  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: When Graham is scanning the various body temperatures, they're ALL 98.6°, except for Spike. While 98.6° is roughly average, peoples' temperatures will vary by a degree or two as a matter of course; the chances of finding three people all at exactly 98.6° is pretty slim. Then, when he gets to Spike, Spike reads 62.3°, which Graham announces is "exactly room temperature". First, there's no such thing as "exactly room temperature", as different standards put it at different temperatures, typically varying from 68 to 77° Fahrenheit. Second, a temperature of 62.3° would be noticeably cool, and would not be considered a normal room temperature, much less "exactly room temperature".
