* CluelessAesop: In "Jessie's Song", Jessie becomes addicted to simple over-the-counter caffeine pills. This is fairly realistic, as caffeine ''is'' indeed addictive. However, while the withdrawal is minor and usually limited to headaches and irritability, the show treats her reaction as if she were taking cocaine, and she is shown developing a dire, uncontrollable, terrifying craving for what is essentially just ''Starbucks in pill form''. It's clear that the writers wanted to include a drug episode, but didn't want any of the characters using ''actual'' illegal substances, and the overall message kind of falls flat given the substance in question.

* InsaneTrollLogic: In ''The College Years'', Zack and Slater are talking of possibly cheating on a test. Slater says that if he fails the test, he could fail the course which would get him kicked off the wrestling team which means they'll lose meets which means they lose boosters and donors which could cause the entire college to collapse.
-->'''Slater''': Don't you see, Zack? I ''have'' to cheat! To save the college!
-->'''Zack''': That was pretty good. All I had was, my dad would yell at me.

* TheArtifact: Leslie in ''The College Years''. She's set up in the first episode for a WillTheyOrWontThey storyline with Zack. Then in the second episode, Kelly rejoins the gang. A few episodes play with Zack pursuing both of them, but the writers soon settle on him focusing on getting back together with Kelly. Afterwards, Leslie is still around, but she ends up with very little to do for the rest of the season.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Zack and Slater were going to be bitter rivals for Kelly's affections, as seen in initial episodes. However, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez were good friends on set, and their natural chemistry led to the writers turning the two of them into best friends. Slater's eventual romance with Jessie likely stemmed from this.
** The infamous Tori episodes in Season 4. The network ordered an additional set of episodes after they had wrapped, but Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen had other commitments. Thus Leanna Creel was cast as a replacement character called Tori.
