  • Trivia

    • Ki-Adi-Mundi appears as a secondary character in all three films of the Prequel Trilogy, and in the original Clone Wars series in "Chapter XX" and "Chapter XXI." He fights on Geonosis in Attack of the Clones, and is killed by his Clone Troopers in Revenge of the Sith.

    • Obi-Wan Kenobi mentioned how he was attacked by the Reek, Acklay and Nexu in Attack of the Clones. This is technically untrue, only the Acklay attacked Obi-Wan. The Reek and Nexu were attacking Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala respectively.

    • A painting of Numa, the Twi'lek infant from "Innocents of Ryloth" can be seen on the left side of Boil's helmet.

    • This is the first episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars to premiere on a Wednesday instead of a Friday. It premiered at 8:00pm (ET).

    • Ki-Adi-Mundi's gunship has a skull-faced clone trooper helmet painted on it, with the phrase "Separatist Nightmare" written on it in Aurebesh.

    • Early in the episode, Anakin and Ahsoka are said to have arrived from an engagement near Dorin. According to the expanded universe, this is the homeworld of the Kel Dor, Plo Koon's species.

    • Newsreel:
      Counterattack! With the clone army stretched in a desparate attempt to engage General Grievous' Starfleet, Separatists planets that were once thought secure are now rising up against the Republic. On Geonosis, Separatist leader Poggle the Lesser, safe in his newly ray-shielded factories, creates thousands of terrible new weapons which march off the assembly line against the outnumbered clone army. The Jedi, resolute in the effort to restore order to the Republic, mount a massive invasion to retake Geonosis and shut down Poggle's factories once and for all...

      Jedi Fortune Cookie: "Believe in yourself or no one else will."

  • Quotes

    • Admiral Yularen: Good luck, General.
      Ki-Adi-Mundi: There is no such thing as luck.

    • Anakin Skywalker: You were supposed to study the maps.
      Ahsoka Tano: I did! Remember when I told you about the giant wall, and you said "don't worry, we won't be anywhere near there."?

    • Master Mundi: 65, Skywalker.
      Anakin Skywalker: I'm sorry?
      Master Mundi: My total, 65. So, what do I win?
      Anakin Skywalker: My everlasting respect, master Mundi.
      Master Mundi: Oh...
      Obi-Wan Kenobi: That's a gift Anakin rarely bestows. I assure you.

    • Obi-Wan Kenobi's gunship has a painted illustration of a nexu creature on it, with the phrase "Bad Kitty" written on it in Aurebesh. "Bad Kitty" was the ILM animation crew's nickname of the nexu during the making of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
