After covering his lost eye with a bandage since the beginning of the season, Tigh finally begins wearing an eyepatch.
In the American airing on the Sci-Fi Channel, Adama's line about Bulldog's "bullshit attitiude" was censored. It appears to be the only known instance, as other countries and DVDs leave the line intact.
For the second episode in a row, the Hybrid is absent even though Tiffany Lyndall-Knight remains credited.
Three's vision of the five figures between her death and resurrection takes place inside the opera house from Baltar's vision on Kobol.
Although James Callis and Grace Park appear in this episode, neither have any lines.
This marks the first appearance of the Final Five, though their identities are obscured.
Tory Foster: (regarding a portrait of Baltar) Is there really any place left in the universe deserving of such a rare and distinguished item?
Roslin: I was thinking put it in the bathroom right over the toilet.
Adama: How the hell did you escape a Cylon Baseship?
Bulldog: Well, sir, it's like this. The enemy had me locked in a cell for three years. The accommodations were lousy, the service was slow, and after a while I felt the institution no longer had anything left to offer me. So I left. (cracks a smile)
Adama: You had me worried there for a moment. I thought maybe the Cylons had beaten the bullshit attitude out of you.
Tigh: A drink?
Bulldog: You have no idea.
Tigh: (under his breath) Yes, I do.
Tigh: Sometimes surviving can be its own death sentence. I know that.
Adama: I started it. Initiated it.
Lee: Wait a minute. You started what? Started what?
Adama: The attacks on the Colonies. By crossing the line, I showed them that we were the warmongers they figured us to be. And I... I left them but one choice: to attack us before we attacked them.
Lee: No. No. Because it wasn't just you. They put you there. They put you there, across the line. You had no choice. That was the Admiralty. That was the - That was the military. You were one mission. You were one man. One man.
Adama: It only takes one.
Roslin: I'd like to propose this: you seem hellbent on paying some kind of penance for whatever is you think you've done. So instead of resigning, why don't you get up and walk out of here, meet me on the port hangar deck tomorrow evening for the ceremony, and let me pin a frakking medal to your chest?
Adama: I can't.
Roslin: It's not for you. It's for them. Stand up there, acknowledge your fleet, and give them what they need: a hero. That'll be your penance, even if it kills you.
Yet again, Luciana Carro's first name is misspelled with an additional 'n'.
Throughout the episode, it's said that the stealth mission took place a year before the events of the miniseries while Adama was commander of Valkyrie. However, dialogue in many previous episodes imply that Adama has been in command of Galactica for at least two years prior to the Cylon attack. In fact, a close examination of the dossier seen in the episode provides a time of six years, which seems most likely as in "Litmus" Adama says that Tyrol has been under his command for five years, the longest time given prior to this episode.
