Episode Quotes
Hoshi: Do you think it was my fault?
T'Pol: I didn't say that.
Hoshi: You implied it.
T'Pol: I simply noted that linguistic matters fall within your responsibility. For all we know, it was Mr. Tucker's table manners that offended them.

Mayweather: Are you staying for the movie tonight?
Malcolm: What's playing?
Mayweather: Wages of Fear. Classic French film. No, you'll like it. Things blow up.
Malcolm: Sounds fun.

Malcolm: Two and a half hours?
Mayweather: Two hours and 24 minutes.
Malcolm: That seems awfully long for a movie about four men in a truck.
Mayweather: You'll be on the edge of your seat.
Malcolm: You promised me explosions.
Mayweather: Don't worry.

Archer: Oh, number eight on Texas just fouled one of my boys. He's gonna be ejected for 20 seconds.
Tucker: Is that fair? It gives your guys an advantage.
Archer: Well, that's the point. I don't suppose it'd be practical to put a pool on the ship.
Tucker: I wouldn't wanna be taking a swim if the gravity plating went off-line.
Archer: No. No.

Episode Goofs
When Tucker opens the airlock in the initial scene, he uses the com panel, not the airlock control panel.
