Continuity mistake: During the scene with the family in the living room and Claudia and Lily are sitting on the covered couch, the sheet falls off the top of the couch. In subsequent shots the sheet falls off and goes back on the top through the whole scene.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, Claudia states that Eddie has never had a job for as long as she has known him. But in the episode "Don't Fear the Reefer", flashbacks show her hanging out with Eddie and Sean during their pot-smoking days, and also show Eddie working at a pizza parlor.
Continuity mistake: This episode establishes that Lily was born at the Live Aid event, which took place in July 1985. In the show's final episode, "Hello, Goodbye", Brad and Lily are graduating in 2005 (see the "congratulations" banner in a hallway at their school). Being born in 1985 would mean that she is graduating at age 20. It is highly unlikely that she failed and repeated two of her school years. Brad, who is the same age, is graduating with her, and he is a dedicated student.
Trivia: In several episodes, when people are in the kitchen, you can see that the microwave always has 34 seconds of time left on the display.
Henry Finnerty: Wow, that ride must be really scary. Those two guys are holding hands.
James "Jimmy" Finnerty: That's the line for cotton candy.
Sean: Only three more years.
Claudia: 'Till she goes off to college?
Sean: Nope. 'Till she can be tried as an adult.
Claudia: You were ambushed by elves?
Sean: Yeah, yeah. Santa's elves. The fat bastard sicked them on me.
Claudia: But your dad is Santa.
Sean: Yeah, and he's a fat bastard.
Question: I don't understand Lily's nervousness about impressing Dean in this episode - almost as if they have never been on a date. She already referred to him as her "boyfriend" in "Smoke on the Daughter", and they arranged a date in that episode. And he has been in her bedroom and brought her a Christmas present ("I Saw Daddy Hitting Santa Claus"). Why does this episode suddenly make it seem like they have never been on a date?
