    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Betamax camcorders are not capable of playing back the tape within the camcorder. They could only record. Thus the Fringe team should not have been able to have seen or heard what was on the Betamax tape while they were away from the lab and in the pocket universe without a separate Betamax VCR and TV.

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

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Walter: This is very important. Do not, under any circumstances... is that raspberry filling?

      • Walter: Don't you see? I'm not safe. It's my mind. Ever since the pieces of my brain were reimplanted, it's been changing me. Back into the man I was before, bit by bit. I'm losing myself, Pete. I'm losing the man that you helped me become.
        Peter: Listen to me. I'm not going to let that happen. We need you. You are our only hope to defeat the Observers. And I'm going to be here with you every step of the way.
        Walter: Please, son... don't let me go.
        Pete: I won't, Dad.

      • Title:
        Referencing Lewis Carroll (b.1832 - d.1898), whose real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
