     I caught this ep scrambled, but I didn't think Callie "got it" right
then. There's a scene in the "Giant Bacteria" where Callie starts
talking about the fantastic job the 'KAT guys did, standing directly in
front of Chance. Not sure you could have this scene just as written, if
Callie secretly knew who they were. Hmm. I'll have to keep watching.

     There have been a couple of screwups with the Razor/Jake,
T-Bone/Chance thing. The first is in "Wrath of DarkKat", where the guys
are in the Hangar working on the TurboKat dressed in the flight-suits,
and Razor addresses T-Bone as "Chance". There's no one else present, but
he doesn't usually do this, probably because he doesn't want to get into
any bad habits. In the "Giant Cicada" (don't have the correct title in
front of me), he calls T-Bone "Chance" again, and I think he had someone
watching that time - but it was scrambled so I couldn't make it out.
