Before migrating to Montreal, Mackie was a regular on the Vancouver spoken word scene and actually lived for a while as Diane's tenant. Mackie and Duncan used to hang out together, and near the end of the show S.R. springs a Christmas Christmas anecdote on Diane about one fated holiday the three spent together several years ago.
