Kevin says that Waynes SAT score was 317. It was never possible to score below 400 on the SAT, and it was also never possible to score something ending in a digit other than 0. In addition, you would have to really, really try to get below 700. Even then.
We find out how Kevin gets his first car.
This is the last time we see Kevin's grandfather.
When Kevin and his father are getting ready to parallel park in front of the hardware store, you can see a store behind them that says "Sports Cards". This is 1971.

This episode is about the Arnold's annual Christmas party. Annual? Why was there no mention of it in past Christmas episodes?
Jack's birth certificate says he is born in 1927, but the episode is set in 1971. Jack is supposed to be 43 this day. The math doesn't add up.
When Chuck Coleman (Andy) appeared in this episode they were filming outside. There were bugs everywhere and he started squinting and twitching to keep them away from his face and eyes. The director saw all this and told him to keep doing it in future episodes because he thought these mannerisms would add to his character. Thus begun Chuck's trademark twitches.

At the end of this episode, Kevin appears at Winnie's bedroom window and they mouth the words "I love you" to each other. It is known from Season 1 that Winnie wears contact lenses, which she would have removed before going to bed (if not earlier, when the doctors were treating her facial wounds). However, she is able to recognize Kevin from a distance and even read his lips without squinting.

When Kevins sees his new presidential campaign group, he wonders if Millard Fillmore "started off that way". Millard Fillmore was the 13th U.S. president (1850-1853) who became president only because he was vice-president when the 12th president died. In a sense similar to Kevin's situation as he's nominated not by his own volition.
