Control Voice: (Closing Narration) Philosophers and poets concur on one fundamental truth... love will find a way, it's just a matter of time.

This episode was written by independent writer Derek Lowe and was his first TV script ever produced. He also had a small part in "Final Exam", but it was cut in the end, although he was still credited for it.
The original title for this episode was "Picture Perfect Family". It then became "Best Years of My Life" and it finally ended up "Balance of Nature".
