* GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel: For an episode that involves both time travel and the Nazi's, surprisingly averted. Despite the Nazi's getting their hands on a nuclear bomb ahead of the allies, and destroying New York City with it, they still lost World War II (which did however last 2 years longer in this timeline and resulted in 12 million more deaths).

** While the workings of the atomic bomb were based on Einstein's theories, he was in no way involved in the practical application of those theories that actually produced the bomb. So kidnapping him (let alone Mileva Marić, who would know even less about how to build a bomb) would hardly be the best way for the Nazis to acquire an atomic bomb. It would be far more efficient to kidnap the scientists involved in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Project the Manhattan Project]], which began in the same year this episode takes place. Since the Nazis are being helped by a time traveler from the future, they should know this.

It also seems that his ex-wife is actually ''smarter'' than he is who really came up with many of the nuclear breakthroughs credited to Einstein. Just to twist the knife further, Einstein prefers ''[[DumbMuscle Rory]]'', of all people.
