* WomenAreWiser: Played with a bit most of the time. While the girls are generally closer to Earth than most of the guys, Brad is only slightly closer, and Danny is typically closer than either girl [[NobleSavage (probably because he's a Native American)]]. Played perfectly straight in the BattleOfTheSexes episode, where the guys were suddenly incompetent at everything.

Time does slow down again, though, for the rest of one single summer.the series.
