Throughout the series, Alan Shore and Denny Crane sit on the balcony overlooking the city of Boston. However, during the cold winter months, you never see the breath of either character, thus demonstrating that the "balcony" is part of a set, and not an actual location.

Q
What brand of scotch do Denny and Alan drink?
A
It would appear from the look of the bottle, they drink Chivas Regal. However, its more likely that the bottle is simply there as a prop.I disagree. Chivas is a blend. These guys are single malt types. Neat; no ice, no water or soda. I only saw the bottle briefly; it is possibly Dalmore.Indeed, the Brand on the show is Balmoor but looking at the bottle more closely you will notice that is a Dalmore 12 year bottle complete with the deer mounting logo above the label. Since I myself have wondered about this for years I made it a point to confirm the above.Saw in one episode they were drinking from a bottle of Dimple.
Q
What happened to all of the women that used to costar on the show in the first season?
A
- Actress Lake Bell quit the show during season 1 to star in "Surface". After the show was cancelled, Bell did some guest appearances in Season 3.- Monica Potter quit due to her pregnancy
Q
Who are the firm's named partners?
A
Denny Crane (William Shatner), Edwin Poole (Larry Miller), and Shirley Schmidt (Candice Bergen). Hence Crane, Poole & Schmidt.
