"Well, there's somethin' I been meaning to tell you, 'bout the college on the edge of the town: No one should ever go there, You know it's bad, bad, bad It gets worse every school year But man, the freakin' teachers are rad..."
Disproportionate Retribution\Karma Houdini: In "Prank Week" Baby Cakes kidnaps 5 people and makes everyone think a serial killer on the loose but when the truth comes out he gets a celebration due to everyone misinterpreting it as a huge prank since it was Prank Week.
Dirty Old Woman: Sammy Davis, another member of the History department faculty.
Godwin's Law of Time Travel: In the first episode, Ronald Reagan and Steve travel back in time and completely change the course of man, including having Adolf Hitler circumcised and giving him a Jewish upbringing. When they return to the future, Hitler is leading a Jewish version of the Nazi party in overtaking the world.
Half Hour Comedy: The second season is a half-hour long instead of 11 minutes. The show's frenetic pacing is slowed down somewhat, while the characters are explored a little more.
Power Walk: Baby Cakes, Frank, Steve, and Pony during the opening credits.
Robot Me: The faculty resorts to building robot versions of themselves to avoid teaching the students. Which leads inevitably to...
Screw Yourself: Steve asks who else is f—ing their robot and every hand goes up. But it ends badly when the robots become clingy, jealous, pony-killers.
No, not that Pony. Just a regular small horse.
Shaggy Dog Story: In one episode the Dean learns of rising college tuition costs, and decides that he won't be outdone by other colleges and raises China Il's tuition to $500,000 and lowers the professors salaries to minimum wage. Baby Cakes is the only one brave enough to call the Dean out on this and when he's ignored he takes inspiration from Kevin Coster's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and begins stealing the expensive things being purchased by the Dean and gives them to the students and faculty under the guise of Kevin Costner. While this enrages the Dean to the point where he puts a $500,000 reward on Kevin Costner's head, Baby Cake's actions have virtually no effect on helping the cash-strapped students and teachers. The Dean eventually catches Baby Cakes and attempts to hang him until Pony shows up with the real Kevin Costner and collect the reward to pay for her own tuition. So in conclusion, all of Baby Cakes' actions solved absolutely nothing and the Dean's ludicrous rules are still in effect.
Shipper on Deck: The entire town of China is convinced that Pony and Steve either are together or should be together.
Shout-Out: To Hamlet, of all things. When executing a 90-year old mass-murdering giant, always remember: the traditional method is to pour acid into its ears.
Verbal Tic: Mayor likes to end his sentences with amen, amen.
Will They or Won't They?: There are a few hints of this between Steve and Pony, most notably her offering to marry him right then (and his never actually turning her down) when she finds out about the premarital sex ban when the Mayor takes over the school.
And something went on between her and his robot double. From the sound of it, it wasn't impressive.
Eventually, the entire school starts egging the two of them on to hurry up already and admit they love each other. Neither Steve nor Pony are happy with this situation, as every man and woman they try to sleep with is telling them the two of them ought to be together instead; eventually, Steve tries to set Pony on fire just to make people stop saying they were in love.
