When Kate and her father Jerry are having dinner at a restaurant, Jerry is surprised to learn that Kate is a vegetarian. In real life, Alicia Silverstone is an avid vegan. This is played in the plot in many of the episodes.
Nick: Not that I'm in need of help in the female department — far from it — but as it appears you happen to be hoarding a crop of ready and willing lady friends, I'd certainly be amenable to taking a few of them off your hands.
Kate: (chuckles) Right.
Nick: Are you insinuating that I'm not eminently date-worthy?
Kate: Of course not. The next time I come across a woman who enjoys overblown egos and shifting through garbage, I'll be sure to send her your way.
Kate: If the Dodgers won the world series because they'd figured out how to make every other good team forfeit, you think anyone would be impressed?
Jerry: We're divorce attorneys. We could walk on water; nobody's gonna be impressed.
Kate: This divorce lawyer has a brief to go over tonight.
Brian: Fine. But in Maui, it's gonna be all about my briefs.
Jolene's Lawyer: (fighting over Pepper the dog) This is ridiculous. Do you honestly expect my client to just roll over like this?
Jerry: No, but I do expect her to "sit" and "stay".
Kate: (to Richard) A hint about women? We want deep and real and profound, but if we're looking good, we wanna know about it.
Nick: Few years under your belt you'll realize marriage is a transaction like anything else. When I go to a wedding I don't see a bride. I see a future client.
JoBeth Williams (Kate's mom Lianne) is credited as a special guest star.

In early publicity material about the show Kate's father's first name was Sid.
This show was shot on the same set as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

This show is based on a true story. The character of Kate Fox is based on Samantha Daniels, who is allegedly responsible for 39 marriages. She runs her own matchmaking service, Samantha's Table, and was also the co-producer of the show. She also appeared as an extra in the pilot episode (as Would-be Client #4).
Richard: Yesterday I re-read A Brief History of Time...
Brad: Do you know who introduced me to Chelsea? Jenny Craig.
Jenny Craig is weight loss consultant. The Jenny Craig Weight Loss Plan consists of one-on-one counselling sessions with a health professional, pre-planned menus, and prepackaged Jenny Craig food items.
