Sean refers to "Richard," who was apparently a roommate of his and Ben's who never appeared on camera. (It is most likely not recurring character Richard Coad, who makes his first appearance in the next episode, because he lives in the dorm.)
Hanna mentions Noel's allergy to beets, which would play a factor in the next episode.
The word "Hey" was used 17 times during this episode.
Sally: Dear Felicity, I planned on spending Thanksgiving by myself this year. I thought it would be too hard to try and celebrate the holiday with new friends in this new place, but then Emmitt and a bunch of friends from work showed up at my place with all this food. It's incredible really, one minute your standing in this new city with nothing but your suitcase and then you look around and suddenly, you realize you're surrounded by family.
Felicity: Julie, I'm gonna go wash these.
Julie: Okay. Try the men's room, it's got a bigger sink. Don't ask me how I know that.
Javier (to Julie): You're gonna get dressed, yes? You look nice, but for basketball.
Felicity: Can you guys excuse me for a minute?
Julie: Where are you going?
Felicity: Hyperventilate. I'll be right back.
Felicity: That's Hanna, and she's, uh, Noel's girlfriend from Boston.
Ben: His girlfriend? Really? (Laughs) Okay.
Felicity: Can I just say one thing?
Noel: You never say one thing.
Javier: I said, "Ma, if Nono's gonna be there for Thanksgiving, count me out."
Felicity: Good for you! What did she say?
Javier: There's a little space out back by the garage. She's gonna leave him out there.
Felicity: Wait, so, ah... Nono's a dog?
