    • Dylan: (referring to Tyr) You still care for him?
      Beka: About as much as you can care for a self-centered, self-important Nietzschean.

    • Rommie: However, Tyr has also been devious an equal number of times.
      Harper: And probably more, if you count the times he could have been so devious we never even found out about it!

    • Tyr: There's a first time for everything, Dylan.
      Dylan: And there's a last time too, Tyr.

    • Harper: Wow, except from waking up next to a certain satisfied android, now I've seen everything!

    • Dylan: What's passed is past.

    • Doctor Who:

      Beka's reference that it looked smaller from the outside could be a possible reference to the time travel machine the TARDIS from Doctor Who, in which the inside is bigger than the outside. The TARDIS looks like an old fashioned phone booth, which is also similar in appearance to the building Dylan and his crew visit.
