Go To

  • Awesome Music: It's hard not to like at least one version of "Little Boxes".
    • Almost every episode has a lyrically appropriate song for the last few seconds of the show that run into the credits. It's almost always awesome.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: In season five, Nancy asking Andy to suckle her. Subverted in that it is mentioned once later in the episode, but then, never again.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Despite her mastery of the art of Being a Bitch, Celia still manages to be one of the most popular side characters.
  • Evil Is Sexy: While not evil per se, Celia Hodes does somehow manage to make being an insufferable cunt oddly sexy.
    • In Nancy's case it's Ambiguously Evil Is Sexy.
    • Pilar however was a straight up example of this trope.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Nancy and Andy, so much.
  • Fridge Logic: If Nancy had sold the house in Agrestic back in 2005-06 when the real estate market was high, she'd have been at least free and clear with enough for a halfway decent place elsewhere, if not a nice nest egg on top of that...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Doug's son Josh was revealed to be living in Chicago. Josh was played by Justin Chatwin in the Pilot, and he later went on to star in the Foreign Remake of Shameless, which takes place in Chicago.
    • It is revealed in the finale that Isabelle has undergone sex reassignment surgery and is now named Bruce. A few years later, and one of the most public and high-profile transitions is that of Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce.

    • One of the episodes of season 4 is titled "I am the Table".
  • Jerkass Woobie: Celia. Yes, she is, by her own admission, a colossal bitch, but you have to feel sorry for someone that just about no one aside from Nancy (kind of) likes. For one thing, her own daughter was going to cut her up and sell her for parts and no one was willing to put up the money to prevent it. There are other times too, like her period in prison when it was made fairly clear that she was another inmate's unwilling "girlfriend". But then again, given the sheer amount of times Celia tries to extort, blackmail, abuse or otherwise screw over the others, you'd be hard pressed to think that she doesn't bring a hefty chunk of it onto herself.
  • Les Yay: Celia and Nancy, which is sometimes Foe Yay too. Isabelle lampshades this at one point. It's quite flagrant much later when Celia begins adopting Nancy's look and mannerisms, including iced latte and doe-eyed expression.

  • Seasonal Rot: Generally considered to have gone astray after season 3 or during season 4. Whether or not it jumped back is highly, highly debated.
  • The Scrappy: Silas seems to be headed this way in season 7; Jill and her twin daughters are ones as well.
  • Tear Jerker: The ending of the series, for both the obvious and not-so-obvious reasons.
  • Unpopular Popular Character: Celia. Nobody in-universe likes her, least of all her husband and children, but she's one of the show's most popular characters with fans and critics.
  • What The Hell, Casting Agency?: Is that an Olsen twin? As a pot smoking Fundamentalist Christian?

How well does it match the trope?
