  • Trivia

    • It is revealed in this episode that Cash's full name is Leonard Cassius Morrissey.

    • When Marin and Cash are arguing behind the makeshift movie screen, their silhouettes can be seen by the people watching the movie. This could not have happened because there was no light source behind Marin and Cash that would cast their shadows onto the screen.

  • Quotes

    • Jane: I cannot wait to take you shopping for some new clothes in New York.
      Sam: Am I going to have to start dressing like Donald Trump?
      Jane: Or P. Diddy. It's your choice, The Don or The Diddy.

    • Jane: Don't get mad, but I tried to throw it away.
      Sam: This shirt?
      Jane: Several times. The damn thing just won't die.

    • Jane: (to Marin about getting back Sam's favorite shirt) I don't want him to discover what a terrible person I am. We have only been married a few weeks. It's too soon.

    • Marin: What's going on?
      Cash: I landed this great roofing gig in town. I was hoping I could crash here for a couple days.
      Marin: Cash.
      Cash: I'll even keep my shirt on if you want me to.
      Jane: Oh, that's not necessary.

    • Marin: When Alaska was just a land of trees, tribes created community through barter -- beads for a fur, a canoe for a cow. Trading partners became friends. Friends became family. As far as I can tell, not much has changed up here. We're still giving and receiving in equal trade. When the system is working, both sides come away happy, neither feeling like they've compromised. But rather, getting something better in the deal. In those moments, we are just a community of people -- sharing. Proving every day that it can be just as fulfilling to give as to receive. Sometimes just as hard.

    • Marin: (hears noise in kitchen) Hello?
      Cash: Not much in the fridge.
      Marin: I'm sorry. You'll have to let me know next time you plan on breaking and entering.
      Cash: Just entering. Back door was open.

    • Mai: Who wants a Mai Dud?
      Jerome: What is a Mai Dud?
      Mai: It's like a Milk Dud only not so chewy and demanding. I made them last night. The first one's free. Second one's gonna cost you.

    • Jane: I'll pass on the vino.
      Marin: What? You haven't even tasted it.
      Jane: Wine from Alaska? Honey, that's like oysters from Oklahoma.

    • Patrick: (burps) Egg-water burps... not as good.
