Carla's mother, Mama Lozupone, has had the "death" dream. She and Carla are currently on the outs since Carla has not stuck to family tradition that has been handed down for generations.

Just before Carla starts describing the "death dream", a man is seated at the bar in front of her, back to the camera, wearing a gray sweater. As she starts describing the dream, in shots towards the end of the bar where Frasier and Norm are seated, the profile of a woman's face is seen on the right edge of the screen. By the end of the scene, wide shots reveal a woman now seated at the bar.with a drink, when nobody has served her. A few seconds later, as Sam drags Carla out of the bar, nobody is sitting there.

Mama Lozupone: I didn't say I was sorry.
Carla Tortelli-LeBec: Well, then I'm not sorry either.
Mama Lozupone: Too late. I already accepted your apology.
Carla Tortelli-LeBec: Damn.
