    • Dan: They say it's always calmest before the storm. That's not true. I'm a serious sailor; it isn't calm before the storm, stuff happens.

    • Dan: There's a difference between "divorced" and "separated." Once is divorced, the other is separated. That's why they have those names.

    Notes (2)

    • Robert Guillaume and Lisa Edelstein received "and" billing for this episode. (Robert Guillaume received a credit, but did not appear in this episode.)

    • This episode marks when Robert Guillaume's real stroke on January 14, 1999, was officially written into the series.

    Allusions (1)

    • The title takes it's name from the 'Three Dog Night' song "Eli's Coming" But Dan misinterprets the meaning of the song. In the song, Eli is a heart breaker. Dan assumes the song is about an ominous event. The song plays at the end of the episode.
