Birthday Boy - S2-E13

Corrected entry: We are shown a flashback to Kevin and Paul as toddlers. Paul is shown wearing glasses, but at that age, there is no possible way to tell if a toddler has eye problems, since eyes are still developing at that age. The only definitive eye problem that could be diagnosed is complete blindness, which Paul obviously is not. It could be argued that they only did that to differentiate Paul from Kevin, but that could easily have been accomplished in other ways, like simply having Kevin in his parent's lap and Paul in his parent's lap. Putting glasses on a baby relies on way too much suspension of belief.


Correction: This just isn't true - children even as young as under a year old wear glasses. Doctors dilate the pupils and analyze the light reflection to figure the prescription.

Kevin Arnold - The Narrator: All of our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone that makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope. All the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there's someone perfect who might be searching for us.



When Kevin is upset about Paul leaving for summer and is just lounging around the house, he asks why they can't go on vacation. His mom says "Maybe next Summer." In the very next episode, which takes place in the same Summer, they are going on a "traditional" Summer vacation.
