    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The Hewgite newsletter is dated 2040.9.14 and reads
        The Employee of the
        First Half of the Year
        Ms. Linna Yamazaki
        At the terrace. No. 1 Sales Section

      • During the explanation of rogue boomers early in the episode, a display on the screen shows the word VOOMER as an acronym for VOodoo Organic Metal Extention Resource.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • (Sylia talks about the new hard suits.)
        Priss: The only thing I want to hear is that they won't go rogue, Sylia.
        Sylia: It's not that simple. In a very real sense, it all depends on your strength and state of mind.
        Priss: Are you quoting psych text or fortune cookies?
        Sylia: It did sound that way.

      • Leon: Daley Wong, remember your family and the farm!
        Daley: I joined the ADP to get away from them!

      • Nene: Oh, I'd kill for my hardsuit right now.
        Nick: Your what?
        Nene: Uh, I said I wish I had something hard to shoot right now!

      • Nene: Are you out of your mind, Leo-Peo?
        Leon: If this situation wasn't so serious, I'd spank her for that one.
        Daley: She only does that because she thinks of you as the brother she never had.
        Leon: Let's do this thing before it sucks up this car too.
        Daley: Yee ha.

      • (Priss looks at Lina in her new hard suit.)
        Linna: (slyly nudging Priss with her arm) Don't look so prissy. You know that you want one.
        Priss: I see some drawbacks.
        Linna: And just what might those be?
        Priss: Having to shave some strange places.
        (Linna downs down at her stomach area.)
        Linna: Oh my god! I didn't know that was transparent! (points at Macky) When were you going to tell me about that, you little pervert?
        Macky: Oh! Um, actually... (blushes)
        (Priss chuckles.)

      • Nene: Well, you've just never seen me in action, have you? When I walk down the street, the boomers all get out of my way, and if they bug me I just blast 'em with super-powers, then I kick 'em, and hit 'em really hard, just like that, and they go running away. Bye, bye boomers!

      • Leon: It's not as if I'm not glad to see you, Nick, but our APB was for frontline officers.
        Nick: That's right- and I'm a former front line officer.
        Daley: Very former, I think. When you were on the line, weren't we still fighting dinosaurs?

      • Leon: Oh, they're gonna be here all right. It's a chance to do some real damage.
        Daley: How many times must I tell you we're not all still Cro-Magnons?

      • Mason: Any animal which has ceased to evolve as a species is doomed to failure. The human organism has served its purpose by begetting its successor. The future belongs to your kind, not the human race.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The title of this episode, Are You Experienced?, is a reference to a song of the same name sung by Jimi Hendrix.

      • Daley: "How many times must I tell you we're not all still Cro-Magnons?"
        Cro-Magnons were early humans who co-existed with the Neanderthals for a time (until the latter species disappeared). They are the ancestors of modern day humans.
