Trivia: Towards the end when Caitlin and Iris are talking about her cousin they mention Midway. That's the city of Hawkman and Hawkgirl.


Things You Can't Outrun - S1-E3

Trivia: The movie Barry and Iris are leaving is entitled Blue Devil II. A reference to DC Comics superhero Blue Devil, who was a stuntman that worked on the in-universe "Blue Devil" films.

Harrison Wells: Ramone, could you just please? Have you ever worked with a tool before?
Cisco: I'm working with one now.
