    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Michael asked Sydney who did this to her (when she came into the emergency room after her accident that supposedly killed her in the original series), Sydney responded that it was someone from her past. Fans of the original series know that Sydney was run down by Samantha accidentally, who's father took control of the car trying to run from the police.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Ella rushes toward the door, sending a text message)
        Lauren: Morning. More coffee?
        Ella: I want sleep and another set of opposable thumbs.

      • Jonah: (to Ella, referring to Taryn) I never thought I would actually say this, but let me see what I can do about getting the forty-five away from the crazy chick in the bus.

      • Ella: You were brilliant today, Jonah. When you focus and you execute, you're unstoppable. Why would you let anyone come in the way of that?
        Jonah: Because I'm not like you, Elle. I can't just turn off my emotions, okay? When I said I wasn't thinking about Riley today, she was still on my mind. She's always on my mind.
        Ella: Well, then I hope she likes Bar Mitzvahs and birthday parties. Because if you don't start putting your career first, that's all you're going to have to share with her.

      • Auggie: No one's asking you to have every answer.
        Riley: But Jonah just wanted one answer, and it took me an entire day to give it to him. I should have been more sure.
        Auggie: You can't help how you feel.
        Riley: That's the problem. I don't even know how I feel.
        Auggie: I think you do know how you feel. That's why you're scared.

      • Goofs: Michael being on shift the night Sydney was hit by a car, isn't accurate. As that night he was in the hospital, that night, after being thrown through a glass window.

        Sydney claiming it was someone from her past that hit her, is also a goof. As she was hit by Sam and Sam's father, who did not have any motive for wanting Sydney dead.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Jonah: Ella, this video is flat. Taryn looks like the Tin Man who's in serious need of some WD-40.

        This is a reference to the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy, the main character, dreams that she is trying to leave Oz and return home to Kansas. The Tin Man was one of the characters she met in her dream.
