Trivia

Many of the main characters are named after famous scientists. William Bradford Shockley (1910 - 1989) was an American physicist and inventor who won the Nobel prize in 1953. Dr. Robert H. Goddard (1882 - 1945) was a pioneer in the field of rocket science. Otto Hahn (1879 - 1968) is a German chemist who is credited with the discovery of nuclear fission. The Meitner School itself is named for Hahn's colleague, Swedish chemist Lise Meitner (1878 - 1968). See more »

Goofs

During the reveal, Shawn says, "all your life people thought you were younger than you look". This would mean that he either looks older than his age or that he acted immature for his years, neither of which would allow him to pass for a teen. Shawn meant to say, "all your life people thought you LOOKed younger than you were." In other words, that he is actually older than he appears. See more »

Shawn Spencer: No.
Goddard: He's a clone of the original!
[pause]
Shawn Spencer: Know what? Never mind, guys. Just... save it for your online role-play.
