* CrossesTheLineTwice: ''Constantly.'' Particularly in the episode "I'm Going to Sweatland", when both Peg and Marcy think that a sweat stain of Al's looks like Music/ElvisPresley, this is Al's response:
-->"You wanna see Elvis? Well, here's Elvis: ''*pulls his collar up, sticks out his stomach and puffs out his cheeks pretending to be fat and then mimes falling backwards dead of a heart attack.*'' Now that we've all seen him and felt his presence, let's honor him by doing he really loved to do; [[BigEater eat dinner!]]"
** Then later on after the Elvis fans are at the Bundy house:
-->" Why is it that Elvis is dead and I'm the one in Hell?"

** Also, in the episode "Her Cups Runneth Over"[[note]]i.e., the episode that got Terry Rakolta riled up [[/note]] has Steve ogling a mannequin dressed in a leather mini-skirt and match pasties, which he then begins to poke at. Al wanders over, comments to him "Steve, aren't you ashamed of yourself?" for doing it, which makes him reply back, "Oh, come on, Al; she was asking for it! Look at the way she's dressed!"

* RewatchBonus: In the episode "The Egg and I", [[note]] The first of four episodes in the series where Marcy's first husband, Steve Rhoades, played by David Garrison, comes back for a cameo[[/note]] Steve casually insults Jefferson by calling him "little nose" to which Jefferson then covers his nose with his hand and bows his head in embarrassment. This may even suggest as to why Marcy still refers to [[CleopatraNose her first husband]] as [[BiggerIsBetterInBed the best she ever had]] and wants to be buried next to ''him'' instead of her current husband when she dies.[[note]] So the urban legend goes, a man with a larger nose (such as Steve possesses) is said to have his [[GagPenis other parts]] be in perfect proportion to it.[[/note]]

** The show's obviously [[CannedLaughter canned studio audience.]] It's so infamous that, to this day, that even in shows (i.e. talk shows) that have a studio audience that's shown on screen, someone will complain how the studio audience in that show sounds fake.

** Being considered either this or HilariousInHindsight (depending on your sense of humor), the "I Want My Psycho Dad" episode had Bud mentioning a fictional show called ''Series/SavedByTheBell: The Prison Years''. About a decade later, Screech's actor, Dustin Diamond, was sent to jail for a few months for stabbing a man.
