    • The final scene of this episode is clearly a recreation of events that Booth and Brennan recalled in the 100th episode, "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole." In both episodes, Booth and Brennan are talking outside of a bar-type establishment after having some drinks, and to Booth's dismay Brennan takes a cab home, leaving Booth behind as she looks at him through the back window of the cab. The cab number is even the same in both episodes -- 5260. Additionally, the future of their partnership is being seriously threatened in both episodes.
