    • (Xena and Gabrielle argue after she puts the pinch on a soldier)
      Soldier: Uhh, could you guys talk about this some other time?
      Xena: Oh, yeah, I've cut off the...
      Soldier: ...Flow of blood to my brain. I've heard all about it. What do you want to know?

    • Gabrielle: Another one's fallen for you.
      Xena: Again! Why does this always happen?
      Gabrielle: (sighs) It's the blue eyes, the leather. Some guys just love leather.
      Xena: I think a wardrobe change is in order.
      Gabrielle: You could wear chain mail?
      Xena: Yeah, but I think that would just attract a kinkier group.
      Gabrielle: You're probably right.
      Xena: On the other hand, I could just stop bathing and wear a smelly wolf's skin around. That would turn 'em off!
      Gabrielle: That's true. Of course, then you would also be traveling alone.

    • Gabrielle: Which way?
      Xena: I don't know, I've never been here before.
      Gabrielle: Xena, you know, you should've asked for instructions while you had the pinch on that guy.
      Xena: Well, you were there, why didn't you ask him?
      Gabrielle: Oh, like you would want me butting in on one of your pinch interrogations.
      Xena: Why not? You ask good questions.
      Gabrielle: Really? Thank you!

    • Hower: Does Xena ever think about settling down and getting married?
      Gabrielle: No. She likes what I d-- (she's hit by a fish) I think she likes what she's doing.

    • Gabrielle: We did it! We did it! Yeah! When Gareth gets here, we're gonna have a-- piece of parchment floating in the air...with a belt-buckle hanging on it. Xena, what is this supposed to do?

    • Xena: Are you sitting on the soap?
      Gabrielle: I was wondering what that was.

    • Gabrielle: Two villages in dire straits. I hate when that happens.

    • Gabrielle: Xena, this was our only frying pan. Why do you do that. You do have weapons, don't you?!
      Xena: I like to be creative in a fight. It gets my juices flowing.
      Gabrielle: Can we cook with your juices?!

  • Notes

    • In Australia, this episode aired before "Intimate Stranger". So with the airing out of order, the viewers learn that it was Xena is in Callisto's body who killed Theodorus and the surprise of this body switching and the killing was essentially spoiled.

    • The special effect used to make Gareth appear larger than Xena is called a forced perspective shot.

    • Xena battling Gareth was originally intended for the episode "The Giant Killer" earlier in the season, but that episode was too long, so it was cut from the story and used here instead.

    • Ever noticed the piece of roadkill in Gareth's footprint? That was real. On the way to the shoot Michael Hurst, the episode's director saw it and said it was just what the shot needed.

    • This episode is regarded as one of the 10 classic Xena episodes of all time.

    • Lucy Lawless and Xena Executive Producer Robert Tapert announced that they were getting married just before putting the episode "A Day In The Life" together.

    • DISCLAIMER: No Slippery Eels were harmed during the production of this motion picture despite their reputation as a fine delicacy in select cultures of the known world.
