Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Continuity: When Blake discovers the body of the guard in the rocket silo, there is a pool of blood to the guard's left. After Provine shoots at him, there is a second pool above the guard's head.

    • Mistake: Avon and Grant cut the detonator from a block of ice. When they remove it, there's not a trace of ice or water anywhere on it.

    • Mistake: The solid block of ice that the detonator is buried in wobbles as Avon hits it with a pick-axe.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Grant: What happened then?
      Avon: There were patrols out everywhere looking for us. I was late to the rendezvous. And then the man from whom I was buying the visas increased the price. He wanted ten times what we had agreed. He said he could get even more if he turned me in and collected the Federation reward.
      Grant: You should have killed him.
      Avon: I did.

    • Vila: You're quite sure you need me?
      Blake: Certain.
      Avon: Doesn't it make you feel good to be wanted?
      Vila: I've been a wanted man all my life. What I need now is to be unwanted.

    • Blake: All right, Avon, get kitted up. You too, Vila.
      Vila: Good. Terrific. I'm really looking forward to this. Danger, excitement, sudden death. I can't wait.
      Blake: What's the matter with you, don't you ever give up?

    • Avon: It would be stupid to be shot up by our own allies.
      Vila: Not only stupid. Painful.

    • Blake: (tries to open a door) It's locked.
      Vila: Allow me. (opens it) You see, the old magic's still there.
      Avon: The old ego, too.

    • Del Grant: You used the visa and got out of the city. You left her there.
      Avon: That's right. But that was a week later. Anna was already dead.
      Del Grant: You're lying. You left the city the same day, before the Federation found Anna. You could have got her out.
      Avon: No. She came looking for me, the patrols found her. It was only after we got word that she was dead that I left.
      Del Grant: You expect me to believe that?
      Avon: Not particularly. But it happens to be the truth. If there had ever been a time when I could have given my own life to save her, I would have done it. The only grain of consolation that I have is that Anna knew that.
