When Bill and Bob are doing movement exercises on one of the buildings at PSIC, Bill trances out and falls off the building. Bob gets off the building and runs up to Bill, asking, "Are you OK?" Bill says, "I just saw Timothy Leary." Bob replies, "Timothy Leary's dead." This is a sly reference to the song "Legend of a Mind" from The Moody Blues' July 1968 LP release "In Search of the Lost Chord". The opening lines go: "Timothy Leary's dead./No, no no no/He's outside/Looking in."

The filmmakers ask that no one attempt walking through walls, cloudbursting while driving, or staring for hours at goats with the intent of harming them... invisibility is fine.
