    • Brenda and Brandon are shown in this episode getting their SAT scores in the mail at the same time as Kelly and Donna do. However, in the previous episode "It's Only a Test," Brenda was in the hospital having a procedure and both she and Brandon missed their SATs. They are never shown making them up and, even if they did, they would not have gotten their scores as early as Kelly and Donna, who took the test at the scheduled time.

    • April is the Cruelest Month

      "April is the cruelest month, Breeding
      Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
      Memory and desire, stirring
      Dull roots with spring rain."

      This is the first stanza from one of American-born poet T. S. Eliot's most famous poems, The Waste Land.
