"Y’all been sleeping on my boy Miguel. Miguel gets no love." Toby Damon (A Manny-Splendored Thing)
- Toby's heart attack in season 1 was planned by producers to happen right before the Christmas break, to fulfill the request of the NBC executives.
- In S3E6, it is revealed Toby deals with major depression. This same episode shares a sampling of his backstory. He was in a serious funk from his last relationship before he attended an Overeaters Anonymous and met Kate Pearson. He has dealt with difficulties in his life with humor from an early age. His parents Mr. & Mrs. Damon (played by Dan Lauria and Wendi Malick) are negative people.
