  • Quotes

    • Broyles: You floating another government conspiracy theory, Mr. Bishop?
      Peter: You know me. I never miss a chance for a good conspiracy theory.

    • Walter: I'm learning to appreciate cowardice. The Lion had a point.
      Peter: The Lion?
      Walter: The Cowardly Lion.
      Peter: But again, that was just a movie and there's no flying monkeys inside the grocery store.

    • Walter: This boy bears no resemblance at all to a sasquatch. Or a yeti, for that matter.
      Agent Frug: Well, you don't... you don't believe in those creatures?
      Walter: Why shouldn't I? Just because no one has documented flying monkeys or talking lions yet hardly means they don't exist.
      Peter: Agent Frug, my father's a bit of a shock-doc. Don't let him alarm you.

    • Olivia: Walter, were you involved in any military testing in Edina?
      Walter: Not that I recall. I'm sure I'd remember something as exciting as human metamorphosis.

  • Allusions

    • Walter: I'm learning to appreciate cowardice. The Lion had a point.
      Referencing the famous 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, in which the small group of Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow go down the Yellow Brick Road to see the all-powerful Wizard of Oz. The Cowardly Lion is as his name indicates, a coward who is questing to find courage. At the end of the movie, he is given a medal for bravery, thus "proving" that he has obtained what he has been seeking the entire movie.

    • Peter: It's a movie called Deliverance. We saw it together.
      Referencing the 1972 movie Deliverance starring Ned Beatty along with Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, and Ronny Cox. They play four city men who go canoeing down a river in Georgia and run afoul of vicious mountain men.

    • Walter: A friend of mine once wrote that sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
      Referencing Arthur C. Clarke, and his compendium of essays entitled Profiles of the Future (revised, 1973). It is the third of three laws of prediction that Clarke formulated, although he later formulated a fourth.
