This is at least the second episode to indicate that President Roslin enjoys mystery and detective novels. At her bedside, Adama reads the beginning of Chapter 1 from the hardboiled detective story Love and Bullets by fictional author Nick Talo. ("It started like it always did. With a body.")
In the Season 3 episode, "A Day in the Life," Roslin gave Adama a book titled Blood Runs at Midnight. She said that it was a good mystery story despite the title.
