Season 1 Episode 6


Aired Tuesday 10:00 PM Oct 25, 2006 on CBS



  • Trivia

    • The EMP hit at 9:02, as evidenced by the wall clock, which apparently stopped at this hour.

    • Robert's claim that his computer was a "special" type given him by the government is untruthful. The only way that electronic circuit boards can be protected from the effects of an EMP is to shield with heavy layers of material that would absorb the radiation. This is the likely explanation of Robert's masonry work in laying a concrete block enclosure in his basement at the end of an earlier episode: he was creating a shielded place for his laptop.

    • On Hawkins' basement map, we get to see where he placed the last three pins he picked up in Episode #2: Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Detroit. No pins yet to identify the city in the Northern Rockies that showed on the Chinese satellite broadcast as being possibly Spokane or Boise.

    • Goof: When Eric, Dale and Jake are going to Mitchell's shelter and Dale tells them about the crashed train full of food, he finishes talking, but when the camera cuts to Eric's expression, you can see Dale talking, but there is no sound. In advance, his face expression changes during shots. Drastically.

    • Two Weeks Later
      This is shown at the bottom of the screen after the title. This confirms that it has been between 3-4 weeks since the bombs.

    • Jake's record on Hawkins computer states that Jake was born on January 21, 1977, In "Pilot" Jake stated that he is 32 years old, if both records are true that would mean that the series would be set in 2009. Unless Jake was lying about his age, which means he would be 29.

    • Screw This Town
      Jake Green '92

      This is carved into the jail cell's bench.

    • The CD that Allison Hawkins shoots is a CD by Vanilla Ice.

    • The Morse code heard over the show's opening title is:

  • Quotes

    • Gail: If you'd have favored your father a little less and your dinky Uncle Dennis a little more, you'd have made a hell of a jockey. Talk to me. I'm tired of listening to my own voice.

    • Mimi: Oh my God, I wish I prayed!

    • Stanley (referring to the stolen pesticides): I can't believe this is what we've come to.
      Mimi: We don't really have a choice, it's every man for himself now.

    • Allison (in reference to Jake): Is he a good man or a bad man?
      Robert: Baby, there is no such thing.

    • Gail: You said you need to harvest today. We're here to help, no strings attached.

    • Skylar: Dale, why are they keeping you here? What did you do?
      Jake: I'm just talking to him.
      Skylar: Well you can't talk to him with out an attorney.
      Jake: I'm not a cop.
      Skylar: I know the machines are down but you have to take this anyway. (Offers credit card)

    • Stanley: Gracie, do you still have those crop pesticides?
      Gracie: Everything I have got left is right there on that shelf.
      Stanley: Thank God, I'm gonna need everything you have got to protect my corn.
      Gracie: Can anyone even eat that corn. What about that rain we had?
      Stanley: No, it's ok, the husks kept it ok from the fallout.

    • Robert: We can not have photos up, it might raise questions about us as a family. I am not in this. Get rid of them!

    • Jake: Any idea of what you're doing?
      Robert: Not a clue!
      Jake: Thanks for your help.
      Robert: This is our home too.

    • Gracie: These are for you. I lost my head Stanley, I'm sorry.
      Stanley: Thank you.

    • Robert: Come on out here. Hey!
      Allison: Are all those cities gone?
      Robert: What do you think?
      Allison: How do you know?
      Robert: I don't for sure (sighs) Okay. Those are the cities I heard about through the HAM radio, and the satellite feed before the EMP.
      Allison: How come your laptop isn't fried like everyone else's?
      Robert: It's rubberized. It is built to withstand an EMP. The, um…the government issues them, baby.
      Allison: So you're some kind of spy? That's why you moved us here. You knew this was going to happen. Why do you have that gun, what's it for?
      Robert: Shooting. And I think it's probably time you learned how. You see the way things are going you may have to defend yourself one day. Do you understand?

    • Jake: If you or anybody comes near my family again, I will kill you.
      Mitchell: (whispering) Now that's the Jake I know. (aloud) Alright, now get up. I'm taking you to go see John.

    • Mary: Eric. The last time I saw you, you said were gonna tell your wife about us and we were gonna to start our life together. That thought has kept me going. That was nearly two weeks ago. I don't know what you're thinking, I don't know if you're ok…
      Eric: I don't know if I'm ok, Mary. I know this is not what I wanted. Mary, I think about you every minute of every day. Man, I wake up in the morning and I want it to be you there so badly. I know, I—I'm still married and I have a wife and I owe her…something. I don't know what to say, Mary, I wish I did but I don't.

    • Johnston: Now look…you know I would like nothing better then to string up the guys who did this, but that's not the way we do things. Last time you got mixed up with Mitch Cafferty, you left town and a boy was dead.
      Jake: I'm not that guy anymore.
      Johnston: Yeah? (removes gun from Jake's waist) Let's just make sure that it stays that way.
      Jake: Look, if I don't take care of him he'll come back.
      Johnston: We've got to do this right.
      Jake: He could be out….
      Johnston: If this family starts breaking the law how are we supposed to enforce it?

    • Mimi: I have a proposition. The hotel I was staying in closed and since you owe the government more than $180,000
      Stanley: No one's heard from the government in weeks.
      Mimi: Consider me the government.
      Stanley: Fine then I still get to call you Uncle Sam. Nice watch.
      Mimi: It's a Rolex.
      Stanley: You got the time?
      Mimi: It's, um….It just stopped working after the pulse, just like everyone else's.
      Stanley: Well, how about I pay you when it starts up again?
      Mimi: You're being an idiot. I am trying to give you a chance to protect your interests.
      Stanley: You're too kind.

    • Darcy: So why you heading off to play cop?
      Robert: Because people are starting to react to the fact that no one is coming to save them. Okay? No one. Because the world we knew does not exist anymore. So if we can't keep order, we will not survive.
      Darcy: Allison give me a minute with your father.
      Allison: Mom, I just--
      Darcy: Now! (Allison walks away) What the hell are you doing scaring our kids about the end of the world Robert?
      Robert: Well, they have to understand what's going on.
      Darcy: You haven't been around in four years. I'm the parent here. I'll decide what they need.

    • Eric: Well, if we're sending missiles they must have figured out who attacked us.
      Jimmy: God Bless America.
      Jake: Could have just decided to take out one of the usual suspects.
      Johnston: Which means there could be more missiles headed in our direction.
      Gail: Well, is this the federal response we've all been waiting for?

    • Episode title: 9:02

      The title of this episode "9:02" is a probable reference to the Oklahoma City bombing. On April 19th, 1995, 9:02 a.m. CST, a bomb exploded in front of the 9-story Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on the north side of downtown. 168 people were killed.

      It´s also the time in which the EMP hit on Jericho. All the clocks stopped at 9:02.
