Trivia Whenever Cuddy talks about her appointment with DYFS (Division of Youth and Family Services), she calls it D-Y-F-S, pronouncing each letter of the acronym. The administrator of a New Jersey hospital, or anyone else that deals with that state agency, would refer to it as "Dye-fiss," as if the letters spell an actual name. See more »
Goofs In this episode, about three quarters of the way into the show, Wilson gives Cuddy a giant stuffed duck as a gift for her new child. However, the duck is shown stuffed in a crib in Cuddy's house toward the end of the episode Joy (2008). See more »

Quotes Dr. Chris Taub: Just because you grew up in a Charles Dickens novel.
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: Well, it's people like me who don't do it. When your life sucks from the beginning, nowhere to go but up.
