Continuity mistake: Bortus bites off a big chunk of a drinking glass on a dare, but when he and the crew leave the dining table, the drinking glass is intact.
Admiral Halsey: We would have offered you a command earlier, but you haven't really inspired anyone with all that much confidence this past year.
Ed Mercer: I know. I ha... I've had some personal stuff that's been going on. It's not really worth getting into. Can I have one of these mints?
Admiral Halsey: Those are marbles.
Trivia: The 1945 program Commander Kelly Grayson has created has the film "Anchors Aweigh" playing. "Anchors Aweigh" starred Gene Kelly and Kathryn Grayson. The film also included Jerry Mouse and Tom Cat. Tom and Jerry were created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. "Orville" creator, Seth MacFarlane, got his start working for Hanna-Barbera.
Question: I get that this may be an involved answer! They say the 2D beings are likely unaware of their presence, "because the cross-section is so small." But surely that doesn't really matter - a 3D person could be sliced in half by a wire the thickness of a hair, and they'd still be killed, so doesn't that apply to 2D being as well? They'll be leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, cutting buildings in half, etc., and none of them seem to care.
