    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Once again, there were Controllers with Dracon beams all around the Animorphs, but they chose to run as soon as they see a tiger, rather than shoot at it. There were many Controllers on the upper levels they were in no way of harm, but for some reason, they all ran away.

      • Since there were traces of water when Ax demorphed and remorphed, his hand/foot prints should have faded after a few prints. However, they stay wet all the way into the vent.

      • By the books, Seerow's surname is Iskilion-Plaviolovo.

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Ax: Humans have a saying "Home is where your heart is". We Andalites have different hearts, but I know what they mean. I had my family and now I have my new friends. I guess I was never lost, not really. All along I was... home.

      • Ax: From this moment on, all I have, all I know, is yours. I may be an Andalite, but I'm human, too.

      • Ax: I'm sorry about what I said before. We Andalites have no right to think we're superior. Do you know why we have the law of Seerow's Kindness? Prince Seerow was an Andalite who felt sorry for another race. He gave them the secret of space flight. That race was the Yeerks.
        Jake: You mean all the terrible things the Yeerks have done are the Andalites' fault?
        Ax: Yes. Yes. You see now why I couldn't tell you.

      • Jake: So, it's okay to lie to us, but what I don't get is why you lied to your father. You didn't give us the power to morph. Elfangor did.
        Ax: He shouldn't have.
        Jake: Oh, that's right. He broke the Law of Seerow's Kindness.
        Marco: What's that, like interstellar jaywalking or something?
        Ax: I can't tell you. I can't tell you anything. We're not supposed to share anything about ourselves with other races. Especially technology. Elfangor was wrong to...
        Jake: From where I'm standing, what he did is the only thing that kept us from a Yeerk way of life.
        Ax: No race can be trusted with what we know! None. How long have humans been around? A few million years? You are children. You couldn't even be trusted with keeping Elfangor's Herok disk from the Yeerks.

      • Ax: (in a high-pitched voice) This is a wonderful food!

      • Marco's Dad: Tell me Max, are you a man... or a mouse?
        Ax: Well, I've been both actually.

      • Marco's Dad: I use Habañero chilis. The hottest substance known to man.
        Ax: Not as hot as the temperature created during nuclear fusion.

      • Jake: He misses his family. I think we should let him hang out with ours. You know, so he feels like he belongs.
        Marco: Uh, he's pretty weird, Jake.
        Jake: Adults expect teenagers to be weird.

      • Ax: Thank you for taking me to your human entertainment, Prince Jake.

      • Ax: What is 'sci-fi'?
        Marco: Sort of like real life lately.

      • Ax: I did not understand the plot of that story.
        Jake: It's just the preview, Ax.
