"A large metallic sphere with strange markings" allegedly crashed in a field near Quennell's house. A newspaper article – titled "Simmersville Crash Alien Spaceship?" – was written about the incident; Wesley Toomey kept a copy of the article.
- Quennell is named for Haven art director Terry Quennell.
- In "Lay Me Down" Quennel's name appears on the Herald's delivery map, which was last updated in May. If you follow Watsonian thinking, then Quennel has moved from Simmersville to Haven and is now working for the Teagues. Doylistically speaking the Haven production team simply reused the name.
