- Actor-Shared Background: Sort of; Amy Brenneman's mother and father were a Connecticut Superior Court judge and a lawyer, respectively.
- The Character Died with Him: When Richard Crenna, who played Maxine's on-again, off-again boyfriend Jared, died of cancer, his character was written off by having him die of a heart attack in the episode "Requiem". Likewise, Tara Correa-McMullen, who played gang member Graciela Reyes, was killed in an act of gang violence during her storyline. The writers adapted this to the show by saying that Graciela had been killed by rival gang members while she was in juvenile detention.
- The Danza: Amy Brenneman as Amy Gray.
