  • Trivia

    • Jaime is reading the Book What Color is your Parachute? when she first meets Pope in the bookstore. It was a parachuting accident in the original Bionic Woman that got Jaime her Bionics in the first place.

    • When Jaime and Ruth walk into the house right before they find the girl, a battle scene from the Battlestar Galactica episode "Exodus, Part 2" is playing. David Eick, who is the Executive Producer of the Bionic Woman, filled the same position on the show Battlestar Galactica.

  • Quotes

    • Jaime: Are you still in love with her?
      Jae: I don't know if love is the word. She killed 14 of our agents and I shot her in the head.
      Jaime: I could see how that experience might stay with a person.

    • Marty: There are no survivors...everyone in the town is dead.

    • Ruth: (yelling) Drop the toothbrush, put your hands on your head. What are you doing here?
      Vivian: (with her mouth full) Can I spit?

    • Ruth: Would you please stop eavesdropping?
      Jaime: Maybe if somebody said something to me for a change.

  • Notes
