** In the earlier seasons, many of the returning characters referenced the series from the '80s. Joey and Caitlyn often bring up the catalyst for their big break-up in that show's series finale, Tessa Campinelli. More recently, Mr. Simpson consoles Eli when he finds Campbell's dead body after committing suicide by referencing the time in ''Series/DegrassiHigh'' when he discovered Claude's dead body.

* RealitySubtext: The trolling/Gamergate storyline in ''Next Class'' is partially inspired by an incident where Winston's actor Andre Kim was [[http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/12/03/andre-kim-degrassi-racist-tweets_n_6263064.html exposed for previous racist/sexist tweets and comments]]. Linda Schuyler even stated the potential to turn that scandal into a teachable moment.

* BreatherEpisode: "Take On Me", the {{W|holePlotReference}}PR [[TheBreakfastClub Breakfast Club episode]], could be thought of as this, considering it sits right in between Manny [[spoiler: getting an abortion]], and Terri [[spoiler: suffering a life threatening-coma inducing injury (which winds up in her leaving the show)]]. The rest of Season 3 after this (besides the aforementioned Terri episode) may be this too, considering how dark the first half of the fourth season is.
