Zack tells Slater that he has been waiting for two years to get a chance with Kelly. However, in the series Good Morning Miss Bliss which was set in the previous school year, Zack mentions interest in several girls but never mentions anyone named Kelly.
Despite it being the gang's first day of high school, Mr. Belding already knows Zack from being his principal in junior high (Good Morning, Miss Bliss) although they never directly say Mr. Belding is just starting at the high school.
Slater has been in 14 schools in the last three years.
When Lisa asked why she had to go with Screech, Mr. Belding said that he put them in alphabetical order. That can't be true because Screech's last name starts with a P and Lisa's last name starts with a T. Slater and Jessie are paired off too and their last names start with an S and since S is three letters after P and one letter before T, they didn't really get put in alphabetical order.
Goof: This is the only time that Lisa is "allergic" to Screech. It does not happen in prior/future episodes.
It was Lisa who was getting the Fashion Club to make the friendship bracelets for Zack's company, and she stays with Zack's company after Jesse, Slater, and Kelly leave to form their own company. The next day they form Buddy Bands, a similar idea to Zack's friendship bracelets--however, since they don't have Lisa or the Fashion Club, it is never established how they produced the Buddy Bands, or how they intended on continuing to produce enough to compete with the friendship bracelets.
Buddy Bands cost $3.95. However, when Zack buys one (right after he closes down shop), he hands Slater a single cash bill, and recieves no change.
The flag on Zack's bedroom door is the flag of Australia.
The first time Kelly goes to Screech's house to be tutored, he's wearing a jacket with the word "FETISH" on the back. Fetish is defined as: anything to which one is irrationally devoted, as well as, any nonsexual object that abnormally excites erotic feelings. I'm assuming it's an in-joke for Kelly's feelings towards Screech.
Goof: When Screech and Mr. Belding are in the office, Belding finds out that Zack and Slater are at the door. When he opens the door and they fall down, the boom mic can be seen.
After tasting Slater's cake, Mrs. Cummings comments that she's taking his cake home. But in the next scene at the Max, the gang is scene eating it.
There is no concievable reason why Nedick would come to the Max to pressure Slater into wrestling (especially at the behest of Zack) because--as Nedick himself points out a moment later--without Slater to wrestle him, Nedick automatically wins the bet he had against Zack, and Zack's dirt-bike.
The fake 'beer belly' that is sticking out of the older wrestler-Slater's shirt is obviously fake: when he turns to the side, you can see that it is clearly over the shirt, not coming out from under it; you can also see the straps to it.
In this episode, Kelly decides that she'd like to be either an actress or a housewife. It seems she changes her mind, though, as in a College Years episode a few years later, she tells Zack she is interested in medicine.
When Mrs. Cummings is judging the chocolate cakes the students made, she merely tap-dances past those made by most of the students, and only comments on those made by the main characters of the show.
In this episode, Kelly states that there are 7 kids in the Kapowski family.
Somewhat of a goof: In The Max when Tony invites Kelly, Jessie, and Lisa to join him, notice when Jessie misses the chair the napkin dispenser on the table falls over. It causes a salt shaker to fly off the table and hit the floor. The shaker is clearly heard smashing on the floor when the shot cuts to Jessie swiping the chair from the extra, and when we see the girls and Tony again Kelly has a "WHOOPS" look on her face like she's trying not to laugh.
Mr. Belding mentions that he was a National Guardsman in Indiana. Good Morning Miss Bliss, which this show spun-off of, took place in Indiana.
When Mr. Belding shows Mr. Testeverde the questions that he had, Mr. Testeverde says "Those are not the questions to the exam," which would mean that none of the 3 questions mentioned were the test questions. Yet, when Mr. Testeverde reads his questions, one of the questions is one of the questions Mr. Belding stated earlier.
The question is "Discuss the three steps taken by the Second Continental Congress."
In the scene where Slater bets his bomber jacket, the German voice on the radio sounds like it says, "Diese ist Hans. Wo bist du, Elvis?" (This is Hans. Where are you, Elvis?) A witty payoff to Zack's earlier signing off in his room.
