      Judy Ford: Honestly, when I got the call,
      I had to think, "Ken, Ken who"? Then I remembered every minute we spent together, I remember everything. I'm going to bury him with the rest of my family. That's the way it should be don't you think?
      Federico: Yes, yes I do.
      Judy: Even if I marry again, when I'm dead, I want Ken there to.
      Federico: Family's family, divorce doesn't change that.
      Judy: Not divorce, not death, not anything when people come into your heart.
      Federico: They stay for good.

    • Rico: Being close to somebody when you're the most important person in my life, yes that's adultery.

  • Allusions

    • Claire: When you give something a name people take your word for it, I didn't want to tell anyone how to feel.
      Claire chooses for her pieces to be untitled is because there is so many things going on that it is hard to give something a name when what you think might be different from what others may be thinking.

      Much like the title of the episode, Nancy Oliver and Alan Ball chose the episode to be "untitled" because they did not want you to know how to feel.
