Trivia & References

New Guy - This episode is the first time Lucius is introduced.
Continuity Warning - In HtLJ "2.14 - Once A Hero", Castor and Pollux are part of the Argonaut reunion and help Jason retrieve the fleece. Only Pollux tries to claim it as his own.
Continuity Warning - In X:WP "5.08 - Little Problems", Castor and Pollux are shown mud wrestling. Also, they are described as two souls sharing the same body that can separate with the use of special oil.
Pop Culture References and Greekisms - Lucius says, "Come on, we're the dream team." The 1992 United States men's Olympic basketball team, nicknamed the "Dream Team", was the first American Olympic team to feature active NBA players. Described by American journalists as the greatest sports team ever assembled, and called by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame "the greatest collection of basketball talent on the planet", it defeated its opponents by an average of almost 44 points en route to the gold medal against Croatia at the 1992 Summer Olympics held in Barcelona. - Wikipedia
Reality Check - Lucius claims that mistakes can be erased. But did they even have erasers back then, or know what erasing was? According to the The Online Etymology Dictionary, the term "erase" only dates back c.1600, from Latin erasus, pp. of eradere "scrape out, scrape off, shave," from ex- "out" + radere "to scrape".
Déjà Vu - The white robe that Pollux wears is the same robe that Hercules wears in Mila's dream in 1.47 - Mila.
