* The standardized testing episode raised protesting as a way for people to get their voices across, without breaking the rules or hurting others. All well and good, but doesn't that fall a bit flat in this case? Protest all they want, is anyone really going to listen to a bunch of kids on the matter? Not to mention the episode had one protester, and they were shown to be very ineffective and more of a joke.

* In "The Currency of Doubt", Toby is set up by [[TamperingWithFoodAndDrink having his hard-boiled eggs replaced with cheese eggs to set off his lactose intolerance.]] However, he mentions that he eats hard-boiled eggs regularly, meaning he's familiar with their taste and texture, and when his lactose intolerance was brought up during the initial investigation, he pretty much says it's bad enough that he can't have lactose products at all. So how exactly did he miss the fact that the 4 eggs he managed to eat before he got sick were not only the wrong color (when Fillmore finds the remaining egg, it's uniformly yellow) but also were the wrong texture and didn't taste right, namely by tasting like ''something he had never eaten at all''?

** Just to clarify, it's not all foreign students, just relatives of diplomats, which this kid was, as was presumably the previous one Fillmore busted.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, there were a few other episodes where there were genuine stakes involved, and the culprit getting away would have had consequences. In "The Shreds Fell Like Snowflakes", they needed to catch the culprit before they succeeded in keeping Vallejo from his re-election hearing, and in Masterstroke of Malevolence, the entire chase scene takes place in the precious few minutes remaining before the vandalism of the painting becomes permanent. There was also Nappers Never Sleep, where they had to get Duappy back from the culprit they were chasing before he starved to death.

** That was actually Folsom's fault. Due to [[NoodleIncident a previous incident]] [[DestructiveSavior where Fillmore caused massive amounts of trouble busting a foreign exchange student]], she basically gave foreign students the immunity. If you want to give someone the IdiotBall, give it to her.

* Why the fuck is there an issue about diplomatic immunity when it comes to the trade of forged baseball cards and plates? The culprit is a ''student'', not a ''diplomat!'' Now, if he committed a crime worthy of the police, then yes, he'd be in a lot of trouble.

** Also the episode "A Cold Day at X" is essentially about Academic Integrity. Just because a lot of the action doesn't take place during school hours, doesn't mean kids aren't learning. It's also likely that they work during free periods.

** There was actually one episode where a villain was indeed about to move across the country and was trying to steal a boatload of Smoiks (the fake money that candy and chip companies include in their product that you can trade for prizes) before he went to the middle of nowhere.

** You seem to be watching this under the influence of the TethercatPrinciple. Just because you don't see something doesn't mean it doesn't happen. The plots for the episodes are based around extracurricular activities and sports because they have the greatest potential for interesting plots and satire of school and cop show conventions. Not to mention there ''was'' an entire episode based around standardized testing.
