** "A Christmas Story" confirms that the Goldbergs celebrate Hanukkah. Their neighbours the Kremps are awkwardly unsure about whether inviting a neighbouring family of a clearly different cultural background to ''Christmas'' celebrations is giving offence.
--> Hello...Goldbergs! We've been expecting you! Happy Chris... Winter Fest.... Yule....

* GymClassHell: [[SadistTeacher Mr Mellor]] is an interesting example. Played straight when putting Adam through torment and deliberately getting his name wrog as "Goldfarb" - but he shows interesting aversions, such as genuinely trying to give pastoral guidance to Adam even when it inconveniences him, and displaying well-intended ineptitude when genuinely listening to his pupils' criticisms of the delivery of PE teaching at their school, and periodically allowing them to try to improve the classes. If only to demonstrate that his way is better.

Added DiffLines:

* RealitySubtext: In season four, Adam repeatedly asks people to refer to him as Adam F Goldberg in order to avoid being confused with another kid at school named Adam Goldberg. While it works as a joke within the context of the show, the real reason for this is to be a light-hearted TakeThat to real-life actor Adam Goldberg, who has angrily complained about being confused with the shows similarly named creator.

** Similarly, Barry often injects himself into conversations with the line: "You've come to the right place." when in fact nobody asked for his help.
