Einstein's theory of relativity, specifically time dilation, is referred by Matt Parkman as an explanation for Daphne's capacity of traveling through time when running at superluminal speed. Interestingly, one of the first evidences for Einstein's theory of general relativity came during a solar eclipse. Also, the term "Einstein" is often used nowadays to refer to someone who is considered a genius.
During a math test, one of Matt Neuenberg's classmates asks him the answer of a question, calling him "Einstein".
Matt Parkman explains that, due to Einstein's theory of relativity, if Daphne's super speed were supercharged to the point of allowing her to run faster than light, she would be able to travel through time and rescue Hiro. Daphne replies, calling Matt an "Einstein".
- In reality, the explanation of how Daphne is capable of moving back in time is a discontinuity with Einstein's real theory of special relativity. Exceeding the speed of light gives a mathematically meaningless results instead of reversing time.
