  • Trivia

    • The reason why Marisa Richardson never moved her hands in questioning, its because she was handcuffed behind her back.

    • Goof: When Reed gives Mac a hug at the end, Reed's arms go from being low across Mac's arms to around his shoulders between shots.

    • When Adam uses the RFID credit card scanner, it picks up on some of Danny's identification. Danny's Discerna credit card number is 3400 6776 411 38 and expires on 02/10. His Fidelity Mutual Bank card is 0234 1883 172 11 and expires 04/2011. His driver's license number is J65 385 969 issued by the DMV in New York and expires 10/21/11. His social security number is 934-182-909. All four are issued in the name of Danny Messer.

    • It is revealed that Adam's dad was a bully and he may have been abused as a child.

    • Nitpick: Despite what is claimed in this episode, there is no evidence to support absinthe causing hallucinations.

      Edit: Many years ago absinthe used to contain wormwood, which DID cause hallucinations (sometimes death). This is why absinth with wormwood is no longer legal.

      Edit: Wormwood is the key ingredient(and namesake) of absinthe and it is still used to make modern day absinthe (for example Bohemian style Absinth from the Czech Republic which closely resembles the tradition form). Wormwood in a pure form is poisonous causing kidney failure, however in proper dosage it is not harmful and is most commonly used as stomach medicine not to mention its use in vermouth and some wines. There is no evidence that absinthe or even wormwood cause hallucinations.

    • Goof: When reviewing the list of stolen items, Danny says that all the items are worth four figures or more, but one item is only worth $950.

    • This episode, including the news story plot line, is identical to the movie The Skulls, which followed the death of a college journalist who was trying to expose the society. Hill Harper played the role of the murdered journalist.

    • Mac: What is a fraternity hazing gone bad?

      A popular reference to Jeopardy in which contestants have to answer questions in question form.

    • Reed: I got my first 'Geraldo'.

      A reference to talk-show host Geraldo Rivera who had his nose broken in a well-publicized brawl during a 1988 show.

    • It's mentioned that the motive for Brian's murder is a standard college regulation that specifies that a student whose roommate commits suicide or otherwise dies out of a violent death automatically receives a 4.0 grade point average for the current school term.

      This is an urban legend (which has a number of variations) that was part of the plot of two 1998 movies, Dead Man on Campus and Dead Man's Curve, along with episode 252/12-4 of The Simpsons, Lisa the Tree-Hugger, episode 2/1-2 of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Art and C.S.I.'s episode Up In Smoke.

    • Danny: Shopgirl's got it down to a science.

      Shopgirl is the title of a 2005 movie starring Claire Danes and Steve Martin. Martin also wrote the screenplay.

    • Episode title: Some Buried Bones.

      The title of the episode and the plot of a secret society on the campus of a college make a refrence to the "Skull and Bones" society, a secret organization that exists at Yale University, which has supposedly had such members as George H.W. Bush. Also "Skull and Bones" meets in a building known as "The Tomb" and the society in this episode meets in "The Crypt."
