  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (3)

    • Megan: I´m dating someone. (to Dr. Santiago) No, it´s more than that. I´m in love with him. It´s the first time in years I´ve felt this alive. And after the chemo and the pain and the living death I want to embrace these feelings with every ounce of my being. I wanna make love to him with the lights on without worrying about racing to a lamp because I´m self-conscious. I don´t wanna edit one minute of my life. Sean: Don´t do it for him. Megan: No, I´m doing it for me.

    • Christian: I’ve lost my faith, Father. I’ve drank, I’ve done drugs, I’ve fornicated with women and discarded them like trash. I’ve lost my soul. The boys you raped will be saying the same thing in 20 years.

    • Matt: Mom’s making French toast instead of nuking an Eggo? Is it someone’s birthday? Julia: I was feeling generous.

    Notes (1)

    • Although the title character, the woman who plays Cara is not credited.

    Trivia (5)

    • Featured Music: "Boodie Boodie" by Ghetto Invaders (song playing on car radio before Matt hits Cara) "6 Yrs" by Reach 454 (other song playing on car radio before Matt hits Cara) "Clair De Lune" by Claude Debussy (Megan's breast augmentation surgery)

    • At the very end of the episode it is revealed that Christian was adopted and molested by his foster father.

    • Goof: When Julia offers Matt some French toasts, there's a fork lying on top of the pile. When the camera changes angle, Matt grabs the plate and the fork suddenly vanished.

    • Goof: Skid marks are visible as the car stops after hitting Cara, but they have vanished when the boys drive away.

    • How did the car hit Cara with enough force to throw her clear out of the road yet not even leave a dent in the front of the car?
