* SignificantNameOverlap: The episode "The Two Olivias", as implied by the title, has the main character Olivia meet a new student who happens to share her name. The first Olivia decides to change her name to "Pam" to avoid confusion, but it doesn't work out as well as she hoped. The episode's lesson is that one doesn't have to worry about someone happening to have the same name as them.
