Did You Know?


When the sheriff goes to the morgue to view Will's (Noah Schnapp) body, he talks to the officer reading "Cujo", later made into the film Cujo (1983), and says he spoke with O'Bannon. O'Bannon is likely a reference to Dan O'Bannon, screenwriter of Alien (1979) and director of The Return of the Living Dead (1985). See more »


One of the military personnel guarding the government lab facility is carrying what appears to be an M9 pistol (a Beretta 92FS built to military specifications). The show is set in 1983, and the US military did not begin adopting the M9 until 1985, with the M9 fully entering service in 1990. See more »


Nancy Wheeler: Have you been doing this a while?
Jonathan Byers: What?
Nancy Wheeler: Photography.
Jonathan Byers: Yeah... I guess I'd rather observe people than... you know...
Nancy Wheeler: Talk to them.
Jonathan Byers: I know. It's weird.
Nancy Wheeler: No!
Jonathan Byers: No, it is! It's just, sometimes... people don't really say what they're really thinking. But when you capture the right moment, it says more.
