Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The inventive spelling of the title reads somewhat silly in Norwegian and Danish since the Ø in broken is a letter in the alphabet in these languages and sounds like the "u" in "burden". In addition "brøken" is the Norwegian and Danish word meaning "the fraction". See more »
Goofs When talking about the case of Situs Inversus, she says "It's not uncommon... but it is rare." See more »

Crazy Credits If the music played during the first half of the closing credits sounds a bit off, that's because it's being played backwards. See more »
Quotes [Kate and Gina are kneeling down to sweep up the large mirror that suddenly broke during dinner while the men of the family stand by and watch them]
Kate Coleman: [Quietly to Gina] I guess that's seven years back luck then.
Gina McVey: [mischievously whispering] I thought it was seven years bad sex.
Kate Coleman: No, I've already had that.
Daniel McVey: Oi, I heard that.
Kate Coleman: [smiling up at her husband] Baby, that was before I met you.
[John, Gina and Kate's father, is apparently oblivious to the entire by-play that's occurred and preoccupied by the broken mirror]
John McVey: Do you think we can fix it?
