At the end of the episode Adult Joel quotes a line from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Adult Joel says, "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while. You might miss it." The actual quote is "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it."
The Waitresses: "I Know What Boys Like"
Katrina and the Waves: "Walking on Sunshine"
Goof: Just before Joel bats, he is talking to Pat about being humiliated in front of everyone. But when the camera pans across the bleachers, Pat can clearly be seen sitting next to Isabelle.
The show's new opening titles suggest that Joel went from the year 2002 to 1980 despite the fact that the first episode said he went back to 1981. Even the previews for the show have been changed so that the coach says "It's 1980" instead of "It's 1981." Considering how far back in time they're going it makes the use of '80s music even more off.
How could Pat have broken his wrist in the original past if Joel's grandpa wasn't there (since he broke it while helping Joel's grandpa get up from the seat)?
Adding to the goof about The Empire Strikes Back: Technically it is a goof and at the same time it's not. The first episode said he went back to 1981, but other episodes say he went back to 1980 so it might be presumed that starting from the second episode they switched from 1981 to 1980. It is also possible that the Empire Strikes Back goof may have been the reason they changed the years around.
Everyone's going to see The Empire Strikes Back, which opened on May 21st 1980 - at least a full year *before* when the show is taking place.
The first episode said that Joel went back to 1981. Later episodes state that the show takes place in 1980.
