  • Trivia

    • As Dr. Smith walks away from the fireplace, the reflection of the top of the camera and the operator's hand is visible in the lower left corner of the mirror.

  • Quotes

    • McGrath: The Security Committee has asked all known psychics to report to Camp Arnold for internment. They will be tranquilized with drugs known to suppress psionic powers until this crisis is resolved.
      Bridger: You can't do this! It's against civil rights. It's like interring the Japanese in World War II.

    • Smith: You know how they discovered I had powers? I was eight years old, and I was scoring perfectly on my spelling tests. But then they started testing me with nonsense words and I got all those right too because I was reading the answers right out of their minds. And once they realized what was happening, I could also read their fear, and their revulsion.

    • Bridger: Wendy, have you taken a look at our crew lately? Lucas, a technological genius. Darwin, a dolphin who'd rather live with humans. Piccolo has gills. Every one of us is a stranger, alone.

    • Avatar (to Wendy): I am the avatar of your dreams, and I've come for you. In all the world you're my only opponent for power, and yet your eyes are filled with kindness. I followed your energies across the city, and I'll follow them across the planet if I must. Come to me. Join with me.

    • Smith: He's dreaming. I don't think he even knows what he's doing is real. He has critical pathway damage. In a normal patient this would have killed them, but because he has psychic powers, he found another way to stay alive.

    • Smith: I'm sorry, I'm too weak. I can't do it for you.
      Charlie: I can't do it.
      Smith: You're the only one who can. This is your pathway, Charlie. You have to build it yourself.

  • Notes

    • Edward Kerr (Lt. James Brody) got so angry after reading the script for this episode that he walked off the set, which is why he is not in this episode. It is also what brought him to ask to be let out of his contract for the next season.
