Episode Quotes
Charles Francis: You do remember me, right?
Olivia: Yeah. You're that tightwad who owes me $70.
Charles Francis: Damn it! I was--I was hoping you'd forget about that.

Charles Francis: As hospitals go, not bad.
Olivia: Yeah, unless it's run by an evil genius that's using accidents to kill people.

Alt Brandon: Do you miss it?
Secretary Bishop: Miss what?
Alt Brandon: Being a scientist.
Secretary Bishop: I am still a scientist, Brandon. I just have a much larger laboratory.

Peter: You're not from this world, Olivia. You're not her.
Olivia: You're not real.
Peter: Real is just a matter of perception. I am here. And I'm a part of you that you have to hold onto. You can't forget who you are, Olivia. You can't forget where you're from. You can't forget this. (kisses her)

Cultural References
Charles Francis: Now that you two have, uh, rediscovered your Vulcan mind meld....

From the Star Trek series, the Vulcans are a race of alien telepaths who suppress their emotions. Among their abilities is the "mind meld," which allows them to share thoughts with another being.
