    • Peter: I don't need your pity. Nathan: No, but you know what you do need? My help. I've been saving your ass my entire life. Peter: Is that so? Nathan: That's right. When you jumped off that roof like a moron? Who caught you? Who pulled you out of Kirby Plaza when you were about to blow up? You want my respect? You want my approval? Earn it! Peter: Why would I want your respect?! You're a puppet! Nathan: Excuse me? Peter: You've no spine. Nathan: I'm a U.S. senator, you're a nurse... Peter: No, you're everything Dad ever wanted you to be, his dreams, his goals. He'd always find a way to get under your skin and manipulate you, use you! Nathan: Where's this coming from? Peter: In the future, you choose him... you choose Dad, Nathan. Nathan: Well, I'm here right now, Pete... and I'm trying to stop him. Want to help me?

    • Peter: (about the Haitian) Think about it Nathan. The only way to get this guy to come back home with us is if we help him stop his brother. Look, if you're not going to do this for the right reasons, at least do it for the selfish ones.

    • Ando: This is your plan? She was right. We're all going to die. Hiro: No we're not. It's Wednesday. Ando: So? Hiro: New comic book day!

    • Ando: (about Hiro) He says this is part of the Hero's Quest. Can you triumph without powers?

    • (opening narration) Mohinder: There is a moment in every war where everything changes. A moment when the road bends. Alliances and battle lines shift. And the rules of engagement are rewritten. Moments like these can change the nature of the battle, and turn the tide for either side. So we do what we can to understand them. To be ready for change, we steady our hearts, curb our fears, muster our forces, and look for signs in the stars. But these moments, these game changes, remain a mystery. Destiny's invisible hand, moving pieces on a chessboard. No matter how much we prepare for them - how much we resist the change, anticipate the moment, fight the inevitable outcome - in the end, we are never truly ready when it strikes.

    • In the online graphic novel "Partners", Noah and Meredith track and capture another Level 5 escapee, Danny Pine - previously seen in the episode Vilains - and end their partnership, which explains why Noah is no longer teamed with Meredith in this episode.

    Trivia (3)

    • The Heroes title sequence begins a little differently in this episode; Mohinder and Arthur view the eclipse through a window, the camera zooms quickly towards the eclipse and the scene changes to the Heroes title sequence.

    • A total solar eclipse can be seen within a stripe of a maximum width of 273km only. There is no way, the (total) eclipse can be seen in Kansas and Haiti at the same time.

    • Several times in this episode we see a solar eclipse about to happen, and can clearly see both the sun and the moon. However, before a solar eclipse the sun is behind the moon and is much brighter, so you can not actually see the moon.
