  • Quotes

    • Job: (To Paul and Jamie at the wedding) Okay, well, uh, you have the ring, the witness is asleep in the crib, dog's lost interest, so I guess we could move right along. By the power invested in me, I now pronounce you man and wife. And, we got seven seconds left, so you can kiss each other squarely on the mouth.

    • Mabel: (voice over) Yes, it was not my best film. I see that now. But it was what I would call a hugely successful screening. To me, there is no greater act of courage than being the one who kisses first. And bearing that in mind, I ask all of you who are not my mother to turn around for a second. Mom, I love you. Okay everybody, you can turn back around. I said at the beginning that I blame my parents. And I do. I blame them for making me crazy, I blame them for being so difficult... but most of all, I blame then for making it impossible for me to dismiss the idea that love can actually work out.

    • Mabel: (voice over) My therapist said that the reason I clashed with my mother so much is that we're so very much alike. That statement alone upped me from two sessions to three sessions a week.

    • Mabel: Here's something. Our dog Murray died when I was six. So naturally, my parents told me about it when I was twelve.

    • Fran: I don't understand! You can send a monkey to Pluto, you can't make a high heeled sandal that doesn't lacerate my calf.

    • Fran: So, the manager blames it on my feet. Yeah, that's the problem. The shoes that you made are fine. My feet that god made are clearly defective.

    • Paul: Mabel, sweetheart; Boys and girls are different. They're not so different that they're… totally different. They're the same, in that they're… they're both different.

    • Jamie: ...Honey?
      Paul: Hm?
      Jamie: You didn't so much get that second vasectomy, did you?
      Paul: Wh...
      Jamie: Because I am remarkably pregnant.
      Paul: No I did not. (pauses) But
      I've done so many other things that you did ask me to.

    • Jamie: Your grandmother thought of "Mabel." You know, it's an acronym.
      Mabel: A what?
      Jamie: The letters M-A-B-E-L stand for "Mothers Always Bring Extra Love."
      Mabel: Well, "Sonya"'s and acronym, too.
      Jamie: It is? For what?
      Mabel: "Some Other Name, You A..."

    • Mabel: I ask this question objectively, in earnest, and without bias: Who do you think was responsible for my parents' break-up? The one who ran away from the alter and changed her mind three times about whether or not her partner should have painful private surgery? Or the other guy?

    • (Paul trying to tell Mabel about her grandfather's death) Paul: Sweetheart, last night, your grandfather, unexpectedly and in his sleep, ... (little pause) ...moved to Florida.

  • Notes

    • Janeane Garofalo (Mabel) has the last line on the show ever. It was about Paul and Jamie: "And these two, if you'll pardon the expression, lived happily ever after."

    • This isn't only the final episode. Is the third try of one. Danny Jacobson & Paul Reiser wanted to end the show on season 4, and then on season 6, but at the end, they choose 7 seasons, because NBC wanted to keep the show as long as possible. Both Resier & Hunt got 1 million dollars for each episode of season 7, and they said that they agreed only if season 7 will be the final.

    • Helen Hunt won an Emmy for her best performance in this final episode for best comedy actress.

    • As you can see, the final episode has the name of the original Mad About You theme song.

    • As Mabel stated, Murray died when Mabel was 6 years old.

    • The last episode of 'Mad About You' was filmed on Thursday, March 11, 1999 at The Culver Studios in Culver City, California.

    • The series finale home video includes the song "You Give Me Love" performed by Faith Hill.

    • This is the final one-hour episode.

  • Allusions

    • Episode Title: "The Final Frontier"
      The show's finale title is a reference to the show's theme song titled "The Final Frontier," sung by Andrew Gold (seasons 1-5) & Anita Baker (seasons 6-7).
