  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: It's Laura's first week of school, and she's shown writing multiplication problems on the blackboard. Laura couldn't even read when she came to school at the beginning of the episode, so it's doubtful she could add and subtract, let alone do multiplication.
      Reply: Math is a whole different ballgame than reading and writing, so it's very possible that she knew how to add and subtract already when she came to school. However, I would agree that multiplication seems pretty advanced for a child her age.
