In the scene, the two are brushing their teeth with fancy toothbrushes, in matching red pajamas, which Rapp told Variety are “very, very, very, very, very comfortable.”

Said Cruz in the scene: “Well, one tends to worry when they’re doomed to love a brilliant but reckless maniac who’s willing to risk his life for glory….You may not care about you. But I do.”
Cruz tweeted that he was moved to tears by the scene.

The episode was also notable in that it was the first time an F-bomb has been dropped in the franchise. Twice.
We’ll post video if it becomes available.
