  • Season 1 Episode 4: Why Not to Date a Twin

  • Emily's assignment in this episode: The Sibling Book. It's unsure whether that is just a working title.

  • The text on Emily's assignment sheet reads:

    "Smokers Guide to Six Pack Abs is only partially completed. We need [word not visible] proofing and cover paste-ups by the beginning of the next month. Be sure to ask the art department for the color comps on the cover so the printer can match the color scheme. Also, be sure that insert text has been approved by the editor before it is sent to the printer for approval.

    We need to come up with a take on the Sibling Book. The deadline is approaching quickly, and we need a direction to take this book. Any artwork and other related ideas should be submitted to your department head as soon a possible."

    There are three more items on the paper, but they are covered with a yellow post-it note that reads "Em – Are you on this?". Two of the book titles are (partially) visible, though: [???]'s Guide to Happiness and "the Guess Who project".

  • Josh suggest that for Emily's first date with Vincent, she should wear her hair up and show some neck and shoulders. What's Emily wearing? Her hair down long and a golden capelet that covers her shoulders. Clearly, Emily's not paying attention to Josh's fashion tips.

  • Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

The lyrics to the theme song (with someone's edits and corrections) are used as a backdrop in the opening title sequence along with photos of the cast members.

    2. His tattoo reads MOM.
    3. He has no friends.
    4. He lives in a cave.
