Did You Know?
At the end of the episode, when Mary's car dies on the railroad track, and she pushes it out of the way, she then sees an airplane fly over her, low to the ground, as if it had just taken off from the airport. In downtown Albuquerque, the only railroad tracks that run parallel to Interstate 40 (seen in the background) are just north of downtown, meaning Mary is facing south when she sees the plane fly over her from north to south. The airport is actually south of town, so any plane taking off would have flown from south to north. In addition, no jetliner would fly that low over that part of town after takeoff for safety reasons. See more
[to Trenna Morris during her intake meeting
Now then, I want you to understand something. This program is an opportunity very few people get. A shot at a fresh start, a do-over on your entire life. But it only works if you make the decision to be a better human being than you've been, and allow the possibility of something greater for yourself. And as impossible as it may seem, I've seen even bigger scumbags than you, do just that, and make it stick.
