Notes

  • RUNTIME: 48:01
  • SHOOTING DATE: around Thursday 01st December 1994
  • So this is the final episode. :-(
  • The first draft of the script for this episode was finished on December 9th, 1994 (blue script), followed by three revisions and the final script (December 15th, 1994).
  • The episode was shot between December 12th and 22nd, 1994.
  • Winnie Holzman dedicated the script "to the brilliant, beautiful cast and crew".
  • She also added a Shakespeare quote: "How far that little candle throws his beams!" (first page of the script)
  • And here are some excerpts from the original script. See what Winnie Holzman wrote:
        After Angela kisses Jordan "fiercely":
    REVEAL: Brian. Nearby. Watching. Hating them. And himself. 
    FADE OUT
    After Brian says "...who wrote it.":
    "Angela leans closer, they look into each other's eyes with a kind of...
    surprise.  Time is momentarily suspended as they simply see each other,
    however fleetingly, in a brand new way.  And then--" to Jordan coming into
    the picture.
    
  • And now the very, very final scene in MSCL according to the original script:
       BRIAN (very quietly) See ya.
    Jordan and Angela arrive at his car.
    Jordan opens the door.  Angela steals one last look at BRIAN 
    before she disappears into the car. Jordan gets in after her. 
    And they drive off.
    To look for Tino.
    FADE OUT
    THE END
