  • Allusions

    • The priest muttering "Oh boy" upon seeing Dan is an allusion to the series Quantum Leap, which had a similar premise to Journeyman. In Quantum Leap, the main character would regularly use "Oh boy" as a "catchphrase" shortly after arriving in a new time and finding himself in unusual situations.
