Throughout the show it is reported several times that Billy and Ally met when they were both eight years old in a park by sniffing each other's bottoms. However, when Billy is buried his tombstone reads, 1968-2000, making him 32 years old. Ally is only 29 and does not turn 30 until later which would at the very least, put them 2 years apart.
