* ActorSharedBackground: Keisha Castle-Hughes is half Maori and half white Australian, like her character Sunnie (although the ethnicities of their parents are reversed)


* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted; this troper recalls it being explicitly stated that Esther's brother goes to Massada College, which is an actual school in Adelaide. The observant will also spot an Adelaide Metro train in the background of one scene.
