Fringe Event: Amber quarantine resuscitation

Location: Franklin Station, Brooklyn; Nanuet; Riverdale Mutal, Bronx

Trivia: Lincoln attributes the quote "the stuff that dreams are made of" to Cary Grant. That line is from the classic 1941 film noir The Maltese Falcon, which really starred Humphrey Bogart, not Cary Grant (one of many references to the ways in which the alternative universe is a little different from ours). The line as used in the original Maltese Falcon is itself a paraphrase from Shakespeare's play "The Tempest": "We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep."

  • Walternate states that the first time the amber quarantine had to be used was on October 17th, 1989 and 63 civilians were trapped inside. October 17th, 1989 is the date of the famous San Francisco earthquake which resulted in 63 fatalities.

Observer Sighting--The Observer lingers fifteen feet to the left of Olivia's parked vehicle when Agent Francis informs Colonel Broyles that her car is parked near the Riverdale Mutual quarantine site.
