  • Character deaths, Cain and Able and a haunting rendition of 'Donald where's yer troosers' make amongst other things, this one of the best episodes of the series

  • It is sad, how Derek was retired so meaninglessly. Too many things happen too quickly. I hope that last episode will deliver.

  • Quotes (15)

    • Derek: My brother buried out there, I thought … that counted for something between us. Sarah: Well, John counts for more - and you keep too many secrets for my tastes. Derek: Sorry about Charley John: (sighs) Well, everybody dies for me, right?

    • Savannah: (referring to her teacher) She said bad things about John Henry. Weaver: What did she say? Savannah: She said if you talk to somebody on the computer, they could come to your house and hurt you. Weaver: John Henry would never hurt you. But there are some people who wouldn't understand him, and people are afraid of things they don't understand. Savannah: If they knew him, they'd like him. Weaver: That may be, but for now, I don't want you to talk to anyone about him. Is that clear?

    • John Henry: Do you think my brother looks like me? Ellison: John Henry, wherever your brother might be, he's a … computer. He doesn't look like anyone. He certainly doesn't have your face. John Henry: I know that, Mr. Ellison. I simply meant, I wonder how similar his data is to my data. I wonder if we share the same thoughts. Ellison: I have no idea, but … I imagine … you're unique. John Henry: Yes, I am unique. But we may still reach many of the same conclusions given similar data sets. Ellison: You may think alike. John Henry: I'd like to know if we do. The human brain is an amazing computer. Its raw clock speed is 20 billion calculations per second. Its storage is functionally infinite. But it's flawed. Ellison: How is that? John Henry: There's nowhere to download it when you die.

    • John Henry: I need to know what my brother is thinking, Mr. Ellison. I need to know what he plans to do. I don't wanna die again.

    • Ellison: Did Sarah Connor kill those guards?
      John Henry: No.
      Ellison: Then who was she shootin' at?
      John Henry: (shows picture of Terminator) Him ... We should tell Ms. Weaver.
      Ellison: No. I don't think we should tell anyone.
      John Henry: Mr. Ellison ... you're asking me to keep a secret. You tell me it's wrong to lie yet you keep doing it.
      Ellison: I know what I said, John Henry, but in this case a lie might save someone.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When Derrek is buried, the marker says 2009. At the beginning of the season it was still the year 2007. Not enough time has passed for it to be 2009. It could only be 2008.
