    • At the very end of the filming for the Homecoming dance scene, Brett Low put down his guitar, hopped off of the stage and approached Janine Turner with his guitar pick in his outstretched hand and said: "Ms. Turner? Here's my guitar pick!" Janine uncomfortably accepted with a strange look, immediately darted off to her trailer and disappeared. Within a minute, Ms. Turner's silver haired bodyguard came out of the trailer and introduced himself to the band with first his name, then followed with the immense list of military, and martial arts accreditations he had earned in his nearly 60 year lifespan. He was very friendly and spent the next half hour talking casually with the band.

      Also the official title of Sea of Black's song in this episode is "You're Gone", from their self released album titled "NOW". Easy to get that one mixed up, and not really too darned important.

    • The band that played the homecoming dance was from Seattle, Washington and is called "Sea of Black." Johnny "Rage" Goldsmith was the singer, Brett Low played guitar and is reported to have subsequently freaked out Janine Turner at the end of the filming session. "Johhny O" Ostrem was the drummer and Roland Rosalez played bass.
