Trivia

When Susan Saint James became pregnant during the show's fourth season, it was not written into the show because her character was single. She was filmed either with strategically placed props or by having her character Kate recovering from a broken leg. However, in a flashback episode that took place when Kate and Allie were younger and they were pregnant with their daughters on the show, St. James was allowed to show her pregnancy. See more »

Quotes

Kate McArdle: Let me tell you something about your father, Emma. He may not always be there for you like some fathers are. But when he is, it's parades and skyrockets. Cherish every moment because he's one of a kind and he loves you so much.

Allison Smith
30 January 2007 | by nhfotofreakSee all my reviews

I love Kate & Allie but I really love Allison Smith. Not only as Jennie Lowell, but anything the girl does! I would really love to see Kate & Allie put back on the air so that I can enjoy more Allison! You gotta admit...she can not only sing but she's great all the way around! And the episodes where she sings...melt my heart! My favorite episode is where she sings "Goodbye To You" to Howard. Remember that one? She can sing to me anytime! And the one where Allie works for that TV station and Allison sings "Tomorrow" 150 times! Loved every last one! Laughed so hard and then fell apart when Allison started to sing. WOW! Anyway, just wanted to not only express my love for Kate & Allie but especially Allison Smith. Love ya, Allison! NHFOTOFREAK!
