    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Vale: (for his video diary) And so, our adventure ends. If there's one thing we've learned, it's that when you're out of your element and you're forced to rely on basic human instincts for survival, you can turn into a dick.

      • Sione's Spirit: The others are slowing you down, John.
        Sione: You're just an elusive!
        Sione's Spirit: I'm you, John, don't fight it! Only the wrong survive!
        Sione: Strong, John! The word is strong!

      • Joost: (when the boys go missing) If only this ridiculous country had some wild animals so their lives would be in danger! Where are the lions, where are the wildebeest?

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (6)

      • When Mack is voted out of the tribe, the ceremony is very reminiscent of the TV show Survivor.

      • Mack: All my life I've relied on the kindness of strangers!

        This is a nod to the Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire.

      • The movie that Sione tells the boys about, where a rugby team crashed on a mountain and had to eat the casualties in order to survive is called Alive.

      • Valea: (high on marijuana) That's why I was really mad at those two old guys, 'cause I thought Fozzie Bear was funny!

        Valea is referring to Statler and Waldorf, the two hecklers of The Muppet Show.

      • Mack: Excuse me, Mr Man, but who made you Lord of the Flies?!

        Mack is referring to the classic novel by William Golding, in which a group of school boys are lost on a desert island, and they turn into savages in their bid for survival.

      • Ricks: I wouldn't care if they were Lost in Space!
        Lost in Space began as a 60s TV show, which followed the Robinson family as they tried to find their way back to Earth when their space ship flies into unknown space by mistake. The show was later remade into a movie in 1998.
