Didja Notice?


Keller boards a light rail in Argon City bound for another city called Bismuth.


At 5:36 in the episode, a pair of emergency escape wing chutes are seen stowed on the light rail. They just happen to have below them the warning, "Never deploy in front of helicopter." And it just so happens that the light rail is being pursued by Pavel's helicopter!


The doors that close inside the light rail train to seal off sections have html code (language for creating web pages) printed on them!
