Chris: I know.
Chris: If you get involved, it's like (slaps face). But if you're on the outside, it's like (pretends to smoke a cigar).
Tom: I thought Mary didn't let you smoke cigars.
Chris: Tom, she can't stop me from smoking pretend cigars. (pauses) Don't tell her.
Chris: (To Tom) It sounds to me like you got involved in a family issue and I have to ask you, why did you do that??
Tom: I'm confused. And turned on. But mostly confused.
Tom: But they said "you're a part of the family now"!
Chris: Yeah, you're a part of the family when someone needs a ride to the airport. Or the gutters need cleaning.
Tom: Family meeting!
Lewis: Wait, can an in-law call a family meeting?
Mary: Chris has never called one.
Tom: Well, I'm calling one!
When this episode reran on July 23, 2004, it ended up being the final time that ABC ever broadcasted an episode of Married to the Kellys.
Writer and producer Liz Astrof was previously the producer and writer of NBC's short-lived Coupling. Coincidentally, Liz was hired as producer of Coupling only after Breckin Meyer and Emily Rutherfurd were cut from the original cast.
When creator Tom Hertz was executive producer of Less Than Perfect both Josh Braaten and Tinsley Grimes made guest appearances as Claude and Kip's love interests.
Guest star Tinsley Grimes is best known for playing 'Katie' on That '80s Show where her long-time boyfriend 'Owen' was played by none other than Married to the Kellys star Josh Braaten.
This is the only appearance of Susan's sister Lisa Kelly.
