Did You Know?
The Captain of the Queen Ann, Yip Harburg (E.Y. Harburg
), is named for the songwriter who, with Harold Arlen
, wrote the music for The Wizard of Oz
(1939). He also wrote Finian's Rainbow and the song "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" that Groucho Marx
sang in At the Circus
(1939). The episode plot takes place in 1939, the same year that both "The Wizard of Oz" and "At the Circus" were released. See more
When Mulder has stolen the parallel Spender's uniform, an SS Untersturmfuehrer's (junior lieutenant's) one, and is trying to sneak away, a lower rank German soldier (probably a petty officer) asks him if he found something. He uses the informal pronoun "du", inconceivable by a subaltern especially in Nazi army, instead of formal "Sie". Instead of "Hast du was gefunden?", he should have said "Haben Sie was gefunden?". However, since the WW2 era sequences are as likely to be a hallucination as time travel, this may be deliberate and based upon Mulder's lack of knowledge. See more
