Trivia

Delenn tells Captain Sheridan that we are all made of "star stuff." This is actually a reference to Cosmos (1980), where Carl Sagan says "The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff." See more »

Goofs

When Garibaldi describes his recipe he mentions melting butter into extra virgin olive oil. Virgin and especially extra virgin olive oil is "virgin" because the olives haven't been heated to extract the oil, which is why it is more expensive. Cooking with virgin (and especially extra virgin) olive oil destroys it's virgin qualities. Considering Garibaldi's background he would know this. See more »

Except for the first view by someone from B5 of the Shadows which i think is why they wrote this episode about as interesting as seeing grass grow.It almost became soap-opera and that is not a complement.Especially the actor playing Maynard did not make me feel like he was what he acted just an actor doing his lines.
