    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Mr. Roarke: I am very curious about the fantasy you requested. Why do you wish to embark into such a painful experience as venturing into the mysterious world of a tortured mind?
        Dr. Griffin: Clinical reasons, call it professional curiosity if you like.
        Mr. Roarke: But you are already one of the most respected people in your profession. Chief therapist at a halfway house for women just released from prison, chairperson for the Governor's appellate committee for parole recommendations. Why is this story so pressing now?
        Dr. Griffin: Because of sixty percent of the young women I treat go back to the same men that corrupted them to being with and they repeat the same mistakes.
        Mr. Roarke: Then you think that by actually experiencing what they do, you will find the answer?
        Dr. Griffin: Oh I know it sounds bizarre.
        Mr. Roarke: And then perhaps as a residual result of course help you understand your own sister.

      • Professor Alan Blair: A stone marker not unlike the sign posts of today and the inscription seems to be in ancient Greek. It says, "Go ye onward seeker after beauty to worship at the temple of Aphrodite is to know the perfection of mortal love." It's a fascinating archaelogical puzzle Mr. Roarke, but my primary interest is in finding the ideal woman I have been seeking for all my life.
        Mr. Roarke: Who better to fit that description than Aphrodite herself, the Goddess of Love and Beauty to the ancient Greeks.

      • Mr. Roarke: (after Lila finishes her sexy dance) Quite an extraordinary performance.
        Tattoo: I'm sorry Boss, but I need a cold shower. (and leaves)
