* Regina's line referring to Gretchen's nomination for Spring Fling Queen, saying that "She's not even pretty." In the original script, Gretchen was intended to be average at best, ugly at worst - mostly desirable because of her expensive clothes and lavish lifestyle. When the obviously pretty Lacey Chabert was cast for the role, this line was left in, and rather than just a statement, it becomes an insight into Regina's character. She truly believes that she is the queen bee because she deserves it, because she is superior to Karen and Gretchen. YMMV on which girl is most attractive, but fans can all agree that each of them is gorgeous, and only Regina's inflated ego could have resulted in such a surprise at Gretchen's nomination.

** I noticed that when Ms Norbury asks who has felt victimised by Regina, the teachers and even Mr Duvall raise their hands too. So it might be that Regina is so effective as an AlphaBitch that even the teachers don't question her. As for the cut blouses, we only see them wearing the clothes like that for one afternoon - so maybe the teachers did forbid them. It's just that they didn't have replacement tops they could change into that day.



** To be fair, those costumes probably covered more back then...

** A lot of girls do tend to copy dancing they see their favourite pop stars doing. Dance is a bit suggestive on its own, so while it's a bit icky, it's unfortunately TruthInTelevision. It's already a bit icky that these are sixteen-year-old girls performing this dance.

* How did the Plastics get away with wearing such short skirts in high school? I didn't go to a particularly conservative school, but we still had a dress code. (Moreover, how did all the girls get away with cutting cup-revealing holes in their blouses when most schools will call girls out for letting their bra straps accidentally slip down their arms?)

** Some studies have shown that public schools are actually better than private schools--you also make more money if you work at a public school instead of a private school.

** Another argument may have been that considering how almost every female in that scene was victimized by Regina George, so for them to hear all the bad thing that happened to Regina must have been very satisfying to condemn Janis for.

*** But English is a lingua franca in South Africa and other parts of the continent, a dialect that is very different from Midwestern American English. If Cady spoke to ''anyone'' other than her parents, it would rub off eventually. NotEvenBotheringWithAnAccent, I say.

** Plenty of kids with rich parents go to public schools. It might be because the parents do want to save money, (even if you're rich, a good private school can still be rather expensive) though sometimes the kid goes to public school for the general environment. More exposure to different types of people and whatnot.

** In some areas of the country, public school is just as good as (and just as expensive as, due to a combination of taxes and books) private school.

** Cady didn't spend her whole life in Africa, just all of her School years. She could have been five or six when she when over, so english isn't a problem. As for the accent, she could have picked that up from her parents.
