    • Gunn: (about Connor) A couple of weeks ago he was wearing diapers now he's a teenager?
      Cordelia: Tell me we don't live in a soap opera.

    • Cordy: Isn't your neck stiff? You've been standing exactly like that all day.
      Groo: Pylean warriors are trained for such endurance. I once happened upon a herd of Burrbeasts. And as you know, engorged Burrbeast will couple with anything that moves. I was forced to stand, perfectly still, for 11 days and nights.
      Cordy: So you were never...?
      Groo: No. That honor was yours, princess.

    • Angel: Okay. Look, I'm going underground. Somebody hit the surface streets. Gunn: We got it, man. Groo: We will not fail... man.

    • Sunny: So, that was really cool today. So, where did you learn to fight all bad-ass like that? Connor: In Quor-toth. Sunny: Quor-toth? That's in Mexico, right?

    • Holtz: Hello Son. Connor: Hi Dad.

    Notes (2)

    • Mike Massa was nominated for the 2002 American Choreography Award for "Outstanding Achievement in Fight Choreography" for this episode.

    • Keith Szarabajka did not appear in the opening guest cast credits, and was credited at the end of the episode in order to surprise viewers.

    Trivia (14)

    • Connor speaks with an American accent. This seems odd since his only parental figure and the only person Connor ever talked to was British so he couldn't have picked up his accent from anyone.

    • When Angel runs after Connor into the daylight, his reflection can be seen in the glass door.

    • Vincent Kartheisers' introduction as Connor continues the trend of welcoming characters late in the season who join the main cast in the following season. Following on from J.August Richards as Gunn in "War Zone" (1x20) and Amy Acker as Fred in "Belonging" (2x19).

    • In the scene at the hotel with Sunny, Connor's shirt changes from shot to shot.

    • Gunn said that the pentagram in the hotel lobby was a "dark attempt to open a fissure". However, it was actually a spell to make Sahjhan corporeal. Although, Angel wanted to make Sahjhan corporeal to "open a fissure" which in a roundabout way means Gunn was correct.

    • Lilah: The one person in all of human history deemed the greatest sinner? Who is it? Wesley: Judas Iscariot. In the Christian Bible, Judas Iscariot was one of the Apostles of Jesus. He is best-known for betraying Jesus to the Jewish High Priest Caiaphas for "thirty pieces of silver", ultimately leading to Jesus' crucifixion at the hands of the Romans.
