Hiro asks a pigeon for help while hanging on a pole, but then realizes he is talking to an animal.
"What's this all about anyways?"
"The birds. I mean, you sort of hate everything, everyone. Except you treat these pigeons like they're family."
- Pigeons are birds that commonly nest in urban areas; they are noted for their ability to return to their nests from great distances. Wild pigeons are widely considered nuisance animals, while domesticated pigeons can be used to carry messages.
- During the commentary for Five Years Gone cast members noted that wild pigeons live in the soundstage where Isaac's loft is.
- Pigeons belongs to the same family as doves. In Heroes, both Claude's pigeons and Ishi's dove live on the top floor of Charles Deveaux's building.
Though he cares for them, he does not keep them. Claude feels this is an expression of free will.
Isaac paints Claude's pigeons, among other things.
