Unlike other episodes where Walter cannot seem to remember Astrid's name he correctly remembers it twice in this episode. First when expressing concern to Peter asking "Astrid was followed?" as he enters the car after being picked up by Peter in China Town. Second being when he returns to the lab to check on Astrid he calls out "Astrid" looking for her to see if she's okay. See more
When Walter describes his health status after the encounter with the worm, he mentions his "white blood count" being "through the roof". In fact, a very high (through-the-roof) white blood count (above normal) would be a sign of infection. See more

My name is Walter. The Number 5 bus hasn't stopped here for over two hours. Not that it matters. I used up all my bus fare to dial seven wrong numbers. I can't remember Peter's number. I know it's got three fives, a one, a zero, and two sevens... but for the life of me, I can't remember the correct sequence.
