  • Trivia

    • The last part of the episode clearly takes place at night, but the final shot of the scene where Mark starts a fight at a bar is of a clock that shows the time as 6:50. On April 29 in Los Angeles it would not be dark, or even getting dark yet, at 6:50. In reality, sunset was at 8:12 p.m on April 29, 2010.

  • Quotes

    • Mark: Do you love (Zoey)?
      Demetri: Come on.
      Mark: Do you want to marry her?
      Demetri: Hell, yes.
      Mark: So what's stopping you? You know, even with the way everything went down... even though I lost her... marrying Olivia was the best thing I ever did. Don't be afraid, especially on a day like this.

    • Mark: Here.
      Demetri: What the hell is this?
      Mark: That, my friend, is 15 covers of Islands in the Stream. There's My Morning Jacket, Feist, The Constantines, some band from Croatia...
      Demetri: When the hell did you make this?
      Mark: Yeah, I don't get much sleep.

    • Hellinger: I've seen today more times than I can remember. And a lot of those days started with me sitting right here with you. May I?
      Mark: This? (gives him notepad)
      Hellinger: Please. Thank you. There are so many possibilities--different paths this day could take. I have seen so many different versions of this moment... and the next one and the next one. But in every version of the future I saw... I saw this. In this room, you will lose control. And then you'll lose everything. You're going to attack me, Mark. You're going to attack me because you realize you will never get the answers to your questions. And then, at the end of it all, you'll be killed in your office.

    • Mark: I need to ask you to do something for me. Something really, really hard. Don't be afraid. I mean, it's okay to be afraid, it is. But that's just what happens at first. After that, you have to tell yourself something--"My daddy loves me, and everything will be okay, no matter what."
      Charlie: "My daddy loves me."
      Mark: So much.
      Charlie: "And everything will be okay, no matter what."
      Mark: It's not easy, 'cause things can be scary, bigger than us. But we can fight it. That's what I do. I tell myself, "Charlie loves me, and everything will be okay no matter what."
      Charlie: You do?
      Mark: I do. I tell myself that, and it makes me strong. It makes me brave. 'cause when I say that... you're always with me.
      Charlie: And when I say it?
      Mark: I'm always with you. Always. I love you so much, baby girl. I love you with everything I've got.
