Goof: In the season one episode, "Hide and Seek", McKay repeatedly tries to remove the shield device from his body himself, yet is unable to grasp it. However, Lucious has no problem picking it up and moving it about his body at will.
Goof: Sheppard uses Lucius' shield to protect himself in the fight with Kolya and his men. The episode "Hide and Seek" stated that once one person had worn the shield it imprints on them and won't work on anyone else.
When the team are surrounded by the supposed rebels, there are many close-up shots of the gang leader who is holding a magnum pistol. Your classic Earth revolving-chamber weapon, has its chambers completely empty, as seen by the progressively clearer shots of the gang leader.
This is the second Stargate episode in which Lucius appears, and both titles of the episodes have been named after his characteristics.
When Ronon tries to punch Lucius is reminiscent of when Grodin tried to punch McKay in "Hide and Seek".
This episode reveals that all those military officers who supported Cowen have since been expelled or driven out of Genii territories, several have become mercenaries following the coup d'état by Ladon Radim.
For the very first time in a Stargate episode, the P90 machine gun is fitted with a silencer on the end of the barrel. Its appearance is during Sheppard's aborted rescue of Lucius from the village tavern.
When Lucius used mission reports from Atlantis to tell his stories, he wasn't the first person to use them to tell stories. Joe Spencer (in "Citizen Joe") used O'Neill's mission reports to tell them to his friends and family along with trying to get them published.
Goof During the first story-telling scene after the opening titles, there is a close-up shot of three women. The one on the right is wearing a dirndl with a green skirt, a white bodice, and a pink blouse. You can see her again in the background of close-ups of McKay and Teyla, but she's replaced by a man in a yellow suit on the wide shots of the crowd.
Sheppard: You're not taking on Kolya and his men.
Lucius: Why not? They can't hurt me. I've got the personal shield.
McKay: And if they burn the town down around you out of spite?
Lucius: Well, that would be petty of 'em.
Sheppard: Yeah well, they're like that.
Amaris: We have no hope of defeating these soldiers.
Ronon: You will with our help.
Amaris: They why did you not do so before?
Teyla: We were concerned with the safety of the village.
Ronon: Now we don't care.
Lucius: Hey, you're trying to figure out a way to hurt me, aren't you?
Lucius: Yeah. Well, you keep thinking, big boy.
Sheppard: All right, I'm putting a stop to this.
Lucius: Oh, come on! They just got started.
Sheppard: I'm not talking about the foot massage...Actually, I am talking about the foot massage.
McKay: Am I the only person here who thinks he is taking advantage of these poor people?
Sheppard: Come on, Rodney, you just want another crack at that shield.
McKay: You're damned right I do. Look, it could come in extremely handy. He's practically wasting it!
(The entire team offers to take Rodney's place.)
Kolya: How positively moving. I almost wish I could shoot you all at once.
Beckett: If we act now we risk injuring the villagers.
Rodney: (nervously) And us. We risk injuring us.
Kolya: I have to give Colonel Sheppard credit. No opponent's ever caused me this much trouble. Unfortunately I'm going to have to kill him.
Rodney: Funny, he says the same thing about you.
Kolya: Really? I'm flattered.
Lucius: So go ahead. Shoot them.
Sheppard: Good idea.
Teyla: Colonel, you can't.
Sheppard: Just Kolya.
Teyla: The shooting will not stop there.
Ronon: She's right, we'll have to kill them all. I'm all right with that, by the way.
Lucius: You sure you guys can't stay for some schnitzel? I mean, this is a party for you guys as much as anybody, right?
Sheppard: You guys have a good time. We're overdue.
Lucius: Well, thanks for everything.
Sheppard: Just remember: stay out of trouble or we'll be back.
Kolya: I should have killed you when we first met, Colonel. It would have saved me a lot of trouble.
Sheppard: The feeling's mutual.
Lucius: Okay, okay: what if I swung from a clock tower on a long rope right into town?
Lucius: I dunno. That's all I have. I could set myself on fire.
Sheppard: I like that.
Lucius: Okay. Um, I could run naked? Oh, I know, I know, I have one! What if I got on your shoulders and we have a cloak that they... it's some religious thing... they could be afraid of giants. Okay, what if we build a tunnel, okay? We could tunnel... or a boulder, a huge boulder. I'm camouflaged, I'm protected, now the boulder protects you... or, um, a magnifying glass and some tape...
Sheppard: I have an idea, Lucius.
Lucius: ...some poison tape!
Lucius: I'm coming with you.
Sheppard: You sure?
Lucius: No. Um... yeah, I am, I am. I'm coming with you... just...
Sheppard: Yes or no?
Lucius: I... Don't pressure me like this! I'm gonna come with you...
Sheppard: Make up your mind!
Lucius: ... and I'll help you out, okay? Oh, boy, they'd better give me a parade for this one.
(While the team is incarcerated)
Beckett: Rodney, you're not trying to dig your way out of here, are you?
McKay: See if you can find another spoon. With someone helping, this would go twice as fast.
Sheppard: What are we gonna do?! Well, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna get by Kolya's men so I can get to the Gate and call for reinforcements.
Lucius: Reinforcements? What d'you say we just get off this planet?
Sheppard: My team is back there!
Lucius: Yeah, so is the guy who wants to bury me alive.
Sheppard: Oh, you're done playing hero now, are you? Fine, you can leave as soon as we get to the Gate. Just keep up.
Lucius: You're angry, aren't you?
Sheppard: Shut up.
Lucius: See, that's anger.
Lucius: What are you doing here?
Sheppard: Kolya's got all the exits out of town covered and rumour has it they were gonna bury you alive.
Lucius: I can't believe it! You came to save me?
Sheppard: Yeah, well neither can I.
Kolya: That personal shield of yours is very interesting.
Kolya: If we were to bury you alive, it would protect you from the weight of the soil, but you would still suffocate. A fascinating way to die, don't you think?
Lucius: Gotta tell you, it's not that fascinating to me.
Kolya(laughing): It is to me.
Lucius:(after revealing a secret room) See, I like to entertain and on occasion a husband 'll get angry, come lookin' for his wife, so to avoid an awkward scenario...
Sheppard: OK, we get it.
Sheppard: The soldiers are Genii. They're part of a...
Lucius: Oh, I know all about Kolya and the Genii. When I was on Atlantis, I perused...
Sheppard: ... mission reports, right, right.
Teyla: You are taking advantage of these people.
Lucius: I know it looks that way, but I was being honest about that bunch of thugs that attacked this village a couple of months ago. You know, this is a nice town, nice people, and they needed somebody to save 'em, so I did. I was a hero! Now, today's incident...
McKay: You mean performance.
Lucius: It was just my way of reminding them of that fact, but I insisted the guns not be loaded so nobody would get hurt.
Sheppard(sarcastically): That was nice of you!
Lucius: Oh. Well, I guess the only thing left to do is for you to thank me.
Ronon: What for?
Lucius: For saving your lives.
Sheppard: Thank you.
Lucius: Please, it was nothing.
Sheppard: Yeah, it was nothing!
Lucius(angrily): What are you talking about, it was nothing? These people had you on your knees.
Sheppard: Yes, they did.
Lucius: Well? You're welcome.
Lucius: So I finish off the last Wraith guard and I turn around and I look at the Queen and I say, "You know, if you were twenty pounds heavier, you'd look like my ex-wife."
Lucius: As it turns out, I had this personal shield all along. It was a gift from one of my many admirers back at the old village, you know, before I was forced to pack up and leave, thank you very much! Anyway, I didn't even know what it was until I went to Atlantis. I perused some of the mission reports about the Ancient device that you guys discovered...
McKay: You did an awful lot of perusing while you were on the base.
Lucius: I peruse. It's a gift.
McKay: Hang on, hang on. So you beat them up.
Lucius: Yes! Me! I did!
Ronon: How'd you manage that?
Lucius: It's not so hard ... when you're invincible. I'm invincible.
Sheppard: How'd you lead the people to safety?
Ronon: You said the way out was blocked.
Lucius: Oh, you were listening. That's good, that's good, because it was. It was blocked, until I cleared a path through the burning wreckage and, ignoring the searing heat and the flames that were just swirling and swirling...
Sheppard: But how did you, uh...?
Lucius: Okay. That's enough reminiscing for today.
Lucius: (getting blood drawn) Ow! Ow! Thought you said that wasn't gonna hurt!
Beckett: I lied.
Amaris: Here he is: the mightiest of heroes. Our champion protector: Lucius Lavin.
Lucius: Well! Will you look who it is?!
Ronon: You've got to be kidding me!
Teyla: My fellow Athosians also speak of a great hero who protects this town.
Ronon: Rumour has it he's a warrior with some impressive kills to his credit, including the Wraith.
Amaris: This is true.
Ronon(grinning): Then, uh, there's a good chance he is one of my people.
Sheppard: My childhood hero was Evel Knievel.
Teyla: Was he not evil?
Sheppard: No, that was just his name. He was a daredevil... which isn't a kind of a devil, he just jumped motorcycles over things.
Sheppard: Just because. Didn't always make it, either.
Teyla: And you greatly admired this behaviour?
Sheppard: No, I just... Look, at least my hero is human. McKay's is Batman!
Sheppard: Where's McKay?
McKay: I'm here, I'm here. I just had to get my autograph book in case Teyla's superhero turned out to be the real deal.
Teyla: They're good traders and kind people.
Weir: I don't recall there being many superheroes.
Ronon: Sounds like one of my people.
Sheppard: So you want to hide?
McKay: We can call it strategic concealment.
Sheppard: So, he's made mistakes in the past. Who hasn't?
McKay: Why are you looking at me?!
McKay: I thought that personal shield was depleted.
Sheppard: Oh, yeah.
Teyla: Then it is worthless?
Sheppard: Pretty much.
Beckett: You're not gonna tell Lucius?
Lucius: (in background) Kick me as hard as you can! Ow! Ow! Ow!
Sheppard: He´ll figure it out.
Lucius: See, invincible. I can't be vinced.
Sheppard: At least my hero is human, McKay's is Batman!
McKay: Hmmm, misunderstood and unappreciated by many, his most formidable weapon is the power of his brilliant mind. Not just a hero, a superhero!
Ronon: Ramaka Aha-Toren, my first unit commander, he once fought and killed twelve enemy soldiers, gutting them with his bare hands. He was also a funny guy too.
McKay: Yes I can imagine the jokes and the entrails flying.
Teyla: My fellow Athosian, who spoke to me of this hero, saw him in action against several armed men.
Ronon: I do that all the time.
The original setting for this episode was supposed to be a western-style border town, hence the western theme that runs throughout the episode.

Lucius' Rescue Ideas: Um, I could run naked?
This refers to Lethal Weapon 4, in which Riggs (Mel Gibson) makes Murtaugh (Danny Glover) run naked (and impersonating a chicken) to distract a madman with a flame thrower.
Sheppard: No, I just ... Look, at least my hero is human. McKay's is Batman!
The comic book character Batman (originally referred to as The Batman, and occasionally as The Bat-Man), is a fictional character and superhero who first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939. Although the character was co-created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, only Kane receives official credit for the character.
Sheppard: My childhood hero was Evel Knievel.
Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel (born October 17, 1938 in Butte, Montana and died November 30, 2007) is an American stuntman, best known for his public displays of distance motorcycle jumping which often resulted in serious injuries, particularly during the 1970s. The consummate salesman, he was able to turn his popularity into a marketing juggernaut with products ranging from radios to action figures. The picture beside Sheppard's bed is an actual photograph of a very young Joe Flanigan (Sheppard) and Evel Knievel.
Batman: When hiding the Atlantis team in his home, Lucius unveils a secret compartment in his house which has an entrance behind a grandfather clock. This entrance into a secret compartment is identical to the entrance to the Batcave in Batman. At the beginning of the episode, Batman was established as Rodney's hero.
Lucius' Rescue Ideas: Building a Tunnel
This refers to Hogan's Heroes where the protagonists almost always used tunnels to rescue people.
Lucius' Rescue Ideas: Swinging from the clock tower into town on a long rope.
This refers to Back to the Future, where Doc swings from the clock tower at the last minute to connect the circuit.
Lucius' rescue ideas: The cloak, lighting on fire and fear of giants.
This is a reference to The Princess Bride when the giant hero wore a cloak and set himself on fire to scare off the guards surrounding the princess.
