** It also happens to Mr. Omar, who was dying [[spoiler:or, so he thought but it was revealed the diagnosis was reversed with a dying patient's]] during "Everybody Hates Backtalk". It's because of that, he decided to say whatever was on his mind, consequences be damned... he even called his own landlord a "bald-headed, penny-pinching skinflint", which is unquestionably true. Later, when he found out the truth, Mr. Omar came to beg for his apartment back, as well as Julius's forgiveness and naturally, those words did come back to bite him in the ass. Julius did give Omar back his apartment, but not before letting Mr. Omar know that the next time he decided to be {{Brutally Honest}} and insult other people, using impending death as an excuse for that action, to be sure that he was dying.

** Chris employed this in "Everybody Hates Being Cool". It was here that Chris was faced with two options: either he could be known as cool for being a lookout for the "cool kids", i.e. the juvenile delinquents that loiter around the arcade, and risk being named and imprisoned as an accessory to them before/during/after the fact, or he could forever be known as the nerdy kid, make like a banana and split. Chris chose to save his own hide and fled the scene of the crime when the cops showed up; a wise option, indeed. Had it not been for Greg's dissuasion and concern, however, Chris would have likely gone along with the plan and gotten into trouble, ergo that can be a {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}} for Chris's cowardly friend as Greg isn't the type to go to a bad part of town by himself.

* PlotHole: There is a huge timeline plot hole: the entire series is stated to cover five years of Chris's life (series premiere is in 1982 and series finale is in 1987). However, Chris passes 4 years at school (3 in Corleone and 1 in Tattaglia).
** The mistake can be traced back to the season 2 premiere, in which Chris apparently starts the new school year in 1984 despite season one taking place during the 1982-1983 school year. This mistake continues throughout the rest of the series: season 2 takes place from 1984-1985, season 3 from 1985-1986, and season 4 from 1986-1987.

* CaptainObvious: In "Everybody Hates Doc's", after Chris tells Greg that Doc plays chess in the park on weekend, Greg suggests that Chris should get Doc's girlfriend, Stacy, to go with him as a means to get rid of her as Chris works only on the weekend at that point in time due to being the manager of the football team. Greg doesn't tell Chris ''how'' to get her to go to the park with Doc, however.
