* GhostTrain: One episode was about Arnold investigating the Legend of Engine 25: a supposed train piloted by a mad engineer which takes its passengers to the fiery heart of the underworld. It turns out be a DoubleSubversionbecause there ''is'' a real Engine 25 -- an industrial train which stops at a steel mill, and all the supernatural phenomena Arnold witnesses have perfectly rational explanations, but after Arnold [[GaveUpTooSoon concludes it's an urban myth]], [[spoiler:the audience is shown the train leaving the steel mill with the [[RealAfterAll ghost of the engineer riding on its front]].]]

* DadTheVeteran:
** Grandpa was in World War Two. When tasked with driving a truck loaded with spoiled meat for disposal during the Battle of the Bulge, he was ambushed by hungry Germans who start eating the meat despite his warnings. Their commanding officer thinks he's trying to trick them, so he pretends he was and has been outsmarted, then captures them when they get food poisoning and directs friendly troops through the area, which is implied to be critical to Allied victory at the Bulge.
** Gerald's father was in Vietnam, but in a desk job, much to Gerald's disappointment that he wasn't a war hero like Arnold's Grandpa. He eventually reveals he was taking paperwork to another base when he came across a wounded soldier. He saved the soldier's life by using the paperwork as bandages and taking him to a field hospital.

** In "The Baseball", Mickey Kaline tells Arnold a story, saying that the pitcher he was batting against was "pitching like a man on fire". Two years later in "Dangerous Lumber", the roles would be reversed with Arnold telling Mickey his own story in which the pitcher Arnold was batting against was "pitching like a man on fire".

* EroticEating: A G-rated instance occurs in "Married", where Helga's dream of marriage to Arnold ends with them [[SpaghettiKiss sharing a pastrami sandwich and kissing in the middle]]...but unlike most [[SpaghettiKiss Spaghetti Kisses]], this appears to be an ''intentional'' act.

* DetentionEpisode: "Full Moon", Harold, Stinky, and Sid {{moon|ing}} Principal Wartz. Arnold is the only witness, and because he refuses to rat them out, Principal Wartz gives Arnold 30 days of hard labor in detention. If Arnold confesses before the end of the deadline, Principal Wartz will lift his punishment, and if he doesn't, he will mark Arnold as a "Failure to cooperate" on his permanent record, but Arnold still refuses to rat his friends out. Near the end of the episode, Harold, Stinky and Sid's guilty consciences catch up with them and they confess what they did to Principal Wartz just before he can mark Arnold as a failure to cooperate.
