* YouLookFamiliar: Richard is played by Carlos Jacott, who previously appeared as Ken in the ''Series/{{Buffy|The vampire Slayer}}'' episode "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E1Anne Anne]]." A rare Buffyverse example in that both characters are mostly seen without demon makeup, making it a pretty clear case of MostDefinitelyNotAVillain. Jacott would later appear in the first two episodes of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' as Lawrence Dobson.
