- This episode is the first time we see Rose and Bernard speak to each other. Of course, the loving couple we’ve been rooting for for weeks is bickering about birthdays. Rose, for some reason, still knows what day it is. Time is important, people!
- The two characters are wearing contrasting colors, as they were in What Kate Did, when Rose wore brown and Bernard wore white.
- Bernard looks for a pearl to give to Rose. There are no oysters on the island, but we’ll be seeing a certain “Pearl” five episodes from now!
- When Jin hears Sawyer and Bernard speak, the dialogue is played backwards like in …In Translation, to make it sound like random gibberish. The conversation goes as follows:
Bernard:“Well, how do you know?”
Sawyer:“Oh, I got my sources.”
Bernard:“Well, aren’t you gonna tell him that?”
Sawyer:“Not my place.”
Bernard:“You should tell him! Or…?”
Sawyer:“Hell no! Let Sunshine tell him!”
