Spoiler: The girls that made the Olympic team are: Jordan Randall, Payson Keeler, Kaylie Cruz, Colleen Evans, and Lauren Tanner.
- "Layout Jordan": A skill named after a gymnast would use their last name, not their first. So the skill would be called a Layout Randall.
- Regina mistakenly refers to Jordan's uneven bars dismount as a "triple layout", but it is actually a triple tuck. (layout is when the body is completely straight, and tuck is when the knees and hips are bent, like a cannonball)
- Jordan's triple back dismount on uneven bars HAS been done in international competition before. It's called the Magana, named after Brenda Magana of Mexico.
After the breaking letter of Max (Joshua Bowman), Lauren tried to make Payson feel better by telling her they only had about 3 dates, and then he took off for The Hamptons. That's a reference to the new series with Joshua Bowman "Revenge" setted in the Hamptons.
The D and E score that coaches Belov and McIntire are discussing at the beginning of the episode refer to the scoring system that's been in place since 2006. The "D" represents the difficulty level of the routine, and the "E" refers to how well the routine is executed (which is out of a 10).
Payson's phone number is 303-555-1793.
Goof: When Damon is playing guitar at the beginning of the episode, he is strumming with his right hand. But when he starts writing and crossing things out in his notebook, he is writing with his left hand.
Darby's floor exercise music is a sound-alike of the song "Greased Lightning" from the movie Grease.
When Emily says, "Here it comes," referring to Payson's Shaposhnikova on the uneven bars, the skill that Payson's performing at that moment is NOT the Shaposhnikova--it's a double twist dismount.
The Worlds team: Andrea Conway, Kaylie Cruz, Lauren Tanner, Beth Achinson, Emily Kmetko, Payson Keeler.
The gym that Mark rents for Payson and Sasha is Pike's Gymnastics in Boulder, CO.
Ellen Beals's email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The fake name Chloe uses for her new job is "Bambi".
Payson's comment that she's "an athlete, not a ballerina" is ironic, because Ayla Kell, who plays Payson, has studied ballet seriously since she was a little girl.
Steve's full name is revealed to be Steven Blair Tanner III.
Payson is the only one wearing hockey skates at the ice skating rink.
Emily's comment about France not liking cold berveages is in reference to the fact that most European countries don't put ice in their beverages, which often gives American tourists a bit of culture shock, since beverages in America are always served with ice.
Kim Keeler's cell phone number is 303-555-0149.
NGO: The National Gymnastics Organization of America, the gymnastics organization name used in Make It Or Break It. In real life it's called USA Gymnastics, but legally the show couldn't use the real organization's name.
The time line is messed up in this episode. Proms are usually held in May or June ,but the last episode was Valentines Day, so in reality it should still be February.
Payson's locker combination is 12-24-36.
