Episode Summary

Two-bit magician Danny Cimoli gets a whole new act when he's hit by a truck and becomes The Immortal Cimoli. Amanda and MecLeod find him in a circus, taking bullets in the heart to the delight of the audience and blissfully unaware he's now part of The Game. MacLeod tries to get Danny into shape when Crusader Damon Case comes to claim his head, but Danny's more interested in achieving "real" immortality -- going down in history as a magician even greater than Houdini.moreless

  • Can Duncan and Amanda help a new Immortal discover what it means to be Immortal.

    A new Immortal takes his act on the road. MacLeod and Amanda must help him realize what it means to be an Immortal. This was only a good episode it never quite lived up to it’s potential. I really liked the idea of Damon Case, an Immortal who sees immortality as a form of religion. Going after Immortals who do not respect their ability. In a lot of episodes I find Amanda funny, is this one I just found her trying. She was the annoying friend who tries to get you to do things you don’t want to. However, I don’t know how the would have filled out the episode without her.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • (At the circus)
      Amanda: How can you not be excited, MacLeod? Just the smell of sawdust, popcorn and cotton candy. This makes me feel like a kid! Oh, isn't it exciting! I mean the sights, the sounds, the carnies!
      Duncan: The wonderful smell of wet fur. Low pay, rotten hours, sleeping in trucks.

    • Danny Cimoli: Sorry, no more autographs, I've got a monster headache.
      Duncan: I don't want an autograph, and that's not a headache. We need to talk about who you are.
      Danny: (laughs) Like the poster says, I'm The Immortal Cimoli!
      Duncan: Ah, The Immortal Cimoli!
      Amanda: He's got that part figured out.
      Duncan: Listen to me. That headache that you got, all of us get it. It's how we know another one of us is around.
      Danny: Ah... look, Mister, I don't know what you're talking about...
      Duncan: ... you died recently, a robbery or an accident or something? But you didn't stay dead, did you?
      Danny: How did you know?
      Duncan: Because it happened to me. Four hundred years ago.
      Amanda: We should talk.

    • Danny: Ever since the truck hit me, I've thought, this can't last, one day it's going to end, bang, I won't get up. But if it lasts forever, I can do any trick. Anything, and I won't die! I'll be bigger than Houdini.
      Duncan: Sit down. Sit down! This isn't some trick for some magic act!

    • (in bed together)
      Amanda: MacLeod, you awake? What are you thinking about?
      Duncan: Umm, Danny.
      Amanda: Must be losing my touch.
      Duncan: No, you're not losing your touch!
      (They snuggle)
      Duncan: What are you thinking about?
      Amanda: Moscow.
      Duncan: I must be losing my touch.

    • Danny: The hell with the Rules, and the hell with the Game. I want out.
      Amanda: Sorry, Danny, but that's not an option.

    • Duncan: Houdini was a friend of mine, and you, Danny, are no Houdini.
