Nitpick: when Sandra leaves the bridge, Melinda goes to talk to Marty - surely Melinda and Sandra passed on the unused bridge. Wouldn't Sandra have found it strange that someone else was there? Perhaps Melinda hid in the shadows - if so, we didn't see it.
At the end of the episode, we see two sinister ghosts and Melinda is afraid of them. One is dark and faceless, the other has a maniacal laugh.
The "laughing ghost", was originally seen in Episode 1-4, Mended Hearts.
Only the laughing ghosts speaks - he tells Melinda that they have something to discuss with her, but leaves before explaining further.
Sandra (doing comic act): I was talking to an old friend of mine from the past. He's been dead for 2 years; keeps trying to get me come visit, some friend.
Melinda: Uh, I was also a... a fan of Marty Golden's too. I know that you two were close.
Sandra: "Close." Very interesting way of putting it.
Marty: This is where it happened, this is where I killed myself.
Francie (to Melinda & Andrea): I'm not fooled. Being haunted... very good for business.
Female Ghost (to Melinda): We don't serve your kind here, honey.
Melinda: Usually, when I see spirits they look normal.
Marty: What are you saying, I look as bad as I feel?
Marty: They said my material was too cerebral for a young audience. I was outraged. Even after I looked up the word "cerebral," I couldn't agree.
Francie: They were like vampires in love... live by night, sleep by day.
Marty: I knew the minute I stepped off that... I made a mistake.
Melinda: You're gonna be fine when you get out there.
Andrea: I won't. I am a coward. I don't know how I missed that.
Andrea: We should expand.
Melinda: Andrea, it's one month's profit, we're not Walmart yet.
Andrea: That's it, we should franchise.
Marty: So can you tell me what it's like?
Melinda: I don't know, I'm still alive.
Marty: Everybody's a comedian.
Marty: They were right.
Marty: Dying is easy. It's the comedy that's hard.
Sandra: What if I get happy and I'm not funny anymore?
Melinda: He doesn't think that that's gonna be an issue.
Francie: I miss him. You tell him I will never forget him.
Melinda: You just told him.
Francie: He sees me? Hears me? How?
Melinda: Everyone has a talent. This is mine.
Melinda: Why? Why did you do this to yourself?
Marty: I don't know. You don't suppose I can undo it, do you?
Marty: That's her. (they see Sandra getting out of her appartment) I always wanted to make her laugh. It was the hardest damn thing to do.
(about Andrea's comic routine)
Marty: She's funny.
Melinda: She's good. She could slow down a little.
Andrea: Am I imaging it or are your keys defying the laws of Physics?
(Melinda's car keys are floating in water)
Marty: I have to find out what happened to me. Will you help me?
Andrea (after the cups of coffee are thrown out of her hand): Okay, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that that was ghost related.
Andrea: Melinda, I think you better see this.
(glasses balancing on corner of table then they fall)
Andrea: I hate this guy.
Melinda: I think it's time to pay Francie a visit.
Melinda: Andrea tonight's not your night.
Melinda: There's a really nasty ghost up there.
Katey Sagal (Francie) received the "And" credit.

When Melinda walks into the comedy club full of ghosts, one of the ghosts tells her "We don't serve your kind here, Honey".
This is an allusion to the cantina scene in Star Wars when they wouldn't let the droids into the bar.
"Dying is easy. Comedy is hard."
According to legend, these are the dying words of American actor Edwin Booth, 1833-1893. Brother of John Wilkes Booth.
