* BittersweetEnding: The Deltas are still expelled, but the WhereAreTheyNow reveals that they all go on to have (mostly) happy and prosperous lives, while the villains receive LaserGuidedKarma. Alternatively, however, according to Mrs. Wormer, Dean Wormer was fired as a result of the homecoming parade debacle. As a result, it could be possible that whomever they got to replace him probably allowed the Deltas to return.

* AboveTheInfluence: Pinto is sorely tempted (literally, by the devil on his shoulder) to have his way with Clorette after [[DudeShesLikeInAComa she's passed out]] but he resists said temptation. This is [[BlackComedyRape played for laughs]]. TheSeventies were a strange time.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted with Pinto, who may or may not have made it with Clorette at the end. Also averted with Greg, who is saving himself for marriage [[spoiler:until he loses his virginity against his will, in prison]].

* CaliforniaDoubling: While Faber College is supposedly in Pennsylvania (or Tennessee, if the state flag in the tribunal scene is any indication), filming actually took place at the University of Oregon. While WordOfGod has the setting in Pennsylvania, it isn't explicitly stated in the film, although Flounder is referred to as being from Harrisburg, and there is a Dickinson College in Pennsylvania (though it isn't named after Emily Dickinson), the general vibe seems to be of the Nowhere, USA type.

* CaptainErsatz: Boon, Bluto, Otter, D-Day, and Hoover were based on Harold Ramis, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, and Brian Doyle-Murray, respectively, though the actors were deemed too old to play college students when the film was made. Bluto subverts this with his classic "seven years of college down the drain" line. ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'' is something of a SpiritualSuccessor and was originally intended as a sequel, and contains many similar characters.
