Event Chronology

Episode Connections



  • When Ivy enters the pub, Roni is pouring four shots of MacCutcheon Scotch Whisky,[5] a fictional brand on Lost. However, when she sees Ivy, Roni removes the bottle and snidely remarks that they have a strict "no whisky for witches" policy.

Fairytales and Folklore

Popular Culture

  • The song playing in the background when Jacinda and Lucy visit Roni's together is "Float" by Jude Shuma.
    • The same song could be heard when Henry was having drinks with Ivy in "Beauty", and when Henry was sitting at the bar and received a text message from Jacinda in "A Taste of the Heights".
  • Henry says to Rogers, "Aside from seeing me at geek DEFCON 1, what are you doing here?"; a reference to DEFCON (DEFense readiness CONdition), an alert state used by the United States Armed Forces.
  • The game Henry is playing at Flynn's Barcade is Galaga, an arcade game in which the player controls a spaceship battling a fleet of aliens. The in-game ship was the inspiration for an animated logo that plays at the end of every Kitsis/Horowitz production.[6]
  • Nick remarks that there are plenty of women who would find Henry's John Hughes outlook charming, a reference to the famous American filmmaker who directed and/or scripted some of the most successful comedy films of the 1980s and early 1990s.
  • When Roni returns to the bar at the end of the episode and finds Mr. Samdi there, "Lost in the Sun" by Joe Marson is playing in the background.
