My remark on the age of the teen girls was deleted.  My reasoning is this:  If they were thirteen in 2002, then they would have been sixteen in 2005 for the sweet-somethingteen birthday party in TGS 10.  It seems that, by intention or happenstance, the teen girls are actually following something of a coherent plotline.  I think that pointing out the fact that they would be graduating high school is interesting and worth thinking about, if only because it means that the TGS will fail to qualify for the "T" in their title in a scant two years. Dissent? {{unsigned|209.158.39.251|17:17, 12 May 2008 (UTC)}}

Ditto

Does Anyone know what a Ditto exam is? Does it refer to the ditto printer schools use? Physicsguymonsterman 11:42, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

I can only assume it is an exam where all the questions are nearly identical to past exams. i.e. a maths exam where they ask the same questions but with differnt numbers. This would not explain the meaning though. In addition to this section of the toon, it should be noted that the text on the "Exam" is in purple, not black. 125.238.9.80 12:10, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Pretty sure it's a reference to the purple-ink copies made by a ditto machine. Ditto machines are often confused with mimeographs. This would be an ultra low-tech contrast to the Scantron computer-read multiple choice test.

Michelle Branch

The quarterback's song lyrics conceptually reminded me of Michelle Branch's "Everywhere". Does anyone else think that this is plausible? — Defender1031*Talk 12:34, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Two eighty-Sevens?

There seems to be a mistake on the Brothers Chaps part, this Crossover issue is Number 87, but the Hit-Enter-Too-Soon-Man issue is also 87. Is this worth noting?

check goofs, it's already there. — Defender1031*Talk 12:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Floating Time Line

Removed "*If the teens were all thirteen in the first issue, released December of 2002, then this would make them eighteen, making this their "actual" high school graduation." under remarks. I think that TGS, like all homestarrunner.com characters, are, mostly, in a floating time line. (Frazz 14:25, 12 May 2008 (UTC))

I left it in thinking that it was an interesting coincidence, but you're right. Heck, WHF even mentions returning to the school in September. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 14:27, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps a possible "TGS: The College Years" (SDSpivey 16:13, 12 May 2008 (UTC))

My remark on the age of the teen girls was deleted. My reasoning is this: If they were thirteen in 2002, then they would have been sixteen in 2005 for the sweet-somethingteen birthday party in TGS 10. It seems that, by intention or happenstance, the teen girls are actually following something of a coherent plotline. I think that pointing out the fact that they would be graduating high school is interesting and worth thinking about, if only because it means that the TGS will fail to qualify for the "T" in their title in a scant two years.

Quarterback/Quarterman

I transcribed this as "Quarterman", but it turns out in his earlier appearance he was "Quarterback". Not sure whether to trust Cheerleader or The Ugly One on this! -- Mithent 14:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Only Credits?

Is this currently the only TGS to have a real credit roll? 71.90.128.212 17:33, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Tite Rolled

Could the name of the band that performs in the credits a reference to "Rick Roll", the famous 4Chan meme? Is this plausible? --Crazyneo 18:05, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Eighty Sevens

Okay, so i was pretty sure i had moved it to goofs, but i saw it in remarks again, so i thought "maybe i didn't actually save earlier". Turns out i had, and trey moved it because like, maybe it was a joke, something that would irk greg. I actually like this explanation, but i wonder how plausible it is, i could go either way. so... goof or remark? — Defender1031*Talk 18:24, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
