    This is a really cool show, in this episode, Michael Wiseman goes back to his old office to get his old friend Roger to drive him to his family. This is a really cool episode. It's a touching episode. It's about a man who gets a second chance in life and realizes what he was missing from his old life. This plot is something that entices many. Everyone wants to be just like Michael Wiseman. He gets a second chance in life as a superhero. this is so cool. this show should have gotten a new season, it's a really cool show.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Roger: Who are you?
      Michael: I'm nobody. You don't want to know.
      Roger: Yes, I do. Once my heart starts beating normally again I would very much like to know what kind of person comes smashing through a 17th-story window, half naked.

    • Senator: We've got to put out an all-points bulletin.
      Dr. Theo: Really, Senator? Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't you just spend $3 billion on this secret weapon? How secret is he going to be after you shellac his face all over the 6:00 news?

    • Michael: Think we can make an exception this once and just let Michael do his business with the other boys in the locker room?
      Dr. Theo: I need a team to run Mr. Wiseman back to the townhouse.
      Michael: Our tax dollars at work.

    • Social Services Worker: Well, perhaps you should think about getting a job. Did you attend college?
      Lisa: Yes, yes, I did. And I have been checking the want ads. Unfortunately, where I live all the good art historian positions are taken.

    • Roger: Wait! What exactly is it you're going to do here? You want to peep?
      Michael: No, no. I want to peek, not peep. With a "k," not a "p."

    • Roger: How do you know that?
      Michael: I know everything.
      Roger: Who are you?
      Michael: I can't tell you that.
      Roger: Why not?
      Michael: Because, once they know you know, you die.

    • Roger: Who are you?
      Michael: I can't tell you that.
      Roger: Why not?
      Michael: Because once they know you know, you die.
      Roger: Not a lot of wiggle room there, is there?

    • Michael: If it'll make you feel any better I could just walk over here on this side of the street, you know, for protection. Like this. This way, I could be here for you if you needed me or...you could just ignore me. Like you're doing...How's it going on your side?
