    • Sophie: (to Nate) This is a new low, even for you. We both know, you're cold, you're distant, you're emotionally unavailable, but you're always punctual.

    • Parker: Is there a time machine?
      Eliot: There is.
      Parker: Yeah.
      Eliot: Yeah, not so much a machine though, as probably a portal. You don't really sit down as much as...
      Parker: I am gonna go get that portal and I am going to go--I am going to take...

    • Sophie: Fine. Off to the U.S. Patent Office, then. Let's go steal a...

    • Injoke: When Jimmy travels back in time in Parker's flashback, the producer's use a minor variation of the Doctor Who theme music.

  • Allusions

    • Alec: It's like the game Operation, except I'm the tweezers.
      Referencing the Milton-Bradley board game (now manufactured by Hasbro) where players attempt to remove small plastic pieces from a picture of a patient, Cavity Sam, using a pair of metal tweezers. The edges of the holes are lined with metal, and grazing them with the metal tweezers sets off Cavity Sam's red light-bulb and a buzzer noise. The game has spawned numerous variants, including patients such as Buzz Lightyear, Iron Man, and a Dalek.

    • Hardison: Hello, and welcome to the Island of Misfit Inventions.
      Referencing the Christmas special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964). Rudolph and his friends eventually find themselves on the Island of Misfit Toys, which is occupied by unloved toys which are defective or unwanted in some way. A sequel was made in 2001.

    • Eliot: Who am I? I'm just a fly in the ointment, pal.
      This and most of Eliot's other dialogue to Powell, as well as Nate's scheme to have Eliot pose as an off-duty cop stuck on the inside in a hostage situation, are taken directly from the movie Die Hard (1988), which starred Bruce Willis as John McClane, an off-duty New York cop trapped in a building when supposed terrorists take over. As of this episode's premiere, the movie spawned three sequels. Die Hard With a Vengeance (1995) marked the screen premiere of a young Aldis Hodge (Hardison).

    • Hardison: That's a bow-tie. Bow-ties are cool.
      Referencing a line commonly attributes to the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) in the British TV series Doctor Who. Since his last regeneration, the Doctor has worn bow-ties and insists that they are cool. He commonly uses the phrase to describe anything else he likes, such as fezzes.
