This episode marks Sam's first leap outside of the United States.
Besides Scott Bakula (Sam) and Dean Stockwell (Al), David Newsom (Tom Beckett) is the only other actor to appear in both episodes of this two-parter.
Colonel Deke Grimwald: I know it was Saturday because Dad always inspected the battalion on Saturday.
Maggie Dawson: Mmm. Grimwald. General Max Grimwald was your father? Ooh! Big shoes to fill, Colonel.
Colonel Deke Grimwald: Mine are a size and a half bigger.
Al: You know she's got the biggest, roundest...
Sam: Camera lens in Vietnam, I know.
Al: Oh yeah, that... Yeah. Yeah. Lens, too.
Tom Beckett: I still wouldn't take a reporter on a mission. Especially a female reporter.
Maggie Dawson: If you gotta take one, we're the best kind.
Al: She's got a point.
Sam: (narrating) Tom never talked about what SEALs did off-duty. And after a few hours with Bravo squad, I knew why. Mom would have had a cow.
Sam: Sappers are coming in from the river at midnight.
Al: Tough choice, kid.
Dempsey: Sir, Magic says sappers are crossing the river, Sir.
Colonel Deke Grimwald: How the hell does he know that?
Tom: Magic's got a sixth sense.
Al: Yeah, you could call me that.
Titi: Too dark for picture.
Maggie Dawson: Honey, this film can get exposure where the sun don't shine.
Al: Oh shoot!...(Maggie) put her jammies on.
Al: Sam, I am the one who thinks with his glands. Not you.
Al: Just remember you've got an ace in the hole. Me.
Al: What the hell, I get repatriated in five years.
Sam: You could have been free.
Al: I was free. (points to his head) Up here, I was always free.
