    • Control Voice: (Closing Narration) Philosophers and poets concur on one fundamental truth... love will find a way, it's just a matter of time.

    • Control Voice: (Opening Narration) It is perhaps the central paradox of our existence... to be alive is to be aware of our mortality. Life is, by definition, a terminal disease.

    Notes (2)

    • This episode was written by independent writer Derek Lowe and was his first TV script ever produced. He also had a small part in "Final Exam", but it was cut in the end, although he was still credited for it.

    • The original title for this episode was "Picture Perfect Family". It then became "Best Years of My Life" and it finally ended up "Balance of Nature".
