Goof: A camera and mic can be seen in the top-right of the screen as Rousseau, Kate, and Claire walk through the jungle at around 22:17.
In Latin America, the translating voice of William Mapother isn't the same from season 1. In fact, it's the one from Josh Holloway in season 1.
When Claire is looking at the baby's crib, there's a spinning toy that has 4 airplanes hanging. 4 is one of "The Numbers".
Island events in this episode take place on November 19th 2004.
Ethan's hair is much longer in this episode than in Season 1 episodes.
"CR 4-81516-23 42" appears on the vials of yellow vaccine that Ethan injects Claire with - The Numbers.
The vaccine Desmond was injecting himself with is called Rx-1. Ethan injected Claire with a substance called Rx-1 GND.
It is assumed that the girl who helped Claire in the flashback happened to be Danielle's daughter, Alex. Although it is not proven, the girl who helped Claire was around the age Danielle's daughter should be around now, and they look similar.
The braids in Eko's beard signifies each of the two men that he had killed on the island.
The planes above the cradle in the blue room are replicas of the plane in which the survivors crashed.
Claire's search for the vaccine may have been unnecessary, as Desmond left some behind in the hatch when he left. That is, assuming that what Desmond was injecting himself with is the same vaccine.
When Claire had decided to give her baby up for adoption (1.10 "Raised by Another") she had one request. She asked that they sing the song "Catch a Falling Star" to her child, since that was the song her father sang to her while growing up. In this episode, the mobile in the hatch which was going to be the baby's room played "Catch a Falling Star."
It was revealed that one of the prominent "Others" member Mr. Friendly was in disguise with a beard and other fake facial hair and clothing when confronting the other islanders in previous episodes. When Kate was inspecting the hospital room she found glue and a beard and facial hair that belonged to Mr. Friendly that he left behind.
If Aaron was infected, getting the vaccine still wouldn't have done any good. Vaccines introduce a small amount of the disease into a person's body so they have time to adjust and become immune to it. On someone who is already sick, vaccines are useless.
Claire: What if I want to see the baby?
Ethan: Hey, nobody's going to take him from you unless that's what you want. You have a choice. We're good people, Claire. We're a good family. But if you're going to trust us with your child I want you to be sure. Okay?
Ethan: Claire, can I tell you a secret?
Ethan: I'm going to miss you. I wish -- I wish you didn't have to go.
Claire: Maybe I don't have to go?
Ethan: We've been through this Claire. There's not enough vaccine for you and the baby.
Claire: Well, I'm not, I'm not sick.
Ethan: Thank God. And once you've delivered you can go back to your friends and hopefully you'll stay that way.
Henry: So, which one are you?
Locke: I'm sorry?
Henry: Are you the genius, or are you the guy who always feels like he's living in the shadow of a genius?
Locke: I was never very much into literary analysis.
Henry: I just don't understand why you let the doctor call the shots.
Locke: No one calls the shots. Jack and I make decisions together.
Henry: Right, okay. My mistake.
Eko: You are a prisoner because they are being careful. They are being careful because they believe you are lying.
Henry: Why would I lie? They think I'm one of these others - other what?
Jack: Be careful what you say to him. He's smart and curious. Just give us a shout when you're done.
Locke: If the alarm goes off, don't tell him what it's for.
Eko: What is it for?
Claire: Your baby - was it a girl?
Claire: What was her name?
Danielle: Alex. Alexandra.
Claire: I remember a girl - a girl with blue eyes. She helped me. She saved me, just like you did. She wasn't like the others. She was good.
Jack: Did Locke tell you?
Eko: Locke did not tell me anything. Who is he? I wish to speak to him.
Jack: Speak to him about what?
Eko: I wish to speak to him alone. Can you arrange this?
Jack: Why should I do that?
Eko: Because you wish to keep this a secret.
(about Rousseau's research team)
Claire: Kate, how did they die?
Kate: She killed them.
Claire: What? Why, why would...
Danielle (appearing): Because they were infected. You believe me now, don't you?
Mr. Friendly: (about Claire) What the hell happened? You were supposed to make the list and then bring her in. Was I unclear?
Ethan: It's not my fault. They knew I wasn't on the plane. They had a manifest.
Mr. Friendly: What am I supposed to tell him? You know what he's going to do when he finds out. Damn it, Ethan.
Claire: I have amnesia. There's two weeks missing from my life.
Libby: Claire, I don't think you have amnesia. You know, sometimes when something terrible happens to us there's a switch in your head that flicks on to protect us from having to deal with it. Maybe your memories aren't gone. Maybe you're just blocking them.
Claire: Then I need you to unblock them because my baby's sick and they did something to him.
Eko: Please stop talking Henry ... the first night I spent on this island I was dragged into the jungle by two men. They never spoke a word to me, nor I to them. I killed these men, smashed in their head with a stone, felt their blood on my arms. I need you to know, how sorry I am for this. I need you to know that I am back on the righteous path now, and that I regret my actions. I ask you for your forgiveness.
Henry Gale: Why are you telling me this?
Mr. Eko: Because I needed to tell someone. (Takes his knife and cuts portion of his beard off his chin.)
Claire: (to Aaron) Look, mommy made this for you, when you were still inside her tummy, yeah. (Gives Aaron the knitted sock and begins to cry) Ya know, I wanted them to take you, but now I know, now I know that we're supposed to be together, you and me. We're supposed to take care of each other. Okay? You're mine and I love you, I love you so much. (kisses Aaron's forehead)
Kate: I'm going into the jungle to track down Rousseau.
Sawyer: The French chick? What for?
Kate: Claire thinks she knows where there might be some medicine. The baby's sick.
Sawyer: Hell, I got medicine.
Kate: She thinks he's really sick, as in quarantine sick.
Sawyer: What do you think?
Kare: I think she's a little too worried, but she's going after Rousseau with or without me.
Sawyer: No boys allowed, huh? (Kate shakes her head) All right, what do you want, nine millimeter or rifle?
Sawyer: (to Kate) Check it out, I found a new pair of glasses, damn near my prescription. You like em?
Locke: I thought you might like something to read.
Henry Gale: Dostoyevsky? You don't have any Stephen King?
Locke: The library's a little out-dated.
Sun: A mother should not leave her child.
Claire: I'm sorry, are you a mother?
Sun: No, I'm not.
Kate: I need a gun. And you don't get to ask why.
Sawyer: Well, Thelma, seeing as I got all the guns, I do get to ask why.
Kate: No, you don't.
Sawyer: Yes, I do. Watch... why?
Claire: So you're a shrink, right?
Libby: I'm a clinical psychologist but 'shrink' works, too.
Claire: Can you help people to remember things?
Libby: I guess it depends on what you need to remember.
Jack: Do you have to go to the bathroom?
Henry Gale: No.
Jack: Well, just let us know when you do.
Henry Gale: Yeah, I'll look forward to that.
Gale: Is it true what you said about Hemingway?
Locke: You have good ears.
Gale: You have thin doors.
(Locke hands him his dinner)
Henry: No cheeseburgers, huh?
Mr Eko: (to Gale) You are a prisoner because they are being careful.
Danielle: (to Claire) I hope your baby is not infected. But, if he is, I hope you know what must be done.
Locke: What are we doing, Jack?
Jack: What are we doing?
Locke: We can't hide him down here forever. Changing shifts around is gonna get people asking questions. I wanna know what the long term plan is.
Jack: Well, John, let me ask you this: We don't have a long-term plan for the button, but we keep pushing it, don't we?
Claire: Where are you going?
Danielle: You're not the only one that didn't find what they were looking for.
"Catch a Falling Star" by Perry Como, played when the mobile is turned on.

This is the first episode not to have the "flashback noise" before and after the flashbacks.
Although they are credited Dominic Monaghan (Charlie), Naveen Andrews (Sayid), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), Harold Perrineau Jr. (Michael) and Michelle Rodriguez (Ana-Lucia) do not appear in this episode.
A Claire-centric episode.
Kate: I need a gun. And you don't get to ask why.
Sawyer: Well, Thelma. Seeing as I got all the guns, I do get to ask why.
Probably a reference to the Ridley Scott movie Thelma & Louise (1991), where Thelma, a housewife, and Louise, a waitress, break out of their normal life and soon are pursued by the authorities.
Locke gives Henry Gale a book to read - The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
The Brothers Karamazov is about the murder of a father by his sons who all share varying degrees of involvement. On another level, it is also about the moral struggles between faith, doubt, reason and free will.
When Kate approaches Sawyer, requesting a gun, he is reading Lancelot by Walker Percy.
Percy's most despairing novel, this is the story of mad Lancelot Lamar, who is so consumed by jealousy that he kills his unfaithful wife by blowing up their house - an event in which he himself is badly burned. In the hospital, he narrates this terrible story to his sympathetic friend Percival.
In relation to the character, this may be an allusion to Kate's background as revealed in "What Kate Did." Also, author William Percy's father committed suicide, just like Sawyer's dad killed himself after murdering his wife.
