* 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.

** A crossover of sorts when ''The New Class'' gang visited the school from ''USA High'' (a.k.a. ''Saved by the Bell in Europe on the Creator/USANetwork!'') in the episode "Foreign Behavior". None of the characters from ''USA High'' actually appeared in the episode, however.

-->'''Maria''': Yeah, I know Ryan is good-looking, but I went to Valley with him, and he's ''always'' up to something.
-->'''Ryan''': (indignant) How can she say that?! (Beat) I need more volume. (adjusts the volume to hear better)

The show began life as a [[Film/TheParentTrap Hayley Mills]] vehicle titled ''Good Morning, Miss Bliss'' (1988-1989), which centered around a junior high school teacher named Miss Bliss as she dealt with her quirky students, among them Zack Morris. Though an NBC pilot, the network rejected it and the Creator/DisneyChannel picked it up instead. It was not a success, but the series found its way back to NBC and was given a drastic [[ReTool retool]]: focus was shifted to the student body, and only Zack, Samuel "Screech" Powers, Lisa Turtle, and Mr. Belding made the transition. The name of the school also changed from John F. Kennedy Junior High to Bayside High, but this is possibly less of a mystery than the school's unexplained move from Indiana to California. The new show, now titled ''Saved by the Bell'', [[AscendedExtra was led by Zack]] and it is ''this'' version that is the one most viewers are familiar with.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Screech suffers from this in an episode of ''The New Class''. To recap: Mr. Belding is planning to give a surprise birthday to Screech, but Screech keeps nosing in for any trace of a birthday celebration. When he gets too prematurely close to finding out, the students organizing the birthday party tell him that said party is for Mr. Belding instead, prompting an outraged Screech to volunteer to "help" -- when, in truth, he's out for revenge for Mr. Belding's neglect for his birthday celebration (or so he thinks) -- by ordering a cake from "Mr. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Pie In The Face]]". When the truth is revealed to Screech near the end of the selfsame episode, he's happy about it -- except he forgets to cancel his order from Mr. PieInTheFace amidst all the joy. The episode ends when the birthday cake delivery guy shows up and asks for the birthday boy and Screech claims himself as such... *splat*

* NotSoInnocentWhistle: At the start of the fourth season of ''The New Class'', [[CaptainCrash a teacher reports to Mr. Belding that she bumped into his car while trying to park at her own spot]]. Once she leaves, Mr. Belding demands to know who assigned her spot next to his. He's speaking to no one in particular, but Screech, upon hearing Mr. Belding's demand, whistles to himself while looking sheepishly away, which, due to his close proximity to Mr. Belding, serves only to tip himself off.
