** Fun fact: those headphones weren't just for show. The actress playing Olive really couldn't hear what was being said while she had the headphones on.

* BittersweetEndingBittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:None of the characters get what they want. Dwayne can't enlist in the Air Force, Richard's program doesn't sell, Frank's still nowhere close to fixing his life, Edwin's dead, and Olive didn't win the pageant (and in fact is prohibited from participating in any more pageants in the state of California). But everyone's matured considerably from the whole ordeal and the family is now closer than it's ever been.]]

* TraumaCongaLine: The events leading up to Frank's suicide attempt. First, he fell in love with one of his students, who didn't return his feelings and started a relationship with Frank's rival, Larry Sugarman instead. Frank was so upset by this, that his behavior got him fired, and he had to leave his apartment move into a motel. Then he heard that Sugarman got a "Genius Grant" from the [=MacArthur=] Foundation. At this point he couldn't take it any longer and tried to kill himself.

Olive's outfit is very modest (and much more age-appropriate) compared to them. [[spoiler:However, Olive compensates this by performing a very raunchy dance that her grandfather taught her.]]
