Trivia: At the time this show was made, it took 2 weeks for AIDS test results.
Trivia: Lucy continues making tapes for LD, a practice she began in Sixteen (2), and continued in Bad Blood (1). For this tape, Lucy takes a poll, asking if people think the condom machines in the bathrooms are a good idea. The results: Spike - yes; Clutch - no; Kathleen - no; Mr. Raditch - yes; Melanie - no.
Trivia: Joey, Snake, and Wheels try to devise a plan to get back at Dwayne; their initial idea was to glue his locker shut.
Goof: Since Simon and BLT are best friends and spend all their time together, and Alexa spends all her time with Simon, it's difficult to believe that she knew nothing about BLT's new girlfriend until four weeks after he started dating her.
Goof: Joey complains that he's broke and still owes half the people in the school money because he offered double-or-nothing on the bet. The car costs $2,999; car dealers don't finance cars to kids under the age of 18, and Joey commented earlier that his parents couldn't help him pay for it. He gets $314 from Dwayne for keeping his mouth shut about Dwayne's HIV, and he had $75 saved from his summer job. Where did the rest of the money for the car come from?
Product Placement: Again, Tabi is holding a box of Quaker Dipps with the box facing the camera as she walks down the hall after hearing the AIDS speakers in class.
Dwayne: Go, get away!
Joey: No, I want to settle this NOW!
Dwayne: I don't want to fight anymore.
Joey: What's the matter? Are you scared of a little blood?
Dwayne: Joey, I'm warning you, stay away from me!
Joey: Oh, big tough guy's a wimp, a chicken. Come on!
Dwayne: Didn't you hear what they said? You're bleeding too, man!
Joey: What are you talking about?
Dwayne: Do you want this on you? What if I had AIDS?
Joey: Dwayne, if you had AIDS, that's fine by me. I'll be at your funeral, man. I'll be the guy laughing!
Dwayne: You think it's a joke? You think I'd joke if I had it? I didn't do anything wrong! I was just careless, that's all (sobbing), and NOW I'M GOING TO DIE! GET OUT OF HERE! I SAID GET OUT! (sobbing) I've got no future. I'm going to die. OH GOD!
Joey: I'm a compassionate guy.
Fight Scene: According to Pat Mastroianni (Joey) and Darrin Brown (Dwayne), the fight scene was grueling to shoot and took a long time. They were both exhausted, and by the time the day was almost over, all Darrin had to do was cock his head to the side and stick out his lower lip, and he and Pat would break out in the giggles.
US Airing: When shown on PBS, there was a tag with Joey (Pat Mastroianni) and Caitlin (Stacie Mistysyn), who discuss HIV and give the AIDS Hotline number.
