Sergeant Wu: Ragnarok brings a huge flood... ummm... the sky is on fire, and all life gets swallowed by wolves. So I guess if you're a wolf, that's good news.
Hank Griffin: And yet, I'm not surprised.
Sergeant Wu: I don't think a lot could surprise us, after the year we've had.
Hank Griffin: Year? Try years.
Sergeant Wu: You wish we'd never known?
Hank Griffin: Not at all. Unless the real question is, are we crazy and don't even know it?
Sergeant Wu: I wish I'd never known that.
- SPOILER: When Wu, Hank, and Nick confront Zerstörer at the police station Nick still had the piece of the staff, if it healed Monroe, Eve and even Nick. Why doesn't he use it to bring Hank and Wu back as he brought Eve back after she was dead a little longer.
- When Monroe says that Diana "knows something wicked is this way coming," he's using a reference from Macbeth, the play by William Shakespeare, Act 4, scene 1, in which one of the witches announces the imminent arrival of the title character with the couplet: "By the pricking of my thumbs,/Something wicked this way comes." Ray Bradbury used that second key line for the title of his 1962 novel.
- Just before the Zerstörer attacks the man in the restroom of the gas station, he pulls up and tells the Gas station attendant "$10.00 worth of regular. " or something to that effect. The idea of not pumping your own gas may seem odd to most folks these days, however, in Oregon, and New Jersey there are regulations preventing anyone who is not trained to "place flammable liquids in a vehicle".
- The epigram, "You shall break them with a rod," may come from the Bible, Psalm 2, verse 9: "You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces live a potter's vessel" (English Standard Version).
- SPOILER: The title "Zerstörer Shrugged" is taken from the book by Ayn Rand , Atlas Shrugged.
