    Notes (6)

    • This episode once again contains dialogue at the end that is only available on the close-captioning. As the refrain of Fiona Apple's "Across the Universe" plays, the dialogue of Adam's Mom on the video he's playing continues on the close-captioning right about up until fade to black.

    • As Adam watches the video of himself and his mother at the end of the episode, Fiona Apple's remake of "Across the Universe" plays in the background. This song was last heard on the show when Helen Girardi read Mrs. Rove's letter to Adam in the first season episode "Jump".

    • Evan Handler, Constance Zimmer, and Annie Potts are billed as Special Guest Stars.
