* While chasing the Library Kid after she goes Recess crazy, they try reading out of library books, becoming engrossed in them as they read, leading to this exchange after Spinelli reads from an Eastern European war novel.
-->'''Gretchen:''' Come on - she's getting away!
-->'''Spinelli:''' Just a sec - this is getting ''gorey''!

* 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]].
