Trivia:This episode's plot bears a striking resemblence (but most probably coincidental) to the title of the 1967 Beatles' song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"; Lucy could refer to Lucy Lawless, and Xena (her character) is planning to shoot a diamond into the sky.
"Joxer`s dignity was slightly harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, Gabrielle`s pink nightie was restored to its original condition."
[Announcer] "In time of ancient Gods, Warlords and Kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world."
