Trivia: The man who is homeless in "our" world, and is running for the U.S. Senator in the parallel universe, is the episode's director, Andy Tennant, making a memorable cameo appearance.

Grigory the Wanderer

Trivia: On the equation on Quinn's chalkboard, T squared ("T2") appears in several places, a nod to Tracey Torme, Co-director of the series.

Trivia: Doesn't the timer look a lot like a cell phone? That is because the prop was constructed from the base of an old Nokia. Other timer props used throughout the series were from Sega controllers or Universal remotes.

Trivia: During the scan of Quinn's room, we see a surfboard leaning against the wall. Jerry O'Connell is a surfing enthusiast in real life.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Trivia: Cleavant Derricks actually did sing the national anthem at Candlestick Park. The footage was meant to be used as a daydream sequence he would have while in jail, but for budget and other reasons it was not included in the show. (Producers say that the heavily-embellished version he sang was a big hit with the crowd).

Season 2 generally

Trivia: During the intro for the Season 2 episodes, Quinn talks about some of the worlds that they have visited. When he does this, a clip of the episode is played. The first two match up, but the third, he describes as "a world where San Francisco is a maximum security prison" and footage of a different episode is played. It's the footage of the world where a virus has killed most males and the men in the group are kept in a breeding center for repopulation. It may be a little similar, if not for the episode in which San Francisco really is a maximum security prison, which is what one of the characters says verbatim after confusing reactions from the Sliders.


As Time Goes By - S2-E13

Other mistake: The Sliders discover the reverse-time issue when they notice that the clock on the wall is backward. However, in other shots, clocks look normal. Look carefully at the clocks on the judge's desk as the camera pans by.
