  • Trivia

    • The Vassar family home is the same house that Dan Gordon occupied in The WB series, Charmed. It was right next door to the Halliwell Manor (on the left side as seen from the street). Charmed was also set in San Francisco.

    • Goof: Several shots from 1987 show residential permit parking signs. But the residential permit parking program did not begin in San Francisco until 1988.

    • Goof: In the scene when he is in Golden Gate Park they show the Golden Gate Bridge in the back ground. This is fake. You can not see the Golden Gate Bridge from Golden Gate Park.

    • Goof: In 1987 Dan saves Neal from being hit by a streetcar. The streetcar is the F Line on Market street. That did not exist then. The F-Line started service in 1995.

  • Quotes

    • Dan: Happy anniversary. They said it wouldn't last.
      Katie: Here's to getting it wrong.

    • Nicole: Do you regret it? Having a kid.
      Dan: I'd do anything right now to get back to him.

    • Katie: So, were you high when you ran the red light? Is that why you took off?
      Dan: It's not drugs, Katie. If I told you the truth, that I go on these...these trips.
      Katie: Through time. Go ahead. You can say it out loud.
      Dan: See? That's exacltly what I mean. I'd rather people think I'm a crack addict than think I'm crazy.
      Katie: Where'd you trip to this time, Dan?
      Dan: You'd never believe me.
      Katie: Try me.
      Dan: Remember that guy I told you about? His name is Neal Gaines. Now I think I am tracking his life. And I think I just helped him start a family.
      Katie: Well, that's great. How about sticking around here and saving this one?

    • Dan: I saw Livia. On this...on this last trip or whatever.
      Jack: Okay.
      Dan: I wanted to tell her not to get on that plane, but I didn't. I said something about her life that hadn't happened yet. I spooked her. I might've blown my chance of her liking me before we even met.

    • Dan: I'll always come home.

    • Dan: It's the age of the blog, Hugh. You get the story first and get it right second.

    • Jack: Who is this?
      Dan: What do you mean who is this?
      Jack: Well, you're not my brother.
      Dan: Course I am!
      Jack: Ah no you're not because I'm looking at him right now.

    • Dan:(When he comes back after saving Neal's son) I'm not the man you married, and I'm sorry about that.
