    • We find out that the twins' birthday is November 28th, 1979.

    • When we hear Lisa and Ray arguing at the mall with the security people at one point the Closed Cationing reads "I have never seen this woman in my life," but we never hear Ray say that.

    • When the Twins are watching a Friday the 13th movie, Tamara says: "Dad, this is Friday the 13th," and Tia says: "Part 14." that was Part 7, and there's no part 14.
