Kevin refers to himself as being 13 years old, but if you figure it out, he should be 14 by this time.
This is Fred Savage's favorite episode.
After Kevin's first hit at tryouts, Paul says "you swung so late, you put it in the opposite field." However, Kevin actually pulled the ball into the outfield between second and third base. If he had been late, the ball would have landed toward right field. Also, during his home run trot in the final scene, Kevin does not touch third base.
The Apollo 13 explosion occurred on the night of April 13, 1970. In this episode the next morning after the explosion is a Saturday. However, April 14, 1970 was actually a Tuesday.
Paul is chronologically out-of-sequence when they tell their autobiographies.
Kevin comes home from school to watch the liftoff of Apollo 13. Apollo 13 lifted off on Saturday, April 11, 1970.
Take a good look at Hobson's neck during the lunch scene where Robbie Hudson invites everyone to his party. He seems to have a rather large hicky on his left side.
Carla hits Paul in his right cheek when they are in the cafeteria, but when Kevin sees Paul in the hall, Paul is holding his left cheek.
Robbie Hudson walks away from Kevin and Winnie after giving them the invite, but in the next shot he is standing there again.
How could there have been school on Valentine's Day (as well as a history test the next day, which Kevin asked Winnie if they wanted to study together for), because it fell on a Saturday in 1970?
Paul says he's been dating Carla for 3 months. Didn't Paul start dating Carla last season?
Kevin enters in the lunch hall and looks at Susan Fisher. In the meantime his shoulders (with his recognizable dark green shirt) appear behind Susan in the nearest table. In the next sequence Kevin is still on foot at the entrance.
In science class, Kevin takes off his protective glasses. He turns around and then in the next shot he is wearing them again.
Where is the new Arnold family car they bought in the episode prior to this one? There is a completely different car in the driveway.
The red station wagon that Jack looks over at the dealership is seen in several other episodes as a background vehicle.
The episode is supposed to take place in 1969. The song "I can see clearly now" by Johnny Nash was actually released in 1972.
There is at least one shot of Jack Arnold's old car, and it shows California license plates.
This episode is supposed to take place in 1969. In it, the narrator says the car was nine years old, but the FOR SALE sign on it said it was a '63 model. It would only be six years old if that was true.
Kevin's baseball cards are 1989 Topps cards. They are not from the '60s. Not only are they trading 1989 Topps cards, but when Kevin and Paul ride towards each other on their bikes at the end of the episode, some of the "period" cars in the background include a 1979 Pontiac LeMans and a 1989 Chevy Cavalier.
When Wayne is holding the envelope which contains his learners permit, you can see the address reads California. The writers always said they wouldn't let the audience know where the Arnolds lived so people could relate to them better. Wayne should have been covering up the state and first few numbers of the zipcode. Another thing...didn't they just drive to Ocean City (NJ or MD?) a few episodes earlier? That's a long way from California!
