Meanwhile, Donna is disappointed to learn that Noah disdains the institution of marriage for himself. But later her spirits are lifted -- and her life literally saved -- by the wedding's caterer.

- ❝Kelly – How much doubt is too much?
- Jackie – Only you can answer that❞
- Just before the wedding that didn't happen, Jackie gives Kelly a locket that was given to Jackie's mother by Jackie's father. It has the inscription "Thoughts That Lie Too Deep For Tears," which Jackie identifies as a line being authored by William Wordsworth, one of the leading Romantic poets who lived from 1770-1850. This line actually reads,
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears
- It is the last line from Wordsworth's poem "Ode: Intimations of Immortality From Recollections of Early Childhood"
- Val mentions the saying, "Live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse." Though she says that this is something Jim Morrison said, it is actually attributed to '50s movie star James Dean, who died tragically in a car accident and most famously starred in Rebel Without a Cause.
