"You've got to take me with you, teach me everything you know."

This episode marks the first appearance of Xena's default outfit, of which she will wear almost exclusively until "The Ides of March". It will later return (with a more waxed finish) in "Amphipolis Under Siege", and become her permanent costume once again from "Looking Death in the Eye" onwards.
This episode marks the first appearance of Gabrielle's "farmgirl" outfit. She will wear this until "Hooves and Harlots", 10 episodes later.
