In the Alternate Timeline created by Max Caulfield, Max finds a letter addressed to Joyce by Dorothy. In the letter she apologizes for not being able to help Joyce and her family immediately on account of problems with paying her own medical bills. She acknowledges that the situation with Chloe was one she couldn't possibility imagine and thanked Joyce for keeping her updated on Chloe's condition. She ends her letter with the request that Joyce give Chloe a hug and her "best wishes" in her absence.
- "Aunt Dorothy" is believed to be a reference to L. Frank Baum's Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz.
