This is the second time the character Diane Shields has been on the show. The first was in Homecoming.
This is the first time someone comes to Melinda about a ghost.
Melinda (after finishing a topic with Jim): Although, that wind was warm and so creepy.
Jim: What do you think it means?
Melinda: I wish I knew.
Melinda: What if it's me? Think about it, I haven't seen one ghost since the accident. Not even in the hospital. What if the ghosts are really here, right in front of me, and I just can't see them anymore?
Andrea: You have a very interesting definition of half day.
Melinda: Well I had to entertain my mother for an hour. Then I needed an hour to come down from it, and yet another wistful hour trying to figure out why she couldn't be this happy when I was thirteen.
Andrea: Well, better late than never.
Melinda: True, see you tomorrow.
Andrea: Half day.
Melinda: Ya, ya.
Caitlin: Why don't you just face the fact they're not out there? There's nothing out there but nightmares and bad memories.
Melinda: Jim seems relieved though.
Andrea: Maybe he's happy you're alive.
Andrea: How do you think this happened?
Melinda: The accident, I guess. Some people lose their sense of smell, I lose my gift.
Melinda (points to Mr. Keeler who was outside his shop): You know who that is? Thats Mr. Keeler, Gary's boss.
Jim: Oh, ya. The guy with the hex on him.
Melinda: He doesn't really have a hex on him.

Melinda: When I go back to work tomorrow...
Jim: Oh no, no going back to work, you just got out of the hospital.
Melinda: I'm fine. Besides, the week I was in the hospital was the most boring month of my life.
Jim: Boredom is underrated.
Melinda: Boredom is boring, and you can't stop me, so don't even try.
Jim: Three days a week
Jim: Half days. That's my final offer.
Melinda: Or what?
Jim: Or I will withhold my husbandly attention.
Melinda: You don't mean that.
Jim: Give me strength.
Melinda: You don't mean that. All right, fine. Half days.
Jim: Ah, she gave in to my superior will.
Melinda: Yeah, but my first half day starts today.
Melinda (about her mom): What is with her?
Jim: I don't know.
Melinda: She's so cheerful. What happened to the woman who couldn't bare to hear about ghosts? She is freaking me out.
Melinda: Where's Homer?
Melinda's Mom: Homer? Who's Homer?
Melinda: He's our dog.
Jim: Sort of.
Melinda: Actually, he's a ghost dog.
Melinda's Mom: A ghost dog, how cute.
Melinda: Guys, this is ridiculous. I rested for a week in the hospital, I'm fine.
Jim: Oh ya, really? What happened the night you fell? Do you remember?
Melinda: Not exactly.
Ghost Family: You, you're the one who can see us.
Melinda: Do I know you?
Melinda: I want to meet the guy that has you looking like this.
Andrea: Like what?
Melinda: Like, you describe the gold ring on the merry-go-round.
Melinda: I have told you a thousand times. I am not telling your boss his dead employee put a hex on him. First of all, there's no such thing!
Gary, the Ghost: He doesn't know that!
Anne Archer (Beth) received the "And" credit.
