  • Quotes (10)

    • Sheridan: She went where?
      Garibaldi: Right down the shaft, right smack in the middle of them. Zack just gave me the news. You've got to give it to her, she's got guts.
      Sheridan: She is crazy! She was crazy when I knew her almost twenty years ago, she's just as crazy now.
      Garibaldi: You hired her.
      Sheridan: Don't remind me.

    • Na'toth: For I will kill you at the very first opportunity. Londo: Yes, I suspect you have to get in line for that honor.

    • Drazi: Every great fall begins with a single mistake.

    • Bester: I'll do whatever I can not to hurt them. You forget: we are more same than different. We are all telepaths and we are all on this together.

    • Na'Toth: How do we avoid being noticed? Londo: We don't. We do everything we can to be noticed. And thus become invisible. Na'Toth: I do not understand. Londo: The royal court has been trained not to see what is inappropriate.

    Notes (2)

    • The working title of this episode was "Cat and Mouse." Producer J. Michael Straczynski used it in order to avoid the title spoiling the plot of the episode.

    • Na'Toth was recast in season two because Julie Caitlin Brown didn't feel comfortable with being in prosthetics on a regular basis. But the character was then dropped shortly afterwards because the producers felt the role didn't work with the new actress. They therefore brought Brown back for this episode.

    Trivia (2)

    • When talking privately with the Drazi, Brakiri and Gaim Ambassadors, there's one shot of Sheridan and Delenn in which one of the lights of the wall beside Sheridan goes off for a few seconds.

    • Continuity: Some of the telepaths shown siding with Byron in this episode were among the group who had split from his non-violent ideology in the previous episode.
