FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Equipment Visible: In the scene just after Sarah is captured by Condo, the shadow of the boom mike appears on the Doctor's chest as he talks to Maren.

    • Why does Solon bother with building "Chop Suey"? If he's waiting for a humanoid to come to Karn so he can take its head, why not plan to take its whole body (or as much as is salvageable) and simply replace its brain with that of Morbius?

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Condo: Master not hurt girl.
      Solon: Ah, I misjudged you all this time, Condo. Under that brutish exterior there lurks a tender compassionate nature.
      Condo: Condo like girl.
      Solon: Ah, he's such a romantic.
      Sarah Jane: You think you're a bundle of laughs, don't you?

    • The Doctor [about the Elixir]: The impossible dream of a thousand alchemists, dripping like tea from an urn.

    • Solon: You'll get a new head, Morbius. The crowning irony.
      Morbius: Fool!
      Solon: Sorry – the pun was irresistible.

    • Morbius: Trapped like this, like a sponge beneath the sea. Yet even a sponge has more life than I. Can you understand a thousandth of my agony? I, Morbius, who once led the High Council of the Time Lords, and dreamed the greatest dreams in history, now reduced to this - to the condition where I envy a vegetable.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Solon: When I said I could create life, they laughed at me, mocked me!
      This speech (and Solon's character) is a reference to the character Victor Frankenstein, from the Mary Shelley novel Frankenstein (1818).
