Trivia

While most TV shows featuring shots of a computer program typically invoke the "User-friendly interface" trope and display something fake and fabricated by the effects department, at around 31:30 when portraying the ftp server that Shen gave to Annie, the software is an accurate screenshot of the Filezilla ftp client (though the windows and background are still a fake version of Windows) See more »

Goofs

Auggie and Annie are seen walking down the Mall to go to a Nationals game at the end of the episode. They're in for a long walk; the National Mall is about five miles from RFK stadium, where the Nationals play. See more »

Quotes
