** In "A Whole New Ballgame", Mary Beth (with Kristy's help) tries to find herself a new boyfriend following her break-up with [[PutOnABus Vince]], but no one makes the cut. Her reasons for rejecting Kristy's top 3 choices are: The first guy has a chipped tooth, the second guy smells like ham (Kristy admits that she's bothered about that part as well), and the last guy... has a lame name. Kristy proceeds to call Mary Beth "picky" at this point.
-->'''Mary Beth''': I'm not picky. I just don't think any boy is good enough for me.



** In "Not a D'Amata," Vince, Michael, Teddy and Danny discuss taking Vince's little brother Nicky out camping to get him in touch with his "inner D'Amata" when he comes back more cultured. Michael talks about to doing guy stuff: "we'll build a fire! get dirty! eat bugs!" He loses the other guys with that last one, then suggests they'll bring pizzas instead.

** There's Coach Katowinski's "aw, geez," also counts as OnceAnEpisode since Dick Butkus uttered it often during his run on the show. With the exception of the season five finale "My Family," when he (and his daughter) say it in unision after being complemented by Kristy, Coach K usually says it whenever he experiences misfortune, is asked to talk about another character's relationship or sees something he wishes he hadn't.

** Coach Fuller starts out as just an upstanding former NBA player-turned-coach who taught his students valuable lessons in life and teamwork; by season two, he developed a periodic HairTriggerTemper when other characters did something comedically stupid or sometimes for the fun of it.

* ComicBookTime: Subverted in that the series has some characters graduate off-screen, with "Graduation on Three" centering on all of the characters graduating from Deering... but before then, it gets hazy. Even though it's established each season is set in a new school year, the characters' grade levels are never expicitly mentioned (although the ages of a couple of them are); against logic, Julie and Mary Beth stay at Deering for all six seasons (despite Mary Beth stating in "Mary Beth's Parents" that she is 17, and therefore should have graduated after season three at least). Even though, earlier episodes imply they're a couple of years short of college age. NBC didn't help matters any more by splitting season five into two separate seasons.

* DoubleMeaningTitle: The show's title, ''Hang Time'', is taken from a sports term (more commonly associated with football, but appliable to basketball as well) for the length of time that a ball spends in the air, however it can be interpreted as "the time one spends hanging out with friends".

-->''SavedByTheBell'' [[RecycledINSPACE WITH BASKETBALL!]]

More specifically, ''Hang Time'' was an American teen sitcom that ran from 1995 to 2000 on Creator/{{NBC}}'s Saturday morning SavedByTheBell-clone block, TNBC (its executive producer, Peter Engel, was responsible for 90% of the shows in the block, though he didn't get involved in ''Hang Time'' until its second season). Created by Troy Searer, Robert Tarlow (who went on to create the two-seasoner TNBC stablemate ''One World'') and Mark Fink (a former writer for ''SBTB''), the series centered the adventures of the Tornadoes, a basketball team of the fictional Deering High School, in the fictional Indianapolis suburb of Derring, Indiana. At the start of the series, Julie Connor moves from the big city to Deering and joins the varsity boy's basketball team, where she must adjust to culture shock as well as trying to fit in on with a team of all males.

* {{Expy}}: Kristy is essentially that of [[SavedByTheBell Kelly Kapowski]], if slightly skewed to account for the fact that she (unlike Kelly) experiences general mishaps. The two also are really bad at a particular thing (for Kelly, it's singing, though that was later retconned; for Kristy, it's basketball).

* IntercontinuityCrossover: Dustin Diamond appeared as [[SavedByTheBell Screech]] in the season four episode "The Hustlers". Diamond appears again in "At the Movies" two seasons later, using the same high-pitched voice that he began using for his character when he joined ''Saved by the Bell: The New Class," claiming that his real voice is much higher[[note]]Anyone who watched ''Saved by the Bell'' or its ''College Years'' spinoff knows that Diamond originally used a voice closer in pitch to his own, just affecting it with some cracking[[/note]]. The latter appearance retcons "Goodnight, Vince" and "Phenom Blues," which indicate that ''Saved by the Bell'' exists as a TV show within the ''Hang Time'' universe.[[note]]In addition, his appearance in "At the Movies" is the InUniverse result of Kristy's idea to premiere ''Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas'' at the theater she and Antonio are working at, however that film debuted as a TV movie on NBC in 1994, six years before the episode aired.[[/note]]

* CelebrityParadox: In the sixth season episode "At the Movies", Dustin Diamond appears as himself when Kristie arranges a screening of "Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas" at the local movie theater. The problem here is that a couple of crossovers with ''The New Class'' have already established that the two shows exist in the same continuity. Screech previously appeared in the third season episode "The Hustlers" and Mary Beth and Amy met Screech when they appeared in ''The New Class'' episode "The Kiss".

** In the fifth season episode "Tolerance", the writers used Mary Beth's speech about tolerance to acknowledge the existence of homosexuality. Something ''Saved by the Bell'' and ''California Dreams'' never had the guts to do.

* GothGirl: One-time character Syd in "Tolerance". Kristy is partnered with her on a biology project, and while working on it at a goth club called The Morgue (where Kristy comes dressed in a cheerleader uniform after coming from practice), learns that Syd became a grote (the episode's reference to goths) because it was the only group of people who didn't reject her. Kristy becomes friends with Syd, derides Mary Beth and Julie for demeaning them, and even starts briefly dressing like a grote[[note]]although the next scene shows that the black hair is a wig and the piercings are fake[[/note]]. Kristy and Syd both get beaten up by a couple of JerkJocks. The episode ends with AnAesop drop with Mary Beth acknowledging that being intolerant of goths is no different than discriminating any other class of people, with her and Julie apologizing to Kristy.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Season three's "Teen Mom" and season four's "My Family" involve characters who became mothers before graduating high school. In the former, Danny falls for a girl named Sarah, who keeps ditching him and backing out on dates, only to find out that she has a son; Danny even briefly considers marrying Sarah. In the latter, Coach Katowinski's 17-year-old daughter tells Mary Beth, Julie and Kristy that she had given birth to a child recently and hadn't told her dad about it, she eventually comes clean to him. In both cases, the main characters end up with the unwitting task of being the babysitters, with blunderous results.
