  • Some non-profane rudeness, and terms some would consider mildly rude, such as "ding-dongs."
  • None throughout all the show's first three seasons (actually produced as one, but released and marketed as three), with the closest being the use of the line "it really sucks an egg" in the episode, "A Very Devilish Christmas," and the direct use of "hell" in the description for a promotional clip for S3 on social media.
