** Which begs another question: Do both shows take place in the same universe? If so, in what order?

* In "Old Man Dexter", why doesn't Dexter just watch movies in his lab if he's not allowed to stay up with his family to watch them?

Simply put, it isn't just about the movies: He wants to do fun stuff with the rest of the family. Watching movies alone isn't as enjoyable as watching them with family and/or friends.

** Taking it a step further, how did they ever get away with ''A Second Dad Cartoon'' with its RiskyBusinessDance ? ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' I could understand, and maybe even ''FamilyGuy'', but this...

* Dexter seemed to be completely annoyed when he was dragged to [[SuckECheeses Chubby Cheese's]] and that was probablly increased when found out who was the real management... but in another episode, when [[ItMakesSenseInContext Dad is pretending to be mom]] he tricks Dexter and Dee-Dee into leaving the kitchen by telling them they are having dinner at Chubby Cheese's... and it works. Why is Dexter suddenly so happy to go there?

* At the end of "The Ol' Switcharooms", why were Dee-Dee and Dexter's Mom (assuming she knew about it) fine with Dad punishing Dexter by making him sleep in the kennel?

*** Perhaps like the ice cream man, Dexter paid him with a giant jar of pennies and through no fault of Dexter's, it caused him some bad experience that caused a deep seated hatred?

** The musical episode seems to imply that the lab space was already there when his parents bought the house. (God only knows how it got there.) Dexter found it when he was barely out of diapers and decided to set up shop. As for power, his lab is deep enough underground that he could be using geothermal vents for energy.

*** On that same topic, if Dexter's laboratory is SUPPOSED to be a secret then why does Dee Dee and Mandark know about it? For a “boy genius” who’s supposed to keep his huge Laboratory a secret, he’s not doing a good job of it!

*** More specifically, a good portion of his waking hours are spent repairing/recapturing/undoing her numerous screw-ups. No Dee Dee = no playing Mr.Fix-it = too much free time. This actually mirrors real life: most young children will soon get bored and/or into trouble without some kind of external direction. Even if they're little Einsteins.
