This part was credited in the ABC Medianet press release for the episode , although the final cut of the episode as broadcast did not depict a speaking scene for this character.
In the casting call, the barfly was described as "Vickie, 30s-40s, any ethnicity, attractive. Charming, coy and knows how to get what she wants. Has spent a lifetime in bars and can read a guy better than he knows himself..."
She originally had six lines, but they were cut from the final episode.  The actress had previously been credited as playing a nurse in "Abandoned", though that scene was also seemingly cut.
