Episode Quotes
Jones: You an oxy guy? You look like an oxy guy.
Hank: Uh, no. Actually, I had brain surgery.

Divya: Should we be worried about him (Evan)?
Hank: Who's "we"? You're the one taking him to Italy. Lots of luck.

Paige: This weekend? Gee, Evan, I'm pretty busy with Russell.
Evan: Well, I have a feeling it will all work out somehow. I mean we're talking Italy here, right? We're talking Tuscany. It's like my dream trip.
Paige: Our dream trip, which we are now taking with Divya?
Evan: Yeah, genius touch by the way.
Paige: Huh?
Evan: Oh, nothing. Nothing at all.

Hank: Molly, take one of these hydrocodone. It'll help.
Molly O'Shea: Okay.
Don O'Shea: That's your prescription. Good thing you didn't kick the habit, huh?

Evan: You called me a ninny.
Divya: I'm stressed too.
Evan: Why? Why are you stressed? Your mom took the fact you're having a baby so well.
Divya: Yes, and all I have to do is have a baby.
Evan: Well, hold on a second. Are you worried about being a mom?
Divya: Of course not. A single woman having her first child... what on earth do I have to be worried about?

Divya: I do know that you thrive on drama. Excess, extremes. It's like good is never good enough. You're married to a beautiful, talented Saint of a woman. Your starter home is a castle. Relax and enjoy it.
Evan: I know. Look, everything should be good. Why is it so hard?

Shelby Shackelford: Molly's pretty upset.
Hank: Yeah, well, it was a pretty serious situation out there for both of them.
Shelby Shackelford: Yeah. She's saying some pretty serious things about you too.
Hank: About me?
Shelby Shackelford: She said you gave her a narcotic that was prescribed to you. She also says that you've been on those pills for a while. Hank, the police want you to submit to a tox screen, and I told them that wouldn't be a problem. It isn't a problem, is it?
Hank: Of course not.

Episode Goofs
The position of the car relative to the well changes. Divya stops the car short of the well to let Evan out.

In the next shot, the car is pulled almost even with the well.

Cultural References
Divya: Molto freddo?
Evan: Yeah. It means very cool. Unless it's Molto Frodo. No, no, no. Frodo's a hobbit.

Frodo is indeed the name of a hobbit, a character in J.R.R. Tolkien's book The Lord of the Rings.

Episode References
Divya: Mama, I had a fling.
Evan: With a famous polo player and underwear model. Same guy.

Divya and Evan are referring to Rafa, whom Divya first met in episode 4x10, Who's Your Daddy?
