  • Trivia

    • Trivia: The blackout lasted 2 minutes and 17 seconds. The passage that Nicole's mother read before burning the Bible was Genesis 2:17.

    • When Nicole Kirby spots the guy she saw drowning her in her flashforward, she is carrying two or three large binders in her left arm as she begins to run after him. She runs towards the camera with the binders still in her left arm but the view turns to a rear view when she catches up with the wrong guy and the binders have switched to her right arm as she reaches out to turn him around with her left arm. As she does turn him around, the view again changes to her facing the camera and now the binders have totally disappeared.

  • Quotes

    • Timothy: Each one of us is unique. But we are being stitched together to form a tapestry. Something larger that can't be understood until we step back to see the whole thing... At some point, we all wake up, and then we have to choose. Do we walk in hope, believing that what God is doing is good, or do we stumble around, resigning ourselves to chaos?

    • Simon: Excuse me! I know America was a country founded by Puritans, but is there really not a single beer in this entire place?
      Mark: I think you got us confused with the ATF, Dr. Campos.

    • Lloyd: Who are you?
      Flosso's Man: You actually don't want to know the answer to that question.
      Lloyd: Go to hell.
      Flosso's Man: You have no idea what hell is, but I guess you're gonna find out.

    • Simon: Could you get me a beer from the refrigerator, please?
      Janis: We're here as your security, Mr. Campos, not your servants.
      Simon: I'm trying to brute force an encryption here. I don't have time to get up. I have even less time for explicating why said request should be obvious. So why don't you toddle off, get me a beer? It'll help me cogitate. That means "think."
      Janis: That's a big word for such a little man.
      Simon: I'm wounded. But I still want my beer.

    • Flosso: I have emphysema. I contracted it through years of habitual smoking. Disgusting proclivity, isn't it? Only villains smoke. We know this, right?
      Simon: I'm sorry. You are...?
      Flosso: You may call me Flosso. And I'm a villain.

    • Dr. Langer: Well, therapy is a lot like AA. The first step in Recovery is admitting you have a problem.
      Mark: This gonna hurt?
      Dr. Langer: Truth always does a little.

    • Simon: Well, can I go home first, at least?
      Janis: Dude, you live in a hotel.
      Simon: It's got this amazing shower and it sprays water on you in all directions.
      Janis: Oh, you have got to be...
      Simon: And the towels--white, fluffy, warm.
      Janis: Are you serious? Does that crap actually work on women?
      Simon: My attempt is not to seduce but to disarm, in the physic sense.
      Janis: Oh.
      Simon: An unstable element transforms.
      Janis: Huh.
      Simon: I find that people are a little bit more honest when you... disarm them.

    • Janis: Did you really think you could leave the country without being noticed?
      Simon: "Country" is such a loose term. It's Canada.

  • Allusions

    • Simon: Can we dispense with the "This is your life," please?
      Referencing the TV series, starting in 1952 and based on a prior radio series, that has appeared in various incarnations in the U.S., England, New Zealand, Australia and Israel. Arguably the best known version in America was hosted by Ralph Edwards and featured a celebrity who is surprised by Edwards and informed "This is your life." The guest, typically a celebrity, would then have their life reviewed, and family and friends arrive to pay tribute to them.

    • Lorraine Campos: So we'll go no more a roving, so late into the night, though the heart be still as loving and the moon be still as bright...
      Referencing Byron's poem, "So, we'll go no more a roving." Penned in 1817, it was later published in 1830 in Letters and Journals of Lord Byron.
