz Moments:
    Liz: What do I want? I'll tell you what I want! I want Ken Railings to walk in here right now, and say 'Pam Shortt's broken both her legs, and I wanna dance with YOU!'
    *shot of Pam screaming in her truck as it rolls over*
    Ken (flinging open door, striding over to Liz, and speaking in monotone): Pam Shortt's broken both her legs, and I wanna dance with you.
    Kylie: ...That was unexpected.
  • Ham and Cheese: Barry Fife is made of this trope.
  • Hollywood Homely: Arguably a rare subversion. While Fran cleans up nicely she doesn't become conventionally beautiful.
  • Moment of Awesome: See also: Slow Clap.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Barry is just a conservative authority figure until the revelation that he lied to Scott about his father and fixed the competition beforehand to destroy Scott's credibility like he had done to Shirley.


How well does it match the trope?
