Did You Know?


Book editor Susie Bright appears as herself in this episode. The original intention was that it should be singer Joni Mitchell but producer Alan Poul nixed the idea as Mitchell was too recognizable a personality. See more »


In the episode where Nate's first lover Fiona dies, he says that he was 15 and she was 32. However, Fiona's birth year was listed as 1952, and Nate was born in 1965, which means that when he was 15 she would have been around 28. See more »


Nate Fisher: Well, you know, love isn't something you feel, it's something you do. If the person you're with doesn't want it, you know, do yourself a favor and save it for someone who does.

While hiking with Sarah in the Topang Canyon, Fiona Lenore Kleinschmidt stumbles and falls over a cliff. David and Keith have troubles with Durrell and Anthony. Ruth leaves George alone in his apartment, and celebrates with Sarah and her friends smoking pot and drinking wine during the funeral of Fiona. Claire finds a job in a conservative company, and her coworkers seem to be very friendly. Brenda is worried with Billy, and her brother keeps going to her house bothering Nate and her missing Claire. Vanessa hires a maid from Canada, but she has problems with the attitude of the girl, and in the end she invites Rico to return home. George understands that his relationship with Ruth has ended.

In this episode, the unbalanced Billy returns to his medications and misses Claire, who is insecure whether she is an artist or not. Nate recalls his first sexual intercourse with Fiona. David unexplainably insists in keeping the troubled boys against Keith will. I hope the dysfunctional and insecure Ruth ends this series alone in a shelter for elders, since I really hate this character. In the end, it seems that things go wrong because there is evil in the world. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Prece aos Anjos" ("Prayer to the Angels")
