    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Benny's map of the dive site shows the sea floor and the sub being about 37-50 below the surface. Revy's beacon is a frowning red face, while Rock's beacon is a smiley green face.

      • Revy reveals that she is Chinese in this episode.

      • The episode does not explain how Revy and Rock were able to breathe inside the sub. Didn't all the crew members die ages ago from the lack of oxygen?

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Revy: There's nothing worse than being treated like a prostitute by your companions.

      • Revy: Despair is like the last stages of cancer. You've got nothing left to lose.

      • Benny: What should we do, Dutch?
        Dutch: There's nothing we can do. They still have TOWs. It bugs me to say so, but we'll wait for our chance like a snake. If you want, you can pray while you shit. That's all we can do now.

      • Revy: Lets turn this Nazi party into a bloody party!

      • Revy: The only ones that knock on a door in a place like this [the sunken submarine] are ghosts or villains. And ghosts don't exist in this world, so what's left is just troublemakers. (loads her gun and smiles)

      • Dutch: When you try and live it up by raising your useless self up on a podium, you end up with a march-loving idiot. It's a formula that's all over the place. What do you think, as a white man?
        Benny: That kind of machismo doesn't agree with me. Besides, I'm Jewish. "Fuck the Nazis" was my creed.
        Dutch: Oh yeah, I forgot.

      • Revy: Dying without air just feels like dying without air. How strangers die is just how strangers die.
