    • Iron Man: Next time somebody tries to take on the Avengers, (Laughs) they should know better then to send in their flunkies.

    • Hawkeye: No sign of our mystery ship, huh? Ant-Man: I've got a feeling we'll know when they arrive. Patience, Hawkeye. Hawkeye: That's not exactly one of my virtues.

    • Falcon: Hey, do you think Ultron's behind all this? Ant-Man: Ultron would've let us know by now. He likes to brag too much.

    • Ant-Man: Sikorsky, that's three fallen satellites in two hours. What's going on up there? Sikorsky: We don't know, but at this rate every satellite up there could be knocked out in nine hours. Everyone thinks their city's next. Tigra: Boy, Sikorsky you're just full of good news, aren't you?

    Notes (5)

    • The members of the Zodiac: are Taurus, Scorpio, Gemini, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Aquarius, Libra, Leo, Virgo, and Pisces.

    • We get a glimpse of the Zodiac's plan to use twelve conjunctions of the stars to activate the "Zodiac key", an ancient relic.

    • The Quinjet's call sign is "QJ-1".

    • Ant-Man makes a reference to Tony Stark's heart condition. In the comics, this was a piece of shrapnel. In the "Ultimates" (the Ultimate universe version of the Avengers), the heart condition was replaced by a brain tumor.

    • The Scarlet Witch refers to her teacher, Agatha Harkness, who appears in episode 11.

    Allusions (1)

    • Vision: None (riding a missile towards its target)
      Vision riding the missile towards its target is a reference to Slim Pickens doing the same thing in "How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb."
