Brother, Can You Spare a Bomb?

Aired Unknown Apr 19, 2000 on UPN



  • Trivia

    • If the bomb was on a timer that Ramsey and Parker had to defuse, why did the bomb go off in the original time line with a remote trigger when the new time line seemed to imply the remote trigger was a backup?

  • Quotes

      Frank: Oh he has, has he?
      Nate: Must be the medication.

    • Frank: Very devious, Ramsey. I'm impressed
      Nate: Well, I've learned it from you.
      Frank: About time you gave me credit for something.

    • Frank: How'd you know it was the red (wire)?
      Nate: I hate Communists.

    • Nate: What do you even care anyway for, Parker? You think the next guy's going to be worse?
      Frank: He can't be worse – you're a total butthead.
      Nate: Well just drive, Beavis.

    • Nate: You drive that (truck) like you drive the Sphere.

    • Frank: You think Talmadge is going to buy your bogus report?
      Nate: Why not? Everything I've told him has been the truth . . . up until now.

    • Nate: The FBI must have lowered its standards.
      Frank: What standards?

    • Parker: Don't be a bigger idiot than I already think you are.

    • FBI Agent: You're making a big mistake.
