This was the second episode of the series to be filmed and was planned to air as such until early buzz about the appearance of Pauley Perrette and rumors of a story arc involving suspicious dealing about Leon Vance prompted postponement while more viewers caught onto the show. See more »


During one conversation Nate implies that he got a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, and a doctor's degree all within the space of only five years; he says that he got his undergraduate degree in three years and his two graduate degrees in only two more years; in the real world, however, it ordinarily takes four years to get a first degree, then usually two more years to get a master's degree, then typically about four more years to get a doctoral degree. That's about ten years, not just five years. See more »
