  • Trivia

    • During the scene where he is speaking with Lt. Gaeta from an adjacent bathroom stall, Baltar whistles a portion of the anthem from the movie Top Gun, although at a faster tempo than the original version.

    • When Kara enters the hangar bay, she hands her crutches to Lee, who grabs both of them with his right hand. Immediately after that, when the view changes to a wide shot, Lee is seen with one crutch under each arm.

  • Quotes

    • Baltar: You'll forgive me, Madam President, if I don't wish to be executed based solely o­n your gut feeling.

    • Baltar: Are you running a glitch in the program or something? Because you say the same thing over and over again. Now I've accepted your God and all that. Can't we reboot the hard drive?
      Number Six: He's not my God. He IS God.
      Baltar: Yeah, your God, my God, everyone's God. He's big enough for all of us, isn't he?

    • Ms. Godfrey: Dr. Amorak gave the disk to me before he died.
      Baltar: What--as opposed to after he died?

    • Baltar: No more Mr. Nice Gaius!

  • Notes

    • Ms. Godfrey's glasses are made by Venus Eye Design, an Edmonton-based eyewear company.

    • The name of Christina Schild's character is listed as "Playa Kohn" in this episode, as it was in the preceding episode and in the following episode. However, she states her name as "Playa Palacios" in the episode "The Hand of God."

    • Biski Gugushe was credited with playing a reporter named "Eick" in the episode. In later episodes, he played a television journalist named Sekou Hamilton. It's unclear whether these are the same character. The name "Eick" is a reference to David Eick, who serves as executive producer of the series, along with Ronald D. Moore.

    • This episode first aired in the United Kingdom on November 29, 2004, on Sky One. Sky One co-financed the first season of the show.
