  • show Description
  • Good vs. Evil (originally G vs. E) chronicles the battle of...well, Good vs. Evil. On the side of Evil: the Morlocks, who sign people to Faustian deals of wealth and power in return for their souls, and can only be killed by a dagger bathed in the blood of the innocent. On the side of Good: the Corps, lead by the Minister of Defense, Deacon Jones, and made up of people who have died when they were "on the bubble" between Heaven and Hell. They get to redeem themselves by fighting evil, and getting deal-makers to renounce their Faustian deal, but if they die before completing their redemption, then they go to Hell. They have three rules to follow: #1 - No Sex (sex with a disguised Morlock condemns them to Hell); #2 - No contact with people from their past life; and #3 - no magic powers, no spells, no crystal powers - if you die, you die. The show chronicles the adventures of Chandler Smythe, recent inductee into the Corps, and his partner Henry MacNeil. Chandler and Henry battle the Morlocks while dealing with their officious superiors Ford and Decker, and the fact that Chandler is still protective of his son Ben in violation of Rule #2.moreless

    • Henry: GDWREF. I wonder if its one of those deals where you have to spell it backwards? Chandler: All right, FERWDG. Sorry, no. Ford: Hold it! Those are the first eight letters of the first eight books of the Bhagavad Gita! Decker: Of course it is. And in the eighth chapter of the eighth book, "Go to the town of Gezerial, to the city of Mekito, and find Boogenhagen." Henry: Boogenhagen. That's Flemish for 'unleavened bread.' Decker No no no, that is with two o's; this is one o. It is German for 'youth hostel'. Chandler: There's three in L.A. County. Henry: Oh. Eureka! Decker: How did you not think of that sooner?

    • Chandler: I hate Russians. Henry: Hey, man, what'd they ever do to you? Chandler; Nothing, I just hate 'em. They rolled over on the czars, rolled over on the commies - they're a bunch of sheep.

    • Chandler: Who are these guys? Walker: Most wanted list. Top ten Morlock baddies. Chandler: Wow. Don King. Orin Hatch. Leanne Rhymes--well, that's a given. Gavin McLeod? You're telling me the captain of Love Boat is a Morlock? Walker: That's exactly what I'm telling you.

    • Deacon Jones: If I catch you making contact with those from your former life, I'm gonna bust your head wide open!

    • Deacon Jones: Hi. I'm Deacon Jones, and I'm here to teach you how to whip Evil's ass!

    • Opening Narration: A man torn from his family, murdered in his prime, only to return to Earth, resurrected as an agent of the Almighty Corps. With no magic, no special powers, forbidden from intimate contact, unrecognizable to those from their past lives, Chandler Smythe and Henry McNeil now fight to save lost souls against the minions of darkness. It is a battle of Good versus Evil. G vs E, that's what it is!

    • Deacon Jones: Roses are red, violets are blue. Have sex in the Corps and I'll break your neck!

    • Ye Olde Porn and Comick Shoppe Guy: This particular card is an exact approximation of the earliest known death-cards of a Satanic sect of the ancient Incas. A very rare approximation. Henry: Do you sell a lot of them? YOPaCSG: If you consider 1.4 decks every five business days a lot of them. Which it is, as a matter of fact.

    Notes (6)

    • After the episode ends, outtakes are included of a musical number (complete with mobile disco-glitterball) to the tune of the mythical song "Candy Thighs", between Henry and Ezmerelda. This excised scene was not in the episode proper--but intended, apparently, to appear between when Henry leaves the cockpit and the "sixty-second man" scene.

    • The show makers seem to be big fans of Theresa Russell. Not only do they say that the thinly disguised "Reesa Tussel" is "only the most incredible actress of her generation", but they hire the real Theresa Russell to play her. Henry also refers enthusiastically to Ressa's performance in White Widow, Theresa played the title character in Black Widow.

    • "Mankind" really did lose two-thirds of his right ear in the ring in 1994.

    • Mankind: Mick Foley was a wrestler in the WWF (now WWE) at the time of this episode's broadcast. USA Network also showed WWF wrestling. He appeared as "Mankind" and his persona (the costume, moves, even down to "Mr. Socko") were as shown in this episode.

    • Jolene Blalock and John Billingsley later became regulars on 'Star Trek: Enterprise' together.

    • This was the original pilot for the series, with Virgil rather then Henry intended to be Chandler's partner. For whatever reasons they decided to go with Henry instead, so they eventually decided to recycle the footage and treat it as a flashback in this episode.

    Trivia (1)

    • It would be impossible for Chandler to be on a moving plane that flew on after the other two jumped, then searched the plane for a third parachute, had his dream, and then found a parachute to land within a few yards of them.

    Allusions (5)

    • Walker: Wanted on the Holodeck... Walker makes a fairly mysterious reference to Ford's office to the rest & relaxation device from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    • Movie Posters The episode movies I Know Who You Are and I Saw What You Did Last Winter and I Yet Again Know Who You Are and I Saw What You Did Last Winter IV (and "V") -- complete with movie poster -- refer to the successful movie franchise begun by I Know What You Did Last Summer. Later in the episode, "Todd Charleston," the movie producer, is revealed to also be creator of Dunbar's Lake (a thinly-veiled Dawson's Creek). "Todd Charleston" is then a reference to Kevin Williamson, creator of Dawson's Creek and writer of I Know What You Did Last Summer.

    • Rap Music Video Contains a couple of allusions - the rapper name, "Poopy Dog Pud" is a riff on "Snoop Doggy Dog", and the director name, "A. Smithee" is a reference to the mythical "worst director ever", a pseudonym used by directors who want to take their name off a picture.

    • Testicules: Every day, in every way, I am becoming a better professional wrestler. Testicules' mantra is a takeoff of the mantra from The Power of Positive Thinking (1952) by Norman Vincent Peale, which goes, "every day, in every way, I am becoming better and better".

    • Title A nod to a few detective/noir titles: Dial 'M' For Murder, the classic Grace Kelly film, and 'A' Is For Alibi, the first of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone/Alphabet mysteries, are two examples.
