    • Mary Jo: Oh, Julia. I just think I've been so cavalier. Six months ago I blurted out that I wanted a baby and now I'm gonna have one. I'm so scared. Julia: Mary Jo, I'm gonna tell you something. Hayden and I were planning to have another child when he had his first heart attack. And after he recovered, he was all ready to try again. But knowing that his health was precarious, I decided I just couldn't face the possibility of having to bring up that child without him. I love Payne more than anything in the world, but, oh, how I wanted another child. I gave up that possibility out of fear. It was a deep disappointment to Hayden. And, Mary Jo, it is the only thing in my life that I will always regret. Mary Jo: I had no idea. Julia: Well, I'm telling you now. And what I'm telling you, is don't let fear keep you from having this thing you know you want so much. Mary Jo: Will you promise me that every time I get wimpy you'll just slap me around? No, I mean it. I'm going to need you there with me every step of the way. Julia: Well, you've got me. You've got me. Of course I may have to arm wrestle Carlene to see who gets to cut the umbilical cord.

    • Since Annie Potts was actually pregnant, the initial plan was to write in the pregnancy. The producers felt that since the series lead in, Murphy Brown, was also having a pregnancy storyline that this would be over kill.
