- At the start of the scene in Booth's office when Cam calls, the woman that hands Booth a file is David Boreanaz' mother.
- The showdown scene with the helicopter was the last sequence shot for the entire series.
- Brennan recurring line "I don't know what that means" (first said in Pilot) becomes relevant to the plot in the beginning of the episode, when she says it regarding bone evidence, and her inability to make sense of it.

- Singing "Hot Blooded"
- Booth tells Brennan that they're "better than Mulder and Scully". He told her "We're Scully and Mulder" back in the Pilot. Like 12 years before, she replies "I don't know what that means".
- The last act of the episode features many easter eggs from various past episodes:
- The plaque in memory of Vincent Nigel-Murray, who was killed in The Hole in the Heart. The plaque has appeared many times since.

- Daniel Goodman is the only character in the series whose status and whereabouts is unknown, since at the end of the series it is stated that he is missing.
- Hodgins: Squints of the world unite!
- Brennan: If the thing that made me me is gone, who am I?
Booth: “You’re the woman I love. You’re the woman who kissed me outside a pool hall when it was pouring rain. You took me to shoot Tommy guns on Valentine’s Day. That’s who you are. You’re the one who proposed to me with a stick of beef jerky in her hand even though you’re a vegetarian. You’re the Roxie to my Tony, and the Wanda to my Buck. Who else is gonna sing ‘Hot Blooded’ with me? And besides…we’re way better than Mulder and Scully.”
Brennan: “I don’t know what that means.”
Booth: "I don’t care if you know about the bones or we know how to solve crimes. All I know is that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. This is you. Temperance Brennan. You’re my partner. Don’t forget that."
