  • Trivia

    • When Hiro takes the baby bottle and gives it to baby Matt, the milk is clearly moving despite the fact that Hiro has stopped time.

    • When Hiro unplugs the TV, its clear that the actual set is still plugged in. A green light is visible on the bottom corner of the TV which indicates that it has power.

  • Quotes

    • Ando: People like us are being arrested.
      Janice: By who? The government?
      Hiro: Yes. They're rounding us up. And they're coming for little Matt. We were sent to help.
      Janice: The government is coming for my son? He's just a baby. He's no threat.

    • Micah: I thought that because you looked like my mom, that I knew you.
      Tracy: If I met you earlier in my political career, maybe I'd be more like my bio. But I'm not that person. I'm not your mom.
      Micah: I know. You're nothing like her. My mom, who was the everyday American, was a hero. You're just a politician.
      Tracy: And who are you? Che Guevara?
      Micah: Che Guevara led a revolution. This is a rebellion. So whose side are you on? And "mine" is not an answer.

    • Daphne: I didn't know you could fly.
      Matt: I didn't know you could run on water.

    • Daphne: You convinced them I was Gwen Stefani?
      Matt: Uh... yeah. Got you a good room, didn't it?

    • Angela: Hello, Millie.
      Millie: You look like you've been mugged and the first thing they stole was your dignity.

    • Tracy: So we just walk out the front door?
      Matt: Yeah. Aren't you glad you waited for us?

    • Noah: How did you catch him?
      Danko: I'm smarter than the average bear.

    • Angela: This should be our last conversation. It's not safe for you to be seen with me.
      Noah: I'm touched. Or I would be if I could imagine that you really care about my safety.
      Angela: What I care about is having an awful lot depending on a man too distracted to pack an umbrella on a cloudy day. Or use a proper razor.

    • Daphne: You really would do anything for me, wouldn't you?
      Matt: Just say the word.
      Daphne: Then let me go.
      Matt: (hesitates) What?
      Daphne: We're still in the hospital, aren't we? And this is all you in my head, trying to give me a storybook ending.
      Matt: I'm sorry.
      Daphne: Don't be. I'm not. But, Matt, you deserve the real thing. Not a fantasy.
      Matt: I just wanted to make you happy.
      Daphne: You did... Do one more thing for me?
      Matt: (choking up) Anything.
      Daphne: Fly me to the moon.

    • Hiro: (in Japanese) Heroes change the world. Not diapers.

    • Matt: A penny for your thoughts.
      Daphne: Since when did you start paying people for their thoughts?
