  • Very interesting storyline!

    A lot of intresting developments took palce on this episode of No Ordinary Family. This ranged from the introduction of Jim's brother to Katie's long distance promotion, to absolutely everything that happened with Dr. Dayton.



    The storylines developed nicely, and I thought the relationship with Jim and his brother was certainly a unique one in many ways.



    I really found myself enjoying Daphne's dstoryline, in which she utilises her powers in her new position, and I also thought JJ's role in the episode was good too.



    All up, a very good episoed! A lot to commend about this episode, and I highly recommend it to you! Keep up the great work, guys!moreless

    wow.. this show has a lot of "Holy Cow!" moments but they end up being dismissed like water on a duck. the first of this, is when Daphne lost 3 months of her memory. It was discussed no more than 5 minutes, touch me, remember bits of memory and poof! it's gone. not even the scientist mom was curious on how that happened. and now! katie.. tsk tsk. sure you're blinded by love and all but as a superhero geek you have disgraced us all. so will/joshua/psycho-killer-for-global-tech changed the words and the writings. you SAW it! you read it, you went through it and waited for him to wake up for it. and! a big AND, you are now exposed to the world of the super powered, by this time you should be thinking, "maybe pigs can fly!?" and you just believe, take a look at again. tada! and you believe him. if that was me, i'd be shouting, "how did you do that?" "you changed it you virginity taking freak" "aaahhh! call mr. powell" but nooo. all katie say was, "oops! my bad." wow.. that was weak.moreless

    • Jim: What in the world would possibly possess him to borrow money from a loan shark in the first place? And then to gamble it all away?
      George: Well, a guy with Mike's financial history doesn't really qualify for a bank loan.
      Jim: They say you got to hit bottom in order to change. Maybe this time he'll learn his lesson.
      George: Only lessons Frank Matthews teaches is untraceable bullets and well-hidden bodies.
      Jim: Do you have anything helpful to say? At all?
      George: Not really.

    • Stephanie: Katie, you didn't tell me that.
      Katie: Yeah, well, I was angry with you, and simmering resentment has a way of stepping on good news.

    • Katie: The poor crane operator felt terrible, but I told him not to beat himself up. Even Tony Stark has equipment failure. You know what? I actually shouldn't have said Tony Stark, because once he has the suit on, then he's technically Iron Man...

    • Jim: This guy, Frank Matthews, is gonna kill my brother unless we pay him the whole 150 grand by tomorrow.
      George: So what's the plan?
      Jim: Pay him the whole 150 grand by tomorrow.

    • The Watcher: After all the things I've done. You try and take away the one thing that matters most to me.
      Dr. King: There was a time when your job mattered to you.
      The Watcher: Well, that's over. You and I are done.
      Dr. King:You and I will never be done. We're family.
      The Watcher: Family doesn't hurt each other.
      Dr. King: Families hurt each other all the time, it's, uh... what they do best.
