Added DiffLines:

* In "Egg Story," Harold and Rhonda have an exchange about a NoodleIncident that sounds like it could be very, ''very'' dirty:
-->'''Harold''': Aw, come on, Rhonda, you know you like me!
-->'''Rhonda''': Where in the world would you get a ridiculous idea like that?
-->'''Harold''': Remember that time at the Cheese Festival when you jumped--
-->'''Rhonda''': ''(clamping down on Harold's mouth)'' I told you ''never'' to mention that night--''ever'' again.
** What makes it better is that it's a ContinuityNod: in an early episode, Rhonda is seen dragging Harold onto a ride--specifically, the Tunnel of Love. What the hell did they do in there?

** Part of Grandpa's story involves him staying the night at a farmhouse, with three beautiful french women. The oldest one, Monique, visits him in the night in a [[VaporWear figure flattering diaphanous dress]], to tell Phil that the war has made her feel scared and lonely...Gerald's father then urges him to skip over this part of the story, since it was clearly headed in an erotic direction. Looking at Arnold and Gerald's reactions to the interjection, it seems like they wanted to hear it. When Phil resumes the story, he recalls that he woke up the next morning "[[DidYouJustHaveSex feeling like a million bucks]]."

*** She does a similar thing in other episodes as well, such as when Arnold hugs her in "Arnold's Hat." The implication is clear.

* Mr. Simmons and his sexuality. It's not hidden, but it's never explicitly mentioned either. [[StraightGay Since Simmons acts like a normal man most of the time]], the hints about his sexuality tend to stick out. WordOfGod has confirmed that he is indeed gay. (Plus, the character's voice actor, Dan Butler, is himself openly gay.)
** The ThanksgivingEpisode even features his boyfriend/life partner butting heads with his mother (who spends most of her time not-so-subtly urging Mr. Simmons to date a female friend).
-->'''Pearl''': I didn't know Peter was coming.
-->'''Peter''': There's a lot of things you don't know.
** There are a few hints that Eugene and Principal Wartz are gay too.



* Arnold's grandpa's nickname is one of these in a roundabout way. His nickname is Steely Phil which to some may be a ParentalBonus play on the band and the sex toy known as a Steely Dan.

* Mr. Simmons and his sexuality. It's not hidden, even though he's very obviously gay, [[StraightGay yet not stereotypically so]] or even mentioned. WordOfGod has confirmed this and the character's voice actor, Dan Butler, is himself openly gay.
** The Thanksgiving episode even gives us what is very obviously his boyfriend/life partner butting heads with his mother (who spends most of her time not-so-subtly urging Mr. Simmons to date a female friend).

* '''Miriam's alcoholism.''' Even WordOfGod says that she's an alcoholic, but the Nickelodeon censors told Craig Bartlett and the writers that they couldn't outright say it, so what do they do? Have her as a depressed, narcoleptic smoothie addict (never mind that some alcoholic drinks do exist as smoothies -- piña coladas, hurricanes, daiquiris, etc). Also if you pay close attention you'll notice that one of her ingredients for a smoothie is Tabasco sauce. There are even hints that she was busted for at least one DUI. One episode has Arnold ask Helga "when did she [Miriam] get her license back?" and another has Bob casually remark that she's supposed to start community service that morning.
** There are a few episodes where, if you listen closely, you can hear ice cubes rattling inside Miriam's usual cup of coffee.

** "Arnold Visits Arnie" gives us Lulu, the BizarroUniverse version of Lila, who keeps trying to seduce Arnold (later it turns out [[spoiler:that it's AllJustADream]]). At one point she propositions him for a private TwoPersonPoolParty at night. She also stands behind him while he reaches for a high shelf in a store, and... tickles his tummy. Innocent, yes, but what else can you imagine a girl possibly reaching for when she's standing in that position behind a guy? Arnold even hangs a lampshade on it when she tries to give him a kiss:
-->'''Arnold:''' But you're Arnie's girlfriend! ... and we're 9!

** Big Bob calls out the villain for "shafting" him in their deal. No wonder the movie got a PG.

** For anyone who doesn't know, "Woodstock" was a 1969 music festival with more drugs than music.

Have her as a depressed, narcoleptic smoothie addict (never mind that some alcoholic drinks do exist as smoothies -- piña coladas, hurricanes, daiquiris, etc). Also if you pay close enough attention when she is grabbing ingredients for a smoothie she grabs Tabasco sauce. There are even hints that she was busted for at least one DUI. One episode has the kids shocked that she apparently got her driver's license back and another has Bob casually remark that she's supposed to start community service that morning.

** In the same episode, she ends up watching Arnold undress and then passes out with a very happy face. Were the censors asleep when approving this episode!?

** This is made even more inappropiate when you remember the fact Arnold's nine. Most kids don't discover masturbation until they're about 12.

* In "Helga's Parrot", Helga recited one of her obsessive love poems in the presence of a parrot, who then flew off and almost repeated it to Arnold. One part of the poem was: "Arnold, you make my girlhood tremble, my senses all go wacky." (This one in particular is one of the most well-known adult jokes of the series.)

*** In other words, this particular poem pretty much had Helga flat-out state that Arnold made her horny. No wonder she was especially ferocious when going after the parrot.
