Goofs & Errors[]

  • The picture of the outside of the Camden kids' high school is a lot different than from later episodes when the kids are at school.
  • In this episode, it is said that Mary is the only freshman on the varsity team. Corey Conway is on the team and is mean to Mary because she is a younger freshman. Yet in the episode "With Honors", Corey is a senior along with Mary, so Corey should have graduated already, but the show obviously aged Corey slower so that she wouldn't graduate before Mary in order to fit her into the Synopsis.
  • During Mary's basketball game, the first time they show the scoreboard, the other team has 56 points, but when they show it again later, they only have 54.
  • The scoreboard at the end of the game shows period 2.
  • When Eric goes into Simon and Ruthie's room, you can see a crew member in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • In this episode, Eric talks to Simon and Ruthie about drugs together, yet in the Season 2 episode, "Who Knew", Eric, Annie, and Simon all decide Ruthie is too young to hear about drugs.
