Coulson announces to his dream-masseuse, "Did I fall asleep?" That was the line uttered by all the dolls after they received their programming. It may be simply a 'Dollhouse' callout, or it could be a clue to what happened to Coulson.
For my money, 'Dollhouse' became a crackerjack sci-fi show after they abandoned the initial "doll of the week" premise and fully embraced the far more interesting serialized philosophy that underpinned the show's premise. It was really cooking by the end, IMO.
