The gold down coat that Marin wore in this episode was designed by Andrew Marc.
Marin's house was also used as Jack O'Neill's Minnesota cabin on Stargate SG-1.
Theresa: If you're going to give our money to your ex-girlfriend, it would be nice if you told your wife.
Dick: I have a slight flatulence problem made worse by onions and perhaps your mother.
Jerome: Girl comes to Alaska, falls for mountain man, he marries someone else. That's "Brokeback Marin."
Marin: Sometimes, it's not until a storm comes that things get unearthed. We get to see what's underneath, the dark secrets, and the truths, that in the light of day we keep hidden. For some, the truth will make them feel closer. For others, it will make them more alone. Pain will get uprooted. Some pain still too deep to be seen by human eyes. But in time, as we replant ourselves, we will be thankful because, like the roots of a tree, it is what lies beneath that allows us to grow. Together or apart.
Marin: Hey, Elmo. I have been hard at work, trying to dig up this little tree in my backyard. But the thing just won't budge. Well, that shouldn't surprise me seeing that it is an Elmo tree and Elmo is a town so tight that even the trees want to stick around. But still it amazes me, this town, that tree. How can something so small have such deep roots?

The title of this episode apparently alludes to the 1945 film A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
