** Gary heroically calls the evil bikers a bunch of faggots, a term that has become a slur rather than an insult since the film's release. The film does, however, remove the implications of homosexuality from Wez that he had in ''Road Warrior''.

** Scenes of the two boys, who are 15 and don't even have learner's permits, driving recklessly and/or drunk are played for comedy. The increased attention on reckless driving since the film's release make these scenes a lot less precocious and more wildly irresponsible.

--->'''Wyat:''' Lis, I don't know if you can hear me, and I know we don't have the slightest idea what the hell we're doing, but we're still gonna try. And if... if it doesn't work, I just want you to know that the best wish you ever granted us was being our friend. ''[to Gary]'' You okay?\\

** In "Gary Had a Little Cram," Gary finds Wyatt and the other seniors have already applied to colleges and gotten in, so he struggles to catch up and beef up his record. Helping him out, Wyatt talks up the merits of the school he applied to (Paxton University), but Gary doesn't care about that.

* HarsherInHindsight: One episode, Wyatt's wish to become president of the chess club gets twisted into his getting THE Presidency instead. And then one of his first briefings involves learning about national security over the then-recent attack on the World Trade Center, that includes them saying they don't want to be caught off guard again. Wyatt interrupts it instead to talk about the matter of his school's chess club president.

* CreatorsPet: Chett. The producers liked Lee Tergesen's LargeHam performances so much that they started writing bigger and bigger parts for Chett, eventually making him a SecretKeeper in the final season.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In "Slow Times at Farber High," Gary accidentally takes away the intelligence of most of the people at the school. Scampi ends up too stupid to open his own office door, so he thinks he's trapped. After repeatedly failing to escape, he laments that he's going to die on the floor of his office. That's actually what happens to him
in the final season.GrandFinale.
