don't refer to yourself when adding examples
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted; this troper recalls it being explicitly stated that Esther's brother goes to Massada College, which is an actual school in Adelaide. The observant will also spot an Adelaide Metro train in the background of one scene.

Added DiffLines:
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Jacob gets out of [[spoiler: stabbing his friend with a compass]] by claiming the other kid, and indeed his entire school, is rabidly anti-Semetic. His parents respond by pulling him out of school and putting him in a Jewish school. [[spoiler: This turns out to have made him uber-Jewish, and his parents are visibly annoyed when he makes them wait to start eating to say a berakhah, and grumbling that his roast beef isn't kosher]]
