    • BLT: Mr. Accette: I'll tell you where Michelle is. Not because you want to know, but because I'm worried about her too, ok?

    Notes (5)

    • Last Appearance: Alexa, the twins, and Lucy celebrate LD's 16th birthday with her in the hospital. It will be LD's last actual appearance on the show, although she will remain in the opening credits, in the soccer clip, until the show's last episode.

    • -Both Snake and Joey fail their drivers tests.

    • -Joey hits on the female driving test administrator, then hits something with the drivers ed car (offscreen crash heard).

    • -In one of the very few instances of bad language being used, Michelle calls her dad an "ass".

    • -There are 2 scenes shown in the opening recap of part 1 that were not shown in the US for unkown reasons.

    Trivia (5)

    • Trivia: Michelle's job is at Donut Express. She is expected to work 32 hours a week and attend school full-time.

    • -Michelle's boss convinces her to cut school on at least one occasion to come to work instead. What kind of boss is this?

    • Continuity Goof: While shooting the video for LD, the twins have on stripes and polka dots, then a few minutes later have on sweater outfits, then go back to the same stripes and dots again. It makes no sense, no matter whether the video was made in one day or over the course of two or three days. Either they changed outfits mid-day for no apparent reason, and then changed back again, or they wear the same clothes more than once in a week. Either situation is unlikely.

    • Product Placement: Simon gets a part in a commercial for Skippy Peanut Butter.

    • -Even though LD says it's ok for Lucy to tell the other kids about her illness, and Lucy does because she enlists the help of a lot of other kids to make a video for her, the twins deny that she's seriously ill when asked by Allison and Amy.
