    • Dan: They say it's always calmest before the storm. That's not true. I'm a serious sailor; it isn't calm before the storm, stuff happens.

    • Dan: There's a difference between "divorced" and "separated." Once is divorced, the other is separated. That's why they have those names.

    • The title takes it's name from the 'Three Dog Night' song "Eli's Coming" But Dan misinterprets the meaning of the song. In the song, Eli is a heart breaker. Dan assumes the song is about an ominous event.

      The song plays at the end of the episode.
