* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Somehow manages to pull this off while ''still being an active show producing new episodes.'' The cable deal they have is... not great. As in, good luck finding the episodes online. Or on DVD. Or on OWN, unless you're watching the original airing. Reruns are scarce, despite it being one of OWN's highest-rated shows. Lisa's not happy about it either.

** A couple years later, the ex-gay ministry featured in the episode, Exodus International, shut down after a chain of events that began with the episode. ''That'' smoothed things over quite nicely.

** Hit again in 'Labeled For Life'. And oh, why not, 'Incarceration Generation', concerning ex-prisoners in general.

* OffTheRails: Happened with the episode 'Pray The Gay Away?'. Lisa started out wanting to profile a summer camp in Minnesota for gay teenagers. Somewhere along the line, the final aired product became mostly about the ex-gay community, which believes prayer can turn a gay person straight, complete with episode title focusing on the latter. The summer camp didn't show up until late in the episode. The non-ex-gay community, which was under the impression that they'd thoroughly discredited the ex-gays by now, flipped their lid. It took Lisa quite a bit of time and energy, including an extra hour after the original airing devoted to discussing the episode they'd just aired, to mostly-but-still-not-entirely smooth things over
