Episode Goofs
On the outside of the bus during the tour through Costa Rica, there are ten windows and nine kids' heads looking forward, yet on the inside, there are only seven kids on each side, and only five or six windows.

When the construction workers find the choir group after all the kids are sitting on the truck, Kenny is in the drivers seat. A few seconds later, Kenny is nowhere near the truck and talking to Kelly.
