Trivia

The background of Tommy Volker established early in the episode- that he is an entrepreneur in civilian space flight, and an environmental advocate- is strikingly similar to that of Elon Musk. The American business magnate is the founder and CEO of SpaceX, a private space transport company, and Musk has a personal goal of creating a space-faring civilization. He is also the CEO of Tesla Motors, has co-founded a solar energy company, and is a well-known environmental philanthropist. See more »

Goofs

The car accident would have been handled by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The fictitious CBI as a criminal investigative agency would not be called to a traffic accident. See more »

Quotes

Teresa Lisbon: Volker is not going to get away with this. I'm gonna get him. If not for the murder, then for whatever Amanda Shaw can give me. Tax evasion, fraud, unpaid parking tickets. I'm gonna bring in Amanda and lean on her.
Patrick Jane: Look at you! So tough! I'm getting goosebumps. Rawr.
