** 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.

*** 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.

* 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.
