  • Quotes (7)

    • Vargas: (Gloating about a hit) Janasek was a learning experience. I found, if you remove the eye slowly, you can keep it connected to the optic nerve. He saw himself in a whole new light.

    • Carrie: (To Marshall) To tell you the truth I'm exhausted by the world. Everything...the evil and the rage and the darkness, and the last thing I need is some 15th Century dork telling me I've got a day and a half to live.

    • Jack: (to Vaughn) However, I recruited Dixon into SD-6. I'm the man who sold him the lie that he was working for the CIA. I introduced him to the man who killed his wife. I will not be the one to tell him he can't assist in Sloane's capture.

    • Vaughn: You're saying that 500 years ago Rambaldi drew the DNA profile of a man, who is alive today?

    • Sloane: I thought I’d have some satisfaction with Diane Dixon’s death... I killed the wrong person.

    Trivia (3)

    • GOOF: When Sydney and Dixon go to Mexico to find Vargas, she says: "dile que el Triad le tiene otro trabajo" ("tell him that the Triad has another job for him"). In Spanish, the Triad is a feminine noun, so you actually say "la Triada".

    • Number 47: Di Regno's DNA profile was a code key that allowed the CIA to decrypt page 94 of the Rambaldi manuscript (94 is two times 47).

    • So, Jack recruited Dixon, yet Dixon never bothered to mention to Sydney that he knew her father was an agent, before she learned he worked for SD-6?
