John Glover, who guest-starred in this episode as the psychic, Samuel Kraft, wanted to take a break from playing the bad guy (he plays Lex Luthor's father, Lionel, on the WB's Smallville). He took this part as a chance to play someone on the right side of the law.
Larry: To hold to one assumption, to exclude any and all contradictory data, that isn't science, that's politics.
Charlie: Let's all sit down at a ouija board and solve P vs NP once and for all.
(Don and Charlie are quarreling over the validity of the psychic's powers. A loud thud is heard in the background. The arguing stops.)
Don: That's mom's picture.
Charlie: Oh, don't start to say that meant something, okay?
Don: Come on, that's spooky.
Alan: You know your mother never liked it when you guys argued.
Larry: To misquote Shakespeare here, there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in all your mathematics.
Charlie: Shakespeare also had people sprouting donkey ears and wood fairies running through his forest.
Samuel Kraft: I feel a bit like a prized show dog and you're asking me to go fetch a stick.
Charlie: Ludicrous waste of taxpayer money.
Larry: No, no, no, don't be so quick to vilify here. I've done a little research myself, and I think it had some merit. Okay? The CIA recruited individuals who demonstrated psychic abilities...
(behind him Charlie motions as if to object, without turning around)
Larry: (waves a hand at Charlie) Don't.
Victor: Are you kidding me?
Colby: No. I got a whole 'nother kidding face.
Samuel Kraft: (to Charlie) So you wouldn't be impressed if I said I felt the presence of your mother standing beside you?
Don: (to Samuel Kraft) You're a suspect in a triple homicide. We're not here to promote your book.
Charlie: What flavor of crazy Kool-Aid do they make you drink when you join the Physics Department?
