Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The death at the top of the episode tells us that the dates of the deceased are 1909-2005, making her 96 (or 95 if her birthday hadn't yet taken place that year).

- This marks the first time - after 5 years - that Rachel Griffiths and 'Mathew St Patrick' actually shared a scene of any great depth.
- This episode focuses on Nate turning 40. Writer Craig Wright was celebrating his own 40th birthday at the time of writing.
- The surprise party was shot over a period of 5 days with 13 actors.
