  • The Gym teacher's utter failure at drawing the female reproductive system ("It looks like a cow's head to me."). Then when one student asks Coach Cutlip to draw the whole woman so they know where everything is, Cutlip draws probably the worst drawing of a woman ever committed to film.
  • Later in the same episode, Kevin and Paul are reading a book about sex and his mother finds out—she is more concerned that they went through her dresser. Their expression says everything.

  • In "Pottery Will Get You Nowhere", Kevin tries to break the awkward silence by flinging mashed potatoes on Wayne's face.
    Wayne: Tonight, while you sleep, pal.
  • In "Night Out", Kevin's Imagine Spot of Winnie's father freaking out over Kevin taking Winnie to a make-out party.
  • In "Faith", Kevin has to write a eulogy for himself, and Wayne "helps out":
    Wayne: "Kevin Arnold: born a butthead, lived a butthead's life, died a butthead. Did you get all that?"
  • Kevin and Paul get a copy of the book, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) and Kevin's mother walks in to find the book on the floor. She sends Paul home and has a talk with Kevin, but she's not upset for him having the book. She's upset because she thought he had been going through her drawers!
  • "Kevin Amold." Essentially, Kevin left his ID bracelet at a girl's home, and had to order a new one because he was too scared to go back. So he ordered a new ID bracelet in the same typeface and everything, but his poor penmanship resulted in it being "Kevin Amold", much to Kevin's horror and Wayne's amusement.

How well does it match the trope?
