  • Trivia

    • Early in the episode, Laura is extremely determined to be responsible for when the new teacher comes, as evidenced by her effort to boss the other children around and get them in their seats. This is the first time we see Laura act so "teacher-ese," and she only gets more eager about it in future seasons. Furthermore, the fact that she doesn't want to start off on the wrong foot with a new teacher is clearly a link to her awful experience with Mr. Applewood in Season 2's Troublemaker.
