In the US and in syndication in Canada, there is no cold open, as the opening scene is a recap of part 1.
When Emma comes out of the bathroom, if you look behind her, you can see that the little clamp at the top of the door isn't laid flat across the door. But when she tries to open it, it shows her reaching up and having to pull it back, when it was already back in the first place.
When Spike calls the police she never says anything about Emma being in a hotel, or even what room she's in, and yet the police miraculously arrive at the exact hotel and the exact room Emma was in.
Toby: He's not reading into her soul, he's reading her email.
(Jordan gets caught) Jordan: There's been a misunderstanding.
Mr. Simpson: You make a move, I'm gonna break your neck. Clear? (Jordan nods)
Mr. Simpson: I love being back here. I get to teach kids like Emma; I get to dance with her mother.
Spike: Someone's gotten smoother in the last 10 years.
Caitlin: I mean, here I am, practically turning 30, right? Never having a relationship lasting longer than a few months. And then, because I'm always working, I meet Keith, and he's not always such an ass.
Joey: Could have fooled me.
Allison: Your commercial -
Joey: Yeah, I know. It's totally cheese.
Allison: No, Joey, it's sexy. The way you rip off your shirt. Almost made me want to buy a car.
Spike: You really want me out of here, don't you? Is there something you're not telling me?
Emma: Yeah! Manny's coming over and we're going to watch TV all night. We might even eat popcorn, with REAL butter. Very shocking.
Spike: Okay, smart mouth...
Emma: Wow, you look incredible.
Spike: You sure?
Emma: Seriously. It's kind of scary.
Jordan: (while touching Emma's face) I've been dreaming about this for a while, Emma.
Manny: (reading Emma's e-mail) Love you...Jordan.
Emma: (sighs dreamily) Love you...
Emma: You're-you're Jordan aren't you?
Emma: (beginning to cry) I was so scared.
Spike: Oh I know you were baby.
Spike: How could you do that?! How could you do something so incredibility stupid?!
Emma: I screwed up! I'm a dumb kid!
Jake Goldsbie and Melissa McIntyre had previously worked together on "Mattimeo: A Tale of Redwall", where they were both main cast members.
This episode marks the first appearances of Aubrey Graham (Jimmy), Shane Kippel (Spinner), Melissa McIntyre (Ashley), and Christina Schmidt (Terri), in the Canadian version only, as this was aired as the season finale in the U.S.
Aubrey Graham (Jimmy), and Shane Kippel (Spinner) appear in the Canadian version, but do not have any lines.
There are some slight changes between the original Canadian version and the N-Version. The scene with Wheels is not in the N-version, the begining of the conversation in the bathroom between Caitlin and Joey is cut, and the scene with Joey and Caitlin at Joey's job is cut entirely. Since it aired as a two-parter on the N, it also had a previously and opening credits scene which the Canadian version didn't have.
Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty), Daniel Clark (Sean), and Lauren Collins (Paige), do not appear in this episode. In the US version Aubrey Graham (Jimmy), and Shane Kippel (Spinner), also do not appear as their scenes are cut entirely.
The poster The-N censors reads 'The Pill is Not Enough...'
"Mother and Child Reunion" (2) ranks 63 for Fights and 45 for Shocks and Revelations in the Degrassi Crash Course.
