    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (10)

      • Near the end of the episode, a nighttime shot of The Portals development in Southwest Washington, D.C., was shown to imply that it was the location of the National Security Agency (NSA) headquarters. The NSA is actually located at Fort Meade, Maryland, in Anne Arundel County. The Portals is home to the Federal Communications Commission, among other tenants.

      • In the last scene when Jake is talking about where he is from, he say he is from Akron, Ohio and mentions that there is an amusement park there. There in fact is no amusement park in Akron. The closest one would be Geauga Lake, which is located about 45 minutes away from Akron.

      • Trivia: In one of the final scenes of the episode, Jake says that he is originally from Akron, Ohio.

      • At the airport, when Jake first walks toward Theresa and her goons, you can see he is wearing white sneakers with his suit. But when he jumps into Theresa's car seconds later, he is wearing black business shoes. Do his enhanced abilities afford him super sartorial speed as well?

      • In one of the last scenes at the airport, Jakes runs behind Theresa to catch her while she drives a car (a brand new one, I might add), new cars have an 'Electronic Brain' that handles the shifting of gears. Why didnt Jake just fry this brain, or stop the engine? New cars can lock the engine electronically when the alarm goes off or the key doesn't match, and this is handled electronically, not mechanically. So, it would be feasible for Jake to stop the car somehow instead of running behind it.

      • At the beginning of the episode, Jake returns from a mission, brushes off his nosy neighbour, and enters his apartment, not noticing that the light fixtures inside are already on. Even a bumbling secret agent should react to that. Since this is never referred to later, we can safely assume it is just a goof.

      • Theresa says that she was a business major at Brown. Brown does not have a business major. It has a major called "public and private sector organizations," but the two are not really comparable.

      • The name on the top of the building that Theresa Caranno lives in was 'Harbour Building', indicating a Canadian location. (If the building were in the US, it would be spelt 'Harbor'.)

      • The microsyntex used at the beginning to blow up the bus is described as having a "fragmentation pattern of 100 yards" but the guys at the beginning were only about 10 yards away and only got blown off their feet and bruised a little.

      • "Phillippines" is misspelled "Phillipines" in the opening subtitle.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jake: I didn't know we had someone in the presidential palace.
        Lou: Yes, the president.

      • Theresa: (to Jake) No, when we start painting. Don't be afraid, just really push.
        Diane: (listening in) Probably not the first time she said that.

      • Karen: So how was the vacation?
        Jake: Good. You know, those cruise ships are great for getting away from it all.
        Karen: I thought you went to Yellowstone?
        Jake: I did.. by way of Panama.

      • Kyle: How'd you know it was this truck?
        Jake: I interfaced with the driver's cell phone. My Serbo-Croatian's pretty minimal, but I thought he said something about his mother's cheese gun.
        Kyle: Uh huh. So in our report, we'll just say you heard the word 'gun'.

      • Jake: Following a girl around for hours? It'll be just like college. (laughs) I'm kidding about that. Totally... kidding.
        Kyle: Jake, you can't have any contact with her, understood?
        Jake: Yes, understood, absolutely.
        Kyle: Good. (walks off)
        Jake: No contact. Just like college.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Music: "Shining Light" by Ash, "Flames" by Kathleen "Bird" York, "Never Gonna Find Us" by Kathleen "Bird" York, "I.O.U. Love" by Six By Seven, "Get Lost In You" by Devin Powers, "Bahia Blanca" by Daniel Indart, and "Brand New Morning" by Gretchen Lieberum.

      • Marina Black doesn't appear in this episode. She was only mentioned.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)
