Characters appearing or mentioned in this episode








Didja Notice?


Rothwyn records a report, referring to the study in which she's participating as "Experimental project ES stroke five stroke treble seven." (ES/5/777)


At 3:19 on the DVD, the music that plays from the baby's music box is "Brahm's Lullaby", a well-known lullaby (often commonly referred to as "Go to Sleep").


At 14:24 on the DVD, Sapphire is seen to be wearing a ring above the middle joint of the little finger on her right hand.


Trying to puzzle through the current time anomaly, Steel remarks to Sapphire that nobody should mess around with time "except us". Presumably, by "except us", he is referring not only to himself and Sapphire, but also the other "elements" of the forces controlling our dimension (as implied in the opening preamble of each episode).


Sapphire tells Steel that the family living in an isolated apartment here in the 20th Century is from about 1500 years in the future. It's interesting to note that Steel, moments before, had remarked that people from the "not-too-distant" past or future were experimenting with time; apparently he considers 1500 years "not-too-distant", while most of us Earth-bound folks would consider that a fair distance!
