  • Trivia

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Janet says that the name "Madeline" means "tower of strength." This is untrue; the name actually means "from Magdala." Obviously, that doesn't sound nearly as poetic.

    • Music:
      I've Got You Under My Skin by Cole Porter (sung by Luke Perry)

    • Jackie's remark that Kelly "pulled Dylan out of the fire all through high school" seems inaccurate, as this was primarily the Walshes' job until they all started leaving the show.

    • Donna becomes the fourth character to discover a long-lost half-sibling, following Dylan, Kelly and Noah. She and Gina hold the unusual distinction of being both half-sisters and first cousins, which Felice pointed out in a humorous remark. ("What are you going to do, introduce her as your sister AND your cousin?")

  • Allusions

    • "What's in a Name?" comes from the famous line in William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet":

      What's in a name? That which we call a rose
      By any other name would smell as a sweet.


    • "What's in a name?" is a line from "Hakuna Matata" from "The Lion King."
