Did You Know?


The title is always a phrase said by one of the characters in the episode. "Old Man of Hoy" says the line "Separated above, Connected Below." He says this when they Riley is asking him if it's possible to send a message to the other sensates. He says quicker than The internet and that in the 90's it was this group that created google. Just like the internet, when we aren't online through the myriads of social media accounts, emails, websites, and so on, we r very separate. But when we are connected through a series of (underground) wires, we are more connected than ever before in all of history. See more »


When Lito is making his speech at the Pride Parade, his microphone keeps switching back and forth between to very different microphone models. See more »


Old Man of Hoy: What a charming little empty box you've chosen here. All the modern amenities of a prison cell.
Riley Blue: Where are you visiting from?
Old Man of Hoy: I call it my speakeasy 'cause you can speak easy in here. Soundproofing. Eighteen inches thick.
Riley Blue: All the modern amenities of a coffin.
