    • Stefan: (to Kelly and Scotty) I am...I am like soldier. I do not choose what is my duty. Is like war, and your country is the enemy. When we win, will be peace, will be plenty. I have been told that Americans live on lies. I will take back knowledge with me that it is true.

    • Kelly: (looking back at the guard chasing their car with a motorcycle) Oh, man...
      Scotty: Listen, don't cry in front of the kid!

    Notes (1)

    • Although he had never seen the show and had very little knowledge about the characters, Ernest Frankel was able to write the complete teleplay of this episode within a five day deadline without a rewrite.

    Allusions (1)

    • Kelly: (after the shoot-out in the apartment) Notice there's no bullet holes behind me at anytime...you're probably wondering why? Because of the big, red "S" under my shirt!
      Kelly is alluding to Superman's costume, which featured a stylized red "S" on the chest. Superman, the superhero character created in 1932 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, was invulnerable and bullets would simply bounce off of his chest.
