  • Notes

    • In this Episode Stuart says that "the man didn't loose his virginity until he was 30," obviously talking about Paul, but in the episode The Great Pretender Paul says he was 33

    • There was expected to be a seventh season at the time this episode was filmed, once ABC let the producers know that the show was cancelled, this episode was re-edited to make it seem a lot more final when aired.

    • Michael Boatman & Richard Kind are the only regulars to have appeared in every episode since the first episode. Alan Ruck has missed 5 episodes this last season, and Barry Bostwick missed an episode in season 1.

    • Even though this is only the last episode because ABC canceled the show, it serves as a last episode. Think about it. Caitlin and Charlie finally become open lovers. Carter gets a foster child. It's got all the makings of a last episode minus some major happening like a death or the mayor leaving City Hall and an appearance by Mike.

    • Music: "Island in the Sun" - Weezer

    • Alan Ruck returns to the show after his hiatus in this episode.
