Apparently Frew is forced to become smart, since his parents make him wake up every morning at 5 A.M. to study. He cannot do normal things like play laser tag because his parents say it is "a waste of time". It is possible that he could have been making up a sob story as he actually enjoys his work.
- Greg mentions that Frew is in third grade, making him probably either 8 or 9 years old. However, due to Frew's apparent intelligence, it is likely he could have been placed ahead, meaning he could be even younger than 8 or 9.
