    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (8)

      • The time travelers from "A Place Called Earth," and thus their time machine, come from the year 5477, yet Dan is able to fix it, and with present-day parts.

      • Look carefully during the scenes of the pod on Earth and you can see the power cables covered up by dirt and then running up to the leg of the pod.

      • The producers and writers go to great lengths to ignore the absent-due-to-pregnancy Heather Young: none more so then in this episode. When asked where everyone is, Valerie doesn't even mention the absent Betty, and the giants are now vague on whether there are six or seven Earthlings.

      • The timer in the time machine is going way too fast to signify minutes, as Steve claims. They should also run out of time much sooner if the timer is accurate.

      • Steve makes a reference to them having gone back 75 years in the past. However, much of this episode takes place in 1900, and the premiere episode says the date is 1983. He presumably meant 83 years ago.

      • What is "frozen time" and why is the torch burning despite the fact time has supposedly been frozen?

      • Actually, despite the fact that Fitzhugh claims never to have seen a space warp/"green gook" (see Quotes), he did indeed see the space warp in the pilot episode.

      • Is Dan really so dense he doesn't realize Barry's last birthday was only six months ago? Granted, he's had a lot on his mind, but given the stuff that happened on that birthday (i.e., the events of "The Creed"), you'd think he'd remember it a little better. Steve doesn't have any trouble remembering.
