Goofs

At the beginning of the scene of the meeting between Allsafe, ECorp, and the FBI, Rami is seen sitting at the table with the blue folder in front of him. Shortly after, Rami pulls out the white folder and places it in front of him on an empty table where the blue folder was seen just moments before that. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Elliot: Hello, friend. Hello, friend? That's lame. Maybe I should give you a name. But that's a slippery slope. You're only in my head. We have to remember that.

Alternate Versions

In the original version of the pilot, Elliot's opening monologue is longer: he explains to the audience that he does not believe dinosaurs existed, but does believe in aliens. Ron's Coffee Shop was originally called Phil's and his dialogue included more of Ron's background. Ollie was an Iranian character named Ali. The role of hacker Romero was recast following the screening of the pilot at SXSW, and the scenes were re-shot. In the original pilot Romero was played by Michael Buscemi, the brother of actor Steve Buscemi. See more »
