As Young Sheldon is a prequel series to Big Bang Theory, this episode is at odds with episode 2-13 of Big Bang Theory, "The Friendship Algorithm," in which Sheldon is unfamiliar with books like "How to Make Friends and Influence People," which he reads in this episode of Young Sheldon, produced nine years later but taking place twenty years earlier.

The commentary suggests that Sheldon had the correct solution to problem 1 and merely lost points on the quiz because he didn't show his work. In reality he did the first problem incorrectly. Taking the derivative of (x+2) ^2+ (y+1) ^2 = 13 with respect to x yields: 2* (x+2) +2* (y+1) * (dy/dx) = 0 which implies that: dy/dx = - (x+2) / (y+1) and at the point (0,2) this means that the slope dy/dx is actually equal to - (2/3), not 2/3. It is correct that when using the form y=mx+b at the point 0,2 reveals that 2=m*0+b, or that b=2. So the correct equation for the tangent line is y = - (2/3) x + 2, not y = (2/3) x + 2 as shown in the episode. (00:13:55)

In this episode we see George throwing a ball against his bedroom wall. On the wall is a picture of Axl Rose wearing shorts in the pattern of the USA flag.

Memaw gets a call from Dr. Sturgis saying that he has moved to Waxahatchie and would she please call him back. He does not say the new phone number, and this was well before cell phones were in widespread use by the general public, so it could only be a land line. Memaw calls him back, although she could not know the number.
