    • The restaurant scenes were filmed in guest star Jeri Ryan's Los Angeles restaurant Ortolan.

    • While not forbidden or unethical, it is not a good idea for a lawyer to defend a family member, as a doctor does not treat his/her family. Brad would likely have played second chair or consulted, but would have had another lawyer defend his niece.

  • Quotes

    • Denny: Ms. Reese. Denny Crane.
      Courtney Reese: Hello.
      Denny: I'm sorry. THE Denny Crane. Crane, Poole and Sperm. Schmidt!

    • Denny: All right, why are you still miffed at me?
      Alan: I'm not miffed, Denny.
      Denny: You're miffed enough to ruin my meal. I thought being my plug-puller would be an honor.
      Alan: It is. And I'm not saying I don't want to be the one to pull your plug. I just felt the way the whole package was presented to me was wrong.
      Denny: I just told you to sign my document.
      Alan. Exactly. With something as monumental as that, you don't just push a piece of paper in one's face. You discuss it first.
      Denny: We've discussed it plenty of times. You said you would shoot me.
      Alan: There's a difference between talking about it and signing a legal document.
      Denny: You're a fricking lawyer for God's sake. That's what you do!
      Alan: With others, yes. When it comes to my personal life, I don't actually sign contracts at the drop of a hat. When I say I'll do something, I do it, regardless of a piece of paper. And I expect people to hold me to my word.
      Denny: What's the matter with you? People don't do that anymore. And you certainly can't expect the hospital to acknowledge your word.
      Alan: In this case, I can see that.
      Denny: Well, are you gonna sign the damn thing or not? Ok... I apologize. How about I ask you properly?
      Alan: Ok.
      Denny: Would you do me the honor of killing me?

    • Shirley: (about the wetsuit) How did you get into that thing, anyway?
      Denny: A lot of vaseline and Chuck in word processing helped.
      Shirley: Poor Chuck...

    • Denny: (wearing a wetsuit) Does this make me look fat?
      Shirley: Yes. Wear heels.

    • Alan: It's spring...I'm in heat.
