* In an episode of ''Series/JustShootMe'' there is a small saga surrounding the phrase "Sometimes on the way to your dreams, you get lost and find something better". Maya's father is the first one to say it to her, and it is repeated later in the episode by a man who explains that he read it written on the wall of a brothel. At the end of the episode, Maya repeats it herself and Elliott confusedly remembers that he wrote that same saying on a wall somewhere.

When she comes back to the graffiti a few days later, dozens of people have added messages agreeing with her.
