    • When Charlie runs the test on his laptop to see who would be the key jurors to turn the rest of the jury, it shows the names in different orders. Initially it runs: 1. Linda Parker; 2. Roy Detchemendy; 3. Brian Callier; 4. David Johnson with jurors 5 thru 12 as Next juror. A second later the list reads as: 1. Alissa Kyria; 2. Linda Parker (which matches the hit he has); 3. Ashlee Blandings. Another second later the list reads the same as the first time, and the final listing reads: 6. Sara Lewis; 7. Rafael Lima; 8. Roy Detchemendy; (again, to match the hit he has) 9. Jordan Melvoin.

    • Alan Eppes: Was it developed by 12 angry mathematicians? This is a reference to the 1954 Studio One episode, "Twelve Angry Men", written by Reginald Rose and directed by Franklin Schaffner, with Bob Cummings as Juror #8. It was later adapted for the big screen in the 1957 Sidney Lumet film, 12 Angry Men, starring Henry Fonda as Juror #8. Still considered an American classic in all its forms, the story surrounds a murder trial where a man's life depends upon one juror convincing the rest of the jury that the accused man is innocent. Although, unlike here, right is on the side of Juror #8.

    • The administration password used by the hacker is LeonardSheldon4A. Leonard and Sheldon are the names of the two main characters on the CBS show The Big Bang Theory and 4A is the number of the apartment they live in.
