  • We've come to expect rather more of Fringe and justifiably so.

  • Quotes (8)

    • Olivia: You abused us, Walter. Me and other children. Walter: No, we were trying to help you. We were trying to make you more than you were. Olivia: Is that what you were doing? Or searching for answers to questions you shouldn't have been asking in the first place? Walter: I was a different man then. Olivia: I was a defenseless child.

    • Olivia: So what are the odds of something like this occurring naturally? Walter: Oh, it's possible. But if so, God has a far more disturbed sense of humor than even I could have imagined.

    • Astrid: Walter, I don't think I can do this. I've seen some pretty disturbing things in my time working with you, and I think I've handled them pretty well. But this... I can't do.

    • Astrid: All right, so what am I looking for? Walter: Anything that looks like it doesn't belong. Astrid: I think this qualifies. Richard Nixon on a silver dollar. Walter: That's disturbing.

    • Olivia: I failed. I failed and I'm supposed to be the one who can stop things like this. Peter: Olivia. You--I've never met anyone who can do the things that you do.

    Notes (5)

    • Injoke: The combination to the padlock, which Walter says that William Bell uses for everything, is 5-20-10. This was the original air date of the season 2 finale, May 20, 2010.

    • Injoke: The transitioned building is the Zelazny Building, named after famed author Roger Zelazny. Many of Zelazny's works revolve around parallel dimensions and travel between realities.

    • While uncredited for this episode, Leonard Nimoy's voice can be heard as William Bell on the video recordings of the experiments he and Walter Bishop conducted on Olivia when she was a child.

    • Music: The Firebird Suite (Igor Stravinksy)

    Trivia (4)

    • Trivia: In the scene with Peter and Olivia sit at the swing talking about "freakishly good memory," you can see some of the glyphs on the wall behind him: the seahorse, the flower, the hand, the butterfly, and the frog.

    • Trivia: In the opening sequence, the 3D graphic text for MANHATTAN is spelled "MANHATAN." Also, Ted Pratchett is working on blueprints for "Pentagon Annex IV" and drinking "real coffee." When one of his coworkers comments about this, Pratchett says that he gets his secret coffee stash from a cousin in Hawaii. In prior dealings with the alternate universe, it has been suggested that there is a "blight" which affects the other universe and its plant life. This adds up to indicate that the initial sequence is set in the alternate universe, not the "real" one.

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

    • Trivia: The Observer can be seen walking in front of a fire truck at night, at the building disaster right before the Fringe team arrives on the scene. He's to the left of the Ian Thomas/Production Designer credit.

    Allusions (1)

    • Brandon: Yeah, yeah, yeah, Raiders of the Lost Ark. The bag of sand and the idol. Referencing the 1981 movie featuring Indiana Jones, an archaeologist adventure seeking the lost Ark of the Covenant. In the opening sequence, Jones attempts to steal an idol on a weight-sensitive plate by swiftly and smoothly replacing it with a bag of sand of the same weight.
