* DesignatedVillain: Johnny Dakota. The popular handsome teen star went to Bayside to shoot an anti-drug commercial. He was nothing but nice to everyone he met, bailed Zack out of trouble, and invited the whole gang to a party at his apartment. Johnny turned out to be a pot smoker and invited Kelly to join in on the fun. As a result, the gang enacted DisproportionateRetribution on him by shunning and ratting him out, which got Johnny fired from the anti-drug ad. All this because he wanted to make some new friends.

Added DiffLines:

* 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

* MemeticMutation: "I'M SO EXCITED! I'M SO EXCITED! I'M, SO... SCARED!" In addition to constant references to it in popular media such as the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode, "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]]", its status as a meme was deliberately invoked by Elizabeth Berkley, who played Jessie, when she appeared on ''Series/DancingWithTheStars''. Before she and her partner Val performed their jive to (naturally) "I'm So Excited", [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x15yum3_elizabeth-berkley-lauren-valentin-chmerkovskiy-jive_people they recreated the whole scene]], including Val coming into the window dressed in a letterman jacket, Elizabeth insisting she needed her "jive pills," and, of course, the singing.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: In one episode, Zack, Slater, and Lisa get drunk at a party and then try to drive home. [[ForegoneConclusion Zack crashes the car]]. They all scramble to fix everything and repeatedly lie to try to avoid trouble. Of course, they get found out, but only after their cover story gets so overly complicated and full of conflicting details. In other words, stick to the same lie or else you'll get caught for what you did wrong.

* WhatAnIdiot: In "Drinking And Driving" episode, 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.

* OneTrueThreesome: In-universe example. In the episode where Screech falls in love with Tori, who is dating Zack, Tori ends up having to pretend to be interested in Screech to win a bet with Zack, but asks Screech to allow her to continue seeing Zack at the same time. Screech responds "Ahhh, an open relationship! I can dig it! I'm hip!"

** As something as a RunningGag of the series, Zack and Screech (but particularly Screech) are very into their attractions/crushes on Kelly and Lisa, respectively (Zack's cardboard cut-out of Kelly, Screech repeatedly regarding Lisa as "his woman", etc.). While it may have seemed cute or a way to express affection for the one you love in the late 80s-early 90s, nowadays their behavior is considered forms of ''[[EntitledToHaveYou obsessive love]]'' ''[[StalkerWithACrush and stalking.]]''
