Mr. Bennet / HRG
LAPD Captain Baldwin
The number plate on Hiro's fathers limosine was NCC 1701,(George Takei who played Sulu in STTOS which featured USS Enterprise NCC 1701)
The cash that Micah dumps out of his backpack is "stage money" (fake). The bills clearly show the 20 denomination but carry the portrait of Ben Franklin from the 100. The image on the back is also from the the 100, Independence Hall not the White House as should be on the 20.
On this episode Zack says that the Manatee is also known as the Sea Cow, which is a nickname used for all species from the Order Sirenia. This is because of the animals' diet, which mainly consists of seagrasses. There was also a recently extinct species, called the Steller's Sea Cow. The closest extant relative of this species was the dugong, with manatees being slightly more distantly related. Manatees can still be found, although - as Claire marks - they are in danger of extinction.
This episode is the second time we have heard "That's how we roll". Hiro made the quote in this episode, but the first time was made by Ando in "Better Halves".
Matt: Yes, I will call the plumber today.
Janice: Are you always gonna be in my head?
Matt: Well, I can't control this thing.
Janice: You can't or you won't?
Claude: I told you not to follow me.
Peter: I need help. You live up here?
Claude: You're not a fast learner, eh, mate?
Peter: I took care of a man who owned this building. His name was Charles Deveaux.
Claude: Never heard of him.
Peter: You don't think that's strange? I worked here. The place where you live and keep your birds.
Claude: I don't keep anything. I let 'em out once a day, they come back. Sounds like free will to me.
Peter: I need to learn how to control this. Like you do.
Claude: What are you talking about? It can't be controlled.
Peter: There has to be some way. If, if I don't, New York explodes. Okay? I explode.
Claude: An exploding man, where'd you get that idea?
Peter: My dreams. This place. I found you for a reason. I think you're the one that has to teach me how to stop this.
Claude: There's no such thing. No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn. You wake up in the morning, it's there. If you've got thin soup, then that's your supper. Sorry, mate, that's the way it is.
Peter: I'm trying not to die. There's got to be something you can do.
Claude: I can kill you myself right now. Solve your exploding problem here. Maybe that's why you dreamt me. Don't bother looking for me. You won't find me here again.
Hiro: My power is lost until I get the sword. It focused the samurai Kensei's power. It will do the same for me.
Ando: But Hiro, if you have no power, how can we steal the sword?
Hiro: I will find a way. That sword is my destiny. A samurai's weapon must be used with honor. And respect. This sword has many lessons to teach.
Ando: Swords are for killing. That's why they're sharp.
Hiro: Maybe I use the sword to kill bomb-man. Is it my destiny to kill this man?
Nathan: Dr. Suresh? Do you remember me?
Mohinder: Nathan Petrelli.
Nathan: You yelled at my car.
Mohinder: Yes, we met under unfortunate circumstances. I believe I came off as a deranged lunatic.
Mohinder: Peter's specific DNA allows for a blend. Like colors in a mosaic, resequencing itself to mimic the abilities of those around him.
Nathan: Like a chameleon.
Mohinder: More like a sponge. It's precisely why I've been studying him.
Nathan: Could his condition become dangerous, to himself or to other people?
Mohinder: If he absorbs too much or comes into contact with an unstable ability, then most definitely yes.
Nathan: Can you fix it?
Claire: My dad lied to me about my entire life; my biological parents, my ability, you can't just hide things like that! There's got to be something on there.
Zack: If your dad's the guy you're describing I don't think he's gonna keep his secrets on the family computer.
Haitian: Is your father becoming suspicious.
Claire: No. And it's kind of a problem. Every word out of my mouth is a lie. I have to laugh and smile and look him in the eye – my own father. It's breaking my heart.
Haitian: Would you prefer I took your memory?
Claire: I need to know that one thing in my life is real.
Claude: This your place?
Claude: A guy with family connections like yours could do a lot better.
Peter: I left the family business. I'm a nurse now.
Claude: A nurse who's an empath. Very cute.
Peter: Empath? What's that mean?
Claude: It means you're a pain in my ass, Mate.
Nathan: Where did he go?
Nathan: You're supposed to watch the door.
Mohinder: (pointing to open window) My God, did he just?
Peter: I know you want to help me. You're my big brother and you fix everything but you can't. You can't fix this one this time.
Nathan: Let's just sit down. We can figure this out.
Peter: Okay. (Peter runs away)
Nathan: There's got to be another way, Peter. Let me help you.
Peter: You can't.
Peter: I found you for a reason. I think you're the one who has to teach me how to stop this.
Claude: There's no such thing. No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn. You wake up in the morning and its there. If you got thin soup then that's your supper. Sorry, Mate. That's the way it is.
Hiro: (in English to Henchman) Where are you taking us?
Ando: (Japanese) Why isn't he talking to us?
Hiro: (Japanese) Maybe...he is not the Big Boss. (in English to Henchman) Tell your boss I'm on very important mission.
Henchman: I know all about your so-called mission to save the world, Mr. Nakamura. You think you have a power, and that you can use it to make a difference. (Japanese) You are...wrong.
Hiro: (Japanese) Who are you?
Henchman: (Japanese) I work for someone...who has true power. A man who knows what you're up to. And wants you...to stop. (English) Two first class tickets. Non-stop to Tokyo.
Ando: (English) First class?
Hiro: (Japanese) Ando, do not be tempted. Those tickets are a test...of our devotion to our mission. You cannot bribe a hero. My heart is true. My spirit unbreakable. When I meet your Big Boss, I will tell him the same thing!
Henchman: (Japanese) Oh -- he won't like that. Not one bit.
Zack: There was a fire 14 years ago in Kermit Texas. Kermit why does that name sound so familar?
Claire: Cause of the frog.
Claude: You can see me.
Peter: You-- (Claude grabs Peter by the neck)
Claude: Nobody can see me! I'm invisible! Who are you!? How can you see me!?
Peter: (Choked) I don't know. I just do what you can do.
(Claude lets him down)
Claude: Fantastic. One of those.
Peter: One of those. What do you mean? You know someone else like me!? Hey, wait. Where are you going? You need to explain this! I saw you. I saw you in my dream. Who are you?
Claude: I'm no one. I'm the invisible man. I'm Claude Rains. Now get away from me! Forget you ever saw me!
Peter: Yeah, but, you know! What's happening to me? What is this? I found you. I need you to help me.
Claude: Why would I wanna do that?
Peter: Because, we're in danger. This entire city is in danger. It was in my dream. People die. We die. I don't know when, but it happens.
Claude: Then you better leave town.
Peter: Hey, where are you going!? You can't hide from me!
Claude: I'm the invisible man; I can walk 'round the corner and disappear forever.
Peter: Yeah, but I can see you. I'm gonna follow you.
Claude: Smarter men than you have tried and have paid for it. You stay away from me. And don't follow me!
(Mohinder's voiceover at the beginning of the episode)
Mohinder: When we embrace what lies within, our potential has no limit. The future is filled with promise; the present rife with expectation. When we deny our instinct, and struggle against our deepest urges, uncertainty begins. Where does this path lead? When will the changes end? Is this transformation a gift or a curse? For those who fear what lies ahead, the most important question of all - can we ever really change what we are?
Claire: Do you know who my real parents are?
Haitian: Of your father, I know nothing.
Claire: And my mother?
Haitian: Only that she died in an explosion, here in Texas, 14 years ago.
Claire: My mother died. Are you sure?
Haitian: Your father told me many years ago. He had no reason to lie. This is the last conversation we have about this. Now, you need to go back home and forget about your real parents.
Ando: And why is everyone always chasing us?
Hiro: Because I'm special.
Ando: Well, I'm not special
Ando: And I'm tired of getting chased.
(at the sight of his father)
Hiro: (subtitled) GULP!
Peter: I can handle it.
Claude: Yeah, thats what they all say.
Peter: They? How many people have you taught, before me?
Claude: Come on, mate; I'll steal us a cab.
Micah: You know how you and Mom have a secret? Well... I have a secret too.
Ando: You came back for me.
Hiro: This is how we roll.
The symbol that is on the sword Hiro's after and on Jessica's back is seen worn around the Haitian's neck. This symbol is also seen in many recent Heroes episodes usually in the background (e.g. in Isaac's paintings and on Suresh's list!). This may be the symbol for RNA (similar to DNA).
There were no new appearances of the symbol in this episode.

Invisible Man: Fantastic!
The Invisible Man is played by Christopher Eccleston. Eccleston played the lead role in Doctor Who as the 9th Doctor. The 9th Doctor always said "Fantastic."
Zach: There was a fire 14 years ago in Kermit Texas. Kermit why does that name sound so familar?
Claire: Cause of the frog.
When Claire talks about a frog she is talking about the muppet Kermit the Frog.
In a conversation with Mr. Bennet, Claire Bennet says "When I'm sixty-four..." which is a reference to the hit song by the Beatles, When I'm Sixty-Four.
Hiro calling his captor's leader "The Big Boss" may be a reference to Konami's Metal Gear Solid video games. Also, "Big Boss" in the Metal Gear series was the main character's father.
