|“||Only in France does a king need an audience to shite.||”|
Life in Paris is not without its trials as Jamie struggles to triumph over the traumas of his past. A fortunate meeting with Jacobite leader Prince Charles presents opportunities, while the Duke of Sandringham's presence brings complications.
Claire and Jamie set about making influential friends in their efforts to stop the Jacobite rebellion after Jamie fails to convince Charles Stuart of the futility of an invasion. Securing an invitation to Versailles - where Jamie cures the king's constipation - they make the acquaintance of lustful Minister of Finance Duverney, as well as re-encountering the Duke of Sandringham, a Jacobite supporter. Claire befriends Mary Hawkins, a shy young English girl betrothed to be married but more interested in the duke's young secretary Alexander Randall. He is the younger brother of Black Jack whom Claire is alarmed to learn is still alive.

- The episode title is a reference to the phrase "not in Kansas anymore" from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
- In the French court, the background music is Music for the Royal Fireworks, one would think somewhat appropriate at first glance, but it was actually composed by George Frideric Handel under contract from George II of England, for the fireworks in London's Green Park celebrating the end of the War of the Austrian Succession in 1749, some five years later.
- When Jamie and Claire are speaking to the French Minister of Finance, Monsieur Duverney after he has just finished hitting on Claire and embarrassing himself, he says to them both- "If my wife had caught me attempting to make love to yet another woman... " (motions to slitting his throat) "oh, yeah. My beloved possesses a fiery temper." The first recorded use of the word "yeah" was not until 1902 so it would not have been used in 1744, the year in which Claire and Jamie are currently in.
