Yvette mentions that she got a job at a restaurant gutting chickens. She also mentions that she's getting \$100 a week. If she were to work 40 hours a week, that would make her pay \$2.50 an hour, which is so far below minimum wage it's unbelievable.

Correction: You're assuming she's working 40 hours a week. She may not be. She could be only working part time, and at 20 hours a week, that would be \$5.15 an hour, or what the minimum wage was in Washington DC at that time. Also, some service industries, such as restaurants, were not required to pay minimum wage to employees with reasonable expectation of earning tips. In 2013, a server at a restaurant in the USA, who may receive tips, can earn as little as \$2.13 an hour, as long as tips bring the wage up to or above \$7.25 an hour. If a person makes more than \$30 a month in tips, these minimum wages can apply. This is federal law, states can set their own rates.

In this episode, they mention Mo's car, a Pinto. But in the later episode "Strangers on the Net", Mo and Marcus buy a car, and Mo's Pinto is not mentioned.

Correction: It doesn't have to be mentioned. It would only be a mistake if they said that was Mo's car and they were trying to pass it off as the same car as the pinto. Buying a new car is not a mistake, as many people don't keep the same car forever.

At the party, Nina says her heart beats to the theme song of Friends, and she claps to it five times, but actually the Friends theme song has four claps, not five.

Correction: There are five claps in the song. They are just close together, but listen closely, there are five.

### Mistakes

The word "Puritans" is written differently on the chalkboard between shots, in the scene where T.J. is discussing Puritans with Mr. Delk.

### Quotes

Yvette: Dad! You promised you weren't gonna come down here and binge on cake anymore.
Floyd: You want some some?
Yvette: Yeah.
Floyd: Grab a spoon.

### Questions

How come no one believes TJ that he was the one who threw the party, not Marcus?
