Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (miscellaneous): Toby is listed as Toby Marshall in the credits.
  • Goof (factual errors): The movers carry a chair into Maya's new home, passing the Elmhurst Real Estate "SOLD" sign. The phone number on the sign is "1-800-HOUSES", which is 1 letter/number too short to be an actual phone number.

Trivia

  • Ian Thomas was originally played by Carlo Marks in the pilot and then replaced by Ryan Merriman.
  • Filmed in Vancouver in the winter even though the episode was set in the summer. Even though they were wearing bikinis, they had to wear boots as the camera shot from the belly button up.
  • The events of the pilot episode cover the entire first book in the Pretty Little Liars series.
  • While shooting this episode in Vancouver Ashley Benson (Hannah Marin) suggested the song "Secret" by the pierces as the shows theme song, it was later approved due to the fact that most of the cast loved it.
