** In the early episode "Field Trip", Arnold feels sorry for the aquarium's turtle Lockjaw and wishes he could set him free. This is accomplished by Arnold and his grandma sneaking into the aquarium at night, removing Lockjaw from the aquarium right from under the guard's nose, ([[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy not that he was paying much attention in the first place]]) and turning him loose in the river. Um, okay....

** Lila has one that plays whenever she goes on one of her "ever so" familiar expositions about how much she adores something. It's actually rearranged and set to lyrics in "Eugene, Eugene!", as the song Lila auditions with.

** [[TearJerker Tearjerkingly]] [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] in "Helga and the Nanny". When Miriam gets a new job, Helga’s parents hire a nanny named Inga to look after Helga. However, while Inga actually cares for Helga, Helga feels as though Inga is trying to control her life, especially when Inga calls her out on her bad behavior, telling her that sewing is a sane way to canalize anger. Finally, Helga loses her paitence completely, and [[MoralEventHorizon frames Inga for theft]]...only to be surprised when the other kids [[WhatTheHellHero call her out]]. Inga is fired and has to return to her country. When Helga finds her, her guilt gets the better of her, and she confesses to the framing, only for Inga to tell her she knew it all the time. Helga is confused as to why she is getting off scot-free, until Inga explains that she is not: at the end of the day, Helga is nothing but an angry and sad kid, who damages those who care about her, and because of that she cannot be happy. The show ends with Helga in her unhappy home, sadly sewing something, realizing that her actions have cost her a happy home and someone who cares about her.

** It's explicitly mentioned once that there is only one "Arnold" in the school. {{Averted}}, however, by his cousin Arnie.

** It's explicitly mentioned once that there is only one "Arnold" in the school. {{Averted}}, however, by his cousin Arnie. It's subsequently revealed that Arnold is named after his maternal grandfather; since Arnold gets the football head from his mother's side of the family, and since Arnie himself also has a football head, it's a safe bet that Arnie is ''also'' named for their shared grandfather.

** There are actually three Roberts on the show: Big Bob Pataki, Mr. Robert Simmons, and Robert, a background extra student at P.S. 118.

Stinky refuses to sign the million dollar contract to be the spokes-person for Yahoo Soda and doesn't explain why, [[note]] namely, that Stinky heard some of the advertising managers making fun of him behind his back, hurting his feelings and making him rethink his position at Yahoo Soda [[/note]] giving his family and friends every reason to believe that he's refusing to sign a contract that would benefit himself and his family greatly for no reason.
