Stan Knows Best - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Stan has a flashback of when Hayley was younger. She is at least 8 and she is 18 now. In the flashback, Stan mentions President Clinton's sex scandal. This episode is set in 2005. If this episode takes place in 2005 and that was around ten years ago, it would be around 1995. The Clinton sex scandal didn't take place until 1998. (00:09:50)

Casual Person

Correction: Several reasons why this isn't a mistake. First he merely states Haley should eat her peas to "fight off President Clinton's sexual advances". There is nothing about this statement that relates to the sex scandals of '98. Second, the Gennifer Flowers sex scandal came out in '92, so there was already precedent for that line. Third, '98 is when the public became aware of the sex scandals, even though the events occurred in the 80's and early 90's (most notably the Lewinsky scandal occurring in '95). As a C.I.A. agent, it's plausible Stan knew of Clinton's propensity to making sexual advances prior to the '98 scandals. Finally, nothing in the scene suggest Haley is only 8, it's entirely possible the flashback is 1998.
