Main Characters in this Episode
Mary Shannon: Help, every now and then, is something more than a four-letter word. Sometimes, it's just a baby crying for her sister from the confines of her crib. And sometimes, if you're lucky, help comes without asking, because somewhere nearby, there's someone who'd rather keep you from falling than help you up after you do.
Mary Shannon: Help, the absolute worst of the four-letter words, and the one I know best. A six-year-old on tiptoes, peering into Brandy's crib, my mother on the bedroom floor scrounging for the booze. That word coming out of their mouths as a gasp, like destiny, "Help." I've learned over time "Help" doesn't mean grab the other paint roller, or hold the ladder still. It means "Hey, I screwed up, now what're we going to do?" "Help," more than anything, is the not-so-subtle herald of the appearance of "we" - and don't even get me started on "happy to help."
- Goof (continuity error): When Ricky first gets punched and falls to the floor and Stan is talking to him, his arms are across his chest but when the camera pans out after Stan tells Ricky he's Arnie, Ricky's arms are lying on the floor, stretched out.
- Goof (factual errors): At the end when Marshall fields the call from Faber on Mary's BlackBerry, Marshall hits the end button and the phone goes to the home screen. The signal meter on the top right hand corner shows SOS written in red. BlackBerry phones can not receive calls when they are in SOS mode, only make calls to 911. Also, when the phone is ringing, the red status light always flashes. When Marshall is holding it, the low battery orange status light is flashing, not the red one indicating a phone call.
