** Friends close, enemies closer. Cyril may dislike Malory, but a) he's better off keeping her where he can keep an eye on her, b) the rebels hold the airport, so there's no place for her to go if he throws her out, which leads to c) if he does throw her out, she'll go straight to the rebels and come and overthrow ''him'', and d) she doesn't really seem to care what he does as long as he keeps her glass full.

*** It also wouldn't have cost them an agent, since actually researching things before would not have caused a situation where Archer started shooting at masked burglars.

** In Season 2 Episode 5 Woodhouse says that the tontine he started in UsefulNotes/WW1 is worth about 1 000 000$ that started at 1200 pounds. Without converting pounds to dollars I used the equation n=ln(CV/PV)/ln(1+r) where CV is the current value, PV is the past value, r is the rate of interest which Woodhouse says is 10%, and n is the number of years. n=ln(1000000/1200)/ln(1.1)=~71. Since the tontine was started during the war it can be assumed that Archer season 2 takes place between 1985 and 1989.

** It basically should be around 1975, given that Wodehouse is a UsefulNotes/WW1 vet, Malory is a UsefulNotes/WW2 vet, Archer age and approximate date of birth, and the Cold War is still going. But none of the tech or anything else fits with that so roll with it.

* Why, exactly, were the ISIS crew blacklisted for the failure in Drastic Voyage? They did what they were sent to do - bust the clot, make their way out through the tear duct. If anything, it looked like the doctor was draining tears from the wrong eye, as the display shows them on the right eye and the doctor is draining the left eye. Sure, Kreiger's smashing the mainframe probably didn't earn them much goodwill, but the ISIS crew (barring Archer purging the airlock) didn't screw up at all.

** That's not necessarily a coal furnace. The house I grew up in had a gas furnace from the 1920s with a similar (albeit smaller) door. It was used to access the pilot light.

** She tried to intervene. You can hear her saying "Archer . . ." like she wants to tell him something right after he says "God, you of all people," to Ray, but Archer and Ray don't seem to hear her over their argument. She probably assumed that Ray heard him and didn't pursue it; there was a time limit after all.

She then tries to get Ray's attention, but he just plows ahead with the defusal. She probably assumed that Ray heard him and didn't pursue it; there was a time limit after all.

** TL;DR: She's a OneHitWonder. There are ''plenty'' of those in the music industry. Or even if she had multiple hits, people might only really care about her for one album and then move on in short order, unless she kept their interest up somehow, so they wouldn't notice or care when no sophomore album came along.
