* AttemptedRape and DateRapeAverted: In season six's "Secrets and Lies," Mary Beth is nearly mauled by a guy named Brett while in a back room at a concert at a nightclub. She manages to get away on her own (threatening to bash him with a guitar), while Brett threatens to get Deering kicked out of the tournament as Mary Beth and her friends used fake IDs (that he sold them) to get into the club. Antonio and Michael confront Brett when Mary Beth, Kristy and Julie inform them about what happened, but Mary Beth and Coach Katowinski step in before things get out of hand and have Brett arrested.

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: In "Fake ID-ology," the gang uses fake IDs to sneak into an over 18 club, where they end up getting drunk and the boys... and Julie... get into a bar fight. Coach Fuller benches all of the main characters, which results in them telling an averted RashomonStyle story about [[HowWeGotHere how they got into the mess]].

* SkewedPriorities: When Rico goes to coach Katowinski late in the episode "The Tall And The Short Of It" after his fallout with his date because of [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller his self-conscious concern over his date being much taller than he]], coach Katowinski's first response, upon learning that Rico's date is, in Rico's own words, "Shaq tall", is to ask Rico: "Can she shoot?" [[WhatTheHellHero Rico gives him a "What the Hell?" look in return.]]

* TheWindyCity: Not in regards to the show's setting, which is in a state that borders Illinois, but in that both Julie and Vince are both established to be from Chicago. Vince is the only one of the two that has a "Chic-ah-go accent".

** 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".

* {{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".

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".
