It's Not About the Money
Carmen gets an audition and annoys the other residents. Elsewhere, fed up with being treated like bottom feeders, Toni and Billie decide to convince some of the other boys they have telepathic powers.
After Carmen comes back from the audition with Tee, the girls go to Carmen's bedroom where Carmen starts trying to decide which nail varnish she should wear. Tee tries to ask Carmen if she is concerned about the fact she does not know anything about science, but this falls on deaf ears.
Carmen tries to ask Kazima which look would suit her better for her audition, but Kaz thinks Carmen should ask someone else. Carmen then notices something on Kaz's laptop and takes it off her - Kaz, as it turns out, has been watching a video where Carmen sent in a question to the video maker, who is now replying to her. Carmen then has Kazima attempt to recreate the look in the video. Unfortunately, Kazima botches up the job of styling Carmen's hair, who decides to get Tee to do it instead.
- The line "the world is my lobster" was previously spoken by Tracy in classic series episode Can't Buy Me Love.
- This is the first time at least one of the twins is called "shrimp" (in this case, by Bailey).
- Harry is seen in a cartoon animation.
- The scenes where the twins are briefly shown wearing blue dresses are a reference to the film version of The Shining. That film featured a pair of twins who would scare Danny, one of the film's characters.
- Dallas Campbell is the second real life celebrity to appear as himself in The Dumping Ground.
- Carmen wears glasses from this episode onward.
- During the scene with the twins and the playing cards, when Billie picks up the seven of clubs, the angle she is holding the card changes when the camera does a close up on the card.
- In the scene where Carmen orders Bailey, Tyler and the twins out of the pool room, Tyler is seen using a Playstation controller to play Mario Kart - a Nintendo console game.
- A Death Head Dave poster can be seen, which belonged to Harry, who left in the previous episode. (He may have left it as a gift, much like how Toby left some comics as a gift for Johnny in Oh, Mo!)
- Given that Johnny is 15 (at least) he ought to have recognised the machine with the silver sphere as a Van de Graaf generator (unless he has not paying attention to his Physics lessons in school).
