Bionic Woman

Season 1 Episode 3


Aired Wednesday 9:00 PM Oct 10, 2007 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • As shown in flashbacks, Sarah's sister died in a car crash remarkably similar to the one that almost killed Jaime, suggesting that Sarah's attack on Will and Jaime in the "Pilot" may have been deliberate copycat attack in revenge.

    • The differences between Jaime and Sarah's bionics shown or referred to in this episode include: Sarah's bionic eye glowing red when in use and the prototypical nature of Sarah's anthrocites. The episode suggests, but stops short of making clear, that Sarah has a bionic ear. She might have therefore lied by omission in the "Pilot" when she failed to mention she had bionic hearing.

    • During the "Pilot" episode Jaime's sister Becca is not allowed to use computers. It seems like an important point, as we're even told that there's a court order stating she can't use computers. But then in this episode Jaime apparently forgot about the court order as she has no problem looking at the family photos Becca has on her computer.

  • Quotes

    • Heaven: (about Sarah Corvus) She's scary.

    • Antonio: So what do you say Sommers? Are you ready to find the animal?
      Jaime: Bring it on, bitch!

    • Jonas: I love you. I honestly do. You're what gives my life meaning. You're the only thing worth living for. Without you, I think I'd die.
      (polygraph results come out)
      Ruth: Amazing. No flutters... nothing. We've gotta find a way to teach this. How do you do it anyway?
      Jonas: I've been married.

    • Heaven: We should get out of here.
      Sarah: Adults...are talking!

    • (Becca passes out at the counter in the kitchen while talking with Jaime and Sarah)
      Sarah: (to Jaime) It's okay, just a little something I put in the tea. Don't worry, she's not dead, yet. As long as you come with me to Anthros. Otherwise I may have to take her out of the picture so you don't feel so torn.
      Jaime: Please don't do this.
      Sarah: I know what it feels like to lose a sister. I killed mine. Oops! It sucks. But I feel like there's a silver lining - you'll lose a sister, but you'll gain more of me. You and I will be even more connected. It'll be fun, we can even wear matching outfits. How do you look in capris?

    • Jaime: Where are you going, Sarah?
      Sarah: I'm going to go lay down on the sidewalk and die.
      Jaime: You don't have to be so dramatic.
      Sarah: Don't I? 'Cause I thought I was just told by the one person who could save my life that she's got better things to do! That feels pretty dramatic to me! Not that I can actually feel anything, but I can intellectually imagine that that feels pretty dramatic.

    • Sarah: You haven't figured out how to disable their GPS yet?
      Jaime: You can do that?
      Sarah: You have to! Those Berkut guys look at you in the shower you know.
      Jaime: Oh my god!
      Sarah: Yeah, and don't even get me started on how objectifying this whole "Bionic Woman" thing is. They don't tell you anything. That's why you and me, we need to stick together, maybe form a union.

    • Sarah: (to Jaime) Rock, paper, scissors for the last guy?

    • Heaven: (to Sarah, about Jaime) Why is her nose bleeding?
      Sarah: Why don't you hang yourself or something?

    • Jaime: (to Heaven) This is Ruth, she's gonna run a few tests on you.
      Heaven: Is she a lesbian?

    • Jaime: Okay you know what? This camera in my eye, it sucks.
      Jonas: It's not a camera, it's...
      Jaime: Total violation of privacy, you know what? I'm gonna call somebody. The Justice Department or, Hillary Clinton. She'll get to the bottom of this.

    • Jaime: (to Jonas) You know where I am?
      Jonas: Fifty million dollars you didn't think we'd throw in a GPS?
