Notes & trivia
- This episode fleshes out the relationship between Lucky and her teacher, Miss Flores.
- Among the item's on Lucky's bookshelf in her bedroom is the pink quartz that was Lucky's share of Respero's treasure.
- Continuity bloopers: The classroom has desks for only eleven students, but three extra students magically appear for the bazaar team-up process. First, a darker-brown-haired girl wearing a blue vest over a green shirt materializes out of nowhere to approach the lighter-brown-haired girl wearing a brown vest over a white shirt and say to her, "Hey, we should team up." (The darker-brown-haired girl is not seen again the rest of the episode, but in later episodes becomes a regular in the classroom, replacing the lighter-brown-haired girl.) The legs of an unknown boy and girl appear two shots later, run out of frame, and are never seen again.
