  • Trivia

    • If you look closely at the screen in the bank, while Jake is using the computer behind the banker's back, you can see that where it says "Account Information," the work "account" is misspelled as "acount."

    • So why doesn't Jake do...well, anything to prove to Sarah he's telling the truth? Make a stoplight or all the streetlights blink on and off or something? Or why doesn't he show her his powers and then explain?

  • Quotes

    • (Diane is talking to Steve on the phone, ignoring Jake.)
      Jake: Well I guess I'm fine then. It's not like I was stabbed or anything. It's more like a slash, really, kinda like a big papercut. Except for the knife.

    • Jake: Yeah, sure put the fear of God into him. You should'a seen the bloodstain I left on his sleeve--that won't come out, you know.

    • (Jake's phone rings)
      Jake: Hey, Sarah. We're finally talking.
      Sarah: I know, just when I was starting to develop a relationship with your voice mail.
      Jake: Yeah, you guys are getting pretty close.
      Sarah: We are. He knows just when to beep. A little predictable though.

    • Vasily: Are you going to torture me, or are you just going to talk me to death?
      Kyle: We don't torture prisoners in this county, no matter how much we wish to.
      Vasily: That's a shame. I find the pain the most effective way of getting what you want.

    • Jake: Hey, it could happen to anybody.
      Diane: No, just anyone who allows themselves to be wined and dined and sold into white-scientist slavery.

    • Vasily: Mr. Lowenstein. I'm afraid I have unfortunate news. I'm not going to be able to do this thoroughly as I hoped. I'm deeply sorry… about the rug. (shoots him)

    • Jake: Hey, can you tap into their security cameras?
      Tech Agent Carver: (looks at Kyle) I can if he tells me to.

    • Diane: Why can't I find a guy who's just after my body?

    • Sarah: Let me get this straight. You're a secret agent at the NSA, and there are these tiny robots...
      Jake: Computers, really. Microscopic computers. They're self-replicating, and they feed off the... uh... yeah. Ti-Tiny robots.

    • Kyle: Do you even really need to sleep, I mean, with those nanites and all?"
      Jake: No, Kyle. I just plug myself into an electrical outlet for a couple minutes, and I'm good to go for the day.

    • Jake: (to Duarte) Do you have to be so dramatic?!?

    • Fran: You have a lot of guts, Jake. But if it weren't for the nanites, I'd be stuffing them back in you.

    • Kyle: So, when you jog, do you hear that slo-mo running sounds from The Six Million Dollar Man? That do-do-do-do-do-do?

    • Jake: You know, I had dinner last night and the whole novelty thing is wearing thin.

  • Notes

    • Music: "Superhero", "Flamethrower," and "I'm Sorry" by Black Toast, and "Don't Be Surprised" by Kid Gloves.

  • Allusions

    • Kyle: So when you jog, do you hear that slo-mo running sound from The Six Million Dollar Man? That do-do-do-do-do-do-do...?

    • Kyle Duarte: Come on, I have a job for you, Mr. Roboto.

    • Jake: What do you keep down in this dungeon - the Pig-Boy?
