Episode Notes
The crew was supposed to film the first scene a day later than it was scheduled, but when the crew saw the rain the decided to film it out on the street.

A scene where Vic kisses Cassidy goodnight was taken out of the show for time, but does set up him giving Corrine the divorce papers. You can find it on the Season 2 DVD.
