Dr. Simon O'Keefe:
Anyone who's under 30 who isn't a socialist has no heart, anyone over 30 who is, has no head.
In the episode where we learn about the summer of '97, closer to the end of the episode, Bradin goes and sits down beside Jay. When he runs up, he's shown wearing flip-flops. After a scene between the two of them, Jay gives Bradin his board and Bradin runs off with it. When he gets up to leave there are no sign of the flip-flops.
