This episode reveals more details about the characters. Besides the 16-year-old daughter described in the last episode, Isaac has an older daughter Cathy, who is married to Douglas, a radar officer in the navy. They live in San Francisco.
Dan and Casey's first TV broadcast was five years ago on a show called Lone Star Sports. They've known each other for ten years, and Dana states is 33 years old.
Casey passed on hosting what became Late Night With Conan O'Brien, a job that would have triggered the beginning of the end for his marriage.
