The front door of Elena's house has a window in it only in this episode because filming of the series moved out of Vancouver after the pilot.
-The pilot was shot in Vancouver as New Moon, the second film in the Twilight Saga, was also being filmed in the city.
-Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) revealed in interviews that his naturally pointy cuspids went unnoticed until he arrived on set for the pilot shoot in Vancouver.
-According to Paul, he was cast less than two weeks before shooting began in Vancouver. Upon winning the role, he went immediately to a book store and bought and read the series.
-Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) said the showrunners gave the entire cast journals to chronicle their experience during the Vancouver shoot.
-Director Marcos Siega asked his Twitter followers for music suggestions during editing.
-In screener copies of the pilot, "Panic Switch" by Silversun Pickups is used in the opening scene, but the show was unable to get clearance for air. "Sort Of" by Silversun Pickups was used instead.
-935 is the house number of Elena, Jeremy and Aunt Jenna's home.
