    Trivia (9)

    • Goof: In the beginning of the episode when Kevin is walking through the campus, in one shot Kevin passes by three giggling girls, one in particular a black girl in a pink outfit. Then in the next shot as he spots Simon and walks up to him he once again passes in front of the same people again.

    • When They are eating dinner the first shot shows Kevin sitting next to Ruthie but in the next shot Kevin is by Lucy and Ruthie is with the twins.

    • Why is Simon in trouble for having a girl in his room if the dorm is co-ed? Unless it's because she isn't registered to that room, but that's more of a technicality than anything else. Also, a resident administrator doesn't report directly to the dean of students. Presuming Simon attends a campus of 10,000, about state university size, a minor housing dispute would go from an RA to the dorm hall director, then *maybe* to Residence Life. If a serious enough infraction, which this doesn't seem to be, the associate dean of judicial affairs is brought in. It'd definitely never reach the ears of the dean/university president. A few rungs got skipped on the college hierarchy ladder here.

    • When Anne was going through the list of reasons she said they couldn't take anymore kids in, she said because Lucy will be needing her help and they already have 2 grandkids. They only have one and she already mentioned that Lucy was pregnant.

    • RESPONSE: maybe Kevin and Ruthie moved when the camera was on Eric
