    • QUOTES (2)

      • Tim: (impatient for his predicted storm to appear) You wonder why sometimes we drive out here, in the middle of nowhere waiting for a thunderstorm? I mean, don't I have better things to do with my life? No! I'm out here in the middle of frickin' nowhere with scrub brush and snakes and racoons, and all kinds of other assorted garbage. And for what? Water vapor!
        Carl: I see this being for research purposes.
        Tim: Well, right now, I don't feel very research-y.

      • Joel: (Skeptical about the day's tornado potential) Three to one odds you guys don't see tornadoes.
        Reed: Why are you betting against us? Why the negative energy? We're trying to be positve here.
        Joel: 'Cause I'm forecasting. I'm not wish-casting.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Teams Dominator and TWISTEX intercept the EF0 southeast of Whites City, New Mexico that touched down on April 28, 2009. The next day all three teams converge on an EF1 (identified in the episode as an EF2) near South Plains, Texas, and later, its smaller EF0 sister tornado. Neither tornado did much damage except knock down a few trees and power poles.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Sean: (ticked that Reed's just passed him in his new red "SRV Dominator") Of all the chasers, in all the gin joints, on this rural road in New Mexico, we got to run into a red shoe.

        Sean is paying homage to the well known movie Casablanca. Humphrey Bogart, playing Rick, says of his ex-girlfriend Ilsa when she arrives at his North African bar, "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."
