Episode Quotes
Olivia: Where'd you disappear to?
Peter: I was checking up on Walter. He found the swing set. You know how he feels about Newtonian mechanics.

Peter: There's only one way in. We need a Faraday Cage. It's got to be mobile, something that can block out the electromagnetic field. I can cross through and turn off whatever's causing this.
Olivia: Walter, you need to build a movable...
Walter: I heard the idea. I know what a Faraday Cage is! A baboon would! Astrid! I need a computer battery. And a spool of copper wire. And a climbing harness. And, and, some rubber cement. I think it's in my Spider-Man fanny pack.

Astrid: Here. Walter calls this the Walter Bishop Faraday Harness. He wanted me to tell you that.

Olivia: Just so you know, there'll be an FBI agent stationed out the front.
Peter: Where I would run to? So hey, do I get an allowance?
Olivia: I'll see what I can do.

Olivia: I was important to you, wasn't I? I mean, the other version of me. 'Cause I see the way you look at me when you think that I'm not aware.
Peter: Yeah. Yeah, she was. She is.
Olivia: Well, I hope that you get back to her.
Peter: Thank you. Me too.

Cultural References
Peter: What is a time loop? Like, Groundhog Day?

Groundhog Day (1993) features Bill Murray as a weather reporter trapped in a town where February 2 keeps repeating over and over for him, and he's the only one aware of it.
