The scene of Micah playing the piano may have been inspired by the fact that Noah Gray-Cabey is a piano prodigy. He began playing complicated and intricate pieces by ear at the age of three.
Alan Blumenfeld and Greg Grunberg (Maury and Matt Parkman) has appeared on screen as father and son before, on the WB teen drama, Felicity, in which Greg Grunberg was a star. The two appeared together on season 4 of the series.
The movie Monica copies the martial arts moves from is Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, starring Jason Scott Lee.
When Monica changes the channel on the TV to find an action movie, among the fictional networks seen are the Living Room Channel (either a women's channel like Lifetime or SoapNet mainly for soap operas), the Gulf News Channel (likely a local news channel for New Orleans), the All-Cartoon Channel (similar to Cartoon Network), and Brava (likely an offshoot of Bravo for independent movies).
According to Peter's passport he is born on 23rd December 1979.
In the 'nightmare' fighting scene between Nathan and Matt, Matt realizes it's not real and holds onto Nathan's face to tell him to 'wake up'. We first see Matt's hand wearing a watch holding onto Nathan's face even though it is in Nathan's nightmare. Nathan begins to strangle his burnt self but it still Matt's hand on his face. However the next shot we see the hand is now Nathan's burnt self hand (no watch different sleeve).
On Peter Petrelli's passport, his gender is marked "F" for female.
The church Peter paints at the end is the Basilique Notre-Dame in the old Port of Montreal. It was built in 1824.
Mohinder: Niki, you're a prisoner!
Niki: No, I'm not! I came here on my own. I gave up my son to be here. I'm sick. I didn't think anyone could understand my problems. What I've done, what I'm capable of. These are the only people who can help me.
Elle: Y'know, I've never been in an Irish pub before. Do you have haggis?
Ricky: That's Scotland, love. We have stew.
Peter: You were right. Whatever I was, whoever I am, I have to face it. Nothing that I find in this box is gonna to change anything. Whatever my life was before, this is where I wanna be now. With you. 'Kay?
Caitlin: Okay. Get on with it, then.
Mohinder: (about taking Molly to the Company) Molly won't last, not like this. They are the only people who can understand what's happening to her.
Mr. Bennet: Don't do this. The moment you trust them with what you care about most, they'll have you. Don't forget who's side you're on.
Mohinder: I'm on her side.
Mr. Parkman: Still angry, huh, Matt? Feel better slapping the cuffs on your dad? Make you feel good?
Parkman: Starting to, yeah.
Nathan: Parkman, this is not a family reunion.
Parkman: I know.
Nathan: He's not your dad today, He is a suspect. Get your gun out.
Ricky: (about the girl looking for Peter) No worries, boyo. I think I can help.
Peter: This is my problem.
Ricky: Not given what I just saw between you and my sister. You care about her, don't you?
Peter: Right now she's the only thing in my life that means something.
Disfigured Nathan: Let's go over the edge. You won't feel anything. You never do.
Nathan: You don't know me.
Disfigured Nathan: I am you.
(Micah is playing the piano when Monica arrives)
Nana: Isn't it wonderful? We've got a musician in the house again.
(Monica approaches and he stops playing)
Monica: (To Micah) Nobody's touched that thing since my mother died.
Micah: Oh, I'm sorry. Nana said I could, but if you...
Monica: Oh, yeah. It's okay. Please, keep playing.
Micah: You must really miss your mom.
Monica: Yeah, I do.
Micah: I miss mine too.
Monica: Oh, I'm sure she's fine and missing you right back.
Micah: She wouldn't even tell me where she was going.
Monica: You gotta remember she cares about you. I know new things can be scary. My mom always said God doesn't give us anything we can't handle.
(Then she starts playing without noticing)
Micah: You play piano, too?
Monica: No, never learned.
(Stops to look and plays faster and faster. Then in shock, stops herself)
Micah: If you don't play, then what was that?
(Micah discovers about Monica's powers)
Micah: Monica, do you remember last night when I said I was able to rig the pay-per-view on the TV?
(He touches the TV and changes channels)
Micah: Well, I lied.
Monica: How did... How did you...
Micah: I think it runs in the family. I mean, maybe not exactly like me, but my dad could walk through walls.
Micah: Yeah, and my mom... Don't even get me started on my mom.
Matt: (to Molly) You're going to be okay. (Matt kisses her on her forehead)
Caitlin: Peter, just because you don't remember your past, it doesn't mean you don't have one.
Mohinder: (to Matt) Molly faced her worst nightmare for you. Do the same for her, find him.
Mohinder: (voice over) When confronted by our worst nightmares, the choices are few; fight or flight. We hope to find the strength to stand against our fears but sometimes, despite ourselves, we run. What if the nightmare gives chase? Where can we hide then?
Nathan: Listen, I'm guessing this isn't official police business. So if I'm there, it won't really make a difference because officially, neither are you.
Matt: You don't understand. It's Molly. My father did something to her. She's in trouble.
Nathan: What do you mean "did something to her"?
Matt: Come here. (Both step aside for more privacy)
Nathan: Did what?
Matt: He got inside her head somehow. I don't know how he did it, but I think it's all connected. To Kaito, to your mother. It could be dangerous.
Nathan: I can take care of myself. Listen, I have to do this. Let me come with you.
Matt: Fine. We can probably get there faster, you know, 'cause you can uh...(Nods his head upward)
Nathan: I'm not a cargo jet, Parkman!
Matt: Oh, please.
Nathan: Hey, you okay?
Matt: When I was 13, my father ran out on us. I haven't talked to him...I haven't seen him. I've spent half my life thinking about what I'm going to say to this guy if I ever got the chance and now I can't even knock on the door.
Nathan: (Knocks on the door) You're welcome!
In Matt Parkman's nightmare, the cop speaks backwards. By recording and reversing the audio it's possible to hear: "You abandoned your kid. You're a deadbeat, and now you're gonna pay. You know the drill, hands against the wall."
Later, when Parkman says he's not supposed to be in a cell, the cop replies both normally and backwards: "There's no one supposed to be here."

This is the very first episode of Heroes in which Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennet) doesn't appear.
The symbol appears on a building in Peter's painting.
It also appears on Micah's Copycat comic. (left-hand corner)
The symbol is also seen drawn in red on the photo of Maury Parkman.
Maury Parkman and Matt Parkman: Maury Parkman revealed that he has telepathy, however he is clearly much more adept at it than his son. Mr. Parkman was able to block Matt's telepathy, read deep into both Matt and Nathan's memory and induce a vivid telepathic vision on both Matt and Nathan. This is also the first time we see that a power has been inherited.
Plus, this is the first time Matt can send a message to someone else's mind, instead of simply reading his thoughtspeak.
Monica Dawson: Her powers are revealed to be 'Muscle Mimicry'. This would mean that it was different from Charlie, as Monica's muscles seem to be able to do things of their own accord. Evidently Isaac had written an issue of 9th Wonders based on her.
Elle: (played by Kristen Bell) Elle is an agent and she has a power that appears to manipulate electromagnetism.
