** The 13 year old girl (you read that right) introducing her college-age boyfriend to her parents as "The boy who molested me last month. We HAVE to get married!" She just sounds so happy!

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Dave Jennings: CoolTeacher and a liberating figure much needed in a stuffy environment or a bad, toxic influence without boundaries?

* CrossesTheLineTwice:
** Otter pretending to be the ex-boyfriend of a dead coed in order to get grief/sympathy sex from her roommate.
** Pinto has a passed out girl lying in bed directly in front of him, and is considering doing something... ''unsavory'' to her while she's unconscious. Cue the most bizarrely-placed GoodAngelBadAngel gag ever, played out ''exactly'' the way it would be in a Donald Duck cartoon.



** The GoodAngelBadAngel scene where Pinto wonders whether he should have sex with the unconscious, teenaged Clorette has become ''extremely'' cringeworthy since rape, both among teenagers and in colleges, is an even bigger concern.

Then again, some viewers think the cultural attitudes toward rape in college campuses makes the joke ''funnier,'' as it CrossesTheLineTwice.

** Dean Wormer gloating about how he's notified the Deltas' local draft boards about their expulsion. As pointed out above under Designated Villain, he's completely justified in wanting the Deltas off his campus, but this makes it clear that he doesn't just want them off his campus, he wants them ''dead''.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: The film was the ambitious foray of the ''National Lampoon'' magazine into silver-screen entertainment. Universal execs politely allowed the filmmakers to go wild in their own special way, quietly hoping ''Animal House'' wouldn't damage the company's checkbooks. Creator/DonaldSutherland famously chose several thousand dollars in payment over a percentage of the box-office gross, expecting the film to be a bomb and be quickly forgotten. However, ''Animal House''[='=]s charmingly dark and hard-hitting observations on college life, as well as its undeniably quirky brand of vulgar humor, was so refreshing to moviegoers in the late 70s that the film recouped its $2 million budget 50 times over. Sutherland, as you might imagine, was not pleased, and it probably explains why he never appeared in any interviews or in ''Where Are They Now?: A Delta Alumni Update'', a direct-to-DVD short which suggested the film had been a documentary and Creator/JohnLandis was catching up with some of the cast (played by their original actors, except for Creator/JohnBelushi, who died in 1982, though it's implied that his character lives on as former U.S. President UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush).

** In the original WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, it's stated that Bluto became a United States Senator. While John Belushi never did get into politics, the idea of a ''Saturday Night Live'' cast member becoming a politician is now a reality thanks to Al Franken, who was a writer and feature player for ''SNL'' during the first five years [and later from 1985 to 1995, making Franken the longest-running feature player who was never promoted to repertory cast member], which was the same time that John Belushi was a cast member

* HilarityEnsues: Virtually the entire premise of the movie is about members of a college fraternity partying and getting away with anything and everything, things that would never be allowed (or, at the very least, severely curbed instantly) at any college in the United States. In the real world, Faber College would long ago have revoked Delta Tau Chi's charter, all the members of said fraternity would likely be expelled (or, at the very least, put on probation) and Pinto would be likely be sent to prison and, had it existed in 1962, the time in which the movie was set, on the sex offender registry forever for having sex with the 13-year-old Clorette [=DePasto=] (and come on, he ''knew'' how old she was!). Also, because of their reputations, none of the Delta's students would ever be able to enroll in any other place of higher education anywhere--not even a community college or a college whose own academic program is so poor that it's last hair strand is being held up by one tiny microcell--and they would be living life as bums, hanging out in bars or pool halls and unable to find work even pushing broom in the bathrooms of the sewer plant, if not in prison trying to avoid being raped by Bubba.
