Later on, however, this gets subverted, as the team eventually realizes that they can just use their real names.

--->'''Flynn:''' He is ''not'' Wesley Snipes! That license is a forgery!\\
'''Hamer:''' It's got the stamp. You can't fake that.

** In another episode, Ray Palmer introduced himself to the scientists who worked on the future of his technology as Dr. [[Film/SilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]], making this something of a "Mr. ''Past'' Pop-Culture Reference"...which makes one wonder how he knew that name would be forgotten in the future.
