Bionic Woman

Season 1 Episode 4


Aired Wednesday 9:00 PM Oct 17, 2007 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Jaime and Antonio are fighting in the bodega and Jaime kicks Antonio into the wooden shelving unit, it's obvious that it's a stunt double, because he looks significantly different than Isaiah Washington.

    • Goof: In the ventilation system, Jaime stops the huge fan blade and bends it to let her and Antonio pass through. The moment she stops the fan, the motor, or place where the belt connects, is shown to smoke and all the sounds of that fan running cease. Even after Jaime bends the fan, it does not attempt to keep moving, giving the impression that the motor has been disabled. Yet when they go to escape, she bends the fan blade back into its original shape, and the fan starts spinning and is back to its original speed in seconds.

    • Nitpick: Once again Becca mentions using the Internet, even though in the episode "Pilot" Jamie states that Becca has a court order stating she can't use computers connected to the Internet. Jaime apparently forgot about the court order, and is just upset that Becca is meeting up with guys from a chat room.

    • Nitpick: Antonio tells Jaime they are landing on the airstrip in a Gulfstream jet, however the two shots of the plane in the show are definitely NOT a Gulfstream.

    • In this episode it's revealed that Jaime is afraid of flying. The Jaime Sommers of the original The Bionic Woman was a skydiver, meaning she was definitely not afraid of flying.

  • Quotes

    • Antonio: (when Jaime is damaged) You're a machine, don't think about it.
      Jaime: Even if it's not real, it's still attached. I'd like to keep it that way.

    • (While trying to repair Jaime's toe)
      Nathan: I'm going to have to shock that thing into submission. (puts a device over her toe). Now this shouldn't hurt at all. On 3... 1... (presses the button that shocks Jaime's toe).
      Jaime: You suck!

    • Sarah: From you, I want nothing. Kill me or let me go.
      Jonas: You know I tried that once before it didn't work. This time I thought I'd help.

    • Becca: Usually those internet chatroom guys, you know they turn out to be reasonably cool.
      Jaime: Oh my God!
      Becca: (laughs) I'm kidding. God do you think I'm retarded?

    • Sarah: (about Jae) This is my boyfriend. It's an on-again off-again sort of thing, you know how it is. I kill all those people, he shot me in the head. Our friends call us the Bickersons. Isn't that right honey?

    • Ruth: People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
      Sarah: Or have sex without curtains.
