Memorable Quotes

"Tonight we welcome a new brother into our family. He will live and work among us, and will be welcome here all the rest of our days."

- Samuel (Tabula Rasa)



  • Prior to the filming of the baptism, executive producer and episode director Jim Chory graciously decided to test out the water first. Fully clothed, he got into the water to make sure it was warm enough for Robert Knepper and Zachary Quinto. Before he got out, Jim said, "Okay, no peeing in the pool!"
