Adventure in China

Aired Daily 12:00 AM Aug 23, 1986 on ABC



  • Trivia

    • Notice when Jem comes out of the mineral bath and the holograms fades that Jerrica is fully clothed and not wearing a bathing suit.

    • Although it is credited that Jem and the Holograms sang Something is Missing in My Life, Jerrica is the one actually singing it.

    • By the end of the Misfits' song, the Holograms have somehow managed to change from their concert costumes into street clothes even though the Misfits are still wearing the same dresses they wore in their concert.

    • The Misfits have changed out of their disguises by the time they reach the train, but now they are wearing their standard Misfits outfits instead of their concert dresses.

    • Because of the odd clothes changes, it is very hard to tell how much time has passed in this episode. It's presented as if it takes place in one day, which means that the two fake pairs managed to become part of an art exhibit and reproduced by the millions at a jewelry factory in less than 24 hours.

  • Quotes

    • Jerrica: Kimber, if these earrings were the real thing and not just another copy, I'd contact Synergy and have Jem thank Lin in person. The look on her face when I told her Jem and the Holograms wouldn't be doing the concert was just too much to bare.
      (The Jem Star earrings begin to glow)
      Synergy: What are you talking about, Jerrica? Why shouldn't Jem and the Holograms do the concert?

    • Lin: (To Jerrica) Are you here for the Jem and the Holograms concert? They are my favorite band!

    • Curator: (As Jerrica, Kimber, Aja and Shana hug him) Girls, please. This is highly undignified. But one thing. May I have your autographs.

    • Jerrica: (After swiping another set of the Jem star earring from a display case at the museum) Excuse me. I don't know how to say this. The earring that were in that case belong to me.
      Guard: Oh, then you must be a princess of the Ming Dynasty.

    • Guy: I don't know why you want to see them but here they are.
      Aja: There must be thousands.
      Guy: There are millions.
      Kimber: Millions of them and they're all fakes.

    • Aja: Do we have to listen to the Misfits doing our concert.
      Shana: Yeah, let's get out of here!

    • Pizzazz: Jem and the Holograms have a big follow in China.
      Roxy: So what! We've got fans here, too.
      Pizzazz: Misfats. Oh great.

    • Eric: Roxy. Don't want to see the view?
      Roxy: Who cares about seeing a big wall, right Stormer?
      Stormer: (Quickly looking back to her magazine from the window) Uh, right.

    • Flight Attendant: If you look out your window, you can see the Great Wall of China. It is nearly 4000 miles long and is one of our countries most famous historical structures.

    • Jem: My father gave me a similar pair of earrings once. So I think I know what they mean to you.
