137 Sekunden

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Oct 08, 2009 on ABC



  • Trivia

    • The skyline of Munich shown at the beginning of the episode is incorrect. The position of the Alps in the background indicates a southerly viewing direction. The Olympic Tower, here seen southwest of the churches in the city, actually is located northeast of the city. Furthermore, only the town's famous landmarks are shown, while all other skyscrapers are missing. The second shot of Munich later during the episode shows an incorrect city, with four of the town's famous landmarks randomly located between other houses.

    • When Zoey writes a message to Demetri from the plane, the letters that she presses on her phone don't match what she is actually writing.

    • Trivia: Tracy Stark, Aaron's daughter, was born on December 22, 1984 and was reported to have died on October 16, 2007.

    • When Demetri meets Zoey in the airport, she comes forward with a trolley topped with a piece of hand luggage. After they hug, a long shot shows the hand luggage is on the floor. In the next shot, it's back on top of the trolley.

    • Episode's key word: Murdered

    • When Felicia and Olivia are talking in a cafeteria, the amount of Felicia's dark-colored drink in her cup changes. Also, when the shot changes, you see she then has an almost full cup of a light colored drink.

    • New parts of the Mosaic Collective:

      - Rudolf Geyer's picture.

    • Episode's title image: Birds in the sky in Somalia

    • When collecting the data on the crow population, Janis tells Mark that the CDC had requested additional funding from DHS to investigate a mass die off of crows in Somalia in 1991. However, the DHS was not actually formed until November 2002.

    • Trivia: We learn that 137 seconds is the same as the sum of the numerical equivalents of the Hebrew letters in Kabbalah. (5+30+2+100)

    • The prison in Munich detaining Geyer does not exist as shown in this episode, but there actually is a prison with former Nazi-detainees in Stadelheim near Munich (JVA Stadelheim). The most recent Nazi to be put into this JVA is John Demjanjuk. The JVA Stadelheim is also the same prison in which Adolf Hitler was detained after the failed Munich-revolt in 1923.

  • Quotes

    • Demetri: (answering cell phone) This is Demetri.
      Caller: I'm sorry to disturb you, but I'm calling in response to your Mosaic board posting.
      Demetri: Who is this? How did you get this number?
      Caller: I can't divulge that, but I can tell you that my vision involved you.
      Demetri: Go on...
      Caller: In my flash forward, I was reading an intelligence briefing, and... I am sorry, there is no delicate way to say this, but on March 15th, 2010, you are going to be murdered.
      Demetri: What? What the hell are you talking about?
      Caller: I understand why you are upset, but my hope is that, by telling you what I know, you will be able to prevent your murder from happening.
      Demetri: Your briefing, did it say who killed me?
      Caller: I'm afraid not.
      Demetri: What did it say, then?
      Caller: That you were an agent from the American FBI and that you were shot three times in the chest.

    • Mark: (looking at the worldwide crow population graph) There, see that dip? The day of the blackout. Geyer said that crows died outside his cell but it wasn't just in Germany, it was all over the world, during the blackout.
      Janis: (sighs) Mark, and I say this with love, who gives a damn?

    • Mark: (About making a deal with Geyer) I have to ask myself if the ends don't justify the means here.
      Janis: They never do, Mark.

    • Stanford: One of the agents here repeated to me something that a friend had mentioned to him and he said, We're all prophets now. And, you know, I can't think of a prophet worth a damn that didn't suffer. And I also can't think of a prophet that God didn't love.

    • Janis: How can I have faith in something I'm not even sure is real?
      Mark: Then you've got a problem because that's what faith is.

    • Janis: There are a lot of ghosts, here. Isn't this where Sophie Scholl and the rest of the White Rose Nazi Resistance group were executed?
      Stefan Krieger: For what mistake did your country eradicate its indigenous population and practice institutionalized slavery for over 250 years?
      Mark: We also gave the world Britney Spears.

    • Mark: We gotta follow up on this.
      Janis: Based on what, Mark, your Spidey sense?

    • Zoey: (after sleeping with Demetri) That's the second time I blacked out this week.

    • Janis: There's no statue of limitations on evil.

    • Aaron: (To Mark) If you want to prevent the future and save your marriage, first step isn't keeping secrets from your wife. Take that from a guy who's already been divorced, right?

    • Mark: Janis, we've been so worried the blackout might happen again, we haven't stopped to ask ourselves what if it happened before.
