  • Quotes (12)

    • Colin: Congratulations, Bethany. You're the first sales rep to ever be late on her very first day. Quite an impression.
      Bethany: I'm sorry, Colin.
      Colin: No problem. Though you might save that apology for Mr. White, 'cause he and his lawyer have been waiting for almost an hour. His wife died last week in a car accident, but Penny's been able to encode some memories from the original brain tissue, so at least we're not working with a blank slate.
      Bethany: Did he request any enhancements?
      Colin: Uh, took a few years off her, I think. They usually do.
      Bethany: She was only 30.
      Colin: Well, 30's the new 40. Didn't you get the memo?
      Bethany: Surprised he didn't order double D's.

    • Julia: (voiceover) Memories are tricky things. Sometimes they're real and sometimes they're imagined. I remember being in a dark claustrophobic place; somewhere cold. I try to move my arms, but they're numb. I hear machinery whining in the background and sometimes I can feel someone watching me. I don't know how I got here, and every time I try to remember, it only comes in small pieces, fractured, like broken glass. My name is Stephanie, that much I'm sure of. Stephanie White. And I think I might've died.

    • Bethany: I saw her once, you know. The girl Adrian was...
      Julia: You saw her? What did she look like?
      Bethany: Naked.
      Julia: Ouch. So, you actually caught... Sorry. No wonder you have nightmares.
      Bethany: We never even really talked about it. Most women would've screamed or yelled. I should've at least thrown something. That's what women do in these situations. Right?
      Julia: I don't know. Last time I argued with my husband, he threw me down a flight of stairs and killed me.
      Bethany: (chuckles) Yeah, I should've done that to him.

    • Colin: (looking at the protesters) Look at them. We offer a chance to live longer and healthier, to save lives, and what do they do? They march in protest. Yesterday it was stem cells, today it's cloning. I gotta admit, part of me admires them in a weird sort of way.
      Laura: Admire them? They're idiots.
      Colin: No, they're believers. They're willing to sacrifice everything they have for what they believe in. I can't say I've ever believed in anything that much.
      Laura: Samantha's father, Jacob, he's the believer, not her. You know why? Because he can fucking walk!

    • Colin: I built 4Ever Innovations to improve upon creation, not replace it. To repair damaged organs, to bring back those we've lost. And perhaps in time, to discover a way to live beyond the limits of mortality.

    • Julia: If someone is only alive because another person died, how should they feel about that?
      Priest: How do you feel about it?
      Julia: I should feel guilty, I guess. But I don't. It's like I'm living someone else's life. I, I don't know who I am. I'm the carbon copy of a dead woman, inside and out.
      Priest: I'm afraid I don't understand.
      Julia: The reason I'm here, what I wanted to ask you is... Father, do you think clones have souls?

    • Penny: (while having sex with Victor) Don't stop! Make Penny pop!

    • Julia: Well, I can pretend to be like everyone else, but let's face it, I'm a clone with the memories of a dead woman. Everything I have, or like, or even remember, isn't really mine.
      Bethany: Well, you got us.
      Laura: For what that's worth. Hey, come on. Three attractive ladies, sitting at home bitching on a Sunday night, not a man in sight.
      Bethany: Amen!

    Allusions (1)

    • When Bethany Montrose walked in on Julia in the process of erasing her stored memories, Bethany commanded the computer to stop, saying, "Authorization Montrose 1138." The number 1138 was an allusion to the sci-fi movie THX 1138, written and directed by George Lucas in 1971.

  • Fan Reviews (4)
  • How hard is it to understand that anything aired after 10pm on Cinemax is going to be infused with adult content and material. When reading the description of the show it's classified as adult; not science fiction, not a mystery/suspense or anything else.

  • Forbidden Science is an interesting look at the future of Cloning Technology. This is a subject which has been underrepresented in the media and offers great scope for a new and hard hitting show.
