Trivia

When Margot(Summer Bishil) is talking with Eliza(Esmè Blanco) she mentions that there is "some kind of timey-wimey magic going on here". This is a reference to phrase the tenth Doctor(David Tennant), on the BBC show Doctor Who, used to describe time in the 10th episode of the 3rd series "Blink", "People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually - from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint- its more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... timey-wimey... stuff".

Quotes

Quentin Coldwater: It's the Mosaic.
Eliot Waugh: What's the Mosaic?
Quentin Coldwater: The Mosaic. The puzzle?
Eliot Waugh: Nope.
Quentin Coldwater: It's... You use tiles... Are you kidding me? You use the tiles to create a design that reflects the beauty of all life, and when you do, there's a mystery prize. You've really, you've never heard of this?
Eliot Waugh: "The beauty of all life"? Sounds appropriately vague and impossible. What's the prize?
Quentin Coldwater: A so-called key to greater magic.
Eliot Waugh: Don't you love it when the metaphors turn out to be literal?

A must watch episode.

It is always a wonder to me how much story can be told with almost no dialogue. A truly well written episode.
