    • Glenn Howard: [trying to dissuade Kaliman from leaving]: If you leave now, you'll be throwing away what you've taken two-thirds of your life to accomplish.
      Ben Kaliman: At least I'll be alive to regret it.

    • Colonel Mara: [of Magda Blaine]: I only knew she was an actress. I didn't know she was a bad actress.

    • Glenn Howard: [sarcastically, to a tearful Magda]: I've never forgotten your performance in "Bleeding Heart".

    Trivia (2)

    • The Magda Blaine character actually refers to "the Herman Allison affair", meaning the storyline in the Season One episode, "The Protector", in which we first met her. She adds, "He's still in prison, you know."

    • Anne Baxter re-appears as the same character she played in the Season One episode, "The Protector". She also appeared as different characters in two other episodes.
