    • Kenny's screen name is "SPUSD ipad 4675930", which probably stands for "South Park Unified School District"; presumably, his family do not have a suitable computer for home learning so they were loaned an iPad by the school district, a common practice in the COVID pandemic.[1]

Goofs

  • When Mrs. Nelson dismisses the class during Stan's flashback at the beginning, Cartman incorrectly refers to Heather Williams as "Heather Thompson".
  • When Stan yells "JESUS CHRIST!" after Adult Clyde is shot, Kyle's mouth is seen moving instead of his.
  • Depending on interpretation of time travel rules, the whole plot would technically end up with a time paradox. When Stan, Kyle and Cartman from the original timeline change the past, they erase the reason for Kenny to invent the time machine in the first place. As a result, the boys in the new timeline have no reason or technology to go back in time.
    • This may be an example however of multiverse time-travel (i.e. the act of time traveling itself) creating a new timeline separate from the traveler's origin. This would explain how Kyle was able to travel to the past after Clyde had already went back to kill him.

  • On the airport clerk's computer screen, the destination for Las Vegas, Nevada is misspelled as "Las Vegas, Navada".
  • On the notice card placed on the airport clerk's desk, the sentence "Earn miles to use on seat upgrades" is misspelled as "Earn miles to ues on seat upgrades".
