** Kelly in the whole Jeff-arc. Basically she dumps Zack for a guy about 3 years her senior. And when everyone is rightfully mad at her, we're supposed to sympathize with her. Especially after Zack does the [[SarcasmMode heinous]] act of, dancing to song he and Kelly danced to with another girl at The Max (which may have been a little rude but nowhere near as horrible as it was treated). Then comes Fake IDs when Zack tells Kelly he saw Jeff with another girl, Kelly yells at him for supposedly lying despite Zack having over his jealousy by that point. When Kelly catches Jeff in the act, we're supposed to see him as a cheating dog, despite him doing exactly when she did to Zack. In fact, Jeff even brings up the valid point he and Kelly were never going steady, so it can be argued what Kelly did to Zack was even worse than what Jeff did to her.

** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic once advanced the theory that [[Film/{{Showgirls}} Nomi Malone]] is [[ActorAllusion actually Jessie after she grew up]] and never fully got over her caffeine-fueled breakdown.

* CluelessAesop: In one episode, Jessie becomes addicted to simple over-the-counter caffeine pills. This is fairly realistic, as caffeine ''is'' indeed addictive. However, while the withdrawal is minor and usually limited to headaches and irritability, the show treats her reaction as if she were taking cocaine, and she is shown developing a dire, uncontrollable, terrifying craving for what is essentially just ''Starbucks in pill form.'' It's clear that the writers wanted to include a drug episode, but didn't want any of the characters using ''actual'' illegal substances, and the overall message kind of falls flat given the substance in question.

** Viewers will instantly recognize Stacey Carosi for her later role as Carrie Heffernan from ''Series/TheKingOfQueens''.
** A few sharp-eared ones might even recognize that Stacey's father is [[Disney/TheLionKing Pumbaa]].
** Patrick Fabian, who plays the professor that Kelly would controversially date during ''The College Years'', would go on to greater recognition as Howard Hamlin in ''Series/BetterCallSaul''. Additionally, he played the lead in the film ''Film/TheLastExorcism''.

* NightmareFuel: Even with the episode's humor and great [[TheGameNeverStopped trope namer]], "Mystery Weekend" gets a mention. There is the matter of the pianist and the detective who tries to solve [[spoiler: the pianist's suspicious death. Both die within moments of their respective introductions by being poisoned and getting shot in the back with ''multiple'' arrows. Even worse, [[FridgeHorror neither are seen again for the rest of the episode.]]]] Also, there's a moment where Lisa saves Mr. Jameson from [[ItMakesSenseInContext a falling ax]] which could have easily hit her as well.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In "Operation: Zack", Zack is trying to leave the hospital so he won't have knee surgery, so he dressed as a doctor to avoid being caught. At one point, a fat nurse comes out of one of the rooms, pulls him in and kisses him. We have no idea where she came from, why this sequence occurred and it is never brought up again during the remainder of the episode.

* StrangledByTheRedString: Zack and Kelly, while the two are shown to be happy as a couple, you can't help but wonder why Kelly would stay with Zack after he's done so many horrible things to get with her including but not limited to trying to use subliminal messages to trick her into dating him, spying on her slumber party, and manipulating her prom date into leaving her so she'd say yes to him. That last part gets even worse since that episode is what got the 2 back together

* WhatAnIdiot: In the episode "Drinking and Driving", after the gang decided to drive home drunk, the (totally sober) Screech volunteers to drive them home, only for Lisa to shoot him down, saying "You can't even ''walk'' straight!" And obviously having no concerns that the "incompetent" Screech tried to do the smart and decent thing, they (including Screech) all give into peer pressure, let a drunk Zack take them home and subsequently crash.

** ''The New Class'' is not particularly liked due to the cast being {{Suspiciously Similar Substitute}}s. The fact that many of its storylines were [[RecycledScript recycled from the original]] didn't help matters either.
