While Conrad is watching the swim meet and fighting outside of school, he has a red plaid shirt under a gray sweater. When he arrives back at his grandmother's house and the subsequent scenes, he has a white with thin blue stripes shirt and a beige sweater. This second outfit is what he wore for his date with Jannine, so the sequence at his grandmother's may originally have been intended to occur in the film between the date and the swim meet but later was moved to occur after the swim meet.
