- Alternate Character Interpretation: In "The Not-So-Great Escape", does Nicholas genuinely dislike the movie he snuck out of the house to see, or does his dislike of the movie actually come from the guilt of sneaking out to see a movie that his parents told him not to see? Or possibly a combination of both.
- Anvilicious: Downplayed. Lessons were learned, but not hammered into people's heads. This was part of the reason it was able to acquire a decently sized Periphery Demographic.
- Awesome Music: "Stand Up" from "Skate Expectations". There's some other pretty good songs but the rocking style and upbeat tempo makes "Stand Up" stand out.
- Bizarro Episode: "Do The Bright Thing" primarily takes place inside Nicholas's head, where McGee observes what's going on and helps Nick make his decisions. While not an especially egregious example of this trope, the episode is a lot more comical in tone than most of the other episodes.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The fact that Nicholas's head (in "Do The Bright Thing") is represented as some sort of control center and his imaginary(?) friend is running around in it and helping him make his decisions brings a certain Pixar movie to mind...
- Nightmare Fuel: "Twister And Shout" can be this for those afraid of tornadoes, and also for parents, considering the fact that four kids (including one who isn't even a teenager) are at home by themselves as a tornado approaches in the middle of the night.
- Periphery Demographic: The series was quite popular among non-Christians during its heyday, to the point that it sometimes aired on ABC (albeit Bowdlerized) and was nominated for a few awards.
- Retroactive Recognition: Terry Bozeman (who plays Nick's dad in this series) would go on to appear in 24, where he played Richard Armus as well as Dr. Lee Craig on Desperate Housewives.
YMMV / McGee and Me!
