  • A working title for this episode was 'Flotsam And Jetsam'.

Memorable Quotes
  • Gwen: And who are you then?
    I'm Captain Jack Harkness.
    I did some research, and there's only one Captain Jack Harkness on record, and he disappeared in 1941.
    Jack: Well, that couldn't be me. Could it?
  • Jack: The 21st century is when it all changes, and you've gotta be ready.
  • Gwen: So, you catch aliens.
    Jack: Yep.
    Gwen: You catch aliens for a living.
    Jack: Yes we do.
    Gwen: You're an alien catcher.
    Jack: Yes I am.
    Gwen: Caught any good aliens?
    Jack: Tons of them.
    Gwen: That's a hell of a job.
  • PC Andy: CSI Cardiff - I'd like to see that! They'd be measuring the velocity of a kebab!
  • Jack: No idea. We know how to use it, not how it happens. But if I were to guess, I would say that there was once a dimensionally transcendental chameleon circuit placed right on this spot, which welded its perception properties to a spatial-temporal Rift. But that sounds kind of ridiculous. Invisible lift's got more of a ring to it, don't you think?
  • Jack: Torchwood's got a vacancy. Job going spare. Do you want it?
    Gwen: But what do you need me for?
    Jack: Because maybe you were right. We could do more to help. What d' you think? Wanna join up?
    Gwen: Yeah. I do, yes.
  • Hospital Porter: (About the Weevil) Oh, there's a face! Tell you what, mate, you should try plastic surgery. Not on the NHS, mind.
