  • Much better episode than last week

    I gave this episode a 10 to bring up the average from 5.6, which is ridiculous, it's around 8/10, much better plot than last week, episode was released online sunday, maybe it aired early in canada.

    Jessica finds out something she's not supposed to, her mother sends chance to rescue her, but this time the sheriff/cops are corrupt and they all want jessica dead. Since everyone in the town knows each other, Chance has to impersonate someone from the town who's on holiday.

    Jessica character was hot, should have kept her around but just like most of the women on this show they don't stick around.moreless
  • Tonight's lessons boys and girls?...

    1) If it walks like a Forestry guy, and talks like a Forestry guy and you end up waking up to a spinning room? probably wasn't a Forestry guy.

    2) If you have a mother who sends the "Incredible Hunk" to the wilds of Alaska to rescue you, hang on to her!

    3) If everyone is jumping off cliffs into raging rivers, is that any reason for you to jump too? It is if sharing body heat with the "Incredible Hunk" is the net result!

    4) If you are the bad guy in a little SUV and are trying to chase down the good guys who are driving something from "Megastructures", it's a safe bet that you should assume you will die in spectacular style and with a Mega Boom...

    5) If you are thinking that the little guy looks like a nerd and you can take him; think again. And don't get into a car with him. Or any of his friends...

    6) If an almost complete stranger who happens to be the "Incredible Hunk" offers you a cheque in a large sum for your least offer to take him with you for crying out loud! Remember the body heat..???!!!


Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The SUV that pulls up after Dr. Shaw is forced off the road, and Chance's Camaro, both have the number plate 810 ESB.

    • Hector Johnson's character, Big Mike, is mislisted as "Monolith" in the end credits.

    • Trivia: According to the date on Banneker's check, the last day of this episode takes place in February 2010.

    • When Chance and Jessica jump clear and Chance fires the flare gun, he's barely 20 feet behind Duke and the vehicle. The camera then cuts to a rear shot of the explosion from much further than 20' back, and Chance is nowhere in sight. Also, despite the fact that the truck was moving at some 5 to 10 miles per hour in the first shot, it instantly comes to a stop when the explosion occurs and the camera cuts to the rear shot.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Winston: Hey! You remember what I said about that place. They don't like strangers. So don't go up there screwing around or nothing. Just blend in and keep a low profile.
      Chance: Hey... it's me.
      Winston: Yeah.

    • Jessica: So what are you, a cop?
      Chance: Not exactly. Well, not at all, really.

    • Jessica: A mercenary with a heart of gold?
      Chance: I prefer death-retardant specialist.

    • Jessica: Is there a plan for that?
      Chance: Yes, there is. Drive down to the marina, borrow a fishing boat, and sort this out on the mainland.
      Jessica: I don't mind to sound unappreciative, but is there any way that plan works without anyone else getting killed?
      Chance: Ideally.

    • Jessica: Okay, so we just--we just make them think that we jumped.
      Chance: Yeah.
      Jessica: Yeah, okay, how?
      Chance: By jumping.
      Jessica: What? Are you insane? We're never gonna make that!
      Chance: No, I mean, probably. Definitely.

    • Winston: Where's the guy? (Guerrero shows him the doctor in the trunk) What is wrong with you?
      Guerrero: What? Tried asking him nicely.

    • Chance: Who do we know that can get a plane to the ground within four hours?
      Winston: Four hours notice to get you out of a hot zone with a professional kill squad shooting at you? Nobody you'd want to...
      Chance: What about that guy from Seattle, Fred something?
      Winston: Frank. Deceased.
      Chance: Harris from Calgary?
      Winston: Also deceased.
      Chance: What about that flight instructor from Coeur D'Alene?
      Winston: The one with the glass eye?
      Chance: Yeah.
      Winston: He's too far away. And, you know, dead.

    • Winston: You know this person?
      Guerrero: Yeah, he's kind of a shark. No real code. A real sleazebag.
      Winston: I'm sorry. You said he's a real sleazebag?
      Guerrero: Yeah.
      Winston: Oh, got you.

    • (inspecting Christopher's back)
      Jessica: What is this? Is this bullet wounds?
      Chance: Yeah.
      Jessica: This one looks like barbed wire.
      Chance: No. No, wait. Yes. Sarajevo.
      Jessica: I... I don't even know what this one is.
      Chance: Oh, that's a Masai Ngulu blade.
      Jessica: Seriously?
