- Funny Background Event: The privilege of launching Sam off of the planet was, apparently, raffled off. The Inspector won.
- Sam gets into an extended conversation with the ship's computer, where he points out that his ownership of the vessel led to Florence restoring her to working order, which led to directly taking the ship's own interests into account, which led to Niomi being a passenger. Because Niomi is a human, she is by default captain by the ship's terms (highest-ranking human on board); thus, she now has a human captain. And because she's only there by Sam's permission, Sam is responsible for the ship having a human captain.(cut to Niomi and Florence in the cockpit)Niomi: Problem?Florence: I'm not sure. It looks like the computer locked up.
- Cut back to the ship proclaiming that Sam is not human and thus his life does not have the same value as a human's. Sam proceeds to point out that humans have various priceless categories that they value more than human life.Sam: If you want to put me in that category, I'm okay with that.(cut to Niomi and Florence again)Florence: (concerned) This is very odd. The computer starts working and then it locks up again.
- Cut back to the ship proclaiming that Sam is not human and thus his life does not have the same value as a human's. Sam proceeds to point out that humans have various priceless categories that they value more than human life.
- As part of a mandatory ethics test, Mr. Kornada was given the classic "Trolley Problem" and chose to hit one person instead of five... because "It would do less damage to the trolley". The officer processing this is rightly disturbed by this rationale.
- Sam tells Florence about his planet's religious beliefs, and that thievery is something of a rite of passage among Sqids, to the point of stealing from the Gods. He also mentions how disappointed human explorers were when they were treated as Gods.

They were at a loss for how to steal the fire until Lairee "used his head", whereupon Mho "improved upon his technique". Translation: Lairee has tufts of moss on his head, one of them ignited, and Mho proceeded to rip the burning moss off and impale it on a stick.
