* GravityIsOnlyATheory: Max claims not to believe in the existence of magnetism, insisting it's 'only a theory'.
-->'''Max''': "There's just one thing ''I'' believe in!" *pulls out his Luger. His Luger is immediately pulled to the strongly magnetic North Pole* "Okay, make that ''two'' things."

* AccidentalMisnaming:
** A running gag is how Girl Stinky never addresses Sam and Max by their names, but picks a random moniker every time. She remembers their names just fine; [[MaliciousMisnaming it is her way of saying she just doesn't care]].
-->'''Max:''' ''Barnaby'' and ''Jug-Jug?!'' ...you're not even ''trying'' with the names anymore, are you?
** If you use psychic ventriloquism on her in Episode 304, Max tries to imitate her, but acknowledges that it's harder to come up with those names than it looks.

* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cy7FphT8JI "The Office"]]. Admittedly it's for a location rather than a character, but otherwise it fits the bill perfectly. It even has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxDcgUjEgF0 low-bittage]], space-age, and even Ancient Egyptian remixes, heard in Episodes 105, 204 and 303 respectively. Parts of it sneak into the various themes in Season 3 despite Sam and Max spending nearly all of it unable to get into the Office, and a rearrangement of "The Office" is ultimately the last tune in the game to close out the entire series, possibly implying it's become a BootstrappedTheme of sorts.

** Partway through Season 1, Sam has to win a "Whack A Rat" arcade machine to progress (which the duo later takes as a souvenir), just like in SamAndMaxHitTheRoad. Once again, it takes twenty hits to win.

** Later played straight with passwords that are just as bad in later episodes. In "Reality 2.0", Sam & Max have to find the password to Bosco's. They soon find out the password is "Bosco".

* 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.
