The next morning, Julia looks at the map she took from Barbie's jacket. When he comes down, she quickly hides it. Barbie asks if she's doing okay and she checks her medicine and says that she's getting a headache.

Episode Quotes
Joe: Is that really normal?
Norrie: You're a mutant, like Wolverine.
Joe: You know X-Men?
Norrie: I know a lot of stuff.

Linda: You were my third-grade teacher.
Mrs. Moore: Of course. I remember you, Linda.
Linda: You were an amazing teacher.
Mrs. Moore: Oh, you were a terrible student.

Mrs. Moore: If you told me yesterday that the idea of Junior Rennie brandishing a shotgun would be reassuring... I'd have laughed my head off.

Carolyn: What have you two been doing all day?
Norrie: Oh, just making out and stuff.
Alice Calvert: Right. It's the "stuff" that usually worries us.

Episode Goofs
When Nurse Adams gives Linda the antibiotic injection, she injects it directly into the IV bag. This would simply cause a leak in the IV bag. Proper procedure would be to inject it into the line.

Cultural References
Norrie: Nope, you're a mutant like Wolverine.

The feral Wolverine is a mutant member of the X-Men, a Marvel Comics team of individuals born as homo superior. Many of them possess "superpower" mutations, and Wolverine can heal at an accelerated rate. He also possessed an indestructible "adamantium" skeleton, making him almost unkillable.
