    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In the scene where Val tries to pick up a married man in a bar, she is confronted by the man's angry wife. Val's response to the woman, "I can have your husband any time I want him," is similar to Val & Abby's confrontation over Gary in Episode #52 ("China Dolls") from season three, in which Abby spoke similar words to Val.

      • Val's alter ego identity of "Verna Ellers" is based on a character from her second novel "National Juncion." Although Val claims the character was based on her mother, Lilliemae claims the character had more similarities with Val. Both Val and Verna share the same initials - VE.
