    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Revealing Mistake: When Kaine lays his sovereign on the metal console, a close-up shows the grain of the wooden prop.

      • Revealing Mistake: The ice walls are composed of sheets of polythene, which occasionally billow. The most notable incident is when Ace and Mel are running from Kane.

      • The ending of this episode, although a literal "cliffhanger," makes no sense on screen. It is (more or less) explained in the author's novelization of his own work.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Kaine: You stupid girl. Think it's that easy to walk away from me?
        Ace: Do you feel like arguing with a can of deodorant that registers nine on the Richter Scale?

      • Kaine [ to Belazs ]: When you first came here, you had nothing. You were willing enough to take my payment then. But now you want to leave. Perhaps you have memories of a home you can return to. Perhaps I should have put you into cryo-sleep along with all the others, and erased your memories. Perhaps you need a reminding. As long as you bear my mark, I own you.

      • Glitz [ about his map ]: It comes from an unimpeachable source.
        Ace: What's that then?
        Glitz: That means it is beyond reproach or question.
        Ace: I know what 'unimpeachable' means, bird bath. But what makes you so certain this map's pedigrees is 24 carat?
        Glitz: Because I acquired it from a man of character and distinction.
        Mel: How?
        Glitz: I won it in a… chess match.

    • NOTES (6)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Nosferatu: The name of Glitz's ship is taken from the 1922 classic horror film Nosferatu, Eine Symphonie Des Grauens. This also foreshadows Kane's death, which will be similar to Count Orlok's.
