Allusions and References

  • The title of the episode and the arc involving Wyatt are based on the science fiction series Quantum Leap. Not only from lifting the special effect of Wyatt "leaping", but also him seeing someone else's reflection in the mirror, and, upon finding himself in a situation over his head, utters "Oh, boy." Not only did Manasseri guest star in an episode, but both shows are owned by Universal.
  • The gritty realism and shaky cam of the police department scenes are obviously done to parody NYPD Blue.
