* FakeAssistedSuicide: Lazarus Long is twenty three hundred years old and just wants to die. The staff of the clinic holding him sabotages his suicide device so that when he tries to use it he's just rendered unconscious instead of dying. They do this so they can continue the rejuvenation process that will make him feel like wanting to live again. The "suicide switch" also wipes his short-term memory so he won't remember that it didn't work and will think that his "grandson" is honoring all terms of the deal.

After Lazarus' rejuvenation, the novel abruptly changes tone and becomes a TimeTravel adventure, as this is among the various suggestions that his friends come up with for things that he might do. Given the vastness of human history to choose from, he elects to visit his own childhood family in Kansas City, Missouri. But a slight miscalculation or two might well end the career of this interstellar traveler for good.

* NoodleIncident: Multiple vague references are made to the "2012 meeting of the Howard families," a gag that started in the previous novel Literature/MethuselahsChildren. Lazarus is even urged to use time travel to go back and record the meeting so everyone will finally know what happened, but he explains it's not possible.
