* BizarroEpisode: Season 2 episode 20, "Brown Betty". Season 3 episode 19, "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide". No, it's not a coincidence that both are named after (and involve use of) mind-altering drugs.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic -- The {{Eye Catch}}es show a peculiarly changed item, such as a cross-section of an apple with fetuses (feti?) as the seeds, or a frog with the Greek letter Phi, or Φ, printed on it, along with a point of light. TheOtherWiki says Phi is used as a symbol for several interesting subjects, such as electric or magnetic flux in physics, a shorthand representation for an aromatic functional group in organic chemistry (which relates directly to the pilot episode), and a sentence in first-order logic.

*** This was intentionally done. The actor had previously appeared in the StarTrekDeepSpaceNine two-parter "Past Tense" playing basically the same character: someone suffering a mental illness in the year 2024 who believed aliens were among us. The Star Trek reboot also premiered 4 days after the episode aired.

** Richard Steig from the [[Recap/FringeS01E01Pilot Pilot]] is an employee of [[MegaCorp Massive Dynamic]] who was asked to steal research into airborne viral contagions - research that had been conducted by the scientists Walter Bishop and William Bell decades earlier. Stieg was able to manufacture a flesh-melting contagion that causes the infected individual's [[BodyHorror skin to decompose in a matter of seconds]]. The contagion was then smuggled onto Flight 627 in his twin brother Morgan Steig's insulin pen. He chose Morgan to show his "commitment" for potential buyers for the toxin. Everyone on the plane died when the toxin made them crystalize.
** David Esterbrook from season 1's "[[Recap/FringeS01E06TheCure The Cure]]" was the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive head]] of the pharmaceutical research division of the company [=INtREPUS=]. Esterbrook, to make money, created a program that would forcibly abduct and turn young women who suffered from a rare disease into unknowing radiation suicide bombers. He tested this on a cafe full of innocent people, causing their brains to boil and burst. After the first test, Esterbrook simply opted to repeat the process, showing no remorse or hesitation when confronted by special agent Olivia Dunham.
** The [[OlderThanTheyLook artificially youthful]] [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] MadScientist Alfred Hoffman from season 2's "[[Recap/FringeS02E14TheBishopRevival The Bishop Revival]]" was an unrepentant {{Sociopath}} who survived the war and went into hiding. Decades later, Hoffman resurfaces with his greatest creation: a toxin he engineers to target specific genetic strains. He first tests it on a Holocaust survivor and her family at a wedding. He later tests it on a cafe to confirm its effectiveness and the fact he can use it to kill anyone not part of his "MasterRace." Before Walter Bishop [[HoistByHisOwnPetard turns the toxin on Hoffman himself,]] Hoffman is about to deliver it at a human rights conference to kill everyone there.
