    • Carlos: Edie, what are we doing here? Edie: Checking out a house. Carlos: I told you, I'm not looking to buy right now. Edie: Well, who's talking about buying anything? I... am giving it away. Carlos: Edie, we cannot have sex in here. It's someone else's bed! That's just wrong! Edie: Look, we can't use my place. And we can't use yours. But I'll be damned if I am gonna pay for a hotel room when there are all of these empty houses all over town that I have the keys to. Mary Alice: (narrating) Though reluctant at first, Carlos soon saw the wisdom in Edie's plan. Secret affairs are a lot like real estate. The three keys to success are location... location... location.

    • Susan: Thanks a lot. Now Maggie thinks you're Charles Manson. Mike: I don't care. I love you. Susan: Don't say that. Mike: It's true. I remember everything now. I was on my way to propose to you when I got run over. Susan: I don't wanna talk about it. Mike: I do. What would you have said? Susan: You know what I would have said. It doesn't matter now. Mike: The hell it doesn't, Susan. If you can look me in the eye and tell me that when we kissed you felt nothing then I'll just go. But only if you can say that and really mean it. Can you?

    • Mike: I don't believe this. You are setting me up? Susan: You need to move on, okay? Mike: I don't wanna move on. I came here to see you. Susan: Well, I'm not available. So, if you feel like kissing someone tonight, point those lips at Maggie.

    • Susan: Look, Ian is going to come and invite you to dinner for Friday and you are not, I repeat, not going to accept. Mike: Why is Ian inviting me to dinner? Susan: He wants to thank you for saving us and he wants to show that he's not jealous of you. How's that for irony? Mike: I didn't plan to kiss you but you didn't exacly resist. Susan: I was in shock. Mike: Why were you so upset when you mentioned Ian? Susan: Because we just had a fight. About you. Mike: Really? (smugly) Talk about me a lot? Susan: Mike, I am marrying Ian. We have hired a caterer, we are going with the salmon so just back off. (Mike sees Ian coming over to them) Mike: Hey Ian. Susan: Hi Ian. I just asked Mike, he can't make it. Mike: Yeah, I'm sorry, I've got plans tonight. Ian: Ah. But didn't we say Friday? Mike: Friday? Oh, Friday I'm wide open.

    • Mike: What, he didn't tell you how we played poker for you? Susan: You bet me in a game of poker? Ian: It's not--not how it sounds. I merely suggested that--that if I won the hand, then he--he would stop badgering you. Susan: And if he won? Ian: Well, I--I forget the exact terms, but the point is, he lost, as I knew he would. I never would have wagered you if I didn't have a very good hand. Susan: Get out! Ian: Susan, please. Mike: You heard her. Susan: That goes for you, too. I've had it with both of you. You're tugging at me like I'm some kind of wishbone. Ian: You're just upset. Susan: No, I am beyond upset. You two want a decision? Well, here's what I decide. There will be no kissing, and there will be no wedding, and there will be no damn cake!

    • When Gabrielle opens the door for the delivery guy, you can see a mezuzah in the door frame. Victor is never mentioned to be Jewish, and didn't have a Jewish wedding.

    • Peri Gilpin's appearance as Maggie Gilroy, the man-hungry wedding cake caterer has a substantial likeness to her previous starring role as Roz Doyle in "Frasier".

    • While Gabrielle and Victor are having sex in the elevator, the power is out and there are no lights. Victor makes a point to close the door on the emergency light. How then does the security camera take such clear photos?

    • Susan is now driving a brand new Volvo XC70. This is probably due to when she drove her old car into the water in Liaisons.

    • When Ida asks the paramedic why was Mrs. McCluskey was complaining, he says she was worried that her freezer stuff could melt. Ida goes into Mrs. McCluskey's house, and she screams (she obviously saw Mr. McCluskey). In "The Juiciest Bites", during the "Clips from the future" sketch, Mrs. McCluskey told directly Ida what the paramedic said, and she told her that she did something nobody can find out. Ida asks her and immediately we se Ida going into Mrs. McCluskey's.
