Main Characters in this Episode
Liz: Alex, the reason that we keep on changing the subject is...
Maria: Cramps. We have cramps, Alex.
Liz: Yeah, and we didn't even want to talk about it in front of you because we thought it would make you feel really uncomfortable.
Maria: But if you want really want to know, we can tell you.
Liz: In really excruciating detail.
Alex: No. I'm eating.
Micheal: The thing I've realized is the fact that my life basically sucks is a good thing. It's easier. We always have to be able to leave, pack a suitcase, go somewhere else. Maybe 10 years from now, maybe a week from now, maybe tomorrow. So my advice? Don't get in too deep, Maximillian. It only makes us weaker.
- Goof (continuity error): When Michael is creeping into Max's bedroom through the window at the beginning of the episode, the digital clock beside the bed clearly shows "1:27". After Max lays out the sleeping bag for Michael and then climbs back onto his bed, the clock reads "2:23" even though supposedly only moments have passed.
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Michael calls Max "Maximilian" but in all the other episodes Max's extended name is "Maxwell". This happens in either Episode 1 or 2 of the first season.
- the character Max Evan's full name is Maxwell Evans. Maximillian is the nickname that Michael has for Max. It is mentioned in this episode and in '285 South' and is sometimes considered a character error.
