In one of the first scenes of the movie, Casey is believed to be spying on other figure skaters. In order to prove to Tina and Teddy that she is not, she says that she has a notebook and after Teddy looks though it, he jokingly says that it is spy code. 9 years earlier before this movie came out, Michelle Trachtenberg starred in "Harriet the Spy" (1996). In that movie, she spies on other people and writes down things about them in a notebook.
