** Later in that same sequence, Debbie tells Steve and the others, "I'm telling you, that girl doesn't want you tugging at her bra strap. She wants drama, she wants mystery, she wants excitement," and we immediately cut to Linda, who says, "I don't want drama, I don't want excitement, I just want to trust (Steve)."

* RecycledTheSeries: Ultimately averted, as Crowe felt that turning ''Singles'' into a series was a poor idea. The production company decided, rather than giving up on the notion, to retool the concept and gave the central characters tweaked personalities, altered some of the interpersonal relationships, transplanted the show to [[BigApplesauce New York City]], and changed the name to ''{{Friends}}''.



-->'''Steve:''' Games? If I was playing games, I would have waited a week to call you. ({{Beat}}) What I meant to say is...
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Counting the ways:
** Grunge and alt-rock is everywhere.
** Flannel is practically a dress code requirement (although somewhat TruthInTelevision in Seattle to this day).
** The dating service that Debbie uses involves VHS tapes instead of any variety of video disc or the Internet.
** Reference is made to building airplanes, as Boeing used to be by far the largest employer in the Seattle area (Boeing since has left the area; tech companies such as Creator/{{Nintendo}}, {{Microsoft}}, and Amazon are the local heavyweights now).
** Steve's friend David storing phone numbers on his watch, as opposed to a cell phone.
