- When all four heros take shelter in a Chinese restaurant, Jessica Jones asks, "What are you on, lithium?". 'Lithium' is a song from the band, Nirvana. This could be a reference to her character being a fan of Nirvana (as seen in her own series), and the fact that Nirvana's, 'Come as You Are', has become the series theme of sorts.
