Trivia

When Phillip drives away, the screen shows four movie posters. The latest released of these movies is Wall Street (1987), released on December 11, 1987. As indicated in the opening text, this means the episode is around 3 years after the immediately preceding episode (the last episode of Season 5) See more »

Goofs

Paige is supposedly waiting in her car near the Naval Observatory but the building is #55. Washington, DC is built on a grid with the Capitol in the center. #55 would be in the same block as the Capitol. The address of the Naval Observatory is 3450 Massachusetts Avenue, 34 blocks away from the Capitol. Clearly these scenes were not shot in DC. See more »
