  • I love Mouse but great acting all around!

    9.0
    I just love Mouse and this episode shines mostly because of him but I can't get away with out saying that the others did a great job as well. Father and Vincent in the cave in was a very interesting scene. We see it mostly from Vincent's point of view during that time but Father's story was nice. Mouse has his flaws of course but is shown that hes is a very vital member of the tunnel community. James Avery's interaction with him was quite striking. Meek Mouse overcomes the gruffness of James' character and shows we should trust in him even if he is a little absent minded. I think this is also the first time we see the bond between Vincent and Catherine is not only one way. Cathy seems to sense the danger Vincent is in as she can hear the banging of pick axes being used to rescue Father and Vincent.moreless

    • Father: Mouse...Catherine... I have no words to thank you...
      Vincent: Catherine...
      Catherine: I have never been so frightened.
      Vincent: Your courage saved our lives.
      Catherine: I felt like I was losing the best part of myself... I would have done anything... It wasn't courage, Vincent, it was love.

    • Winslow: Only Mouse I know with nine lives.

    • Mouse: (with explosives) He's my friend too, Catherine. If you die, he will kill me anyway. Go now.

    • Father: The colors. I think I miss colors most of all. They've even begun to fade from my mind's eye...I wish you could have seen the blue of the Pacific under a summer sun...the green of the grass at Ebbott's field. The fall leaves blazing orange and yellow in Vermont.
      Vincent: But I have seen them all, Father. No child ever had a better guide. Your words painted pictures that I will never forget. You took me around the world. Twain's Mississippi. Kipling's India. Jack London's Klondike. You made them come alive for me...there aren't many places left to go...

    • Father: Promise me you will keep our dream alive.
      Vincent: I promise.
      Father: It won't be without sacrifice...

    • Father: Our world must continue. A lot of good and trusting people depend on this place. It's all they have.
      Vincent: Mine is not the only voice.
      Father: It's the truest, and the strongest.

    • Vincent: Our bond is stronger and deeper than either of us can begin to imagine.
      Father: As if both your...destinies were inextricably linked.
      Vincent: Yes.
      Father: As if your hearts in their search for union could transcend time and space, circumvent the laws of physics and probability.
      Vincent: Yes.
      Father: Vincent, I understand more than you think about your Catherine... about your bond.

    • Father: All right... if the head injury were very severe, I wouldn't be lucid. And I am lucid... aren't I?
      Vincent: So far.
      Father: So far? Well, in this case, I will recite from Virgil on the hour...just to make sure.
      Vincent: Then I'll be asleep.

    • Elliot: (to Catherine) Maybe in your life, your choices have always been black and white... but in mine they are always gray.

    • Catherine: Someone there?
      Mouse: Mouse. Who...?
      Catherine: My name is Catherine. I was looking for Vincent, I...
      Mouse: Catherine? Vincent's Catherine?

    • Mouse: Everyone takes things from Uptop... that is what Uptop is there for.
