Goofs & Errors[]

  • Early in the episode, Suzanne's mom tries to catch her before she leaves the house, but Suzanne says her ride is there, and she bolts out quickly and hides behind the bushes. Literally one second later, Suzanne's mom walks out the door, gets in her car, and drives away. If Suzanne really did have a ride, it would be physically impossible for her to get in and be driving away in one second, and yet her mother didn't seem to find that unusual.
