This episode follows David Robert Jones' attempts to open a doorway to the parallel universe while the Fringe team tries to stop him. It ends with FBI agent Olivia Dunham discovering a startling secret about Massive Dynamic founder William Bell.
This episode's glyphs spell:
Walter visited the grave of his son Peter Bishop which said he died in 1985 despite being in the series as a healthy adult man this whole time.
The Observer escorts Walter Bishop to the beach house.
In one of Olivia's glimpses of the alternate universe in 'The Road Not Taken' a building has "HE IS HERE" graffitied on its side, referencing William Bell being in the alternate universe in 'There's More Than One of Everything'.
A pirate flag (skull and crossbones) appears on a TV monitor in 'There's More Than One of Everything', a reference to the Shapeshifter ability to remodel his skull and bones in 'A New Day in the Old Town'.

... all mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated. God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice...
But I resisted the translation. There was one chapter I simply could not let go.
I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. ... I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.
The patch worked. But if the walls continue to crumble, anomalies will occur with increasing frequency, the ripples spreading ever wider. Is there any chance we can heal the breach in time?
Keeping time, time, time
As he knells, knells, knells
In a happy Runic rhyme,
To the rolling of the bells -
Of the bells, bells, bells -
It was Belly all along. He always knew how to prod the deepest thoughts from my brane. I remember that lunatic perched a bucket of icy water over the lab door, so I'd douse myself upon returning from the coffee shop. I didn't mind the water so much as the knot in my head from the pain crashing down. But the clashing rhythms of shivering body and throbbing head (13 shivers to every 8 throbs, 21 to every 13) focused my attention on out-of-phase frequencies. Kenneth, what is the frequency? Simply the limit of an infinite sequence.
I finally put the pieces together, but the answer should have been obvious all along. S. S. Kresge would have understood. After all, it was he who specified the precise dimensions of the laboratory. All I had to do was follow the golden spiral to its center, and there it was -- buried, right where the tank used to be.
A hole in the fabric of the universe, and another in my heart. Now I must return to it. No, 'tis not so deep as a well, nor so wide as a church-door; but 'tis enough, 'twill serve: ask for me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man.
This mirrors Massive Dynamic's slogan revealed in "Pilot": "What do we do? What don't we do."
Jones' goal in "There's More Than One of Everything" is to visit and impress William Bell in the Redverse (played by Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock in Star Trek).
Getting shot had virtually no effect on him in "There's More Than One of Everything" because of how his teleportation changed his body. This could also imply that Jones needed to go to a different world to get the kind of medical assistance he required.
Both Peters have their own coin in "Peter".
Walter kidnapped another Peter in "Peter".
Both Peters in "Peter" had the same favorite coin.
When Peter was confused after getting zapped by The Machine in "The Last Sam Weiss" he went to a pawn shop and bought that same coin from a pawn shop. (Image 1)
