When the people take refuge in Burt's bunker, it's (according to Burt's orders) 5:30 pm. Only a few minutes pass by until Burt sets the fire outside yet it's already pitch black.
Twitchell: Bet you wish you had one of those watches that told you I was coming - a Twitchometer.
Tyler: If I was a Shrieker, that Dr. Flynn could sure make me sit up and beg.
(The lights go out during the Shrieker attack)
Tyler: They shorted the generator.
(Lights turn back on)
Burt: Back-up back-up generator.
Twitchell: It won't budge. Because it's a Gummer kind of door!
Twitchell: I'm just saying it's overkill. (Burt's) whole life is overkill!
Burt: What's the catch?
Twitchell: ...probably nothing.
Tyler: Which usually means something - what is it?
This episode marks the first time a woman has been killed by a Graboid or one of its evolutions (in this case, a Shrieker) in the series and only the second overall. (Megan, played by the late Bibi Besch, suffocated when a Graboid buried the station wagon in which she tried to hide in the original film.)
