** In "Stefan King," As part of the ''Literature/Misery'' WholePlotReference, Adam begs Beverly not to break his ankles, referencing one of the most famous scenes in the movie. However, that scene replaced a different scene in the original novel, where Annie cuts off Paul's foot instead. The novel was released in 1987, while the film was not out until November of 1990.

** The pilot had a gimmick of translating Murray's thoughts with onscreen subtitles, showing that me meant his rants and insults with love. This was heavily featured in the advertisments leading up to the show's premiere. It was gone by the second episode.

** The episode "The Darryl Dawkins Dance" revolves around Adam watching ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' in the cinema, and the movie was released in 1986, but in the same episode a Fortress Maximus figure is shown in Adam's Transformers collection, which was released only one year later, in 1987.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Some plots points are occasionally criticized as being too outlandish or goofy even for a sitcom. Adam F. Goldberg counters such criticism by saying that not only did such things happen to him in his childhood, he has video evidence to back it up.

* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: The Goldbergs get into some wild hijinks (like trying to take a mattress home, untied, on the roof of their car as Erica and Barry hang out the windows to hold it down while Adam desperately holds onto his siblings from inside) and the Narrator will occasionally interject to let the audience know these things ''really'' happened to the family.

* MsFanservice: Erica, full stop, in "Who Are You Going to Telephone?" The odd part is that she was dressed as Jane Goodall for her Halloween costume, though Goodall never bared any midriff. In fact, if her shirt was plaid and the shorts were denim, she would have been more believable as [[TheDukesOfHazzard Daisy Duke]].
