Chosen answer: - Now hold my hand. - Yes, sweetie. - Now the story. - What story is that, sweetheart? La notte di San Lorenzo. San Lorenzo, who is...? My patron saint. And saint of my father's village. That's right. And what happened to him? He was in Rome. Mm-hm. And... I forgot. Well, many years ago...the bad guy says to him "Bring us the riches of your church." And Lorenzo, he brings them the beggars and the sick people... -...and he says... - "These are our riches." Yes! - Bravo, Lorenzo, bravo. - That's wonderful, sweetheart. So clever. And tonight, August 10th, is... La notte di San Lorenzo. The night of the shooting stars. When anything can happen.

Deliberate mistake: When Michaela reads "The Once and Future King" to Lorenzo, she doesn't start at the beginning, even though she's never read him that book before. Not only does she not open the book to the first page, the words she reads are not at the beginning of the book (I believe they are about three or four chapters in).

Augusto Odone: Michaela! They are the same enzyme! There is one enzyme for both chains. It's the same bloody enzyme.
