* In "Poking Holes in the Story," Virginia laments that she's always wondered if Burt stayed with her for her or because of the baby, and if she held him back from something bigger in life, not knowing the Burt is listening. [[spoiler: Burt admits that he poked a hole in the condom so that she would get pregnant because he was so in love with her and afraid she would leave '''him''' otherwise.]]

** The way the whole story was brought full circle with Virginia's dad coming to stay with them and mend his relationship with her.

* Burt's HappyPlace includes a harem of beautiful women...all of whom are his wife, Virginia. Earlier in the series, he'd said that she's the only one for him, and that if she died, he wouldn't date or hook up with anyone else or remarry.

--> '''Virginia''': That's very sweet, but it's not Mother-in-Law's Day; it's Mother's Day. You should give that to your mother.
--> '''Sabrina''': Over the last few years, you have been more of a mother to me than my mother ever was. I want you to have this.
--> '''Virginia''': I see what you're doing, and it's very sweet, but--
--> '''Sabrina''': What's my favorite color? What is it?
--> '''Virginia''': Orange.
--> '''Sabrina''': And you know that because?
--> '''Virginia''': Because, for your wedding, you and I spent two days driving to every supermarket in town buying all the orange flowers.
--> '''Sabrina''': And how did I chip my tooth?
--> '''Virginia''': You thought you could skateboard drunk on Cinco de Mayo. And you not only chipped your tooth, you sprained your ankle.
--> '''Sabrina''': And when did I start walking again?
--> '''Virginia''': Three days later on Ocho de Mayo.

Added DiffLines:

* Burt wants Jimmy to continue working with him instead of going to work at Howdy's, but also realizes that Hope needs medical insurance so he swallows his pride and takes a second job with a much-hated former boss so that he can continue working with his son while properly providing for his granddaughter.
