Goof: The dead man in the storage room, in the subway, moves his cheek when being sprayed on the face with the foam used by the Hazmat guy.
Goof: When the lightning strikes Denise and she falls to the ground, her right eye is clearly visible. When the camera angle closes in, it's no longer visible as it was badly damaged by the lightning. After Charlie faints, the camera goes back to Denise and her right eye is visible again.
Hood: That's liquid mercury.
Goof: Mercury is only found in liquid form. It's one of the six elements that are liquid at room temperature and pressure. It can't be found in nature in any other state.
Minamata disease is a neurological syndrome caused by severe mercury poisoning. Its symptoms are numbness in hands and feet, muscle weakness and narrowing of the field of vision. It was first discovered in Minamata City, Japan in 1956. It was caused by the release of methyl mercury by a chemical factory. The metal accumulated in the fish and shellfish in Minamata Bay and when it was eaten by the locals it resulted in mercury poisoning. More than 1,700 people died.
Goof: The group dons gas masks when opening the suspect late-model refrigerator from the bottom of the lake but did nothing to isolate it when it was opened, resulting in a mercury spill on the dock.
Goof: At the end of the episode, Dr. Hood says that the lake would soon enough cleanse itself of the mercury contamination; in fact the effects from heavy metal contamination would remain for quite some time.
Rachel: Don't tell me you're going to build some kind of bomb with champagne and baking soda?
Hood: Rachel, I'm a scientist. I'm not MacGyver. Shoot the lock.
MacGyver is a television series about the secret agent Angus MacGyver, who solved problems using his practical application of physical knowledge and inventive use of common items. He was played by Richard Dean Anderson and the series ran from 1985 to 1992.
Goof: The name of the Montana town is spelled incorrectly. It should be spelled Lewistown instead of Lewiston.
Hood: Well, I'm saying that the most logical explanation is usually the right one.
Hood is referring to what is called Ockham's razor, a principle attributed to English logician William of Ockham. It states that the explanation of any phenomenon should make as few assumptions as possible. The principle is most often expressed as Entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity; however, it's most common variation is Of two equivalent theories or explanations, all other things being equal, the simplest one is to be preferred.
Goof: When Hood is testing the water, he is wearing protective gloves, but doesn't remove them before using his computer. If he'd picked up any contaminant on the gloves, he would have spread it to his keyboard. Gloves are always removed between performing tasks.
Goof: When Hood takes a space shuttle tile in his hands he says that it's strong enough to withstand g-force. He should have said how many g-forces because g-force is equal to approximately 9.8 [Newton] and this is the usual force of earth's gravity.
Goof: In the ambulance after the two boys received electric shocks by defibrillator and didn't respond one of the paramedics said that it was time to call the time of death. Only medical doctors can call a time of death and not paramedics, they should have continued trying to revive the patients until their arrival to the hospital where only doctors could decide if the bodies are dead or not.
Goof: As Hood is mixing stuff together at Owen's birthday party, Rachel and Owen walk up to see whats going on. Rachel is tossing the football she gave Owen for his birthday back and forth in her hands. Right before the scene cuts away as she passes it to her right hand, a black box appears in it. Next, when you see Owen he has the football and Rachel has her phone in her right hand and purse in the left. She reaches into the purse right before the phone rings but already has the phone in her hand. In the next second, the purse is gone and she answers the phone. However, the screen does not light up when the phone is ringing or when she answers it.
Before Rachel was assigned as Hood's handler, she spent 6 months in Kabul, Afganistan as an FBI component of Task Force Eagle.
Rachel: I absolutely love that for once you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Goof: In the previous episode, Frozen, Hood asks a student if there is a T3 connection in the building. So he should have known what Rachel was talking about.
When the doctor is monitoring the chimp during the obstacle course you can see at the bottom of the screen the tell tale signs of the Operating System. He is using a Linux OS with a Gnome GUI.
Goof: When the chimp is traversing the obstacle course in a few scenes you can see a clasp with a wire attached to his left ankle. However, when going up and jumping off the ladder or going through doors that close behind him you do not see it nor does it impede his movement.
The eruption Hood was talking to Young about in the car is the one from Mount Tambora, located on Sumbawa Island in Indonesia. It was in 1815. The eruption released sulfur into the stratosphere causing a global climate anomaly. In the summer of 1816, countries in the Northern Hemisphere suffered extreme weather conditions and it was called the Year Without a Summer. On June 4, 1816, frosts were reported in Connecticut and by the following day, most of New England was gripped by the cold front. On June 6, 1816, snow fell in Albany, New York, and Dennysville, Maine. Canada also experienced the same extreme weather conditions.
Hood reads the patent number as: 8,293,024. This is confirmed on screen at the top right of the document on the laptop screen. A search of US patents does not list this as a valid patent but it does come up with 1 close match using the search. The patent for "Method of Electrical Processing." Filed by Klipsch in 1940. The patent number is 2,293,024 and there are 8 pages. Which gives you the match for 8,293,024.
When Hood looks up the patent for the chemical that is being used to kill people he finds a patent "Trimethyl Crozine" that he says was filed by: Adastra Pharmaceuticals, El Segundo, CA. However, if you look closely that is listed as the correspondence address. Below it in blurry text it reads:
