Trivia: Brennan and Booth go undercover in this episode as "Buck" and "Wanda," an engaged couple. These are the same undercover names they used in "Double Trouble in the Panhandle."
Angela and Hodgins named their son Michael Staccato Vincent Hodgins, although in "The Killer in the Crosshairs" Hodgins earned the right not to use any part of his father-in-law's dreamt name, "Staccato Mamba."
When Bones is showing Vincent how the victim sustained his injuries by physical example she says, "You are Mr. Leishenger and I am his attacker. Broadsky is an expert in close quarter combat." Vincent then replies, "I assume that I will be dead very soon then." This is clearly a subtle foreshadow of what is to come later on in the episode.
When Brennan recalls that Vincent's favorite song was "Da Lime in Da Coconut", Sweets's response is "Seriously? Because that's my jam." In the episode "The Body in the Bag," Sweets is shown working out to this song on his headphones. He also mentions in "The Passenger in the Oven" that he's going to sing it for karaoke.
When Brennan goes into Booth's room in the middle of the night the clock shows it is 4:47, this is the exact same time shown on the clock next to Booth's bed in the first scene of the 4th season finale, "The End in the Beginning." This is also the time that the clock in the victim's apartment continuously flashes in "The Beginning in the End."
Hodgins' Mini in the scene after he and Angela leave the hospital isn't displaying the required front license plate.
Goof: The titanium alloys usually used for orthopedic and dental implants is relatively pure, so Hodgins would not be able to find it using the magnetic gloves as titanium is not magnetic.
Just before Wally dives in the water, you can see that there is a face painted on his oxygen tank. The image is very similar to Hart Hanson, creator of the show.
During a conversation in the car, Brennan and Booth talk about Lee Coleman and Brennan does not know who he was. Booth says Bones doesn't have a TV. She says she does, but it is in the closet. This might give the impression that she is not watching TV at all (stated many times in previous episodes). It was well established earlier this season, however, in the Maggots in the Meathead that Bones watched a "documentary" or rather reality show about a subculture of "Guidos."
Goof: When Vincent is apologizing to Brennan, she walks away and is seen standing with her back to Vincent. In the next shot (with Brennan close-up) she is obviously facing Vincent.
Goof: Angela claims to have boosted the audio-recording above the Nyquist-frequency. On the one hand this is very unlikely since most digital-cameras use some sort of video and audio-compression, so frequencies a human can not hear would not have been recorded by the camera. On the other hand, the Nyquist-frequency is the resolution-limit of a frequency-based encoding of an audio-sample, which actually says, the sampling-frequency must be at least the double of the maximum frequency to be properly encoded (Shannon-theorem: f_s >= 2 * f_Nyquist). Therefore, even boosting the recording as Angela claims would not reveal any extra audio-information since it would simply not have been recorded.
The establishing shot of the fictional University of Hogansburg is in fact the Valley Life Sciences Building at UC Berkeley.
This is the first time Bones never worked on a single bone. This is also the first time she did not step one foot into the Jeffersonian during a murder.
Joseph is Seeley Booth's middle name.
Angela changed the name her father gave her (which was "Mouse") because she hated it. (In season three she said that she legally changed her name on her 18th birthday after the name 'Angela Montenegro' came to her in a dream.)
In the beginning, Taffet is talking to Sweets and she mentions that he is to testify at her appeal. But an appellate court does not hear testimony, only trial courts take testimony.
Booth's supposedly record-holding shot of "over a kilometer" (over 0.62 miles) would be considered unexceptional in the real world. Modern snipers regularly and successfully operate at that range, and (as of the episode's air-date) the record for the longest confirmed kill made by a sniper is 2.475 kilometers, or a little over 1.5 miles.
When Sweets is working out in the beginning of the episode, he's listening to "Coconut" by Harry Nilsson. This foreshadows the episode "The Hole in the Heart" when the song has a more prominent role.
The paper that Bones is holding in the elevator shows the zip code for Washington, D.C. as 20014 when in fact there is no such Zip Code. There is a 20013 and a 20015 however.
175-180 centimeters does not correlate to 5'8-5'9, more like 5'9-5'11.
