The name of Melinda's store might be a reference to Jennifer Love Hewitt
also being a singer: Melinda's shop is called "Same As It Never Was". In 1999, Jennifer Love Hewitt
released a song called "How Do I Deal?", in which she sings the line "same as it ever was", a line which is also sung in the Talking Heads
song, "Once In A Lifetime". See more
In the episode The Prophet (2.21) Melinda states that Andrea died in a plane crash that occurred on May 11. May 11 is a big day for disasters, as it's mentioned numerous times. Later, in the episode Book of Changes (4.23), Andrea's name is followed with 8204, which reversed is supposed to be her date of death, which would be April 28, not May 11 as previously stated.
