Did You Know?


All the fake names that Nate reads off in the airport are of actors who have previously portrayed The Doctor in the British sci-fi series Doctor Who (1963). Nate's aliases are Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy and Tom Baker all of whom portrayed The Doctor. Sophie's alias is Sarah Jane Baker, a reference to Sarah Jane Smith, one of The Doctor's companions (portrayed by Elisabeth Sladen). This is most likely due to the fake ID's being made by Hardison, who in an earlier episode remarks about 'torrenting' Doctor Who episodes. See more »


As the team rushes out of GenoGrow toward the airport, several B-roll stock shots are used; first, a generic aerial helicopter shot flying over LA, then a medium distance view of an airport showing planes taxiing and lifting off- including a red and white TWA jet. TWA ceased to exist in 2001. See more »


Parker: [pretending to be an flight attendant] Place the mask over your mouth and nose and breathe normally. In the event of a water landing your seat cushion can be used as a flotation device. But, let's face it, if this thing goes down in the water, more than likely the impact will kill you. Please take a moment to locate the nearest emergency exits because if this plane's on fire you're gonna wanna get out quick. Jet fuel burns at over 1000 degrees. That's hot, folks!
