"The Decider" is a self-given name from President Bush. The Judge uses it in this episode.
Final appearance of Craig Bierko.
When Denny says "How come the other side always has short closings?", this is a reference to the fact that Alan Shore always makes excessively long closings.
This has been mentioned a few times, from Alan and his former secretary, among other people.
We see in the first shot Judge Gloria Weldon slamming Alan against the wall knocking down a plaque. In the next close-up scene we see the same plaque still hanging, just swaying side to side.
Claire tells Clarence/Clarice he/she is not schizophrenic. However, she uses this term interchangably with multiple personality disorder--a common enough error, but still very inexact. The two are not the same thing.
Gary Anthony Williams played Stevie's Dad on Malcolm in the Middle. Merrin Dungey played Stevie's mom. In this episode, they are playing opposite each other again where he asks her out on a date.
The twin blonde singers are based on the real life white supremacist singers Lamb and Lynx Gaede, who perform as Prussian Blue.
A silhouette of a cameraman is clearly seen on the road while the police cars drive past on the way to Lincoln's house.
In the "Previously on Boston Legal" segment, a clip is shown of Lincoln Meyer (David Dean Bottrell) shouting at the judge. This clip was not shown during the previous episodes.
When Alan Shore offers the highlighted insurance policy to opposing counsel, counsel extends his left hand to take it. When Alan then whips the policy away, we see it coming out of counsel's *right* hand.
While it made for good theater to have Daniel Post's organs being scattered all over the country by the illegal organ snatcher, there is no way that they could have been usable. It would have taken too much time to return his remains to the U.S. from Brazil, harvest the organs, and arrange the sales on the black market.
Claire tells Clarice that she does not believe that Clarice has schizophrenia in reference to Clarice seeming to have different personalities in different places. However, any lawyer would know that it is Dissociative Identity Disorder (formally known as Multiple Personality Disorder) that causes multiple personalities, not schizophrenia.
Denny: If there were new guys, they'd shown up on the season premier.
William Shatner breaks character here, when pointing out that new characters are introduced in this (the second) episode of the new season and not as usual in the season premier.
Goof: As Shirley steps up to confront Denny about the doll in her likeness, we see her from the back and left. At that cut, her lip movements don't match the words she says.
At Crane Poole & Schmidt's LA office, Courtney shows its location as the corner of Ocean Ave and Arizona Ave, using her fansite getcourtney.com. This is north of Santa Monica pier. However, later when Denny and Alan are on the building rooftop they are shown to be south of Santa Monica Pier.
Denise turns Marlene's Blackberry face-down, then slides it off the table into the garbage. However, when Marlene plays the video back to Paul, Denise's face is visible and you see her sliding it into the garbage (the Blackberry would have had to been facing up to see her face).
Jeri Ryan has acted in another David E. Kelley show. She was Ronnie Cooke in Boston Public.
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.
With Jeri Ryan as a guest star, this episode features three diferent primary Star Trek characters from three different Trek series all in the same program. (William Shatner: Kirk from Star Trek, Rene Auberjonois: Odo from Deep Space Nine and Jeri Ryan: Seven of Nine from Voyager)
