  • Notes

    • This episode paid homage to another series that was filmed in the same area in the state of Washington where this series was filmed. That series was the Mark Frost / David Lynch series Twin Peaks. The scenic vista that Holling takes Joel and Elaine to is Snoqualmie Falls that were seen in Twin Peaks as the falls next to the Great Northern Lodge, the music being played in the background is very Angelo Badalamenti-esque and they also make a nod to coffee, cherry pie and the "Log Lady" character.
