* "Eye of the Beholder" shows an unmarried Fox and Xanatos living under the same roof (In a Disney show, of all places.) Given their previous behavior with each other, you CAN'T think that Xanatos ISN'T tapping that.
** [[WordOfGod Greg Weisman's timeline]] (and Alex's age in the comics) confirms that Alexander was conceived later on the same night David proposed.
** This one seems to have passed muster with the MoralGuardians on an inverse corollary to the principle that GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: good people wait until they're married to have sex, but Fox and Xanatos are presented to us as villains (bad people), so ''of course'' they don't restrain themselves. No impressionable young minds are harmed by the viewing of this episode, therefore.
** Then in "Vows," the subsequent episode, after the bride-to-be Fox tells Xanatos that she's about to "get changed for tonight," Xanatos watches her leave... with his eyes [[MaleGaze fixed squarely on her butt]]. The smirk on his face makes his inner thoughts quite readable.

** The question of ethics here is a little more complicated than that: in addition to fulfilling the escape clause being well beyond his means, the Magus mentions that there ''was'' a counter-spell in his book, but that the page containing it had been destroyed. If someone discovered and wrote down that counter-spell before, there was always a slight possibility someone might rediscover it later and use it to revive the gargoyles. What Goliath was doing is more akin to cryogenically freezing oneself with nothing but the very slenderest of hopes of being safely thawed out and revived someday; still very ethically questionable, but not quite the same as suicide.

* In the first story of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Goliath asks to be turned to stone with the same spell that the Magus cast on his surviving clan. Since the escape clause of the spell is the seemingly impossible "Until the castle rises above the clouds", what he is requesting is basically assisted suicide. The fact that the story jumps ahead 1000 years to see David Xanatos fulfill that condition and release them hides that fact.

** Also from "The Price" is Hudson's line "You mean to boil me in that oversized chamber pot?" For those who don't get it, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome He just called a powerful magical artifact a piss pot.]]

* In "The Reckoning", Fang jokes, "How many gargoyles does it take to screw in a lightbulb?" While it reads innocently enough (and became the subject of a contest on "Ask Greg"), [[Creator/JimBelushi]]'s delivery and inflection make it clear he's telling the "dirty joke" version.

* In "Sanctuary" Thailog leers at Angela. Considering the fact Angela is essentially his sister, this would come across as incestuous if Thailog was aware of his relation to Angela.

* It is not used as an expletive (but, all the same, the word isn't allowed on children's television), but Xanatos says in "Awakening, Part Two," "Pay a man enough, and he'll walk barefoot into Hell." The line ''was'' edited out when the episode was put into VHS release, but the DVD version has the line uncut and uncensored.
* In "Deadly Force," after Broadway accidentally shoots Elisa, we subsequently see Elisa unconscious and laying in a puddle of her own blood. The radar actually caught up to this episode and pulled it from rotation for a while, but they later re-aired it, albeit after [[BloodlessCarnage digitally removing Elisa's blood]].
