1. The cafeteria cliques are a little different. The new tables are: Debate Team, Dance Team, Rich Stoners, Gangsta Whites, Woke Seniors, Peaking-Too-Soon, Strivers and Survivors, Junior Believers, Christian Believers, Wallflowers, and Fending Off Skeevers.

They still have the Sexually Active Band Geeks, JV Jocks, and "The Worst" aka the Plastics.

2. Karen in general is much more of a ~shining star~. She has seriously hilarious lines (that are also underlined with some sad truths of today).

There's a song called "Stop" and Karen sings about sending nude pics and not cropping her head out and a guy sharing them with all his friends.

Karen: Now I only get naked with people in person! Also someone should teach boys not to do that in the first place.

3. There's still a part about "explaining Regina George," but no $10,000 commercials in Japan or punching in the face.

Caitlyn Caussin: Regina George saved my life once! 'Cause one time at Wiener Circle, she saw that I was choking, and she told me to stop choking. And I did!

Rachel Hamilton: Regina George is considered the prettiest girl in school. And I’m like, okay white people.

4. Aaron Samuels is also in the Burn Book, and it's because he actually lives in another school district and is secretly attending North Shore.

5. Obviously there are a lot of jokes about social media, apps, and the internet...

Mrs. George: I'm not a "regular mom," I'm @coolmom! "@coolmom," 2,300 followers. Followback. Likesforlikes.

6. ...and updated references that make more sense in ~2018~.

Gretchen: Sometimes I feel like an iPhone without a case. Like, I know I'm worth a lot, and I have a lot of good functions, but at any time I could just shatter.

Same, Gretchen. Same.

7. There's an entire song about sexy Halloween costumes, but this time, Karen doesn't kiss her first cousin.

She instead sings about curing sexy cancer, saying, "That's not right, is it?"

9. The Janis pool party thing still happens, but instead of just calling her a lesbian, Regina calls her a "space dyke."

The story is a little different and kind of weird, but we'll just go with it.

10. There's still a Winter Talent Show, but the Plastics perform "Rockin' Around the Pole" instead of "Jingle Bell Rock."

And tragically Amy Poehler wasn't in the aisle of the orchestra seats dancing along. Not grool.

12. The entire show is laced with internet culture in both good and bad ways.

Featuring everything from memes to Instagram references.

Damian: Caddy, I did a paper on this! Our prefrontal cortex isn't fully formed until we're 25. It's why we're not allowed to rent cars! 'Cause we will wreck them just to make a cool Boomerang.

14. Yes, there are Trump references.

Regina: That’s what I keep trying to explain to the President on Twitter but he blocked me. Hahahahha. Love ya!

And when Cady accuses Damian of tampering with the election and nominating her for Spring Fling Queen, Janis blames the Russians.

15. And other political references. Tina Fey wrote the book, people!

Ms. Norbury: And we have to stop beating each other up over every little thing, 'cause meanwhile, men are running around grabbing butts and shooting everybody.

16. For some reason, Regina calls herself a "Fugly Cow" instead of a "Fugly Slut."

We thought maybe it was to stop slut-shaming, but they called someone else a slut, like, three minutes later.

17. "Fetch" is still a thing, but so is "Schquillz."

Kevin G: "It's a cool new way of saying 'skills.'"

Marwan Jitla: "Kev, stop trying to make 'schquillz' happen. It's not gonna happen."
