  • Trivia

    • There is a patient called Mr. Ostrowski in the medical center; Mike Ostrowski is an supervising producer and writer on the show.

    • The Morse code message heard over the title is:

    • Goof:
      Man from neighboring city
      : It's a power generating wind turbine. We get about 1500 watts an hour out of one of these.
      Watts, the standard unit of power, is defined as joules (energy) per second (time). So to claim something generates watts per hour is a time derivative of power and makes no sense in this context.

    • Nitpick: If the ground was frozen so hard that they couldn't dig under Jake's foot to free him, how is Hawkins able to dig a big enough hole to bury Sara with that dinky little shovel?

  • Quotes

    • Stanley (Signing to Bonnie): Promise me you won't kill Mimi while I'm gone. And you'll give her food?

    • Phil Constantino: You can starve next fall or freeze this winter. Take your pick.

    • Mimi: In this crazy world, we don't know what's going to happen tomorrow and I don't wanna leave anything unsaid, so I'm just going to say it, okay? So here I go..
      Stanley: I've loved you since the first day I saw you at Bailey's.
      Mimi: You said it…you said it first. No one's ever said it first to me before.
      Stanley: I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow, plus I can hold it over you for the rest of our lives. (kisses Mimi)
      Mimi: I love you Stanley Richmond.
      Stanley: But I said it first. (kisses Mimi)

    • Mary: It wasn't your fault, Eric. You don't have to do this.
      Eric: I can't be here right now. I can't.

    • Gail: We are not losing this baby.
      Kenchy: You can find yourself another butcher.

    • Robert: Jimmy, uh, Darcy and I are having problems. She's moved out.
      Jimmy: Oh... boy, that's tough. A lot of people leaving you lately, huh? I'm sorry, that's insensitive.
      Robert: I'll get my coat; I'll take you to her, Jimmy.
      Jimmy: Really?

    • Kenchy: Okay, I need you to put these on and monitor the baby's heart rate. Here, put these in your ear, I'll show you how to listen.
      Bonnie: I'm deaf.

    • Gail: Honey, you look tired, you getting enough sleep?
      April: Almost seven hours.
      Gail: Where?
      April: In my office.
      Gail: Sleeping in your office doesn't count. You're going to give the baby a crick in its neck.
      April: You're going to make a terrific grandmother.
      Gail: I know.

    • Mimi: I'll pick you up at 5:00.
      Bonnie: I'll walk.
      Mimi: Look, Stanley thinks that you're using this whole volunteering thing as an excuse to go see Sean Henthorn. I'm just following orders to keep an eye on you; personally I don't give a damn who you date.
      Bonnie: I've been volunteering here since I was 16- it's not about Sean. You volunteered for anything? Ever?

    • Mary: I'm so cold my mouth is numb.
      Eric: We need the logs or we're going to freeze to death.
      Mary: Isn't that what we are doing now?
      Eric: All right. Let's get in the car. A blanket.
      Mary: Let's turn on the heat.
      Eric: We can't I'm sorry, we won't have enough gas to get home. You know, we could make our own heat.
      Mary: Don't get any ideas. I 'm not taking my clothes off.
      Eric: You know how happy you make me.
      Mary: I'm still not taking my clothes off.

    • Dr. Kenchy: What's her pressure?
      Jessica: You smell like a wino.
      Dr. Kenchy: Nice to meet you, too. What's her pressure, please?

    • (her last lines)
      April: I like the name Tracy.
      Eric (in tears): Tracy's a beautiful name.

    • Nurse: This hasn't been about the baby for several hours.
      Dr. Dhuwalia: I'm trying to save April!
