** When Shadow has been captured by the Spookshow, the goons tell each other a joke about the CIA. ("How do you know the CIA wasn't involved in the Kennedy assassination? Well, he's dead, isn't he?") Later, Easter is about to tell the same joke, but Wednesday says he's heard it. [[spoiler: This is because Wednesday is working with Loki, who runs the Spookshow.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The name "Technical Boy" alludes to the first paragraph in William Gibson's cyberpunk classic short story Johnny Mnemonic. [[note]]"If they think you're crude, go technical; if they think you're technical, go crude. I'm a very technical boy. So I decided to get as crude as possible. These days, though, you have to be pretty technical before you can even aspire to crudeness."[[/note]] The short story also had a film adaptation starring Keanu Reeves, suggesting that the Matrix-emulating Technical Boy may resemble that actor.
