* Exactly what time period is the show set in? In one episode, Jimmy goes back in time to inspire his father to invest in McSpanky's burger restaurant. He only went back in time 15 years earlier, yet the entire atmosphere suggests it's during the 1970s. This would mean that the show has to take place in the late or early 90s. If counting the time when the movie came out (01-02), then it would be around 1985. You would expect an 80s aesthetic, not a 70s. Maybe the writers came of age during that era and felt more comfortable doing it? Still pretty weird for a show that's specific enough to be set in Texas.

** To be fair, Cindy probably wouldn't have been very helpful about it. Also, if Jimmy has time travel, why even bother traveling to ''after'' he'd given Cindy the present? Why not travel to before the day's events, and put his intended gift somewhere away from his experiments so the mixup never happens in the first place?

** Alternatively: Libby, who already knows, specifically sought out and placed that memory when the others weren't looking so they wouldn't see it.

* In "Send In The Clones", Jimmy collects rare ice crystals forming in space because they supposedly keep ice cream at the perfect eating temperature. If it's just the temperature that's important, why can't he just tinker with a freezer?

** It's implied that the process of restoring their memories took hours, and a lot of it is skipped for time's sake. It could've been one of the memories that came up near the end when they were too tired to care.

*** That very episode answers the question--he has, but chooses to stay in elementary school of his own accord.

** Consider that his unability to finish things is a type of mental constraint. Ejaculation is an inevitable, ''physical'' process during sex. What I'm trying to say is, his tics doesn't have to interfere with his bodily functions.

We might as well ask "How does he finish peeing?", even if he doesn't finish, his body will eventually force him to.
