* ActorAllusion: Partially averted. Bill Mumy asked to have a scene with his old ''Series/LostInSpace'' co-star June Lockhart, but JMS refused, as the only purpose of having a scene with Rosen and Lennier would be the meta-reference, rather than anything that added to the story. But Mumy still got his way, as he snuck into one of Rosen's scenes out of makeup as a background extra, without asking permission.

Elsewhere, one Karl Edward Mueller has just been found guilty of murdering two lurkers and one security officer, with sentencing to he handed down the next day. Elsewhere still, Ivanova goes down to Downbelow to confront Dr. Franklin about an unauthorized clinic he's been running. He doesn't want to shut down because there's a dozen people outside waiting to see him. Ivanova tells him there's only half a dozen, but she agrees to not tell anyone about this if she can help out. Franklin sends her in back to get changed into something more practical, then goes to see where the other half dozen went.

With the Mueller situation over, Garibaldi can now concentrate on other things, like who started the fight in the casino. Ivanova informs him that they've already identified the responsible parties. She tells him, provoking a pronounced reaction. "[[BigWhat WHAT]]?"

Franklin sends her in back to get changed into something more practical, then goes to see where the other half dozen went. In a meeting to decide Mueller's fate, Garibaldi is loudly advocating spacing him. The ombudsman disagrees, saying that's only an option for treason. Legally the only recourse they have is life imprisonment, which they don't have the room for and Earth Central isn't willing to cover, or a mind wipe, which will require Talia's services. She is reluctant, not wanting to go inside a killer's mind, but she eventually agrees.

At the Dark Star, Londo has just arrived with Lennier in tow. The Minbari is quite obviously out of place there, but Londo leads him up to the front near the stage, but when he goes for his credit chit, he claims he left it in his quarters. Lennier's protest over using his chit is cut off when the dancer onstage [[DressHitsFloor drops her skirt]] and Lennier finds himself entranced. A waitress brings two drinks, and Lennier asks if there is any alcohol in them. Londo brushes his concerns aside...until Lennier explains what happens if a Minbari drinks it, at which point Londo hastily grabs his glass and orders a water for him instead.

Talia prepares herself for her encounter with Mueller. He is not cooperative, but there's nothing he can do. She begins the scan, and immediately sees his memory of killing the security officer. "Another voice for the choir", he says, and shows her the faces of all the people he's killed over the years. Talia lurches out of his mind and backs away from him with a horrified look, as he says ominously, "I'll save a place for you." Franklin is looking at some follow-up reports on the people Rosen's treated, and is stunned to see that they actually are improving. He heads off to see her, and watches as she treats another patient, running a scan as he does. When she's finished he offers an apology, then tells her what he found: the machine is taking her life energy and transferring it to her patients. She Also reveals that she has an incurable case of Lake's Syndrome, which gives her about three years to live. Eventually the two come to an agreement. She will continue to use the machine, as long as she comes to Medlab each week for a checkup. She also asks that he not tell her daughter what he knows. She wouldn't understand.

In the casino, Lennier is doing quite well, as indicated by the pile of chips in front of him, and the other player's reactions whenever he blurts out the odd of his current hand. Londo starts lifting cards from the far side of the table by means of a tentacle like appendage that comes out of his shirt, until someone puts a pitcher of ice water right on top of it. Londo's attempts to get it out draw the attention of the other players, who realize Londo's been cheating. One of them tries to attack him, but Lennier knocks the aggressor down. He then tries to get Londo and leave, but the other patrons are now forming a menacing circle around the pair.

* VerbThis: After giving Londo some instructions, a Centauri minister says, "I'll be in touch." After the line is closed, Londo replies, "Touch this." He then gestures to his sides, which are where the Centauri "attributes" are located, making it also a case of GettingCrapPastTheRadar. (It's not until later in the episode that the significance of this gesture becomes clear, though it could possibly be guessed.)
