* SpottingTheThread: There's a couple hints during "And Then There Was Shawn" that clue in that this is a dream Shawn's having:
** After expressing his knowledge of horror movies, Shawn comes to the conclusion that Mr. Feeny is the man responsible for the situation they are in, as to teach them a lesson. They then find Mr. Feeny in the hallway, dead from being stabbed in the back with scissors.[[note]]Not only is the dream centered around Shawn's self-loathing over him feeling he was responsible for Cory and Topanga breaking up, but Mr. Feeny was too obvious of a choice for the killer.[[/note]]
** Eric and Jack had no real reason to be at the school playing basketball, and just abruptly appear in the school.
** Why would Jennifer Love Fefferman be in a random high school with a murderer running around?

* CreatorBreakdown: [[{{In-universe}} The episode "Shallow Boy"]] involves Eric dating the aspiring singer/songwriter Corinna, whose songs are [[TastesLikeDiabetes saccharine]] and completely unappealing. When he dumps her, she immediately starts writing dark and angry songs clearly directed at him; ''these'' sell, and she becomes a huge success. After a while she meets with Eric, ostensibly to apologize, but he quickly realizes she's just run out of material. Refusing to give her any, he acts nice to Corinna and manages to revert her to mindless schlock mode, by singing the song "Tomorrow" from ''Annie'' with her. At the end of the episode, Eric gives an evil snicker once her cheerful album bombs. The character was a parody of Music/AlanisMorissette, who had a similar transformation. The episode even openly references Alanis.

*** ''Girl Meets World'' continues with trend with Eric, where they turn him into a flat-out weirdo who is the mayor of a town called St. Upidtown (aka Stupidtown) and wears a fake beard. Though he still shows signs of HiddenDepths.

* FourTemperamentEnsemble: the four main characters generally fit this schema, though [[CharacterizationMarchesOn it took them a couple of seasons to get there]] (except one of them took half a season): Alan and Cory (leukine), Amy (melancholic), Topanga (phlegmatic), Eric (sanguine, [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} and how!]]), and Shawn (choleric). Early on, Topanga was sanguine, Cory was melancholic, Amy was phlegmatic, and Eric was leukine.
** In later seasons, Cory gets unusually neurotic for a leukine character; the reason he remains so is because [[{{Flanderization}} everyone else gets wackier too]].
** The teachers are mostly neutral temperaments, but Mr. Feeny would be the most melancholic, Mr. Turner the most phlegmatic, and Eli Williams the most sanguine.
** The gang of bullies (counting both leader and temporary replacement): Harley Keiner (choleric), Frankie Stecchino (melancholic), Griff Hawkins (phlegmatic), and Joey Epstein (sanguine).

Added DiffLines:

* TwoWordsAddedEmphasis: In the episode "Honesty Night", Cory suggests to Topanga that they should pretend to be still estranged despite their recent reconciliation so Shawn can save the day and not feel left out. Topanga doesn't think of this as a good idea while Mr. Feeny sees this as a disaster in the making and decides to intervene, prompting the following exchange:
-->'''Mr. Feeny''': I have five words: Topanga is correct.
-->'''Cory''': That's only three.
-->'''Mr. Feeny''': You moron.
