    • (Diane is talking to Steve on the phone, ignoring Jake.) Jake: Well I guess I'm fine then. It's not like I was stabbed or anything. It's more like a slash, really, kinda like a big papercut. Except for the knife.

    • Jake: Yeah, sure put the fear of God into him. You should'a seen the bloodstain I left on his sleeve--that won't come out, you know.

    • (Jake's phone rings) Jake: Hey, Sarah. We're finally talking. Sarah: I know, just when I was starting to develop a relationship with your voice mail. Jake: Yeah, you guys are getting pretty close. Sarah: We are. He knows just when to beep. A little predictable though.

    • Vasily: Are you going to torture me, or are you just going to talk me to death? Kyle: We don’t torture prisoners in this county, no matter how much we wish to. Vasily: That’s a shame. I find the pain the most effective way of getting what you want.

    • Jake: Hey, it could happen to anybody. Diane: No, just anyone who allows themselves to be wined and dined and sold into white-scientist slavery.

    • Music: "Superhero", "Flamethrower," and "I'm Sorry" by Black Toast, and "Don't Be Surprised" by Kid Gloves.

    Trivia (2)

    • If you look closely at the screen in the bank, while Jake is using the computer behind the banker's back, you can see that where it says "Account Information," the work "account" is misspelled as "acount."

    • So why doesn't Jake do...well, anything to prove to Sarah he's telling the truth? Make a stoplight or all the streetlights blink on and off or something? Or why doesn't he show her his powers and then explain?
