  • Great Script

    This episode is a prime example of great writing and why I love this show. It's a great puzzle. I love watching Hood mind work as he and Rachel sort though the pieces and see how they fit together in order to avoid major ramifications. Tonight it was terrorist attack using chemicals weapons. It was a great twist when after thinking that the subway system was just a test and that the final target was at children's theater. I thought the chase was really intense and I was on the edge of my seat. But a sad as it was I actually laughed when there were no bullets in the leaders gun. It was just pathetic. But an excellent episode especially when you add the Felix factor.moreless
  • Another great episode with very clever plotting and lots of nice touches.

    This was a great episode with very clever plotting and lots of nice touches. Hood and Rachel combined really well to solve the central mystery and Felix Lee added just the right amount of fun. The way the re-enactment was carried out in the subway was particularly good and the final scenes were particularly tense and thrilling. There were several scenes where Hood and Rachel were almost joking with each other which made a pleasant change from their usual extremely serious relationship. Eleventh Hour is turning out to be a slow grower of a show and I find that I am enjoying it more and more as each week goes by.moreless
  • Just excellent

    This episode had the right combination of excitement, drama and humor. It was a great deal!

    Were the kids trying to prove something by killing all those people? The sad thing is, young people like them exist in real life... I thought Hood's experiment was useless, but he had a point.

    Lee... The way this character is developing is very real. Normal. He was feeling the stress this time and the big deal that is being an FBI Agent. He does a great job. And Rachel and Hood made sure he knew it.

    I loved Hood this time. His funny moments were fantastic, as well as joking with Rachel. He was looking out for Rachel too. I think that he tries to take some of the burden she has of taking care of him by making her laugh.

    However, I did not like that Hood was in danger one more time.

    Still, great episode, keep them coming.moreless

    • Rachel: Dumping all of that stuff in the sea it sounds like the recipe for making Godzilla.
      Hood: Yeah. Well, Hedorah.
      Rachel: What?
      Hood: Godzilla was, uh, the product of atomic radiation, Hedorah is the pollution monster.
      Rachel: Oh.
      Hood: You know, Hedorah is Japanese for sludge, same as the syndrome. Salivation, lacrimation ...
      Rachel: Got it.

    • Felix: Excuse me, Agent Young. How am I supposed to know if I'm doing my job well?

    • Leiber: Well, I don't know of any nerve agent that makes a patient explode.

    • Rachel: Shouldn't we have masks on?
      Hood: If you like.
      Rachel: Hood?
      Hood: Look, a friend of mine is a world expert on the Ebola virus. And, they flew in a patient, chartered aircraft, private air strip, whole runway under quarantine. The crew were wearing full body suits. She met them at the airport wearing street clothes and a pair of kitchen gloves. Disease is not the weapon. Fear is the weapon.

    • Rachel: An entire school for Rock musicians? My dad would have an aneurysm. He used to yell at Bon Jovi on the TV.
      Hood: Well, he'd have loved Beethoven. Long hair, dressed like a tramp, liked to throw food, trash furniture.

    • Lee: If it was poison shouldn't a blood test have picked that up?
      Rachel: Tests are for specific things, it's like a Catch-22, you need to have an idea of what you're looking for so you can choose the right test to find it.

    • Hood (speaking to Rachel, while Lieber looks on): Get a hold of Felix. Tell him to collect everything and see if he can find somewhere close by where we can work.

      Lieber: Who is he?
      Rachel: Agent Lee, advance scouting and support.
      Lieber: No, (points to Hood) him.
      Rachel: You know, there is that moment at the beginning of every disaster when it's like a genie flying out of a bottle. You get one chance to grab it by the its neck before it's out of reach and out of control. He's the guy who does that.

    • Lee: So Agent Young, what's the protocol here, am I supposed to turn in my weapon?
      Rachel: You've never done this before?
      Lee: Before today I've never fired a shot outside of the range.
      Rachel: How do you feel?
      Lee: Not exactly sure.
      Rachel: No amount of training can prepare you for pulling the trigger that first time in a real situation. It's a heavy responsibility. You saved a lot of lives today, Felix.

    • Hood: Brave woman.
      Rachel: Yep. Speaking of brave, Agent Lee did a hell of a job today.
      Hood: Yeah, I noticed. Where were you?
      Rachel: Very funny.

    • Felix: My mom puts a piece of rock sulfur in her little Yorkie's water ball. (Rachel and Hood stare at him) People say it keeps the fleas away.
      Hood: Huh.
      Rachel: Hood, what?
      Hood: It's interesting.
      Rachel: Why is that?
      Hood: Felix moves out and his mom gets a Yorkie.

      (an embarrassed Rachel waves at the camera)
      Ashton: You lip-read?
      (Hood shakes his head indicating he can't)

    • (Lee is sticking post-its on to a map)

      Rachel: What do you think, Hood?
      Hood: Yeah, I kinda like the fact that you can stick them on to anything.
      Lee: Right!
      Rachel: About this? (looks at the map)
      Hood: Oh! (clueless) Yeah.

    • Rachel: We don't believe in coincidences, do we?
      Hood: To quote Mr. Ian Fleming, once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, third time is enemy action.
      Rachel: Happenstance? Is that even a word?
