Goof: After meeting the ghost at what looks like a power relay station, Melinda is seen driving to the boy's fathers' house in an old style Jeep Cherokee (18:56). However upon pulling up outside the house, she is now driving a new style Jeep Liberty (19:15).
Goof: When Melinda was driving from her antique shop to the woods at 13:34, we can clearly see that she is wearing the red headgear. Then right after that, during the close up shot of her, she's not wearing the red headgear anymore.
The ghost of the boys mother appeared to Melinda in a static form but once Melinda was able to help Kirk the ghost changed its form into a non-static form before she finally crossed over into the light.
Goof: Near the end of the show, when the clock-radio starts talking, the close-up shows that it's 11:32. When Melinda walks over to the clock, however, the distance shots say 11:31. In the subsequent close-up, it's back to 11:32 again.
Christine Baranski returns for the second time as Jim's mother.
Goof: The time line at the antiques store doesn't make sense. It's clearly full daylight when Melinda is in the store and sees the the spirits on her computer screen. But in the next scene she drives to the woods and it's completely dark.
In this episode, when Melinda first hears the EVP, Jim can also hear it. Though Jim has felt some of the ghosts Melinda helps, this is the first time they both experience the same initial "introduction" to a ghost. Also, Kirk sees the ghost of Lacy in TV screens, marking the first time someone else has seen the ghost Melinda is helping.
Ellis Conway is from Philadelphia, and met Jim's mother when he installed a security system in her home. Though he goes by "Ellis," this is his middle name. His first name is Vincent (or Vinny).
Goof: Right before Kirk throws the trash bin through the store window, you can see a reflection of him running away at a fast pace, however when the camera switches to when he picks the trash bin up, he isn't running at all.
This episode marks the first time Melinda gets sick from the voices.
(Andrea talking to Jim at the Market)
Andrea: Hey! You're supposed to pay for those.
Jim: (Jim watching Ellis) Keeping track.
Andrea: All right, what's up with you and Ellis?
Jim: What about me and Ellis?
Andrea: You haven't spoken two words to the guy.
Jim: It's nothing.
Andrea: Does it bother you that him and your mom...
Jim: Hey hey hey! Do we have to put a name on it, huh?
Andrea: I don't get it, he seems like a perfectly nice guy.
Jim: So how come he's checking up on that blonde who is clearly not my mother?
Andrea: Because, Jim, that blonde is a nordic goddess with huge... pastries. A Priest would be forgiven for glancing.
Jim: It's not a glance, it's a leer. Come on. I don't know, it's just something doesn't feel right.
Andrea: Has your mom dated anybody since your dad past away?
Jim: Not that I know of.
Andrea: (Andrea begins to leave) Say no more.
Faith Clancy: (to Melinda) Let's hope he gives Ellis a few crumbs at least.
Melinda: What are you doing?
Jim: I'm coming with you.
Melinda: We can't both leave in the middle of the night, it'll look weird.
Jim: Just when I think I can't love you more, you prove me wrong.
Mr. Jensen: I lost too...talk about having the rug pulled out from under you.
Jim: I've been kind of a jerk when it came to Ellis.
Faith: Kind of?
Kirk: Nothing like doing some hard time in the Grandview jail to turn a guy around.
Kirk: I get why she lied to my old man, but why did she lie to me?
Kirk: Do you know what it's about?
Melinda: It's about a young man who doesn't know how to tell his father that he's gay.
Melinda: I can't believe you tried to put the bags in separate rooms?
Melinda: She's a little impulsive.
Andrea: That's great, I love impulsive.
Ellis: We all have our wounds, kid.
Jim: Not as big as the ones I'd like to inflict on myself right now.
Dr. Huffman: You seem a little surprised...
Melinda: No, no, I'm sorry. It's just you sounded... older on the phone.
Jim: (to Melinda) Oh, he messed with your stations. We should prosecute. Let's go back.
Melinda: I don't think that waiter got your sense of humor...
Jim: I think that's because he was looking at you so much.
Christine: He's my... boyfriend is ridiculous isn't it... he's my special friend.
Kirk: Why are you even involved with this?
Melinda: Because it was my car you chose to steal, and maybe that was no accident.
Faith Clancy: Are you ok? You look worried.
Melinda: Yeah. I guess I'm always worried about something.
Miles Jackson: Are you a social worker or something?
Melinda: I get that a lot. Not really, no.
Jim: Do you ever think there will be a day where you can say, "you know, sorry, I can't help you, you're not good for me, you're making me sick, you're making me cry"? Do you think that day will ever come?
Melinda: I don't know.
Jim: You get a headache. My mother arrives. Interesting.
Jim: Normal guy...how come I can hear them? (hears the voices on the car radio)
Melinda: I don't know. There's a name for this.
Jim: I need to wake up and be sixteen and get over being an adult.
Jim: (referring to his mother) She likes to think she's low maintenance.
Melinda: Don't we all.
