    Trivia (5)

    • According to this episode, the number 26 is the gematria (numerological equivalent) of the Hebrew Jehovah. In Hebrew, God's name is composed of 4 letters and contains no vowels. Because the translation is unknown, it is often referred to as the "tetragrammaton" (meaning 4 letters). Jehovah is the English translation of the divine name. Yahweh is another acceptable translation, especially in Jewish circles.

      Fibonacci Coding
      Numerology

    • Charlie's book is called The Attraction Equation: Being Popular is as Easy As Pi.

    • On the scene right before the break after Porter was arrested, the location of the next crime was being shown. If you look at the bottom right hand side of the screen, we would also see police about to raid the place.
