    • Roslin: (discussing Baltar with Adama) We tried the stick. It's time to try the carrot. The thing he's most deeply afraid of is that even if he talks, we'll kill him. Tigh: Smart man.

    • Doc Cottle: Admiral! We're losing him! That's enough. I'm putting an end to this freak show right now! (Roslin nods in agreement)

    • Baltar: She... Caprica Six... she chose me. Chose me over all men. Chosen to be seduced, taken by the hand, guided between the light and the dark. But is she an angel, or is she a demon? Is she imaginary or is she real? Is she my own voice, or the voice of --

    • Roslin: Doctor, did you conspire with [Caprica Six] to subvert our defense system? Baltar: Conspiracy requires intent. I never intended -- but then she said deep down, I'd always suspected. But I didn't know. How could I know? Did I conspire? Did I? No! No! I don't know. No. It wasn't my fault. It wasn't my fault! It -- I am not responsible!

    • Baltar: (grabs photo off the wall) This man, his name is Adrian Bauer. He was my lab assistant for three years on Caprica. Roslin: (shouting) So what? Baltar: He was Gemenese. I got him a visa. I introduced him to his wife. I am godfather to their first child. I wouldn’t do anything to harm this man or his family, or anybody’s family. I am not a murderer! I am innocent! Why won’t you believe me?

    • James Callis read the "Previously on Battlestar Galactica" line at the beginning of this episode.

    • In the beginning of this episode, there are 41,403 survivors, 2 more than in the previous episode. One person died in "Rapture" but Baltar and Hera returned to the Colonial fleet. The survivor count apparently includes Caprica Six, who accompanied Athena back to Galactica.

    Allusions (2)

    • In another connection with the 80s TV series Cheers, some of the scenes took place at a new bar on Galactica -- Joe's Bar. Perhaps it's "where everyone knows your name."

    • The episode title appears to refer to the theme song from the hit TV series Cheers (1982-1993):
      Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got
      Takin' a break from all your worries sure would help a lot
      Wouldn't you like to get away?
      Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name
      And they're always glad you came You want to be where you can see
      Troubles are all the same
      You want to be where everybody knows your name
      You want to go where people know
      People are all the same You want to go where everybody knows your name
