    Trivia (2)

    • When Brandon tells Nat that Dylan's mother is the reason he doesn't look so good, Nat responds by saying, "He has a mother?" It's been stated throughout the series that Dylan has lived in Beverly Hills and has eaten at the Peach Pit all of his life. Dylan even stated once that he remembered Nat's father, letting us know just how far they go back. If that is the case, then Nat would have known that Dylan had a mother.

    • While Donna is taking money out of her savings account to invest in stocks, Kelly is taunting her and saying that she should get to keep the money instead of Donna throwing it away in the market. Donna responds by telling Kelly she can have 14 cents (the odd change she had in her account), and she places three coins on the counter. It is impossible to have 14 cents with only three coins.

    • Brenda says she is thinking about going for the Sinéad bald look. This is a reference to Irish singer and songwriter Sinéad O'Connor's look.
