  • One of Eve Plumb's shining moments in her career.

    Eve Plumb was the main focus of this particular episode in which she plays, Elizebeth, a terminally ill woman who will die after her baby Liza is born.

    Roark grants her wish to image her baby's future and in an incredibly enduring moment, helps her grown up daughter, wonderfully played by Alison Arngrim, overcome a dangerous future.

    Probably one of the most well-acted episodes of Fantasy Island, both Eve and Alison probably played their best roles ever outside of Jan Brady and Nellie Olson.

    The chemistry was remarkably believable and tender, and although it ends bittersweet, Roark's genuine acknowledgement of Elizabeth Blake's sacrifice definitely was a teary conclusion to one outstanding episode.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Conversation between Patrick O'Herlihy & Kermit Dobbs.
      Patrick: Oh well now have yourself a happy day sir. A question, this pen would you say it's a bit of an affectation?
      Kermit: Not if your a poet.
      Patrick: A poet you say, you're a discerning man, yesterday an artist today a poet. The world is a wonderful place for an Irishman. Come lad come and share a sip of the Sansou with Patrick O'Herlihy himself, at your service. Ah it's bracing isn't it. Have you ever noticed laddie that a jug of wine divides itself into parts, rather like a man's own mind ya know. You sip it down to the shoulder very serious conversation, but about an inch more then comes in sad and sometimes sweet memories. But an inch more down that's when you get the thoughts of old and satisfactory loves.
      Kermit: Ya know that's what I wanted to talk to you about, that love part.

    • Elizabeth Blake: Oh Mr. Roarke, come in.
      Mr. Roarke: Thank you, you look lovely Mrs. Blake. Are you ready to begin your fantasy?
      Elizabeth Blake: Yes but I must admit to look into the future to see a time after my own death, it's frightening as well as exciting. I hope I can deal with it.
      Mr. Roarke: I'm sure you can, the essential thing to remember is that you are an observer. No one will be able to see you or hear you.
      Elizabeth Blake: I understand.
