* SevenMinuteLull: The first half of ''Living Together'' ends with Norman making a drunken phone call to Ruth while Reg is trying to explain his board game to Sarah, Annie, and Tom. The rules discussion dies down several times just as Norman forgets Reg's instruction to keep his voice down, leading the four players to be startled by such outbursts as, "I SAID YOU ARE A SELFISH BITCH!" and "LOVE!? WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT LOVE?!"
