    • Kate: You know how they say it's all the little things that do you in. I just think they haven't lived long enough. (sigh) Oh..Leo. I know I'm...stuck. And I should be on my journey, but...you know what they say... some journeys are best left delayed. Leo: No. That's wrong, nobody's ever said that. Kate: I said that.

    Trivia (6)

    • Kate's Wizard of Oz Ringtones It seems that after the pilot, the ringtones of Kate's brother, assistant, and ex-husband is no longer Wizard of Oz related (it is now just a standard ring). Only her stepmother's 'Wicked Witch' ringtone remains the same.

    • Goof: When Tim Hemmond is called to the stand in the immigration trial, he is referred to as "Warrant Officer Tim Hemmond". However, earlier in the episode, Hemmond clearly shows the rank of First Lieutenant, as denoted by the single plain silver bar. The Warrant Officer rank insignia for the US Army is denoted by a silver bar with one or more black squares, depending on which Warrant Officer rank is held.

    • At the beginning of this episode, after Kate leaves her office, some pictures of San Francisco are displayed. Among them is the same grassy knoll at Alamo Square as shown in the intro of ABC's television series Full House using the same camera point of view.

    • Portions of the nude paintings hanging in Kate and Justin's old condo are blurred out.

    • When Brandon and Kate are outside talking near his house, their camera blocking marks are visible on the sidewalk after the camera pans out as Brandon walks away.

    • Kate was not wearing a bridesmaid's gown in the final wedding scene, even though she was given one and had it tailored during earlier scenes.

    • Kate Reed's telephone has ringtones for people in her circle that are specialized, and have icons, which relate to the Wizard of Oz. The ringtone/image for her stepmother is for the 'Wicked Witch', for her brother, it is the 'Scarecrow', for her assistant, the 'Cowardly Lion' and for her ex-husband Justin is the 'Tin Man'. Her deceased father was known as 'The Wizard'.

    • Bearded Customer: Dave, tell him the one about the lawnmower.
      David Smith
      : What, and ruin this image of me as a man who's good with his hands?

      This is a jokey reference to Richard Dean Anderson's starring role in the television series MacGyver (1985-1992) about an agent who doesn't use weapons but gets out of trouble by improvising tools from ordinary everyday objects.
