  • Sad tribute to Jon-Erik Hexum

    6.4
    Richard Anderson, who has one heck of a powerful voice

    Reads a poem in memory of fallen star Jon-Erik Hexum

    Who accidentally killed himself with a gun. Sadly though they spelled his name Jon-Eric instead of the Norweigan name that he goes by.

    Antony Hamilton does his best as Jon-Erik's replacement but nothig could hold a candle to Jon-Erik.

    What ifs have been if Jon-Erik didn't have a gun, he would had gone onto a wonderful and blossoming career in movies and tv.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • During the original airing of the episode, Richard Anderson reads a poem about Jon-Erik Hexum. The poem also scrolls on the screen and this is followed by a picture of Jon-Erik with 1975-1984. Here is the poem:

      When a star dies its light
      Continues to shine across
      The universe for millenniums
      Jon-Erik Hexum died in
      October of this year…
      But the lives he touched
      Will continue to be brightened
      By his light… Forever…
      …and ever……

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Jack: (about Dani and her models) They are beautiful, but what's the point?
      Henry: They are distracting; distracting enough for you to manoeuvre a tank through a keyhole.

    • Dani: I didn't see you pulling back on any of your bets.
      Jack: Well, you didn't see what I started with, love. I won $1,000 so I was playing with their money. I couldn't lose.
      Dani: Neither could I; I was playing with Henry's money.

    • Jack: Henry said you were strong-willed and I thought the hike would be the perfect workout to get you broken in.
      Dani: Broken in!? Who do you think you're dealing with, some horse off your ranch in kangarooville?
      Jack: Well, actually, we raise sheep, so if you want to make some sort of comparison....
      Dani: I don't!

    • Jack: I'd assumed Henry'd told you I work alone.
      Dani: Oh, I can see why. You have the personality of a corkscrew!

    • Henry: How are you getting on with our friend, Jack Stryker?
      Dani: Well, let's see, he's arrogant, selfish, self-centred, spoilt, stubborn, opinionated, a chauvinist, difficult...
      Henry: (hurriedly) Danielle, I gotta run. (He hangs up)
      Dani: Henry, you're so rude!

    • (After Jack's first fashion show)
      Dani: I thought you were great at that.
      Jack: I'd rather gargle napalm!
      Lady Abigail: Really? I think you look splendid in that outfit. Of course, I think you'd look even more splendid without it!
