  • Trivia

    • When Sarah shows Holly the picture of the baby she found, Holly immediately states that this is indeed Rebecca in this picture. We'll find out later that this baby is actually Ryan. Doesn't Holly know what her daughter looked like when she was little?

    • When Kitty lived in New York, it was six blocks away from the World Trade Center.

    • Kevin is 34 years old.

    • The password was the 1st letter of each of the children's names: SKTKJR (Sarah, Kitty, Tommy, Kevin, Justin and Rebecca), thus revealing that Rebecca is William's daughter. Later we learn that this is false, the letter is for Ryan.

  • Quotes

    • (Kevin and Kitty are having coffee at an outdoor cafe.)
      Kevin: You're the lying whore of the family!
      Kitty: And you're the stuck-up bitch!

    • Kevin: I thought we could celebrate with lunch, you could even buy since you're so flush, since we're sort of equals.
      Scotty: Me having money makes us equals?
      Kevin: Only in terms of-
      Scotty: I thought what made us equals was we're human beings, but oh yeah, that's right, you're not a human being. I remember now, you're a Martian. I usually don't like to admit things like this Kevin, but I was completely wrong about you.

    • Kevin (on the phone): Hi, um, Scotty, it's-it's Kevin, you're least favorite Martian. Look, I've been on your planet for 34 years and I still get a lot of things wrong like about, um, money and work and people and life and love. Everything. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I think you're amazing and funny and cute as hell and I just hope that someday, I don't know, maybe three Martian years from now because our years are longer than yours, maybe I could be worthy of your human love and respect, whether we're together or not. That's all.

    • Kevin: Please tell me this is the part where you let me off the hook.
      Scotty: It's not.

    • David: You're missing your husband.
      Nora: Yes. Do you ever
      David: Cheryl. Sometimes.
      Nora: What happened? Can I ask?
      David: Well to tell you the truth I'm not really sure. We waited a long time to get married because.... Well, I'm not really sure about that either...
      Nora: You were playing the field?
      David: Not that much actually. I just never met the right person. The person that makes you feel like you'd better hurry up. Like there's never going to be enough time.
      Nora: William made me feel like that. Its been its own perfect little hell finding out about all his betrayals. But, when it was good...he made me feel like this whole world- like this whole big beautiful world, was lucky to have me. Little me. Some trick, huh?
      David: Not at all.
      Nora: Sometimes it hurts so much to remember.
      David: I would hurt even more to forget.

    • Nora: Could we maybe...pray?
      William: Yes we should. This certainly is the circumstance for it. Thank you.
      William: Thank you god, for bringing us together tonight, in very difficult circumstances. Thank you for the blessings we have. Our family, our friends...and Lord if you're up there, please look after...and comfort the souls that perished in those planes, and those buildings and their families tonight....we're in your hands Lord. Help us. Amen.

    • William: The world outside this house we can't control. Not with bombs, not with diplomacy, and not even with love, we know that now. The best thing we can possibly do now is just appreciate one another. Right here. Right now. Together, like this. Family is...the only sure thing in life. Always was, always will be.

    • Nora: Here, drink this. It might make you nice.
