* TheOtherDarrin: They had to replace Jerri's brother in TheMovie because he "looked like a lumberjack". Also Jerri's dad bares no resemblance to his actor in the show whatsoever.



* ThrowItIn: "I stole the TV."
** Script typos such as "I'll be back in a shortly" and "This was this one time..."



* YouLookFamiliar: Virginia Williams played four different characters throughout the series. It would seem at first that Delores Duffy did this, too, playing the school secretary Iris Puffybush, a nurse, and the owner of an artificial flower factory in various episodes, but it looks like she's really supposed to be all those things at the same time.

* DawsonCasting: Absolutely no effort is made to have any of the actors playing "high-school age" characters look like they're anywhere close to their supposed ages.

* {{Egopolis}}: Flatpoint High is a high school rather than a city, but count the sheer number of images of Principal Blackman in the building, not even counting the loudspeakers coming out of posters of him with flashing eyes
