Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead

Factual error: In Sue Ellen's resume that she types up, the zip code of GAW is revealed at the top of the page as 90042. GAW is later shown as being in the Downtown LA area. The zip code 90042 is in Highland Park - a suburb several miles away from the Downtown area.

Factual error: When Sue Ellen is shown commuting on the 405 freeway during heavy traffic, she is heading to work, indicating morning - yet the angle of the sun and shadows show it is late afternoon.

Other mistake: When Sue Ellen gets the roses from Gus, the tickets in the card have a date of April 6th 1990. This is suppose to be the summer of 1990, which means the tickets are no good. (01:03:00)
