* 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.

* Alli said her birthstone was garnet in The World I Know and they celebrated her birthday at the end of the episode. Two episodes later Miles is throwing a pool party and the characters are all dressed for Spring. Did we time jump or is this show suddenly not set in Toronto, Canada?

** ^^ This is correct. In Ontario, you typically begin high school 14 calender years after the year you're born, with school starting in September. For example, if you were born in March 1997, you would start high school in September 2011 at age 14 and graduate in June 2015 at age 18. However if you born in November 1997, you would still start high school in September 2011, but you would still be 13 (almost 14), and you would graduate in June 2015 at age 17.

** Dylan went to "Toronto University", based on UofT, the largest university in Canada. The chances of them running into each other are astronomically small.

** Charlie was only a college student, making her at ''most'' four years older than Fiona. Dr. Chris was already a fully certified doctor. 4 years university + 4 years of med school + 3 years of residency minimum, which would make him at ''least'' 29, but only if he literally just started practising and also never did any extra years of specialization.

** For the record, Banting University is fictional and is based off of Queens university. The admissions average for Queens' business program isn't exceptionally high (it's 87%), which she could certainly pull off if she studied. Queens isn't really that prestigious.

* 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]] [[{{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?

** Though this doesn' excuse her actions though. There are a multiple of things she could've done. First and foremost she could have '''not''' intentionally stood Eli up, even when she knows it might set him off.
