Trivia: To illustrate where her speech is placed on the itinerary, Fred compares it to a baseball player batting between Nomar Garciappara and Sammy Sosa, who both played with the Chicago Cubs. While Garciappara wouldn't join that team until well after the episode aired, and nobody could have known what would happen two years in the future, it's not a mistake; but as a Cubs fan, I find it an interesting choice of comparison.

Right after Cordelia has her vision, Wesley goes to the whiteboard. In the "Case" column he writes "N.D.U.O." underneath what looks like "CARYNSS" crossed out. But once they find out that it is a Prio Motu demon and Angel writes it on the whiteboard, "N.D.U.O." disappears even though Angel did not rub it off.
