Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tracy first goes to detention and meets Seaweed, when Seaweed says, "Well this is something for you," and then he introduces himself, look on the floor behind him. You can see crinkled up paper balls on the floor that throughout the entire scene move spots, and you never see anybody pick all of them up. For example, watch when Seaweed is dancing and his foot touchs a ball and it gets tossed aside and magically disappears.

Continuity mistake: When Seaweed sings "Run and Tell That", he is singing to Penny, "And then there's those who try to help God knows." When the camera is facing her, Penny is shown looking very stiff, as if she wasn't dancing (or couldn't get into the groove). When the camera is over her shoulder, showing Seaweed, she is dancing. The next shot of Penny she is not dancing again.
