  • Not a great episode but still a good one, only because of the way it ended.

    • Tru: Hey. Davis: You're here early. Tru: Oh, I'm not staying. I just wanted to get this back to County Records. Davis: Your mom's autopsy report? Tru: Yeah. Davis: Anything new? Tru: No. Standard B and E gone bad. Single bullet, massive blood loss. Of course, I only read it fifteen times and still think there's something I must have missed. Davis: Tru, if I may, sometimes there is just a single bullet. A lone gunman, a tragic death. Sometimes the truth is exactly what it appears to be. Tru: What makes you say that? Davis: Eight years of working here. Tru: Just wish I thought so, too.

    • Tru: Just once. Just once I'd like to go somewhere and have everyone stay alive. Is that too much to ask? Davis: You really want me to answer that? Tru: No, actually I don't.

    • Alexandra Holden (Jackie) was in the film that the title is referring to, Drop Dead Gorgeous.

    • The character Alex was played by Clare Kramer, who played the Goddess Glorificus (Glory) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Eliza Dushku (Tru) played Faith the Vampire Slayer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but interestingly enough, they never appeared in an episode together. Both actresses also appeared in the film Bring It On.

    • Title: Drop Dead Gorgeous This episode's title is probably a reference to the movie of the same name. A very dark comedy about attendants of a beauty pageant filmed in pseudo-documentary style.
