    • (referring to his Backstep tattoo) Frank: I've been in every foreign capital in the world, drunk, and I've never gotten one of those things.

    • Frank: Doc – there are certain outer molecules of my body that I wouldn't exactly want to part with just yet. Mentnor: Your testes. They'll be intact.

    • Frank: All this genius and you guys can't keep the air conditioning running.

    • MIB #1: If you meet our criteria, you'll leave this island - today. Frank: But I thought I was crazy. MIB #2: Are you? Frank: Not crazy enough to get involved in an operation you want a crazy man for.

    • MIB #1: (Frank) actually scored higher than he did under normal conditions. Talmadge: Talk to me. MIB #1: He's a jerk. Sir. A real problem personality.

    Notes (3)

    • There are no opening credits - the "regulars" are listed the same way as everyone else, albeit first before the "Guest Stars."

    • Originally aired as a two-hour pilot movie - split into two parts for subsequent reairings. Credits are inserted into the end of the part 1, listing all actors and their characters in both parts.

    • Alan Scarfe and Sam Whipple are listed as guest stars for this, the pilot episode.

    Trivia (3)

    • In the pilot episode when the Russian commandos are boarding the Russian freighter supposedly on the open sea, you can see dock lights reflected in the not-moving water.

    • In the opening shot we see the Sphere drifting through space with a dead chrononaut. How'd they ever recover the Sphere?

    • In later episodes it'll be constantly referenced that Donovan is Frank's potential back-up as chrononaut, etc. But in this episode there's no indication that he was ever considered for or tested for the position. This seems odd given how desperate they are here.
