* AFoolAndHisNewMoneyAreSoonParted: Sam and Mxa acquire massively inflating amounts of money that they casually drop on Bosco for 'inventions' that experience has already shown will be a lame household item. A billion dollars for a snot rag? Sure, here you go!

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: An easily missed but nifty example in "Chariot of the Dogs." In order to progress, you have to [[spoiler: get a patent for the original Stinky's Tar Pit Molasses Cake so that his granddaughter can't use it [[LethalChef as a super-adhesive]], which T-H-E-M use in their spaceship, and create a mega-corporation from it.]] However, a player with a sharp memory will note that the cake played a [[EarlyBirdCameo small but essential]] role in the previous game by [[spoiler: [[ItMakesSenseInContext helping them catch Jesse James' reanimated hand, which you needed as part of a set to Jurgen's monster in order to help Sybil fall for him and then subsequently realize she really loves Lincoln's Head, so Sam & Max can steal her]] ArtifactOfDoom [[ItMakesSenseInContext and use it to reclaim their souls.]]]] If the player is wondering about this detail and why the heroes aren't [[spoiler: soulless,]] you can go back to the future and ask Future Max about it: turns out [[spoiler: Stinky still made her mega corporation by selling zombie hand repellent,]] which is presumably how the two were able to solve the case in the new time stream.

Over the course of six episodes (the final one released in May of 2007), our heroes matched wits with former child stars, a bossy talk show host, the Toy Mafia, the U.S. government, the Internet, and a cult leader in order to foil a series of mass-hypnosis plots. ''Sam and Max: Season 2'' (running from November 2007 to April 2008) had the Freelance Police facing demonic possession in Santa's workshop, the Bermuda Triangle, a Goth vampire and his army of club-hopping zombies, a sinister cabal known only as T-H-E-M, and the forces of Hell. The complete Season 1 for Wii was released in 2008. In 2009, Telltale announced that Seasons 1 and 2 would be on UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade, under different names (''Sam and Max Save the World'' and ''Sam and Max Beyond Time and Space'', respectively). Most other places that sell the games online, like Steam and Telltale's official site, have switched to those names, as well.

** Parodied hilariously in "Night of the Raving Dead" with an episode of ''Midtown Cowboys'' that's not much more than a glorified commercial.
** Also a part of a puzzle in "Situation Comedy"; Sam and Max have to improvise an episode for ''Midtown Cowboys'' that has to include Max saying the tagline for the network's sponsor.

** Examining the Drum in the office in "Chariots of the Dogs" will have Sam remark "Remember Easter Island? Yeah, me either.". This would be innocuous, if not for the fans of the series receiving Moai Better Blues (the episode the Drum originated from) less warmly than the critics.
* ShootYourMate: Played more or less straight in "The Mole, the Mob, and the Meatball", when Sam is ordered to shoot Max to test whether or not he's been hypnotized. In "Situation: Comedy", Max is supposed to ''pretend'' to shoot Sam as part of a television audition, but being Max he just pulls out a real gun and fires (luckily, Sam's hat has been made bulletproof).
