Episode Notes
Sara is seen carrying a large piece of bamboo though the lab. This seems to be a running joke among production. Large, unmanageable props are usually carried through the lab by either Sara or Catherine.

Nick: (Walking in) Whatever happened to "take on down and pass it around"? That was the best part.
Greg: You know us lab rats have to do something to get through the day.

Gil: This is the last art house left in Vegas. I saw Baraka here, on a double bill with Koyaanisquatsi.
Catherine: Was there anyone else here?
Gil: Sure.
Catherine: With you?
Gil: No.

This is a repeat of the joke from "Pledging Mr. Johnson" regarding the calamari restaurant.

Catherine: Whoo! Theatres are like nightclubs; they should always keep the lights off.

Greg makes a similar reference regarding nightclubs in "Viva Las Vegas".
