Trivia The company town of Empire, Nevada is a real place that was owned by US Gypsum. In 2011, US Gypsum closed the mine, and subsequently, the town with it. Workers and their families were allowed five months of continued residency in their company-owned homes after the closure. The zip code would even later be discontinued as Empire became a ghost town.

Goofs Swankie says she has the book "Final Exit", by Jack Kevorkian. Although it may have been a deliberate error and could be incorrectly regarded as a goof, the book was written by Derek Humphry. He makes some references to Kevorkian and even has a chapter on him, but Kevorkian did not write or help write the book. See more »

Quotes Bob: One of the things I love most about this life is that there's no final goodbye. You know, I've met hundreds of people out here and I don't ever say a final goodbye. I always just say, "I'll see you down the road." And I do. And whether it's a month, or a year, or sometimes years, I see them again.
