  • Quotes (5)

    • Simon: Do you know how it feels to be burdened with something that makes it impossible for you to relate to another person? That makes you feel completely alone in the world? Olivia: I can imagine.

    • Olivia: (about the Other Side's Olivia) She's like me but better. Nina: Oh, Olivia... Olivia: No, I mean she still has her mother and, she wasn't experimented on as a child. And she can laugh, she has real friends... she even wears a dress once in a while.

    • Walter: Why would anyone kill a scientist? What'd we ever do? Peter: Really?

    • Walter: I feel nauseated. Peter: Yeah, this is pretty disgusting, even by our standards. Walter: I'm not talking about the body. I fear I may have broken wind inside my suit.

    • Astrid: You used to work for President Nixon? Walter: It was uncomfortable. His wife kept coming on to me.

    Trivia (5)

    • Trivia: Walter focuses on Volkswagen Beetles. This is a clue toward the next episode, "Immortality."

    • When Olivia approaches the body of Dillon just after shooting him through the neck, a large pool of blood is already forming around his head. Just seconds later we see an overhead view of Olivia and the body, and there is no longer any blood pool.

    • One of the thoughts that Simon gets from Downey's mind is "Project Jellyfish." The Fringe team is looking for information on a project and that's the only project on the list. However, they don't think it's important to investigate until they realize the significance of jellyfish. The reasonable course would be to start an investigation into Project Jellyfish as soon as they see the word "Project," since they're looking for a project.

    • Trivia: The Observer can be seen in the overhead establishing shot of the fundraiser, entering through the door at the top of the screen.

    • Trivia: The glyph code for this episode is HATCH.
