  • Trivia

    • Clown bangs on the window to ask Marni if the card he is holding was her card, and the window is obviously closed. However, when the little terrace starts to collapse, the window magically opens for Marni to jump in.

    • On close up, the "Queen of Hearts" that Tess holds up at the end looks much more like the Queen of Diamonds.

  • Quotes

    • (the Clown performs a trick for Marni on her birthday)
      Marni Fliss: It's like a clown tradition, they perform a trick for you on your birthday. Last year, he pulled a hat out of a rabbit.
      Nate Solomon: Don't you mean...
      Marni Fliss: No, I said that right.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Nate: It's Christmas in Whoville over there!

      This is a reference to the famous Dr. Seuss story How the Grich Stole Christmas, which takes place in the fictional Whoville, gaudily overdecorated at Christmastime, as is Marni's apartment.
