One of the townspeople refers to his "lawyer in Talkeetna." The real-life town of Talkeetna, Alaska, is widely believed to have been the inspiration for Cicely.
Goof: Maurice says his grandfather got the house in 1918, his father was born there, and then he was born there "twenty years later." However, that would make Maurice born in 1938, and he would have been far too young to fight in Korea in 1951.
About 14 minutes into the episode when Jeff Flemming arrives at the O'Connell house while Joel is in the living room chatting with people, the door bell sounds exactly like the good old NBC chime. Northern Exposure aired on CBS!
When Marilyn and the piano tuner are playing together at the end of the episode, there are three elementary-school age children sitting at the front tables. This marks one of the very few times that children have ever been seen in Cicely.
When talking with Joel at the Brick, Bernard takes his hands off the counter twice. Once when he is shot from behind and, for the second time, immediately after that, when he is shown sitting in front of the camera.
Goof: When Chris dreams he is in the "Last Supper Club," he is introduced to the Apostles. Four of them are called Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. While these are the four Gospel authors, Mark and Luke were not Apostles, and therefore were not present at the last supper. (They were disciples of Jesus, but not called specifically by him.)
Goof: At the end of the episode, Chris talks to the town about "the last few days" in the dead of night. In Alaska following the solstice, there are a few weeks with only twilight or a few minutes of darkness before a regular day-night cycle resumes.
