Moles, investigating the source of a musical piece, intones: "di-di-di-daah" into a microphone attached to a computer. This intonation is of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. (Opus 67) - namely, the distinctive opening four-note motif of short-short-short-long notes. See more
Miles books a ticket on TWA flight 129 from Los Angeles to San Francisco just as a final boarding call announcement for that flight begins.

After the closing credits have run, a multicolored question mark appears in the lower right corner of the screen with a computer-like sound. After this, the line "ELECTRIC DREAMS FINISHED" appears in green at the upper left corner. The question mark is replaced by the line "no more?" Then the green text is replaced by "TIME TO DISCONNECT". Both then disappear, and multicolored letters appear near the center of the screen reading "THE NED". The "N" is quickly deleted, the "E" moved over, and the "N" is reinserted to properly spell "THE END". As this disappears, Edgar's voice is heard laughing, and he says "H-hello? Hello? Good-goodbye."
