** When [[{{Yandere}} Elena]] tries to convinces Ben to get together with her by using VoluntaryShapeshifting to adapt herself to his wish, Ben tries to demonstrate how unhealthy such a relationship would be, using Gwen's relationship with Kevin as an exemple. [[KissingCousins Elena replies by offering to be like Gwen]].
** Too Hot to Handle is all about P'andor, a radioactive alien, trying to shed his only clothing and go on a nudist rampage across Bellwood, as well the heroes' attempts to redress said alien. Tragically, the Nightmare Fuel threat of hundreds of thousands of people being irradiated makes it impossible to truly find this funny.
