More amusing was Vir's bumbling attempt to describe to Ivanova (while asking her relationship advice about Lyndisty) the varying... levels of intimacy a Centauri couple could encounter while necking (a misleading word in this context if ever there was one), complete with sound effects and gestures indicating the difference between "one" and "six":
Vir: There were other women, but I never got past one.
Ivanova: You mean first base.
Vir: No, no, I mean one. You see, we have six, ah... we have six, you see, and each one is a different level of intimacy and pleasure. So, you know, first you have one, and that's... nnyeahh. Then there's two, and by the time you get to five it's like (starts panting loudly)...
- Also, Word of God has stated that Centauri females also have six, er, receptacles — three on each side of their spine.
- The original script for "Born to the Purple" called for a close-up of Adira's back, complete with "holes." Unfortunately, the show's very low budget nixed it.
