Did You Know?
Michael Patrick King stated that the only thing they changed from the pilot is that Valerie's (Lisa Kudrow's) and Mark's (Damian Young's) sexual life is intense. They did change it, because they thought that among everything bad happening around her, a dead end sexual life would be too brutal for the character. They wanted the audience to know that "the character had love, but was choosing to walk in front of a train instead". See more
