Trivia

The cabbie is named Henry Higgins. In G. B. Shaw's play 'Pygmalian' and the movie adaptation 'My Fair Lady' Henry Higgins was the upper class linguist, or at least phoneticist, who taught a tatterdemalion guttersnipe proper English. See more »

Goofs

When they realized that the experiment to transfer alternate Olivia's memory to our world Olivia, was successful, Brandon explained to Walter that alternate Olivia's "memory B-lymphocytes where carried across the blood-brain barrier and successfully transferred the memories". This is not possible as memory B-lymphocytes have nothing to do with memories as they are merely cells of the immune system that produce antibodies and are absolutely not related to neuronal cells. At best, one could imagine that a memory B-cell transplant might have protected our world Olivia against infection that alternate Olivia suffered earlier in life but certainly not transferred her memory.

"Olivia" is another excellent episode of this promising season. The poor Olivia is absolutely trapped in the alternate universe and now completely manipulated by the evil Secretary. Meanwhile the other Olivia is having good-time with Peter. Every fan is certainly looking forward to see the next episodes. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Olivia"
