* 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.

At one point, a fat middle-aged nurse comes out of one of the rooms, thinking he's a real doctor she may or may not be seeing, flirts with him, then pulls him in into the room 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.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Zack in ''Good Morning, Miss Bliss'' and Kelly and Screech in the ''Saved by the Bell'' proper.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** ''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.

* 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.

* 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.
