    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • This episode marks the second time during Season 7 when a Vulcan, Lt. Chulok loses control of his emotions. The first time is during "Take Me Out to the Holosuite", when Captain Solok is pursuing what's called an "adolescent rivalry" against Sisko.

      • The melon O'Brien uses for target practice is just a painted watermelon.

      • During the conversation between Bashir and O'Brien in the replimat, Bashir's cup switches position to the opposite side of the table and back again with each change in camera angle.

      • As Ezri guides Ilario out of Quarks bar she says, "this is not the first drunken ensign I have taken home." Ilario is a Lieutenant. Ezri was probably drunk, too.

      • Joran tells Ezri that Curzon and Jadzia didn't know what to do with him, meaning how to handle the memories of his murderous psychotic ways. Actually, the Symbiosis Commission deliberately suppressed the Joran memories from the Dax symbiont, so Curzon never even knew about Joran, and Jadzia didn't until the memories emerged in "Equilibrium".

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Ilario: You know something Lieutenant? You're very beautiful.
        Ezri: And you're very drunk.
        Ilario: Ah, true enough. But in the morning, I'll be sober and you'll still be beautiful.

      • Joran: All Vulcans distrust emotions, but they don't go around killing people for smiling.

      • Joran: Then we'll start with his choice of weapons.
        Ezri: We already know about the modifications he made to the TR-116.
        Joran: But you haven't held it in your hands, have you? You haven't looked through the tracking display. Picked a target. Felt the power as you lock its sensors on your unsuspecting prey. If you want to catch a killer, Ezri... you have to learn to think like one.

      • Bashir: There was this notion that a man could have a special relationship with a weapon. Some frontiersmen even went so far as to give their rifles names, female ones in fact, thus changing the relationship of owner and object to something resembling man and woman.
        O'Brien: Maybe I''ll start calling my tricorder Sally...

    • NOTES (5)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The Silence Of The Lambs
        Ezri's relying on Joran to track down the killer and her knowledge of forensic psychology is very similar to FBI Agent Clarice Starling and her relationship with Dr. Hannibal Lecter in this 1991 film.

      • Churchill

        Ilario: You are beautiful.
        Ezri: And you are drunk.
        Ilario: But in morning I will be sober, while you will stilll be beautiful.

        This appears to be taken from a famous (but possibly apocryphal) exchange between Winston Churchil and Bessie Braddock (who disliked each other intensely).

        Churchill: You are ugly.
        Braddock: And you are drunk.
        Churchill: But in the morning I will be sober, while you will still be ugly.
