Several times in this episode we see a V being formed by people or objects. One example of this, is when Anna talks to her medical staff and they are all standing in the shape of a V. Also, in the end of the episode, the armada of Visitor ships is also aligned as a V.
(Anna shows Tyler the engine room)
Anna: This is the propulsion system we use on each of our twenty-nine ships. This... is the engine room.
Tyler: (enraptured) You gotta be kidding me.
Anna: No human has ever seen this before. You are the first, Tyler. (smiles) I thought you'd like it.
Ryan: Everything that I've told you is true.
Erica: Except that you're a Visitor.
Erica: (talking about how to react against the Vs) The more predictable we are, the more vulnerable we are.
Ryan: Everything that Anna does is calculated.
Ryan: This thing that Anna's calling a vitamin injection. She's lying.
Lisa: (On Tyler meeting her mother for the first time) Don't worry. She doesn't bite.
Erica: (To Ryan) He called you a traitor. Are there other V's like you fighting against Anna?
Erica: (To Ryan) How do you know so much about the V's?
Anna: What you've seen today, Tyler, is only the beginning.
Anna: (To Tyler) I think it's universal instinct for mothers to be protective of their young.
Anna: We can't afford any kind of dissonance among our people.
Anna: We've developed an injection. Call it a vitamin supplement designed to strengthen the immune sysyem.
Georgie: (To Father Jack) Pretty soon you need to decide what you are. A priest or soldier.
Lisa: I thought it might take longer, but I think Tyler's ready.
