  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (13)

    • Daniel: Well, I try to be honest but, occasionally a little white one slips out every now and again... (Vala slaps Daniel) Daniel: Ow! Vala: Shall I kiss it better?

    • Vala: Well, in this case, it’s the size that matters... I think that's pretty much in every case.

    • Daniel: (to Vala, under the impression she's a Kull warrior) Hey, how's it going? Guess it's just you and me, huh...? It's a little strange, isn't it? See, that weapon I shot you with should've killed you... What's even stranger is you guys don't usually take prisoners, either. I mean, it's kind of kill first, that's generally about it, just the killing. (long pause) I'm just going to talk to myself here for a while, because you're not going to talk to me...

    • Daniel: (to Vala) You're a fruitcake!

    • Daniel: Well... you kept the wrong guy because I don't know anything about this ship. Vala: (in manlike armor) But you are very attractive. Daniel: (cough) ...QWhat?? Hey big guy, I'm flattered, really I am, it's just that, uh, you're not my type. Uh, more than a little disturbed that I might be yours.

    Notes (7)

    • This episode does not feature a Stargate.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Vala Mal Doran (Claudia Black) on the series.

    • This is the first appearance of a non-human alien race since Season 7's "Enemy Mine".

    • This episode presumably is set at the same time as "Gemini" (this would explain Teal'c and Carter's absence). While Daniel was asking to go on the Prometheus to Atlantis, Teal'c and Carter were dealing with the Replicarter on the alpha site.

    • Gary Jones character's name is confirmed to be Walter Harriman, changed from Walter Davis as established in previous episodes.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Daniel and Vala are at the table and Vala is eating, they are supposed to be in hyperspace, yet the stars behind Vala aren't moving at all.

    • Vala says her suit absorbs zat blasts, yet Daniel is able to knock her out with a zat blast to the side.

    • Trivia: This episode reveals that, since becoming head of the Department of the Homeworld Security, George Hammond has been promoted to the rank of lieutenant general.

    Allusions (4)

    • Vala: In armor Just as in the her first appearance in Farscape, in her first appearance here, Claudia Black wears glossy black armor and attacks the first Earthman she meets, and it isn't initially clear what she looks like until she takes off her helmet.

    • Daniel: The name is Olo... Hans Olo.
      This is a joke using the name of Harrison Ford's Star Wars character "Han Solo," and delivered the same way that James Bond introduces himself: "The name is Bond, James Bond."

    • Daniel: Crushing your head! When Daniel is pinching Vala's head on the monitor this is a throwback to Kids in the Hall where it was a regular gag.

    • Episode Title: The title comes from a well-known and complex "lyrical drama" by Percy Shelley.
