This episode marks the departure of VJ Patterson.
VJ Patterson’s departure results in the longest-running child born on the series to leave, with the character appearing continuously on-screen for sixteen years.
Reference to Alex Poulos – Leah initially planned to stay with him in the city for a few days after seeing off VJ. Danny Raco, who played Alex, directed the episode.
