  • This is the first episode of the series to not feature James Van Der Beek as protagonist Dawson Leery
  • This episode is chronologically the 5th episode of the season, but aired as the 9th due to the events of 11 September, 2001.
    • This is evident in Pacey's story featuring a very recent moment with Karen Torres, who left town in Hotel New Hampshire
