Mr. Bennet / HRG
Nathan's Campaign Manager
Malcolm MacDowell as Linderman waxes lyrical about time, the past, the future and meaning. It is very reminiscent of the discussion his character, Dr Tolian Soran, has with Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Generations.
On the episode of Last Call with Carson Daly, which aired March 2, 2007, Masi Oka showed a clip from this episode of Heroes.
This clip took place during the meeting between Hiro and Nathan at the Las Vegas casino in which Hiro tells Nathan that he is a "lone wolf". Due to Hiro's thick accent Nathan doesn't understand and he has to repeat the line several more times before Nathan gets it.
This scene was not in the original airing of the episode "Parasite", but is on the DVD in the deleted scenes.
When Mr. Bennet feels pain from the gunshot wound, he holds his right side. However, he was shot on the left side by the Haitian in "Company Man." This is later revealed as a view from a mirror.
The scene with the aerial view of Las Vegas was used before in "Collision."
The exact same scene in which Isaac snaps out of trance is used in the episode "Unexpected".
Hiro appears to be wearing different glasses in this episode to those which he normally wears. His new ones have white frames all the way around the lens whereas his old ones only had frames around the top half.
As everyone remembers, George Takei, Star Trek's Sulu, joins the show as Hiro's father. This episode, another ex Star Trek actor joins the cast: Malcolm McDowell (Linderman) appeared on "Star-Trek: Generations" on 1994, as the evil Dr. Tolian Soran.
It was suggested by Heroes' Co-executive Producer Greg Beeman that "Parasite" should have a warning attached in the beginning of the episode for the weak-hearted viewers.
Jessica and Micah are shown playing Heavenly Sword for the Playstation 3. However, the episode takes place in late October or early November, before the Playstation 3 was released, and Heavenly Sword isn't due for release until mid-2007.
FBI Agents Quesada & Alonso are reference to Marvel Comics' Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada and Executive Editor Axel Alonso.
Heroes Co-Executive Producer and writer Jeph Loeb is a popular comic books writer currently in exclusive contract with Marvel.
Mr. Linderman: Voilà! A pot pie. Wholesome, warm, healthy. That's, of course if you can live without the cream sauce. Personally, I can't. I mean, what's the point? You know, people can sleep, or they can gamble, or they can even make love when they're miserable. But I think that most people eat when they're happy. I like to see people happy. Are you happy, Nathan?
Sylar: I wasn't begging for my life.
(A terrified Mohinder steps back) I was offering you yours.
Hiro: (about the Isaac Mendez painting) This one is very special.
Curator: This painting is ripped .. and repaired with scotch tape.
Hiro: Yes, VERY special.
Sylar: To new friends. (takes a sip from the cup) This is good. What is it?
Mohinder: Chai. It's a special blend my father brought from India.
Sylar: Who are we going to call next?
Mohinder: No one. I already have you, Mr. Sylar.
(Sylar passes out)
(Claire knocks on an apartment door; someone answers it)
Claire: I'm sorry, I hope I have the right address. I'm looking for, uh...Peter Petrelli.
(cut to Peter's mother Angela standing at the door)
Angela: You picked a terrible time to do that. Peter's not here just now.
Thompson: (to Bennet) Mm-hmm. So Sprague and Parkman taking your family hostage, shooting your daughter, a bullet clean through your side. You'd think something there might have made an impression.
Nathan: Where's your friend?
Hiro: Ando? I sent him back to Japan. This mission getting too dangerous for him.
Nathan: I know what you mean. You can't protect everyone. Sometimes it's better to go it alone. The more people you try to help…
Hiro: The more people get hurt.
Haitian: I do not need you happy. Only safe.
Claire: There's nothing left of me. Everything I am is gonna disappear the second I get on that plane. My friends, my family, me.
Isaac: How am I supposed to pretend this didn't happen?
Candice: Maybe you should have thought about that before you shot her. Twice.
Curator: (stopping Hiro from slapping down painting) There are so few Dead Sea fragments left in the world, be a pity if you crushed this one.
Jessica: (to FBI agents) Mr. Linderman sends his regards, and a suggestion: Don't run surveillance on a man from inside his own hotel. It's really tacky.
Linderman: (about Nathan holding a gun on him) I won't hold it against you. Lots of men have tried to kill me.
Nathan: Then I'll be the last.
Mrs. Bennet: I tell you, that flood in our basement turned into a right vacation for this family.
Nathan: Just stay with me.
Peter: I can't. I can't. As long as I'm alive, everyone around me is in danger.
Mrs. Bennet: Don't worry, I know how to play dumb.
Peter: I thought I could be a hero, save the world. Instead I just killed it.
Sylar: I remember you... You're like me aren't you? I'd like to see how that works.
Sylar: Give me that damn list so I can sink my teeth in!
Sylar: I'm a natural progression of the species. Evolution is a part of nature and nature kills. Simple, right?
Mohinder: What you've done isn't evolution, it's murder. What I am doing — is revenge.
Angela Petrelli: (in french) Au moins maintenant elle sera en sécurité... et pas grâce à vous ! (Translation: At least, now she will be safe...and no thanks to you!)
Haitian: Ecoutez j'ai fait tout ce que j'ai pu... elle aurait bien fini par trouver sa propre voie ... (Translation: Listen, I did all that I could. She would have ended up well finding her own way.)
Sylar: You have given me hope.
Mohinder: Hope is great. We need caffeine!
Linderman: Do you like vegetables, Nathan?
Nathan: I've been known to eat zucchini when the mood strikes, but not as a rule.
Nathan: When I first meet you, I thought you were nuts.
Hiro: Is ok, I thought you were mean. But now I know, you pretend that you don't care about anyone, but you care too much.
Linderman: You see, I think there comes a time when a man has to ask himself whether he wants a life of happiness or a life of meaning.
Nathan: I'd like to have both.
Linderman: Can't be done. Two very different paths. I mean, to be truly happy, a man must live absolutely in the present and with no thought with what's gone on before, and no thought of what lies ahead. But a life of meaning, a man is condemned to wallow in the past and obsess about the future. And my guess is that you've done quite a bit of obsessing about yours these last few days. (Nathan pulls out a gun) Now you can't have any of my pot pie.
Mr. Bennet: You expect me to do nothing.
Hiro (After he sees Nathan.): Flying man!
Claire: My name is Vivian, and I'm from Canada???
Hiro: (Speaking to Linderman's bouncer in Japanese) You Can't Stop Me! Bigger men than you have tried. I will find a way inside...(The Bouncer steps in front of him)...Somehow.

Another episode where there is neither an intro nor an outro by Mohinder Suresh.
Masi Oka provides the intro "Previously, on Heroes" voiceover in Japanese. The on-screen text is also in Japanese: 'O‰ñ'Ü'Å'Ì' 'ç'·'¶.
This is the first time the "Previously on Heroes" phrase in the beginning of the episode is written in another language. In this case, the Japanese language.
This episode was formerly known as "Like Any Parasite".

The Curator: There are so few Dead Sea fragments left in the world. It'd be a pity if you crushed this one.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are ancient documents found in Qumran from 1947 onward, including segments from the Old Testament of the Bible.
When Hiro is looking on the PC for the sword it has the stock code "CRM-114".
This code appears in many of Stanley Kubrick's films in various guises. Malcolm Macdowell, who plays Lindermann, also played Alex in "A Clockwork Orange", where the code appears as "Serum 114" (CRM-Serum... geddit?) - the serum he is given to reduce his violent tendencies.
