Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

According to the flashbacks, Rudy/Brian is supposed to be four years older than Dexter. In real life, Christian Camargo (Rudy) is actually four months younger than Michael C. Hall.
Rudy can be seen drinking the fictional 'Jekyll Island Lager'. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde written by Robert Louis Stevenson is a novella about a lawyer investigating the strange incidents between his friend Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde. This work is often associated with the 'split personality' disorder; wherein several personalities exist within the same body, in the case of Jekyll and Hyde there is one good and one evil personality. Therefore the term 'Jekyll and Hyde' refers to someone who has a changeable moral standard from one situation to the next. This is a reference both to Dexter's Dark Passenger living within him and the moral polarity of the brothers.
Contrary to how Brian is killed by Dexter, the novel has LaGuerta confronting Dexter and Brian in the shipping container. Ultimately, ending with Brian shooting LaGuerta and being allowed to escape by Dexter. Unlike later in the TV series, Deb shows little to no pity for her death.
