* LaughTrack: This show, along with ''Series/NaturallySadie'' and ''PhilOfTheFuture'', doesn't have one, although goofy sound effects and guitar riffs are used to much the same effect.

** Ashley Leggat, who plays Casey, is a professionally-trained dancer, and the show emphasized this repeatedly in later seasons. The TV-movie ''Vacation with Derek'' even made a whole subplot out of this, casting ''[[SoYouThinkYouCanDance So You Think You Can Dance Canada]]'' winner Nico Archambault as her love interest.

* SayMyName: '''''[+DER-EK!!!+]''''' Casey isn't the only one who says it like that, either. In one episode, they [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] it by having the characters ''bet'' as to whether Derek can get everyone to say his name like that. [[spoiler:And yes, he wins.]] It's also become a very popular and simple drinking game, much like [[TheBobNewhartShow "Hi, Bob!"]]. The rules? Drink whenever anyone says "Derek".
