    Notes (3)

    • The opening scene of "part 2" and the next scene with Mrs. Freeman were dramatically cut for syndication. They have appeared on air only during the initial one-hour airing, and have not been seen since, not even on the Region 1 Season 2 DVD.

    • David & Max wrote the first half, while Jeff Greenstein wrote the second.

    • This episode originally aired as a one hour episode, though syndication will usually air them in two half hour episodes. NBC counts this as one episode, as they will with any one hour or "super-sized" episodes.

    Allusions (12)

    • Karen: (to Jack as he is describing the breakdown of his marriage) Yeah, well it's the laughter you'll remember, honey, let's go buy make-up. This is a reference to the song "The Way We Were" from the film of the same name, sung by Barbra Streisand. The actual line is: 'But it's the laughter/We will remember/Whenever we remember/The way we were'.

    • Karen: (to Jack as he is explaining his divorce settlement requirements) You ain't getting 88 cents out of me, Rose. This is a line from the song "Some People" from Gypsy, when Rose is trying to persuade her father to give them 88 dollars for a new show and he refuses with the above retort.

    • Episode Title: Ben? Her? The title of the episode is a play on the 1959 film Ben-Hur.

    • Will: But I was thinking more like, you take your bags and your menagerie, Laura, and take them into the back room, and I won't smother you in your sleep. This is a reference to the play The Glass Menagerie.

    • Will: What the hell are you doing here? I didn't hear Tattoo announce you. A funny reference to the character from the show Fantasy Island.

      This is a wonderful story on how DR. AKUE help me. I never believed in spell casting but After 3 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called DR. AKUE whom i met online after my friend Brown Sharon told me how He also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give DR. AKUE a try and i contacted him on his email dr.akue.solution.centre@gmail.com and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back for me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth once He is done. At first i thought it was a lie but i took courage and believed as DR. AKUE has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, apologizing for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we are expecting our baby. DR. AKUE is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact DR. AKUE on his email on dr.akue.solution.centre@gmail.com at anytime and He shall help you solve your problems.
