  • Trivia

    • At 35:29 Darien tells Bobby that the other four test subjects were gone. But there were only three remaining subjects.

    • Bobby slams invisible Darien onto the table, causing the glass top to shatter. Yet none of the items on the table even moved, when Darien would have hit them before hitting the glass.

  • Quotes

    • Bobby: Hey, man, you know what? Screw Menzo.
      Darien: It's Mensa.
      Bobby: Whatever. Elitists! Intelligence is experience. It's about effort, okay? Thomas Edison said, "Genius is one percent inspiration and 99% perspiration."
      Darien: And you got the BO to prove it.

    • Darien: A brooding German guy named Schopenhauer said that with increased intelligence comes an increased capacity for pain. So, I guess if ignorance is bliss, then enlightenment is pure hell.

    • (to Dr. Wasser)
      Bobby: Doc, (clears throat) a guy comes in, wins the Nobel Prize, you say, "Congrats, here's a cup, there's a room, go in there and..." You know... (chuckles) You know, you know... "Do what you gotta do," right?

    • (talking to a super-intelligent Hobbes)
      Darien: You're superman? I'm the invisible man. Wow, we just get Wonder Woman, we could really party, you know what I'm saying?
