* The episode "The Story of Whomps" is about T.J. inventing a substitute swear word ("whomps") so he wouldn't have to use a real bad word ([[InformedObscenity which led to the school board thinking it was an actual swear]] until the head of the school board agreed with T.J. that it was just a substitute swear word and that anyone who thinks it's obscene has a dirty mind).



** Here's another one from the same episode
-->'''T.J.:''' Ol' Rusty was here when my big brother was in school!
-->'''Spinelli:''' Ol' Rusty was here when my mom was in school!
-->'''Mikey:''' Heck, Ol' Rusty was here when my great-uncle Mary was in school!
-->'''Vince:''' Your uncle ''Mary?''
-->'''Gretchen:''' Don't ask.
** So either Mikey's great-uncle was a male-to-female transsexual or he was given a girl's name and (for reasons unknown) decided not to change it.
*** This can also double as a ShoutOut to TheDarkIsRising - "Over Sea Under Stone" begins with the kids visiting their Great-Uncle Merry.



* "First Name Ashley" contains an obvious ShoutOut to ''Film/AClockworkOrange'', a movie notorious for its depictions of extreme violence (both sexual and non-sexual) and premiered with an X rating (which, back in the early 1970s, was the equivalent of the modern-day R and NC-17 rating and was not associated with pornography, even though most movies rated X in the late 1960s into the 1970s did have sexual content that was too strong for the PG rating[[note]]remember: the PG-13 rating didn't come along until the mid-1980s. Prior to that, the American movie ratings were G, PG, and X[[/note]]).

* In [[WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut the movie]], after Mrs. Detweiller freaks out about T.J. accidentally [[RunningIntoTheWindow running into the sliding glass door]], she tells him to wait while she leaves to get "the baby thermometer and the petroleum jelly". If you find her choice of words baffling: petroleum jelly is used as a lubricant for [[AssShove rectal thermometers]].

** While minor compared to most examples, there was also a fairly long cut of Finster starring at Hank's visable butt crack.
