In the pre-credits teaser when Barry and Fitzhugh are frozen in time going into the Spindrift, Stefan Arngrim is frozen with his left leg raised. There are several cuts back to him and his left leg is raised. However, when the aliens free him from stasis, in the last shot his left leg is down and his right leg is raised.
Trivia: We hear a little backstory about Dan and Steve's history at the "academy".
Trivia: Several strong continuity notes: reference is made to Dan in the Olympics (from "Deadly Lodestone"), the science center from "Genius at Work" is used again, and the knockout hypodermic from "Six Hours to Live" is utilized.
The machine inexplicably produces fully-dressed clones.
Watch carefully when Dan wakes up in the cage with the others the first time. He has a noticeable rip in the *ahem* zipper area of his pants.
The double used for the shots of Valerie and her clone appearing together is noticeably shorter (about 1") than Ms. Lund.
During the sequence where Chipper is choosing between the two caged groups, listen and you can hear the clone-Valerie call Chipper saying "thatta girl." Not only is Chipper male, as established in previous episodes, but the dog is referred to as a male throughout this episode as well. The clone-Fitzhugh even calls him "boy" at practically the same time.
For some reason Mark uses explosives on the latch to the containment box. However, the latch is a simple mechanism that could simply be unhooked.
When Mark attaches the explosive charge to the latch, there's a yellow nail that it pivots on. it's still seen when the charge goes off. However, in the subsequent spots, the yellow nail becomes the same color as the rest of the latch, a dark grey.
The clone Fitzhugh was made at the same time, or very close to the same time, as the first set of Barry and Valerie clones. He was made before the Dan clone. Despite that, he lasts until almost the end of the episode, much longer than the others.
50-year technology gap: the giants have experimental cloning technology far in advance of what we have in 2001.
Within walking distance: the science center (presumably the same one mentioned in "Genius at Work," however)
Supposedly alien planet: pretty much every Hollywood movie cliché shown.
Within walking distance: a bridge, a four-lane highway, at least one or two movie studios
Valerie manages to fall twice, and accidentally activate the Monk statue and endanger Mark's life as well. In general, she's not having a good day here.
The "statue" of Fitzhugh blinks just before it topples over in the second shot.
The proportions of the statues' interiors make very little sense. They are too wide to match the outside legs of the statues, and Mark and Valerie don't seem to climb up much more than 10-15' into them.
When Jolo cuts off the head of the first statue, the swords bumps into a second statue and knocks off that head as well, although the sword never touches the neck or head.
Why does Jolo bother to threaten Deenar by specifically cutting the heads off of wax statues to convince him to give up a diamond worth millions of dollars? Couldn't Deenar afford to make some more if he kept the diamond?
It's not quite clear why Jolo is impressed by Steve's threat to "throw the diamond out the window". Steve is nowhere near a window, probably couldn't throw it that far from floor level if he was, and even if he did they could just go outside and recover the diamond anyway.
