Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jemma: In ancient times, people believe the heavens were filled with gods and monsters and magical worlds. Then, as time passed, those beliefs faded into myth and folklore. But now we know the stories are true. Other worlds, with names like Asgard, do exist. And beings once revered as gods, like Thor, have returned, leaving us with more questions... an enormous mess to clean up.

    • Fitz: Still, this is definitely the type of a work a monkey could easily do.
      Grant: You're our little monkey.

    • Coulson: You know, it'd be nice if, for once, Thor and his people sent down the God of Cleaning After Yourself. They probably have a magic broom for this kind of thing.

    • Coulson: I can't think of a single time when anything alien in human hands ended well.
      Skye: Wouldn't mind getting my human hands on Thor. He's so dreamy.
      Coulson: Sure, he's handsome, but...
      Melinda: No, he's dreamy.

    • Coulson: A lot of bones. Let's see what we can dig up. See what I did there?

    • Skye: I mean, this guy has lived through all the scary stuff--the Crusades, the Black Death, disco.

    • Coulson: Do you know Thor?
      Elliot: Oh, sure, spent all my days palling around with the future Prince of Asgard. No, I don't know Thor. I was a mason.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Injoke: At the end, Coulson's comment "Did I fall asleep?" and Karine's response, "For a little while," is the same exchange found in another Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse. A brainwiped Doll says the first phrase when waking up, and their handler responds with the second phrase.

    • The episode loosely ties in with the theatrical movie Thor: The Dark World, which premiered on November 8, 2013.

    • International Airdates:
      Australia: November 20, 2013 on Seven
      Latin America: November 20, 2013 on Sony Channel
