    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Goof: During the firefight on the Maru, Beka is shown beginning to climb up a ladder, then the scene cuts to her finishing her climb downwards off the ladder.

      • Harper: Yes, oh Glorious-Creation-Of-Mine-With-The-World's-Crappiest-Timing?

        At the time Harper says the above, it is actually Andromeda's AI speaking to Harper, NOT Rommie, who he did create.

    • QUOTES (19)

      • Rommie: (when Harper makes a catty remark about Beka and Able's relationship) Beka's a big girl.
        Tyr: Age is irrelevant.
        Harper: Yeah! And besides, even the, ahem, most 'experienced pilots' are vulnerable to blindspots. And trust me, Beka's had more than her fair share of fender benders.
        Rommie: At least she's gotten behind the wheel.
        Harper: All right, look. If you're gonna slam my love life, of which you refuse to take part, don't hide behind some cheesy metaphor, okay?

      • Able: Before you indict Beka, I should tell you that although I've made a career out of remodeling the truth into convenient shapes while taking possession of commodities legally belonging to others...
        Tyr: (interrupting) Nietzscheans call those 'liars' and 'thieves'.

      • (Beka and Able walk out of command)
        Harper: Well, that sucks. I guess that's why they say space is a vacuum.
        Rommie: No. They say space is a vacuum... (Tyr joins in) ...because space is a vacuum.

      • Harper: We're in big trouble boss, with the capital word SCREWED!

      • Harper: A world of polygraphs? I get paranoid just thinking about it!

      • Harper: Did you know your name is Greek for Harp? Well no-one plays the Harp better than the Harper.

      • Andromeda (interrupting Harper being alone with Lyra): Harper?
        Harper: Yes, oh Glorious-Creation-Of-Mine-With-The-World's-Crappiest-Timing?

      • Harper: Wait a minute...that can't be right. But then, that would mean that I, Boy Genius, am wrong.
        Lyra: Sorry for interrupting. Are you really a genius?
        Harper: Yes.

      • Beka: How about being my friend and showing a little faith in my judgement.
        Trance: Even if I think you're making a big mistake and we're all going to have to pay that price right along with you?
        Beka: Maybe that's what loyalty is.

      • Beka: Able's an old friend, he may be all I have left of the good old days.
        Trance: Let's talk about what happened last time we encountered someone from the good old days.
        Beka: Let's not.

      • Able: More importantly, I'm free to love Beka Valentine.
        (Beka smiles, then punches Able in the nose, knocking him down)
        Harper: Ah, don't take it personally, pal, it's how she loves everyone. Now usually at this point I beg for mercy, but if I were you, I'd run like hell.
        Dylan: Mr. Harper, I think you and I should run like hell.
        (Dylan and Harper run away from Beka)

      • Beka: I think I'm in love with Able. I just never imagined he'd feel the same way.
        Tyr: Then your imagination hasn't done you justice.

      • Able: I see you've learned a lot from Captain Hunt.
        Beka: Unfortunately, he can't seem to teach me anything in the area I'm weakest. (points a gun at Able) What the HELL are you?

      • Beka: He acts just like him. He smells just like him.
        Harper: Oh yeah? What else does he do just like him?
        Beka: (giving him an evil stare) No one appreciates your level of genius more than I do, Harper, but you just made a mistake.

      • Harper: The point is, you would do anything to protect a friend. So would I, even if it's from herself.

      • Able: Please tell me that you've always looked at me as a friend, and not a father figure, right? 'Cause that would make this wrong on so many levels.

      • Able: You must be the engineer.
        Harper: Why? Because I'm the short guy with the sense of humour? The wry wit? 'Cause I'm so freaking amiable with the careless demeanor, is that it?
        Able: Well. And the tools.
        Harper: Oh...Right.

      • Beka: I made a promise to keep him safe. That promise is as good as if I made it to any one of you.

      • Any fool can be honest,
        for it is only what he knows.
        A wise man is aware of
        when to share the truth.

        Vedran Empress Yoweri XXIII,
        CY 2932.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Harper: If your plan resembles anything like 'run like hell', I can name that tune in three notes or less.

        This is an allusion a game show Name That Tune where constants have to pick how many notes it will take them to name a song. The point of it being to name a song in as few notes as possible.
