  • Allusions

    • (Henry's shop has nearly shaken apart.)
      Henry: That was a little too close to home.
      Carter: Yeah. "What's the frequency, Kenneth?"
      Carter references the 1994 R.E.M. song from the album Monster, the title of which was influenced by an attack on CBS news anchor Dan Rather.

    • Nathan Stark: (looking into a mirror) Nope, not a vampire.
      A tongue in cheek reference to HBO's True Blood, in which Ed Quinn played the vampire Stan for three episodes in season two.

    • Allison: What about you? You were at the barbecue. You haven't said a word about who you're seeing...
      Trevor Grant: Tall, leggy blonde. Slinky red dress.
      Allison: Old girlfriend?
      This is yet another very thinly veiled (if veiled at all) reference to the show Battlestar Galactica in which James Callis played the character of Gaius Baltar. The "tall, leggy blonde in a red dress" not only was his girlfriend, Number Six, but she was a sort of hallucination throughout that series.
