- Scott Borman: You do know, of course, that "zoonotic" doesn't mean that the viruses came from the zoo.
- Robert Goren: It doesn't? Well, my partner was telling me that, but it doesn't make sense to me, because there's the word "zoo"...

- Roger Stern: What are you talking about? They were debased, humiliated. I turned them into the corn cob in the pig sty, with that rutting hog on top of them. They'd look at me... wanting me to call him off!
Background information and notes
- Originally, Andrew McCarthy was supposed to play the role of Dr. Roger Stern, but he stormed off set, compaining that Vincent D'Onofrio was constantly criticizing his acting during the rehearsals. As a result, James Urbaniak was brought in at the last minute.
- As this episode ends, two grams of anthrax bacterium go missing, which leads into the season finale episode "A Person of Interest".
