Agassi - S4-E13

Factual error: Adam is outside playing tennis at school. The episode takes place "February 1980 something" and the students are all in shorts and the trees and grass are all lush and green. This wouldn't be the case in February in the suburbs of Philadelphia.


George! George Glass! - S4-E3

Factual error: In the parking lot at Live Aid, the logo of the PAC 12 conference is visible on a sign in the background; an athletic conference that's made up of schools in the western U.S. and did not exist during that time period. (00:04:54)

O Captain! My Captain! - S4-E11

Other mistake: Barry climbs up on the desk and comically recites the "Oh Captain my Captain" refrain, which is in reference to the finale of Dead Poet's Society, which came out in 1989. An actual time jump forward, that would make him 20-something, which he isn't. And makes no sense for the episode, which is still set in the mid-80s.

Cowboys Suck! - S2-E12

Question: When Barry refers to the stop sign in his room he says "The stop sign where she wanted to go left and I wanted to go right, so I got nervous, went straight." As he was talking about Lainey, soon after Murray says "Well, let's get in the damn car. And bring the stop sign. We got to put it back. It's a serious crime." Is Barry's quote some kind of sexual innuendo, or is it that he actually, accidentally drove into it because of Lainey?

Answer: Not a sexual innuendo at all. Barry drove into it because he couldn't make a decision to either go his way or Lainey's way.
