* In "SchoolPlay," after Helga (playing Juliet) says the line "Go, get thee hence, for I will not away," Stinky (playing the Friar) nonchalantly says, "Okey dokey," and walks away. If you don't know the play, this seems like a funny ad lib by Stinky. Once you've read or seen that scene, however, you see just how accurately that line describes how the Friar's exit is handled. A distraught girl tells him to leave her alone, and he... just does!

does! He has no line at that part of the script, but you can easily picture the actor shrugging and saying, "Okay," when he leaves her -- his nonsensical exit gives that impression ''exactly''.

** As a double (or perhaps triple) whammy, some drinks like Pina Coladas, Mudslides, or Daiquiris can easily be considered "Smoothies".

* Miriam's "Smoothies": Miriam probably came up with "smoothies" as a code word so no one in the family (Helga and Olga namely) would ever know that she's an alcoholic, much like the show writers came up with "smoothies" as a code word so the censors wouldn't notice that they were referencing alcoholism. In fact, Helga could probably casually say her mom sleeps after drinking smoothies... and it doesn't sound that bad.

This also mirrors how some adults (at the time) would have referred to alcoholic drinks as something else so their kids don't say their parents drink.

* In "Olga Gets Engaged", Olga fell for[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Doug LeSHAM]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who appears to be a sociopath that would have ruined her life]] and came way too close to marrying him. His actions during the episode leave no question about what would have happened if they tied the knot. Helga walks in on him during [[YourCheatingHeart a phone call in which he's declaring his love for someone else]] and lying to her about his location... The wedding.

* Crossed with "Fridge Tearjerker", Arnold's joke against Helga in "April Fool's Day" is a Fridge BatmanGambit. The episode takes place after ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'', meaning that Arnold is aware that Helga's in love with him. While Helga may come across as an idiot for falling for such an obvious gag, it was only natural for her to do so. Arnold knows that Helga will buy the "belated birthday present" line if it's coming from him because he knows she can't resist a kind gesture from the boy she adores, so she takes the bait anyway, on the off-chance that it really was a belated birthday present. Instead she gets temporarily blinded. It was actually quite cruel for Arnold to prey on her desires for love only to metaphorically yank her chain after baiting her with false hope (even though he didn't know that the flash would blind her despite Phil telling him it was a '''blinding''' flash). No wonder Helga was so desperate for revenge against him.

** Despite Airing after "Cool Jerk", "24 Hours To Live" is a remake of the pilot episode, making it canonically the first episode of the series, so yeah, this took place before Arnold earned Harold's respect.
