And I decided in that moment... that I would never lose anything again. So, I sat down in my room... and started remembering the way things were. Where Rachel and I kept our-our troll collection... pictures... the unicorn she won at the county fair that she said was half mine... Our mood-lighting scarf... all of it. Everything that had been in the room... down to the last book she read... the button that had fallen off the sleeve of the last coat she wore... everything.
    Roe: Wells, it's... it's like a novel, almost. Must be great. I mean, I've seen you in action. But it must suck sometimes, too, huh?
    Carrie: Yeah, sometimes.

Trivia (10)

  • Goof: Det. Saunders says about the murder weapon (a sculpture) that it belonged to the Postsurrealist movement of the 1920s. The Postsurrealism (or Postism) was born in Madrid in 1945 and lasted till 1950, and was a marginal art group.
    Saunders gets the date wrong since in the 1920s the movement wasn't born (what was born in the 20s is Surrealism itself)

  • Goof: In this episode, when ADA Gilroy arrives at the second crime scene, Carrie doesn't know who he is. He was also in the episode prior, where it is made obvious they have met before. It would seem that this episode and episode 3, Check out time, have changed places. This is not fixed on the DVD release, at least not on the Region 2 edition.

  • Marilu Henner has total recall of her life as the character Carrie Wells does. When studying for the part Poppy Montgomery met with her to find out how her memory worked. Poppy was very self conscious because she knew if she had some spinach on her teeth Marilu would remember it for the rest of her life.

  • Goof: When Carrie enters the interrogation room she sits on the right chair, next to the door. When the camera changes she is sitting on the left chair and Roe is sitting on the right one.

  • At the construction site, Al introduces himself as Lieutenant Burns instead of Detective Burns, which is the first time he uses the title of Lieutenant. He continues to call himself Lt. Burns in future episodes.

  • Upon hearing Steve's Shakespearean line, "There's a divinity that shapes our ends...," Carrie mistakingly attributes it to Romeo & Juliet when it is from Hamlet.

  • Goof: The Only time we see the real Morgan is lying dead in the van. All the moves by Jensen (aka Morgan) explain how all the anomalies, including the fingerprint conflict came to be except one. How did Carrie's DNA show up under the dead Morgan's fingernails? We see Carrie's "Unforgettable" flashback near the warehouse in which Jensen, posing as Morgan, scratched her hand when she tried to go after the shadowy figure she thinks may be Jensen.

  • When assassin Jackie is looking up an old newspaper clipping concerning an incident involving Carrie on her computer, you can see that the text of the story is just the same 2 or 3 paragraphs replicated and are put together in a random pattern that makes the story meaningless.
