This episode is reasonably the first indication of Louis's and Tawny's deepening, perhaps loving, relationship. It's heavily implied that Tawny, given her inclinations to drama, gives up a huge opportunity to attend a prestigious school of the arts in order to stay at Lawrence Junior High with Louis. Also, the song played during Louis's and Tawny's video exchange in "Leavin' Stevens," which actually confirms that they're in love with each other, is first played in this episode during Louis's and Tawny's last exchange - further foreshadowing their growing relationship.

Oh, I remember this one time, he ate so many plums, his mouth turned as purple as the hydrangeas in Grandma's window box... How could he just disappear like that, leavin' me nothin' but a hole in my heart? I never even got a chance...to say goodbye! ...
