* StrikeEpisode: There was an episode where Corey and Shawn go on strike after being given a test when they were promised not to be tested on the material (appropriately enough, Literature/TheGrapesOfWrath). To the teacher's credit, he did admit it was clear the learned a lot from the book.

** In the opening scene of season two's "Wake Up, Little Cory", virtually the entire class is falling asleep as Mr. Turner is teaching a lesson on the Shakespeare play ''MuchAdoAboutNothing''. Ironically as Mr. Turner states that Shakespeare's plays have continued to keep people "glued to their seats" today, Shawn promptly falls out of his chair, still asleep. Cory who like the rest of the class, was awakened by the event then proceeds to (while still sitting in his chair) stomp Shawn awake with his right foot, Shawn then says to Mr. Turner "these chairs really aren't the best for sleeping".

* RadioContest: Shawn enters one to get SuperBowl tickets. However, he finds out the contest involves standing on a billboard platform for the longest amount of time, in the middle of the Philadelphia winter. And one of contestants is an eskimo.

* RadioContest: Shawn enters one to get SuperBowl UsefulNotes/SuperBowl tickets. However, he finds out the contest involves standing on a billboard platform for the longest amount of time, in the middle of the Philadelphia winter. And one of contestants is an eskimo.



* WrongGenreSavvy: In "The Eskimo", Mr. Feeny gives Shawn the goal of acquiring two SuperBowl tickets and assigns Cory and Topanga to tag along with him; Topanga not to interfere and Cory to help them both. Shawn enters a contest with tickets on the line involving sitting on a billboard balcony on a freezing winter day... until it's only himself and the eskimo, eating ice cream and only there because he's on vacation for the summer. He gives up and the trio head back to Mr. Feeny to report, thinking they've learned the lesson: That sometimes, life will throw insurmountable obstacles at you, so you should learn to take things more seriously. Mr. Feeny is less than pleased. His ''real'' lesson was that sometimes life throws insurmountable obstacles at you, so you better man up and overcome them anyway! Now get your asses back out there and get those tickets! Shawn takes this as a self-realization moment when he remarks that everything difficult he's ever come across, he's folded. So he [[WalkingTheEarth heads out by himself]] to find the tickets and meet the goal. Cory and Topanga don't hear back from him in weeks... until they are watching the SuperBowl and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming see Shawn in the front row on the 50-yard-line holding up a sign saying, "HEY FEENEY! NOTHING'S IMPOSSIBLE"]].

*** In a similar vein, Mr. Feeny being killed immediately after everyone comes to the conclusion that he's the killer makes sense: it was ''too obvious''.

* CelebrityLie: In "Fraternity Row", Eric and Jack form a fraternity named "Magnum Pi". When the dean of the fictional Pennbrook College asks who their famous alums are, the two scramble for names and come up with "Bernie Kopell and Ted Lange" (of TheLoveBoat fame). Jack is somehow actually able to get Bernie Kopell and Ted Lange to appear at a fraternity party (presumably because his father has connections), but they still fail to impress the dean.

** In the episode "On the Air", after Eric comes up with a stupid plan he says "There's a little voice inside my head, you know what it's saying?", and his mom replies "[[ForrestGump Life is like a box of chocolates?]]", to which Eric just says "Huh?".
