- Trivia & Quotes
Jamie Lovato: Champagne, chocolate strawberries, candy hearts? Somebody was in a Valentine's Day mood.
Jo: Looks more like someone was in the mood for World War III.
Jamie Lovato: What is it about Valentine's Day that just makes people lose their minds?
Flack: Is that today?
Jamie Lovato: Yeah, it's today.
Flack: Right. You want to... maybe do something later?
Jamie Lovato: Yeah, maybe.
Flack: How about a couple beers and a slice, maybe watch a game?
Jamie Lovato: Perfect.
Jamie Lovato: Yeah. What, do you really think that all women need that sentimental crap to make them happy?
Lindsay: I was hoping today, of all days, people might be a little nicer to each other.
Sid: You're, of course, referring to the kindly deeds of St. Valentinus, one of at least three martyred saints to whom this secular and commercial holiday is attributed.
Lindsay: Well, call me a sap, but any excuse to celebrate love is okay by me.
Danny: Whoa, whoa, whoa, where's the fire at?
Lindsay: Hey. I got to find Jo, our case just got turned on its head.
Danny: Are you serious? Does that mean we might not be able to go to dinner tonight?
Lindsay: Will you shut up? I know that you hate Valentine's Day.
Danny: I don't hate Valentine's day. I just think it's stupid to go spend on a fortune on some fancy meal just 'cause everybody else does.
Lindsay: Well, now you don't have to, okay? (She kisses him on the cheek) Consider that my gift to you.
Danny: But I promise we will celebrate tonight, okay?
Lindsay: Okay, see you at home… eventually.
Ellie: Midnight? Mom, the movie doesn't end until 11:45.
Jo: That gives you 15 minutes for Andrew to walk you home, give you a good-night kiss on the cheek before your curfew.

This episode follows three love stories gone wrong and each is given a subtitle: Love for Sale (Theodore Hart's case), Love is Blind (Bernard Chandler's case) and In the Name of Love (Jeremy Howser's case).
The action in the episode takes place on February 14th, St. Valentine's Day, one day before its actual airing date. We get a glimpse into some of the characters celebrating:
-Mac gets Christine a card and even though he can't make it to their planned dinner she arranges for them to meet at a nice bar with live music where they slow dance close together.
-Lindsay can't make it to dinner so she and Danny celebrate at home instead spending some quality time together, of which they've hardly have any for a long time.
-Jo is surprised by Ellie who has changed her plans with her boyfriend to spend the night watching sappy movies with her mum while they eat chocolate ice-cream.
-Flack fools Lovato into thinking that he had forgotten about the date and proposes beers and a slice as they watch a game together to make up for it. She is fine with that but Flack surprises her with a most carefully planned romantic dinner on a rooftop.
-Adam has VIP tickets for the Rockefeller Center ice-skating rink since Michelle has never ice-skated before.
The intro for this episode consists of music only without a single line of dialogue to accompany the images.
