** Well, the security on de-bronzing appears to be new (Leena was able to de-bronze people, and no one questioned that Claudia could). Maybe they didn't realize they needed security on both ends?

** The Season 2 Christmas episode "Secret Santa" likely takes place between the events of S2E8 "Merge With Caution" and S2E9 "Vendetta", as the stockings from "Merge With Caution" are mentioned, but the events of "Vendetta" are not. The Season 3 Christmas episode "The Greatest Gift" takes place between the events of S3E7 "Past Imperfect" and S2E8 "The 40th Floor", because the episode mentions Steve as if he's still a Warehouse agent (he leaves the Warehouse in "The 40th Floor") and features Trailer (who joined in "Past Imperfect").

** Perhaps he didnt, Perhaps she somehow knew from an external source, like research on bronzing in her own time, or perhaps it was a lucky guess.

* Why was Claudia not arrested - she travels by plane and was issued a 'wanted' document (sorry I don't know the English name). And how does CERN have enough antimatter to fuel anything (no, DanBrown is not a specialist)?

** Don't forget that the scenario was most likely not winnable by its nature. H.G. only beats it by CHEATING after all.

** One, because flashing a badge of any kind will often give you greater authority within that interaction (see {{Chinatown}}). Two, it might work. Three, the Secret Service is responsible for physical security for not just the President of the US, but also many other American political figures. Add to that fact that they are part of the Department of Homeland Security (formerly under the Treasury Department) and frequently investigate counterfeiting (often an international crime), and it might just be the most effective possible American agency to claim to be with when outside of the US.

** Though this troper agrees it's occasionally all over the place especially in the way that artifacts gain their power (half seem made, other seem to gain power by proxy of someone extraordinary), in most cases, there's suggested to be at least some sort of scientific explanation for it (silver nitrate, jade, radiation, whatever). The difference between things like the Farnsworth and other ones are probably more about the level of understanding of humanity; they just don't understand enough about, say, the Man Ray camera to explain it beyond a trivial level. There may not be any real distinction, just a matter of usage and understanding. Until something is fully understood, the warehouse keeps it locked up. After all, there really hasn't been any attempt to goo 'regular' technology so we can't say that it wouldn't neutralize it. For something like the Farnsworth and the Tesla, it's probably a matter of retaining an advantage as both are apparently well understood (both by warehouse science and regular science).

* Why is there a row of Harrier Jump Jets (unsure if the jets are the RAF version or the USMC version) in the front of the warehouse? These can be seen in the opening title sequence during a camera pan where the camera's POV goes over the office's balcony and deeper into the warehouse. It may be necessary to do frame by frame to fully see the planes. Troper is interested to find out if these will eventually be incorporated into an episode.
