The bonus scene played at episode's end is a conversation between Dualla and Gaeta in which they discuss Roslin's visits to Galactica. Gaeta's only scene in the actual episode is a single scene in which he has no dialogue.

This episode takes place 49 days since the last Cylon attack. It is not known, however, what attack is being referred to.



Episode Quotes
Helo: (noticing Hotdog rubbing near his groin area) What's the matter with you?
Hotdog: Sorry. I've got the weirdest rash.
Helo: Really. Hope she was worth it, buddy.
(Helo and Athena move one seat away)

Adama: He's like both of us. Proud, stubborn, and angry. But he's coming into his own, especially in the last few months.
Carolanne: Don't tell me. Tell him.
Adama: He knows.
Carolanne: Knows what? That the Admiral's going to give him a good performance review? Or that his father loves him? Don't tell me the Admiral's facade extends to Lee, too.

Lee: (referring to a box) So what's this?
Dualla: Oh, it was here when I got it. It's from your father.
Lee: Is it ticking?



Cultural References
The title of this episode shares its name with the name of a Beatles song.

Tyrol: I seemed to have turned this into a full-blown FUBAR.

FUBAR is a slang term that originated in the military. It is an acronym that usually means "fucked up beyond all repair", though this varies respectively with the alternating words "foul" and "recognition" (though "repair" is most appropriate in this case).
