    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The magazine that Simon holds in his hands in this episode can also be seen in other episodes. In the past, that magazine was known for its weird stories.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Marshall: The bait had been taken. I was sure the dollar bill was being drawn to some evil source. I was half right. I found myself starring straight in to the muzzle of Eerie's notorious biker gang; The Unkind Ones.

      • Marshall: Eerie Indiana, day 94. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to lose stuff here. I mean stuff that was there a minute ago would just vanish the moment you turn your back. Gone, disappeared, lost forever. I figure, Eerie is caught in some electromagnetic vortex that messes up the tracking system we humans use to find stuff. Funny, but it seems to be hitting Dad the hardest.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • The Liberty Bell: Yet another item in the Bureau of Lost, The Liberty Bell can be seen if you look hard enough while they're panning through.

      • Titanic: Another item in the Bureau of Lost is a life preserver with "H.M.S. Titanic" inscribed on it.

        Something that was truly "lost," having a life preserver from the Titanic is not just a nod at the impressive ship that sank in 1912, but also shows that the Bureau has the ability to get objects from just about anywhere.

      • Citizen Kane: One of the items seen in the Bureau of Lost is a wooden sled with "Rosebud" on it.

        This is a nod to the 1941 Orson Welles movie, Citizen Kane, in which one of the most notable objects is a wooden sled called "Rosebud."

      • Lost Item Repository: In many cultures, when something is lost it's believed to have gone to some strange place.

        Often times people claim that laundry machines "eat" their clothes. Or if they firmly assert that the 'box of mystery' under the bed was where they always kept their valuables.
