Fred: I've heard about physical attraction before, chemically I understand it but I've never experienced it. Jane Bingum: What, you've never had a crush? Fred: Up there all I meet are dead people. Jane Bingum: Well, forget it, okay? Stacey's out of your league. You'll be setting yourself up for a world of hurt. Fred: No no no, you don't understand! I look at this Stacey, and I, and I can't help it. I wanna, I wanna do her grocery shopping, wanna, wanna re-roof her house. I wanna... hunt animals and bring her the MEAT.
  • Ben Feldman was never credited as a regular cast member, nor even in the first three season when Fred was a regular character. He went always by "(special) guest star". Regular cast members Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst and Kate Levering were credited in all 78 episodes, despite being absent from some of them for different reasons.
  • The character of Deb was named after show's creator Josh Berman's grandmother, who according to him "inspired the entire series."
  • As with many TV shows, the set decoration for Harrison and Parker Law Firm is different at the pilot than from the rest of the show. However, the gap between the events at the pilot and the events at episode 02 is one week away, too short to argue an office makeover.
  • The pilot was originally set up at Fox. When Fox passed on the project, Lifetime picked up the project and put the show into production.
  • Rosie O'Donnell (Judge Madeline Summers) and Brooke Elliot (Jane/Deb) have worked together before. O'Donnell was the producer of the 2003 Broadway musical Taboo, in which Elliot was a featured performer.
