* FloatingClocks: The episode "Einstein's Adventure" has a pair of crooks steal the [=DeLorean=] as a getaway car after a robbing, and accidentally travel to 1790, Sydney, Australia. When that happens, this is what they see for a few seconds through the windshield.

* AdoptionDiss: The episode "Go Fly a Kite" has this kickstart the plot. Jules, who doesn't get along well with his younger brother, tells Verne that given that he doesn't resemble Doc, Clara, or Jules (especially in personality), it's clear he's adopted. This is an unusual case in that the insulting remark isn't true Verne is Doc and Clara's biological son but the idea obsesses him to the point that he runs away to look for his real father. Of course, Doc and Clara are very displeased with their eldest son. This may also count as Values Dissonance, given that the episode was aired in the 1990s; a hero implying there's something wrong with being adopted might go over much worse today than perhaps it did then.

** In "Roman Holiday," while visiting Rome, Marty accepts a race against Biff's Roman ancestor Bifficus after he calls Marty a chicken. This contradicts the huge lesson about common sense that Marty had learned after his showdown with Mad Dog Tannen in the third BTTF film.
*** Then again, compared to a gunfight, a chariot race would probably be a ''little'' less dangerous. Plus, Doc then told Marty he ''had'' to lose the race so history would go on as planned (see ChariotRace above), so who knows what might have happened if Marty hadn't accepted?

* TheDitz: The [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] version of Marty [=McFly=].

to:

* TheDitz: The [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] version of In the film trilogy, Marty [=McFly=].was a bit BookDumb and sometimes did stupid things because of his impulsiveness, but he was a quick-witted and capable assistant to Doc. Post {{Flanderization}}, he's much more of a dope and continually needs the Browns (including Jules and Verne) to help him out. Lampshaded in "The Money tree", where Jules laments that [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation his intelligence has always made it tough for him to make friends]]. Marty remarks that that's never been a problem for him, right around the time he hits himself in the face with a ball he's tossing around.

* MusicalExposition: During the ChristmasEpisode, Doc takes his family and Marty to Dickensian England to beat the heat wave that's currently roasting Hill Valley. While there, they encounter a group of Christmas carolers, who have a tendency to respond to any question asked with an improvised verse to the tune of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." Eventually, Marty tells them to stop it, and they do give the next explanation in speech, but it doesn't last.
