  • In Rebecca's dream about Sam, the song "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers plays on the radio. She revealed in Please Mr. Postman that this is the "song that turned my knees to butter when I was a teenager and still does." (In that episode, the song was changed to "Unchained Melody" in syndication, presumably due to licensing issues. Here, the original song is retained.)
