Episode Summary

EDIT
Deep in My Heart is a Song
AIRED:
The 'New' Michael Wiseman suddenly goes into a catatonic state for no apparent reason, just before a general arrives to see if the project is going well and is still worth funding. In other words at the worst time possible! Dr. Morris can discover no medical reason for Michael's condition and is becoming extremely worried; not even Michael's original medical records reveal anything that could be helpful. Meanwhile we see flashbacks to Michael's original life and see the same thing happen to him then. Not wanting to worry Lisa he doesn't go to his usual doctor and keeps it a secret. With General Irving threatening to either pull the plug on the project or put a new brain in 'the' body Dr. Morris is running out of time to save Michael.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Several times throughout the episode when the original Michael is playing on the piano, close-captioning reads that he is playing "Chopsticks," but the actual piece is "Heart and Soul."

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Dr. Theo: Mr. Wiseman, are you asleep?
        Michael: Oh yeah, out like a light. Must be the complete lack of stimulation. Something about never being allowed to leave this place, never being alone, at the end of the day, when my head hits the pillow, and all I wanna do is...die. Oh wait, I already did that. You see that? All work and no play makes Michael a very dull boy.

      • Medical Aid: I don't know. I think he's already brain dead.
        (Dr. Morris pushes him back against a wall)
        Dr. Theo: Now you listen to me. There's a person there. And I'm not sure, but I'm betting and hoping that person can hear us. And the last thing he needs right now, the very last thing he needs, is to hear you give up on him. Do I make myself clear?

      • General Irving: So, what's our next move?
        Dr. Theo: Our next move? Well, clearly we need to continue our diagnostic panels. And I know this must seem endless, but every time we can eliminate a possible systemic basis we actually narrow the locus of the actual probably cause.
        General Irving: Come now, doctor. I think the probably cause is fairly obvious. Or for that matter, the most expedient and cost effective solution is fairly obvious as well.
        Dr. Theo: I'm sorry?
        General Irving: Clearly, doctor, we need a new brain.

      • Dr. Theo: (to a catatonic Michael) You okay? I keep thinking you can hear me. They're coming you know. The microwave signals in my cell phone will only jam the homing device for so long. They'll find us...then they'll kill us. And the worst part about that, I'll never know. Is it something in you? Or something I did? Wouldn't it be funny, Mr. Wiseman, if you knew? If you knew and you couldn't tell me?

      • Dr. Theo: Where do you want to go, Mr. Wiseman? Most of us poor pathetic souls only have to die once. Since you have to go through it a second time, you get to choose. Where do you want to die?...You wanna go home.

      • (Dr. Morris has brought the catatonic Michael to the Wiseman house)
        Dr. Theo: Here we are. And you could care less. I am truly a fool. And you know? Maybe coming here's not about you at all.
        (chopper circles overhead, and Dr. Morris turns to talk to Michael)
        Dr. Theo: Mr. Wiseman, I need to leave you here for a moment. I don't know how long we have, but it occurs to me, if I don't tell you wife who you are and what you've become, she'll never know. And she ought to know. Don't you think?

      • Lisa: Would you excuse us, please? I have to talk to your father.
        Heather: It's okay. I'm not ten.
        Lisa: Do you want to live to be twenty?

      • Michael: A scientist works from sun to sun, but his lab rat's work is never done.

      • Michael: Something is amiss. I don't smell bacon. Now, isn't there a law in the state of New York where it can't be called breakfast unless there's bacon or sausage or some sort of fried meat?
