  • Trivia

    • Garibaldi places the bullets in a steam pipe and uses them to shoot the Zarg. Even assuming the steam could generate enough heat to ignite the gunpowder (unlikely), the bullets would all explode at once, blasting the pipe to pieces.

  • Quotes

    • Delenn: We knew the Warrior Caste was unhappy with our activities.
      Lennier: Unhappy? Delenn, he's planning to kill you!
      Delenn: That is one interpretation.
      Lennier: He said he would use any and all means necessary. I respectfully suggest that he intends to go far beyond harsh language.

    • Neroon: Power beckons, and who among us is strong enough to ignore its siren song?

    • Rathenn: (referring to Sinclair) To be with him was to have the strangest feeling. As though he were only visiting this life, and did not want to be overly burdened by it.

    • Delenn: I have no desire to rule our people.
      Neroon: I wish I could believe you, Delenn, but I don't. A religious zealot propelled by prophecy into a position of military and political power? Always a bad idea... Out of respect I give you this opportunity to walk away from the path you have taken, refuse the position of Ranger One and turn control of the Rangers over to the Warrior Caste where it belongs.
      Delenn: Or...?
      Neroon: I am sworn to stop you, Delenn. By any and all means necessary.

    • Supervisor: It's like he disappeared into thin air.
      Garibaldi: Thin air. Why is it always thin air? Never fat air, chubby air, mostly fit could stand to lose a few pounds air?

    • Marcus: I'm in awe, Lennier. The way you take a straightforward logical proposition and turn it inside out so that in the end it says what you want it to say, instead of what it actually means. Did this come naturally, or did you attend some special martial arts class for the philosophically inclined?

    • Neroon: Den'Sha, you said. To the death. And death I was. The death was mine. To see a human invoke the name of Valen, and be willing to die for one of my kind while I was intent upon killing one of my own, the rightness of my cause disappeared. Strange, that a human in his last moment should be more of a Minbari than I. Perhaps this is true, what Delenn said. That we are not of the same blood, but we are of the same heart.
      Marcus: The next time... the next time you want a revelation... could you possibly find a way... that isn't... quite so... uncomfortable?

    • Neroon: I've just broken two of your ribs. (hits Marcus again) Sorry, make that three.

    • Neroon: Once Den'Sha is invoked I cannot surrender but you, you are not Minbari. Step aside, and I will pretend that you ran away, changed your mind. No one will know.
      Marcus: I am a Ranger! We walk in the dark places no others will enter. We stand on the bridge, and no one may pass! We live for the One! We die for the One!

    • Neroon: There is now blood between us, and there is blood between the Warrior Caste, and the Humans. I do not think they would die for me. But they would die for you ... Entil'Zha.

  • Notes

    • After production, Straczynski apologized for certain aspects of the episode, noting that the "Zarg" monster was particularly ineffective.

  • Allusions

    • Dr. Franklin indicates that his name on the underground telepath railroad is "Harriet." This is a reference to Harriet Tubman, who ran the underground railroad to help slaves escape from the antebellum south.
