Trivia

The acrobat can move forward and backward along the rope. But the flea can move forward and backward as well as side to side. If the flea keeps walking to one side, it goes around the rope and winds up where it started. So the acrobat has one dimension, and the flea has two dimensions, but one of these dimensions is a small closed loop. So the acrobat cannot detect any more than the one dimension of the rope, just as we can only see the world in three dimensions, even though it might well have many more. This is impossible to visualize, precisely because we can only visualize things in three dimensions. See more »

Goofs

We get the first in-depth look at the neighborhood houses in this episode. Conspicuously missing: TV antennas. In 1983, most every house would have had a roof-top antenna or an aerial tower. Cable television was just making its inroads into suburbia and small-town America at the time. See more »

Quotes

Joyce Byers: Maybe I am a mess. Maybe I'm crazy. Maybe I'm out of my mind! But, God help me, I will keep these lights up until the day I die if I think there's a chance that Will's still out there!
