** Joey is specifically said to have been PutOnABus to ''Calgary.'' Angie went with him. That's a long way for TheBusCameBack, with no real reason other than attending high school--of which there are many, much closer.

** Because "real" musicals have these things called copyright attached to them. Getting permission to use the real thing costs money, from a budget that Degrassi doesn't have. This is why ''Series/{{Glee}}'' has a budge of $6M+ per episode.

** Except that 87% in Ontario is an A+ average. Yes, it is that prestigious, and the competition is stiff.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield , anyway? According to TheOtherWiki , the fictional Banting University is supposed to represent Queen's University, and is in Kingston. This is believable when Paige drives three hours to get back to Toronto when she drops/gets kicked out. Smithdale, on the other hand, is supposed to represent York University. Yet Manny says that Jay "drove for two days" to get there. Without any stops, that puts them in Vancouver (which is about a 39 hour drive). York University is in Toronto, so where is Smithdale supposed to be? Toronto traffic is bad, but not that bad.

** For plot and scene make-up reasons they were probably trimming down the cast needed for the party. To just characters directly needed for Eclare and Bandurner plots. Adam probably wasn't there because it's Drew's apartment and Mama Torres is still mad, Jenna's still on [[AnimalHouse triple secret probation]] after Alli's pregnancy scare, Connor... I got nothing.

* Why is it every school play at Degrassi is always a metaphor for someone's relationship with someone else? Space Awakening was supposedly based on Declan and Holly J's relationship and Eli's play... just enough said. I did theater all four years of high school - while our director probably would have been open to the idea of putting together a student-written production, we did [[TheMusicMan shows]] [[HelloDolly normal]] [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors high]] [[Theatre/{{Seussical}} schools]] [[Theatre/OnceUponAMattress do]]. I wouldn't expect the producers of Degrassi to have the budget to show the students mounting a production of ''The Music Man'' (more for music rights issues, not so much it being a big show to mount) - but couldn't they show the Degrassi students doing a production of, say, OurTown (another play I did in HS), ThePiratesOfPenzance or any [[RomeoAndJuliet Shakespeare]] [[AMidsummerNightsDream play]] than always depending on student-written productions?

** Later in the episode he looks up her music online because he had never heard it before. He's also not the target audience for the [[AkeelahAndTheBee movies]] [[TylerPerry and]] [[DisneyChannelOriginalMovie TV shows]] [[TrueJacksonVP Keke]] has been in.

** It was probably filmed in the spring/summer and the writers are lazy. It should have been freezing.

* Are they ever going to explain how Simpson got his job back?

*** Age of consent in Ontario is 16, so if Fiona was 18, that puts her well past "jailbait" age.

* This one bugged me since the moment it aired. In a Season 8 episode, Holly J. calls Mia "Juno," which at first isn't seen as that big a deal as the episode aired as the movie came out a little under a year after the episode aired and can be seen just as a ShoutOut insult, nothing new. However, note the fact that the episode takes place around September 2007, 3 months before ''Juno'' was released and four months before it was in wide release. Now, maybe it's just because [[ViewersAreMorons I didn't really follow Oscar buzz back then]] but I didn't hear a word about ''Juno'' until after Christmas that year and didn't even see any trailers leading up to it's releases. It doesn't seem like Holly J. follows that sort of stuff either so I doubt she saw any commercials for ''Juno''. What a goddamn continuity fail.
