  • Trivia

    • When Agent Jessup opens the Bible at the Hughes' house, she finds a newspaper clipping. The clipping has details about the death of Evelyn and her child. The three columns of print have the same paragraphs repeating over and over, some word for word.

    • In the opening scene, a CN Railway train is shown passing through or near the town of Lansdale, PA, which is located near Philadelphia on the eastern edge of the state. CN's only route through Pennsylvania is along its western border near Pittsburgh.

    • Trivia: The Canadian National locomotive that passes as Raymond's coworkers call out his name bear the logo "CN." This is a reference to the next episode, "Fracture," where the goal of Project Tin Man was to combat the effects of CYANOGEN, a nerve gas with a chemical formula made up of two cyanide (CN) groups linked together (NC-CN), and alludes to the fact that the CN-related explosion occurred in a train station.

    • Trivia: The "soda" that Peter gets from the fridge 15mins in is in fact Fentimans Curiosity Cola from England

    • Trivia: The Observer can be seen to the right of the Hughes house in the long shot as Jessup goes in.

    • Trivia: The glyph code for this episode is MIRROR.

  • Quotes

    • Peter: Did you check the drawers?
      Olivia: Nope. Anything I've forgotten, they can keep. I don't want to spend another minute here. I'm, uh, no good at sitting around.
      Peter: You're also no good at letting people help you.
      Olivia: Oh, I'll let you carry my suitcase.

    • Astrid: We've been at this for five hours.
      Walter: Science is patience.
      Astrid: It's also slimy.

    • Sheriff Golightly: Be damned if I know what to make of it.
      Walter: Well, we're all victims of our own gene pool. Someone must have peed in yours.

    • Peter: How's it going, Walter?
      Walter: I plan to urinate in 23 minutes.
      Peter: Good to know.
      Walter: I'm telling you because I'm going to need help unzipping my fly. I can't feel my hand.

    • Walter: The base solution contains human DNA, male, I think. Of course, it's a mutation. Perhaps a whole new stage of human evolution. Wouldn't that be fantastic?
      Peter: If we've stumbled upon a mutant? No. Fantastic's not the first word that pops into my mind.
      Walter: We're all mutants. What's more remarkable is how many of us appear to be normal.

    • Peter: That was Olivia--Agent Jessup told her Hughes may have killed his wife and child 17 years ago.
      Walter: Oh, finally some good news. I assume we can dig them up. I haven't had any bodies to examine.
