Voice of Dominar Rygel XVI
Goof: When John, Scorpius, and Sikozu close the helmets of their space suits, it's obvious that the face shield does not seal their faces from space underneath their chins. Perhaps Sikozu and Scorpius don't need them sealed, but John would experience explosive decompression and die within a few minutes upon being exposed to space without that protective seal.
Nitpick: The Scarrans decide to go to Earth, supposedly to replace the Crystherium flowers that Crichton destroyed. But there is absolutely no reason to believe that Earth's bird of paradise flowers have the same properties as the Crystherium- humans look exactly like Sebaceans, but are very different in their physiology. Either they are grasping at straws, looking for leverage to gain John's wormhole knowledge, or it's just revenge.
Goof: In a wider shot of the end scene the engagement ring is lying down on top of the crystals, but in the very last frame (with "to be continued") it's standing up.
Sikozu's comment to Crichton of "Weak species" echoes her earlier statement in "Unrealized Reality".
Scorpius asked Braca to have Noranti brought aboard, but his reasoning is unknown.
Commandant Grayza is in confinement on the Command Carrier, and is under sedation at the last check.
Stark references his time as a pilot, talking of his taking control of Talyn in season three's "Meltdown".
Chiana is blinded after her slowing down Pilot's controls, but this time it's taking so long to go away that she believes she may be permanently blind.
Aeryn tells Crichton that the baby is his, and then he proposes. She agrees, so they're engaged, and he gives her his mother's ring that his sister gave him on Earth (in "Terra Firma").
Sikozu: (trying to persuade him to accept Scorpius' help against the Scarrans) Crichton, he is not wrong. You must trust him!
Crichton: Goldilocks, it's a bad choice. When you figure that out, call our 1-800 number for counseling.
Stark: (panicking) No no! Scarrans! Scarrans torture! Scarrans kill! TORTURE, KILL! TORTURE, KILL!
Stark (calmly) I think I'm okay now.
Pilot: Ahh... Dominar.
Rygel: (referring to Crichton's plan to use Moya to collapse the wormhole) You should do it.
Pilot: Would you?
Rygel: No. But I'm not you.
Crichton: (into a tape recorder) My name is John Crichton...an astronaut. Four years ago, I got...shot through a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy. I ending up on this ship...this living ship, populated by escaping prisoners...who became my friends. I made enemies...
Harvey: (wearing bunny suit) Curious holiday, Easter. A religious leader dies, comes back from the dead, and you end up celebrating like this.
Chiana: Why are you doin' this? Why would you sell your own people out?
Crichton: Because I am proud to bring Peacekeeper protection to my backward ass little planet.
(Chiana punches him in the stomach)
Chiana: Then don't do it. Pop the frelling bubble. Make the wormhole collapse.
Crichton: Pip, I can't do it.
Chiana: Yes, you can.
Crichton: I'm not smart enough...
Chiana: Yes, you are.
Crichton: I'm not fast enough...I am not alien enough, and you know what? There are people in the Universe who don't like me. I'm only human.
Crichton: We've got a little problem.
Jack: Worse than a $300 clipboard that you can put paper in when it's upside down?
Crichton: Yes. The Scarrans have located Earth. And, they're on their way.
Jack: What can we do?
Crichton: Nothing. I gotta do it.
Jack: What the hell does that mean? Why do you have to do it? You've already done enough, son.
Crichton: I'm gonna seal up the wormhole. That'll isolate Earth, but it should protect it.
Jack: Then how do we get into deep space?
Crichton: The old-fashioned way. You build the rocket. I've left you...technology and navigation information...here at your flagpole.
(sets a tape recorder by the flagpole)
Jack: How long do we have?
Crichton: Not long.
Jack: Then take me with you. Take us all...we're ready. Five hundred of the world's best. We can help.
Crichton: There's no time.
Jack: What do you mean, there's no time? For Moya to get from the Moon to the Earth, what's it take? A blink of an eye? Two seconds? Come on, son.
Crichton: We're down to minutes...Dad. How do you want to spend 'em?
Jack: Son...listen...the...the Secretary General of the UN is...he speaks for the planet on all space matters now. We're starting to come together, just like you wanted.
Crichton: That's good. Keep that up.
Jack: I was looking forward to coming with you, boy.
Crichton: Well...sometimes things don't happen quite the way you imagine 'em. Tell Susan and Liv that...I love 'em . And I'll contact ya if I can. Tell everyone.
Jack: I will, son. You tell my grand-kids about me.
Crichton: Come on, that's a no-brainer. They've got to know who my hero is.
Jack: You're going to find, when you have your own, that you want them to pass you. Be better, climb higher. I guess if that's the measure, I'm...the greatest dad on Earth.
Crichton: I love you, Dad.
Jack: You're the heart and soul of my life, son. I love you...Good-bye.
Aeryn: So I'm having a baby.
Crichton: Are you okay? And the baby?
Aeryn: It's yours. I just wanted to tell you. Hope it doesn't change anything.
Crichton: Um, well, it changes everything. (stands up and starts yelling) We are having a baby! Yeah! Frell you! We are gonna have a BABY!
Crichton: That scares the hell out of me... From the first moment I laid eyes on you, I could never see the end
Aeryn: What scares me is I always could.
(Crichton begins to propose to Aeryn)
D'Argo: Crichton's gone down onto his knees.
Rygel: I think he's hurt himself.
Crichton: What did you imagine for your life?
Aeryn: Service, promotion, retirement, death. You?
Crichton: This is exactly what I imagined... and a couple of kids.
Crichton: Will you marry me?
D'Argo: I think you should concentrate on your training with Katoya.
Crichton: Katoya's a frelling fruit loop.
D'Argo: Focus on your inner strength.
Crichton: It's here. I just can't find the Rosetta Stone.
Crichton: Fruit loop.
Chiana: Sex does it.
D'Argo: For you.
Chiana: For everyone. (looks to Crichton) Sex.
Crichton: With you, or with him?
Rygel: Hmm... Proposed what?
Rygel: Marriage? Idiot!
This episode was originally titled "No Turning Back", but they changed it after it was announced that the show was being cancelled.
Ben Browder voiced the alien pilot that strafes Crichton and Aeryn in the final scene. The alien who speaks over the radio to that pilot is voiced by the episode's assistant director Michael Feranda.
The cast and crew did not find out about the show's cancellation until the last day of shooting.
At the show's wrap-up, Rockne S. O'Bannon stated that the show was 80% done. This would suggest that they planned to end the show after its ill-fated 5th season.
Jack's half of the phonecall conversation between him and Crichton was filmed way earlier in the season, at the same time as "Kansas" and "Terra Firma". Ben Browder then filmed his half later on, with someone shouting Jacks lines at him so he could hear them through his helmet.
Ben Browder (John Crichton) is the only actor to appear in every episode of the series.
For this episode, the "previously on" segment is made up of four frames from each of the 87 episodes that have preceded this, and the narration ends with "And finally, on Farscape". This episode was shot before Sci-Fi's decision to cancel the show. The "previously on Farscape" featuring clips from all of 87 of the episodes was added later.
There was no music on the end credits.
Crichton: Dear God... don't let me screw this up.
This is a variation of what Astronaut Alan Shepard said while waiting for the launch of Freedom 7. This phrase became known among aviators as "Shepard's Prayer."
Crichton: I'm not smart enough...I'm not fast enough...I am not alien enough, and you know what? There are people in the Universe who don't like me.
This is a reference to the Saturday Night Live skits featuring Al Franken as Stuart Smalley, where at the end of the fake talk show he looks in a mirror and says "I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!"
Crichton writes "Dear John" on the fission bomb he straps to Scorpius. The two (fission) bombs in the movie Doctor Strangelove have "Dear John" and "Hi There!" written on them. In the previous episode, "We're So Screwed, Part 3: La Bomba", Crichton writes "Hi There!" on another fission bomb.
