- Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Miracle really that dim or smarter than she looks? Same with Stuart. Does Sue genuinely care about the school but hides it under her burnt out exterior?
- Critical Research Failure: An episode repeatedly referred to Carrie (released in 1976) as a quintessential 1980s film, without a hint of irony.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Miracle due to her assets and being voiced by Kristen Chenoweth.
- Ho Yay:
- Andrew's feelings for Larry and the episode where Larry tries to kiss him.
- Ennis has occasionally given pet names to Larry (ex: Larebear).
- Jerkass Woobie: Ennis. He's rude, he's sexist, he's arrogant, but his wanting to make his father proud by joining the military but it not working out and dealing with admitting it to his father certainly counts.
- The song Miracle sings about taking Merch to be probed and neutered at the vet.
- Happy's song about cleaning the school and toilets.
- Moe: Miracle and Stuart, due to their perky and goofy personalities.
YMMV / Sit Down, Shut Up
