  • Quotes (8)

    • Lee: If we fail, we blow it up. We fall back, to these rendezvous points and then we head into the mountains and wait for rescue. Anders: Well, it's as good a place as any to die, I suppose.

    • Anders: If Kara dies out there, I swear to Gods that I will kill you myself. Lee: If she dies out there, I’ll let you.

    • Helo: Don’t ask me to do this, Sharon. Athena: Listen to me. You have always been the strong one. You believed in us when no one else would. (pause) I’m begging you to do this. Find the courage to do this for both of us, OK?

    • Roslin: That’s quite a leap of faith you’ve made there, Captain. And if it involved your family only, I'd say you were brave. But you’ve put the entire fleet in jeopardy. Are you aware of that? Helo: If you hadn’t lied, and stolen our baby in the first place, we wouldn’t be here at all.

    • Kara: Lee sent you? Dee: Yep. My husband ordered me to risk my life for yours. That’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna bring Starbuck back to Apollo.

    Notes (4)

    • As in the previous episode, some of the guns used in the algae planet scenes were loaded with balls of dust. The impact of the dust balls helped to simulate the impact of real bullets.

    • Grace Park read the "Previously on Battlestar Galactica" line at the beginning of this episode.

    • As of the beginning of this episode, there are 41,401 survivors, one fewer than at the beginning of the previous episode.

    • As in "The Eye of Jupiter (1)," the scenes on the algae planet in this episode were filmed in Kamloops, British Columbia, off East Shuswap Road. The location was chosen for distinctive geological features like the hoodoos (tall, thin spires of rock of varying thickness said to resemble a totem pole). Kamloops (in south-central British Columbia) is relatively close to Vancouver, where most scenes of the series are filmed.
