    Yet again, great episode guys, but then again, they always are. Now, as you may have guessed, I need to insert my piece of useless trivia. So, humor me with this observation that has bugged me for nearly thirty years.

    First Marty asks for a Tab, then a Pepsi-Free, and finally he says that he wants something without sugar. Did the writer think that the ‘Free’ in the name Pepsi-Free mean sugar-free? Because it didn’t, it was caffeine-free, not sugar-free. Minor hole in an otherwise funny joke, but still a hole if you ask me…
