While there is an overall theme of existentialism and dread in this series, there are of course moments of levity to balance it all out.


The Comedian
  • Didi kissing Samir, and admitting that if she had been straight, she might give Samir a bit of a chance out of respect.
    Didi: If I were straight... I'd picture myself with more of an Idris Elba type.
  • Samir stating that he doesn't want to be an "evil David Copperfield".

Nightmare at 30,000 feet
  • Justin tries to have his neighbor wear his headphones so he could listen to the podcast, but he immediately leaves, saying he doesn't want lice and quickly sits in the seat behind them.
  • Justin's reaction to the fact Joe is the pilot that causes Flight 1015 to disappear: "Oh shit. He's the pilot!", all while "Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra plays as the plane begins to descend.

The Wunderkind
