Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The facts are these:There once was a piemaker who could raise the dead with a touch — but only for sixty seconds, or else someone else would have to die to take their place. If he touched the resurrected person again, they died permanently. One day, the piemaker was given the opportunity to raise Chuck, his childhood sweetheart... So he did. This act brought the two much closer, but tragically kept them apart; one more touch would mean Chuck would be dead forever. Along with his undead dog, a grumpy private eye, Chuck's eccentric aunts and a singing waitress, they solved murders, asking the dead who their murderers were in those sixty seconds and then collecting the often substantial reward for finding the killers.That could be the premise of Pushing Daisies if it weren't a laughably inadequate description.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Created by Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me creator Bryan Fuller, and set In a World... lavishly decorated in Fifties styles, the show effortlessly makes its faintly ridiculous plots believable, as it deftly traces the line between earnestness and irony. Its fast-paced and witty dialogue, quirky characters, and great acting really bring out what can only be called the heart of the show: showing how people connect — or don't connect — with their fellow humans.Unfortunately, it ended up doomed to live up to its name. The first season was truncated by the 2007 TV Strikes, and the second season didn't have much of a head of steam under it. The writing team was given 3 episodes to wrap up the series, and the last episode was aired on June 13, 2009 - one year, eight months, one week and three days after the first. The two seasons together make up a normal full-sized season.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Recaps page is here.

Four-Philosophy Ensemble: The Cynic: Emerson.note Knight In Sour Armor/The Snark Knight. Only Sane Man also applies considering he works with a dead girl, a miracle worker, and a zany girl. The Optimist: Chuck.note The Heart/Plucky Girl. Also The Determinator considering she doesn't give up despite losing everything save for an extremely difficult relationship with Ned. The Realist: Ned.note The Captain who frequently makes the final call between Chuck's/Olive's unbreakable idealism and Emerson's extreme cynicism. The Apathetic/Conflicted: Olive.note Supporting Protagonist/Cute and Psycho/The Ditherer, especially considering she is frequently left out on secrets and goings-on.

That Reminds Me of a Song
 Pushing Daisies / int_1ab65185
comment
That Reminds Me of a Song: With Broadway actresses Kristin Chenoweth and Ellen Greene in the cast, it was inevitable. Unfortunately, Olive was provided a missed love connection in the person of one Broadway veteran Raul Esparza, who... well, would a duet been too much to ask for? File his song-less appearances on the show along with that of Christopher Seiber.

Clown Car: A number of clowns were driving away from the circus when they were forced off the road and into the lake. When their car is dragged up and the police start pulling the bodies out, it starts out with only one clown...and then another one is pulled out and another one and another one (including a clown wearing stilts), and they just keep coming.

Stealth Pun: Usually Subverted, in that the narrator does not spare himself the joy of actually making the pun. For example, in "The Smell of Success" Ned dredges up a sock from the sink in the kitchen of the Pie Hole. By the reactions of Chuck, Olive, and Emerson, its smell is most unpleasant.

Chekhov's Gun

comment
Chekhov's Gun: "Circus Circus" has Chekhov's Cannon. A midget with a cannon happens to pass by when Ned and Emerson are at the ringmaster's trailer... then, later in the episode, the human cannonball gets fired at them. Charles Charles' pocket watch also applies. It was shown in the very first episode, and cropped up again when Lawrence Schatz stole it note the funeral director revealed to be running a grave robbing racket in S01E03, and then became relevant again come Season 2. Emerson Cod's revolver also applies; throughout the show it is used only to wave around, but it finally gets fired in "S02E07: Robbing Hood" when he destroys an escape rope. It's even noted by Cod:

Aborted Arc
 Pushing Daisies / int_23698fa8
comment
Aborted Arc: When the first season was cut short due to the Writer's Strike, most of the plot threads set up during the first half received abrupt Ass Pull resolutions. When the second season suffered a similar fate upon the show's cancellation, most lingering threads were simply left hanging, though a choice few received mention in a Ass Pull epilogue. Sadly, the two half seasons do not equal a whole in terms of story.

comment
Bilingual Bonus: In "Dim Sum Lose Sum", the spoken Chinese is all real. except for adding details about the speakeasy, Chuck's translation is nearly verbatim. The sign in Emerson's window, supposedly for his PI business, is actually for a restaurant across from the firm that specializes in pork ribs. Because it is a sign from another business visible in Emerson's office, it is readable from inside the office instead of backwards as a sign for the PI firm would be from inside the building.

Disappeared Dad: Chuck's father died when she was eight, as an unfortunate side effect of Ned bringing back his mother. Ned's father just abandoned him.

Cursed With Awesome
 Pushing Daisies / int_309b8806
comment
Cursed with Awesome: Ned can revive the dead with a touch, and has used that power to revive his dog and later his childhood sweetheart, make lots of money investigating murders, and open a thriving bakery by using old, rotted fruit in his pies (since it becomes fresh-off-the-vine as soon as he touches it). And as a result, he can't touch the woman he loves lest she drop dead instantly, ditto his beloved pet, and if he ever eats any of his pies the fruit will wither and rot in his mouth. Although, if he ever wanted to make a pie for himself, he could get around the whole rotting-in-his-mouth problem by actually using fresh ingredients, which he does later in the series. His second revival was his mother whose lingering caused the death of Chuck's father and then she promptly died when she kissed him good night.

The Pollyanna: Chuck. Despite losing her father, being unable to speak to her aunts, and completely unable to make contact with the man she loves, she still keeps her optimism for the majority of the series.

comment
Establishing Series Moment: The very first scene of the show is of young Ned and Digby running playfully through a gorgeous field of flowers until Digby abruptly gets run over by a truck and Ned resurrects him. This instantly establishes both the premise of the series and its signature mix of storybook whimsy and morbid humor.

Sound-Effect Bleep: in "Circus Circus", Ned repeats the secretary's description of the head clown as a "real low-down, dirty _____________" just as a circus performer walks by breathing fire, the flames both drowning Ned out and preventing viewers from reading his lips. When the flames clear, Emerson says "I've never heard you say those words." in "Bad Habits", a revived nun swears a blue streak, conveniently drowned out by a church bell.

Getting Crap Past the Radar
 Pushing Daisies / int_4b86a724
comment
Getting Crap Past the Radar: "Jock-off 2000." "Well, I'll be dental-dammed." In the same episode, after hearing a man is a "cosmo drinking shopaholic," a character remarks "queer"... to which Emerson says "you bet it's odd!" "Simone had come... and gone." How in holy hell do they get that past the radar? Simone's dog training in general leads to many Double Entendres about the word "come". Also in the episode "The Norwegians," the crime lab used by the titular Norwegians is called Mother, with the lettering on the side saying "Mobile Investigative Lab Facility." The acronym spells a certain popular term for a hot mom. Naming an episode "Bitches" when only one female dog is involved? Randy Mann. That is all. Olive, in one episode: "I used to think 'masturbation' meant chewing."note Fun fact: the word that means chewing that starts with an "m" is "mastication," which does sound a lot like "masturbation," which is probably why "mastication" isn't used much in this day and age. Chuck in episode 2 talks about a tee shirt Ned gave her for her eighth birthday, "Be kind to animals, kiss a beaver." Also Lampshaded by Chuck's aunts, who said Ned had a dirty mind and called him "Beaver Boy" following that incident. Ned referring to his abilities as "Waking and Baking". In "Corpsicle," one of the suspects deliberately messes up Emerson Cod's name, referring to him as Mr. Cox. Come & Sleep Hotel. from "Oh Oh Oh It's Magic" "I would have eaten anything for that man!" In the conclusion of "Comfort Food": A possibly unintentional one: his ex tells Emerson to light a red lantern by his office window when he's ready to talk. In Chinese culture, a single red lantern indicates a brothel, and Emerson's office is in Chinatown. The second episode has a woman who clearly is bulimic, but the show dances around mentioning it directly and plays it for laughs.

Meaningful Name: Many of them, including Harold Hundin ("Hundin" is German for "female dog") in "Bitches" Buddy Amicus ("amicus" is Latin for "friend") in "Frescorts" Bao Ting ("bao" is Cantonese for "bun") in "Dim Sum Lose Sum" Napoleon LeNez ("Le Nez" is French for "the nose") in "Smell of Success" Coeur d'Coeurs (French for "Heart of Hearts", symbolizing Ned's suppressed emotions and past). Arguably, Ned's name - an anagram of "end", symbolizing his connection to death.

All Germans Are Nazis
 Pushing Daisies / int_7089d02e
comment
All Germans Are Nazis: Invoked and subverted twice. In "Bad Habits", a threatening guy with an accent, thought to be an 'Angry German' by Emerson Cod, was actually Swiss (and non-threatening). In "Comfort Food" was the Waffle Nazi, who appeared with full Lederhosen get-up, Gratuitous German, speech patterns, and threatening personality - only for it to be revealed as fake: he is neither German nor actually speaks the language, but is putting on a show.

And the Adventure Continues: Due to the sudden cancelling of the show, numerous plot threads were either abruptly tied or left hanging. By its finalé, Series 2 ends with: Vivian discovering what occurred between Charles and Lily, Chuck revealing herself to Lily and Vivian, Ned and Chuck still continuing their relationship, Emerson getting "Lil Gumshoe" published and presumably finding Penny, and Olive staying with Randy Mann and going on to start her own novelty restaurant.

Smells of Death: One episode introduces a man obsessed with scents and odors, and he instantly takes an interest in Chuck and Digby, Ned's girlfriend and dog respectively that he brought back to life with his magic touch. He can smell that there's something off about them and wants to know what, as there's not much that he can't normally suss out through smell. Averted in Bitter Sweets. The murder plot is handled in the first 12 minutes. Well, the first one anyway.

"Blind Idiot" Translation: The S2 episode "Robbing Hood" erroneously claims that the Latin phrase "orbis pro vox" translates as "ring for rights" (as in, "ring bells for rights"), when it can at best be translated as "a voice for the deprived".note And even that translation is only possible by ignoring the word order and taking "orbis" as the ablative plural of a fairly obscure adjective ("orbus") rather than its much more common noun meaning of "sphere".

Foreshadowing
 Pushing Daisies / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: In "The Smell of Success" Aunt Lily mentions a sweater that belonged to Charlotte's mother. The narrator mentions that this made her go to "her dark place." The moment is framed such that it appears Chuck's aunt simply misses her niece. But a later episode reveals that Aunt Lily is Chuck's mother. In the first episode, Lily mentions that Chuck used to threaten to bake anti-depressants into their food in order to cheer them up. Come episode two...

Continuity Nod: After nabbing a criminal with a fake arm in "Pigeon" (Ned: "Is this the hand you were holding?"), Ned keeps the arm. In later episodes, he uses it to pet Digby and fish things out of a vat of taffy. The bee brooch used as a bug in "Bzzzzzz!" is also used for the aforementioned Comic Role Play in "Oh Oh Oh—It's Magic"

Leitmotif
 Pushing Daisies / int_9f6fb586
comment
Leitmotif: The love theme, which is somewhat the theme of the entire series. Emerson Cod's theme, which is a noir-esque jazz piece with vibraphone and finger snapping. Olive Snook's Sexophone theme. In the season two opener, "Bzzzzzzz!" a cheerfully tango-ized variation of "Flight of the Bumblebee" threads under and through the rest of the background music. Arrangements of "Ave Maria" appear in convent scenes fairly often.

Homage
 Pushing Daisies / int_a1a1491e
comment
Homage: Exactly how much this show owes to the classic French film Amélie varies from "it's the writer's favourite film, there's bound to be some similarities" to "attempted shot-for-shot remake". Also see the homage to Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds in "Bitter Sweets". As well as the Hitchcock references in "Bitches", culminating with Emerson's dream homage to Vertigo. In some episodes Chuck's fashion style is a clear tribute to Audrey Hepburn. A lot of scenes are shot in style of a Film Noir with the window shades casting shadows over the characters' faces, most notably in "Girth", "Bitches", and "Bad Habits" when Olive goes to hire Emerson.

City with No Name: The city where the main action takes place is never named, though we do know that it's in (fictitious) Papen County, 131 miles due north of Coeur d'Coeurs (Ned and Chuck's equally fictitious hometown). Information on placing Papen County in a US state or region is internally inconsistent. Ned's apartment building, though, is "played" by the famous Bradbury Building in Los Angeles.

Obfuscating Disability: In a season 2 episode we see a brief flashback to Emerson Cod's childhood. His mother faked putting him in danger to expose a man who had made fraudulent insurance claims. She pushed a stroller with a baby doll in it down a flight of stairs- the allegedly wheelchair-bound man with a neckbrace and a broken arm ran from his wheelchair to catch the baby with both hands.

Came Back Wrong: All of the bodies of the people Ned brings back to life remain as they were when he touched them. This is not always pleasant to watch. Interestingly, this doesn't seem to apply to the fruits Ned resurrects. One explanation or rationalization could be that Ned's powers can reverse/heal the effects of time or death by "natural" causes but can't reverse physical trauma.

Idiosyncratic Wipes
 Pushing Daisies / int_bdc0a18e
comment
Idiosyncratic Wipes: Often an Iris Out. These were once extremely common, especially in cinema, but they look old-fashioned or even slightly cheesy to modern eyes, which are used to more unobtrusive scene wipes. (Therefore, perfectly suited to the show's theme of retro charm.). In "Oh Oh Oh—It's Magic", some of the scene transitions are curtains opening and closing. "Robbing Hood" uses an animated bell for some of its scene transitions. "Window Dressed To Kill" uses slide-close doors. "Kerplunk" used shark jaws.

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Alfredo Aldarisio. Initially a love interest for Olive, he eventually fixes the espresso machine for her and attempts to catch her eye to no avail. Later on in the series, he then simply disappears with minimal explanation and the Alfredo/Olive subplot is dropped, only returning when Olive is quickly paired with Randy Mann when the show suddenly ended. Justified, in that Alfredo's last appearance is in an episode where he is Put on a Bus, and Olive realizes she loved him too late.

Unbelievable Source Plot
 Pushing Daisies / int_c6dd74c5
comment
Unbelievable Source Plot: Subverted because the investigator is on the inside and therefore knows the secret. The protagonist can bring the dead to life for a minute and interview them about their death. Sometimes, it feels like they still have to lie all the time to others about why they know so much. Not *quite* a paradigmatic example, but still showcases the endless lies necessary to cover their secret investigative trick.

Shout-Out
 Pushing Daisies / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: "Follow the yellow thick hose!" Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds Emerson describes a character as going Blood Simple. The Godfather Part II: "I knew it was you, Fredo." Happy Time Temp Agency The Sound of Music Father Dowling Mysteries Mash Hamlet: "What got thee to a nunnery?" Sister Christian "The Legend of Merle McQuoddy" is larded with shout outs to the 1977 Disney movie Pete's Dragon (1977). The movie had starred Pushing Daisies' narrator Jim Dale. Superman The Movie Vertigo: in "Bitches" "You want to walk down together?" "That'd be swell, Harvey." They Might Be Giants : Olive makes a metaphor about "a birdcage in your soul" and sings Birdhouse In Your Soul not long after in the same episode. "I'm channeling fear into anger." "Anger leads to hate." "And hate leads to stress baking." "Magicians?" "Illusionists!" Emerson describes Chuck as happy-Golightly. A 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' example appears in episode 3, when Alfredo Aldarisio is imagining the atmosphere leaving the earth and sucking him out into space while destroying the earth, you can see a yellow bulldozer driving by outside. Another 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' example appears in "The Norwegians" — the charcoal sketch of Dwight Dixon Vivian gives to Emerson has Dwight posed like Rose in Titanic (1997) (complete with his pocket watch around his neck like Rose's sapphire necklace).

The Nicknamer: Emerson has a nickname for every character, every episode. Especially so when you consider he calls even calls pre-nicknamed characters by his own terms; despite Charlotte Charles understandably being called "Chuck", Emerson instead opts for "Dead Girl".

comment
No Name Given: If Ned has a last name, we haven't yet learned it. The narrator, who often refers to characters by their full names, calls him "young Ned" in the flashbacks and "the pie maker" in the present. Doubles as a meaningful name, given that it is an anagram for 'End' and 'NDE', the acronym for 'Near Death Experience'.

Cosmic Deadline: The last couple of episodes are a very obvious rush job that fail to resolve most of the lingering plot threads.

Faking the Dead: Chuck, sort of. Olive thinks Chuck's faking her death.

Running Gag: Emerson has trouble keeping track of the difference between "narcoleptic" and "necrophiliac."

Undeath Always Ends: Averted with Chuck, Digby, and Mr. Charles. Exaggerated with everyone else, for good reason.

comment
Department of Redundancy Department: everywhere, as well as all over the place. (See also Repetitive Name, below.) Chuck's aunts used to be the Darling Mermaid Darlings. There's a life insurance firm called Uber-Life Life Insurance. The travel agency Chuck frequented was Boutique Travel Travel Boutique. It was run by... Dee Dee.

Theme Naming
 Pushing Daisies / int_fd94c4ac
comment
Theme Naming: Ned's three closest human associates all have food-related names: Olive Snook, Emerson Cod, Charlotte Charles. (A charlotte is a French dessert: a "crust" made of ladyfinger cookies enclosing a mousse of some sort. Her nickname, "Chuck", can also refer to a cut of beef.) Also, both Snook and Cod are types of fish.

Brick Joke: Emerson's confusion of "narcoleptic" and "necrophiliac" — set up in "Pie-lette" for a payoff in "Pigeon".

Cut Short
 Pushing Daisies / int_ffa0483f
comment
Cut Short: The finale is a mad rush to try to tie up several of the loose ends, and misses a few in the process. Stupid network. We never did find out what happened to Charles Charles or meet Ned's dad beyond a five second shot at the end of one episode. He was going to be played by George Hamilton. Stupid network.
