Character mistake: At one point Cory is telling Shawn about how he can't protect Topanga and they've only been married for one week. But they spent their wedding night in jail, 12 days on their honeymoon and 1 night in their new apartment. So actually the couple have been married for 2 weeks.
Continuity mistake: At the end of this episode, you see Griff standing with Joey and Frankie. He's wearing a jacket over a pink button down shirt that has a red collar and red accents. He sees a girl, and the camera moves to Joey who stands up on the bench and screams at the girl, then when the camera goes back to Grif, he's wearing a jacket over a plain old faded red shirt. I wonder what happened to the other shirt.
Factual error: Throughout the series we are told over and over that Cory and Shawn have known each other forever. We see the boys and Topanga meet when they are about 6 years old, and Cory says at one point that Mr. Feeny has always been their teacher. Yet, in this episode Mr. Feeny says Sean was born in Ohio, lived in Oklahoma and was in and out of 5 schools by the age of 12. This implies that the boys did not meet until middle school, (age 12, when Sean arrived in PA.).
Continuity mistake: At the start, in Cory and Topanga's dorm room, Topanga asks if Cory thinks she is attractive. He says "Yah, let me prove it," and leans on his side. For a split second they show Topanga walking to the door. Then it shows Cory and he is sitting up, if you pay close attention, to Cory and the way he sounds, you can tell they had to start over because somebody messed up
[Cory and Shawn are listening to the radio for the results of a horse race.]
Radio Announcer: And now the results of the fifth race at Pimlico.
Cory: Come on Neckflap, baby!
Radio Announcer: And the winner is Ne... [Cory accidentally unplugs the radio before he hears the result.]
Cory: Nuh!? What kind of name is Nuh!?
Shawn: You idiot, you ripped the plug out of the wall!
Cory: Well he said "Nuh." It's gotta be Neckflap. What other horse starts with "Nuh"?
Shawn: [reading the names of the horses from the newspaper.] Okay, we got uh, Neckflap, Nux Vomica, uh, Nunzio's Dream, and remarkably a horse called Nuh.
Trivia: Topanga is talking to Cory and she says, "My Aunt Prudence wouldn't even know who Romeo and Juliet are!" When her Aunt Prudence knocks on the door, she is played by actress Olivia Hussey, who played Juliet, in the 1968 film Romeo and Juliet, also starring Leonard Whiting as Romeo.
