All officers must pass a qualification test with firing a pistol. Maggie couldn't qualify since she doesn't even know how to hold the pistol properly.
Nitpick: Maggie's Marine service alpha uniform bears a sharpshooter rifle badge, but not a pistol marksmanship badge. This is odd, considering that's the weapon she's carrying and that she is an officer in the Marine Corps where pistol training is required.
Maggie: (about Jariabeck) Did you hear him say anything before he died?
Arturo: Mostly gibberish.
Maggie: (yells) Did you hear him say anything?
Quinn: Sorry, he was bleeding too loud.
Maggie: Jariabeck's work is the reason we're so far ahead of the Russians.
Arturo: So you thank him by killing him. I would've thought a more appropriate reward might've been a Presidential Commendation and a pay raise!
Doctor: What the hell are you doing?!
Quinn: It's called Sliding.
Maggie: Why does every landing have to be so hard?
Quinn: I've been asking myself that for three years.
The establishing shot of a building referenced as Caltech by the Sliders is actally the Valley Life Sciences building at UC Berkeley.
