This is the same bomb on the Meet the Medic title card. The Heavy's Minigun can be spotted in the background of a few operating room shots, resting on its own stretcher.
The Medic's Overdose is next to the bucket containing the extracted bomb. When his heart is destroyed, the line on the monitor goes flat. The next time it is seen, after the Medic retrieves a new heart, it resumes its old display as if the machine detected the heart's presence. One of the Medic's doves is named after Archimedesa Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer.
A mysterious woman presumably resembling Miss Pauling can be seen through the window at 0: The labels on the hearts at 1: The smallest heart appears to have no label on it. Despite the Medic believing otherwise, human ribs are actually capable of growing back when properly shortened. In the opening, when the Demoman is fleeing from the BLU Soldiers in a wheelchair, he has a bandage over the top part of his head and an eyepatch worn on top of the bandage.
Later, when the Demoman is healed by the Medic, he rips off the bandage with the eyepatch on it to reveal another eyepatch underneath the bandage.
Similarly, when he is fleeing from the Soldiers in the first battlefield scene, his Stickybomb Launcher rests on his lap and is his only visible weapon.
In the second battlefield scene, the Grenade Launcher replaced the Stickybomb Launcher, but after an explosion sends him flying out of his wheelchair, the weapon that lands in front of him is, mysteriously, the Stickybomb Launcher instead of the Grenade Launcher he was just holding.
In the up-close scene of the Demoman fleeing the Soldiers, the Engineer and Sniper are missing. The Quick-Fix uses sounds from the Medi Gun. After the Heavy kills the Soldiers onscreen and continues to fire at unseen enemies, the Medic poses as in the Meet the Medic taunt.
Next to him is a Ciggy Stop vending machine, identical to the one in the Intelligence room in Meet the Spy.

It was scrapped because the animators thought that it didn't really reflect what people truly thought of when they hear "the Medic". Robin Atkin Downes, the Medic's voice actor, uploaded a short snippet of himself recording the lines for this "Meet the" short, as well as a redubbed version of the outtakes with the Medic's voice. According to Walker, the item "came almost directly out of the movie We felt the movie had justified and created a way for us to have a 'Sandvich' in the game and have that action [of eating it] make any kind of sense in our game world".
Another item to be introduced after its appearance in the series was Jarate which was added after its debut in Meet the Sniper. The series also assisted in the development of game technology. Valve used Meet the Heavy to test the facial animation system the studio was developing for Team Fortress 2. According to Walker, the new system "allowed our characters to have a much greater range of expressions than we were able to do in Half-Life We wanted a test case for that".
The resulting technology produced in the creation of the Meet the Team series now appears in the game when played on the highest graphical settings. Walker recalled that team's pleasure about "the expression on the Heavy at the end when he's shooting and screaming" was not fake, and was not just "this thing that the coolest bit in [the movie] was something that would happen in the game.
The short was also shown to a user from the Steam Users' Forum upon his visit to Valve 's head offices in Bellevue, Washington.
