Didja Notice?

 

Kate tells Steel that on Saturday she was planning to go to the movies to see Casablanca. Casablanca is a classic film noir romantic film from 1942 starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

 

The Nostalgia dredges up a memory of Eric's from May 14, 1974 when he was caught in an earthquake in California. There were, as usual, several small earthquakes in various parts of California that day.

 

At 15:55 in the episode, the "What's the matter, Fido?" song first heard in "Cruel Immortality" Part 2 is heard in Steel's memories at the prodding of the Nostalgia here.

 

When Sapphire springs her camera trap on the Nostalgia, she remarks, "What I really wanted to do is direct." This refers to Hollywood culture and the trope that what seasoned actors really want to do is direct (plays, movies, TV, radio dramas, etc.).

 

When Sapphire traps the Nostalgia in a digital video camera, she inadvertently gives him access to virtually every person in the world through broadcast capability. The Nostalgia is delighted, already seeing a waitress in Paris (France), a farmer in Bulahdelah (New South Wales, Australia), and a schoolboy in Cokesbury (a number of towns by this name).

 

At 28:19 in the episode, the Nostalgia offers to let Sapphire and Steel forget the people whose deaths they caused in past assignments, naming as suggestions Tully (died in "The Railroad Station" Part 8) and (Jennifer) Sowersby (whose devastating death took place in "Daisy Chain" Part 4).
