  • Trivia

    • When Picard called for a Transporter Code 14 to destroy the Tox Uthat, he slaps on his communicator for the Enterprise to lock onto. Later, when he is in his suite with Vash, he is wearing another communicator. How many do Starfleet officers carry when on vacation?

    • Early in the episode, Picard and Riker get in a turbolift and you can see the interior doors are orange. Then they cut to a shot of them inside the turbolift and the doors are now gray.

    • When Picard assembles a shovel and gives it to Vash, he extends it blade forward, but the camera cuts to her taking it and the handle is extended toward her.

  • Quotes

    • (Picard and Riker in the turbo lift)
      Riker: So, have you decided where you're going yet?
      Picard: Yes, I have Number One. Bridge!
      Riker: No, I meant on your shore leave.
      Picard: Not you too.

    • Joval: I don't understand. You say you wish to be alone yet you carry the Horga'hn.
      Picard: I just purchased that. Why? Are you implying it holds some special meaning?
      Joval: The Horga'hn is the Risian symbol of sexuality. To own one is to call forth it powers. To display it is to announce you are seeking Jamaharohn.
      Picard: Riker!
      Joval: Do you seek Jamaharohn?
      Picard: I don't even know what it means. Nor do I want to. The Horga'hn is for a friend.
      Joval: I see. Someone close to you.
      Picard:That's right.
      Joval: Someone you love.
      Picard: I wouldn't go that far.
      Joval: Your attitude is most puzzling. I will leave you now to your book.
      Picard: That's all I ask.

    • Picard: Is everyone on the ship aware of this scheme to get me to take vacation?
      Riker: I believe there are two ensigns stationed on deck 39 who know nothing about it.

  • Notes
