* VindicatedByHistory: Largely forgotten in the decades after its original release, it's gained major attention in recent years since, with the rise of female filmmakers and the Mumblecore movement, it's very clearly a pioneer in both of those categories. Creator/LenaDunham, who wasn't even aware of the film when she created ''Series/{{Girls}}'', was astonished to see an older film that shared the style and themes of her very modern series.

* SoundtrackDissonance: On the DVD version of the season 2 episode "X Does Not Mark the Spot" (guest starring Master P), the Creator/{{Paramount}} Television theme plays on the Creator/{{CBS}} Paramount Television logo due to an error in plastering. The remaining episodes on the DVD release contain the correct music on the CBS Paramount logo.

'''Toni''': (Stunned, taken aback): "Oh, you're just saying that!"


* ArcFatigue: The manga suffers from the usual issue with a romance story: because they have to fill 35 chapters with WillTheyOrWontThey, every time that it looks like Mari and Akko are going to make a little progress in their relationship, they slide back to JustFriends because [[PoorCommunicationKills they can't read each other's signals]]. [[spoiler: After the school trip, they finally get over it and move into a relationship.]]
** TruthInTelevision: Any high-school-aged homosexual will tell you that misread signals are all too easy to come by (and moreso when you're trying to avoid the attention of your heterosexual friends).
