* RedHerring: Cisco makes an extensive effort to decipher the symbols that Barry writes all over the walls. Once he has his EurekaMoment he finally manages to discover that the message is... "This House is Bitchin'". This may be InfallibleBabble of some kind.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: To show that Iris is heartbroken, she does not let Wally make jokes about defeating Peek-A-Boo.
