Peter - S2-E16

Trivia: The story is set mainly in 1985. During a scene in the other universe, the observers are outside of a cinema which is showing Back to the Future - with Eric Stoltz as the star rather than Michael J Fox. Stoltz was originally hired to play Marty, but was fired after filming started and Fox was brought in to play the role of Marty.

The toy airplane he got as a child from ... Walter's wife when she was trying to placate him in an earlier episode for trying to run "home". This toy airplane wouldn't have been his as a child in this version of the universe.
