Arc Advancement




  • Chett recalls the various things that happened to his head in "Magnifico Dad".


The Show

  • This episode confirms the show is set in California. Lisa's map shows Wyatt is in San Diego County, but the city isn't specified.

Behind the Scenes

  • Scolder's hotel room is clearly a redress of the set of Wyatt's room, complete with the bathroom.

Allusions and References

  • The characters of Agents Scolder and Molly are obvious caricatures of the characters of Mulder and Scully from The X-Files. This parody extends to the on screen text and the character of The Smoker who's clearly based on The Cigarette-Smoking Man.
  • The final scene of the three riding the bomb is based on the 1964 film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
