    Lisa Wiseman follows Michael hoping to figure out what's he up to, not realizing she's endangering herself. This plot have complications that risks the life of some of the main characters. But nothing to fear, Michael now have superhuman abilities that he can defeat just about anything the bad guys can throw at him. Michael Wiseman is a cool superhero, his motivation is a noble one, to see his wife and kid again on top of serving his country. It's a cool storyline. this episode have a few laughs in it, since it's also comedy, that's good for a show.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • During the scene in the car, when filmed through the windshield, Heather is wearing yellow sunglasses. The next shot (through the driver's window), she's not wearing them.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Agent: We just need to flush out who he is, which is where the prototype comes in.
      Michael: Prototype?
      Dr. Theo: Gentlemen, we make it a point to refer to Mr. Wiseman as Mr. Wiseman.
      Michael: Oh, that's okay. They can just call me by my model number and I'll address you fellas by your "hole" names.
      Agent: What do you mean, whole names?
      Michael: Well, you'll be a-hole and you'll be b-hole and you'll be... Well, you get the idea.

    • Dr. Theo: Why send in a real live man, when you can send in one who's already died?
      Michael: What? That's it? That's what makes me the right man for this job? Because I've been dead?

    • Dr. Theo: He wants to meet one man with a satchel full of bonds. I volunteered you.
      Michael: I don't get it. What am I going to do? Am I going to run real fast? Am I going to beat him at arm-wrestling? Are we going to have a contest to see who can hold his breath the longest?

    • Dr. Theo: How do you feel?
      Michael: Oh, it's hard to tell. Lack of oxygen may have given me brain damage but I'm under warranty, right?

    • Dr. Theo: You didn't see anything strange down there, did you? He didn't do anything unusual, did he?
      Lisa: Well, he gave me an egg. (pause) And then he kissed me.
      Dr. Theo: That's very distressing. He's not supposed to do that. You have my word, ma'am, that he will be given the most severe reprimand possible.
      Lisa: Well, let's not go overboard. It wasn't completely unpleasant.
      Heather: Mom!

    • Lisa: You're crazy. You're a crazy man walking around asking people to hold his egg. Screw you. Screw you.
      Michael: Really? You sure? It's a weekday you know.

    • Michael: Let's take a step back and look at my qualifications. I was dead. But think about it Doc, a lot of people have been dead. Heck, I think it's safe to say that everyone at one time or another in their lives is gonna be dead. I mean, if I were looking for a guy to save the world, dead, wouldn't be the make it or break it quality in a man.

    • Dr. Theo: You're dead, my friend, and you're just going to have to learn to live with that.

    • Dr. Theo: I thought we agreed that we were going to concentrate on the here and now.
      Michael: Call me an old softy, but there's something about staring at death a second time that makes me nostalgic.

    • Dr. Theo: Mr. Wiseman, somewhere along the way, have I mistakenly given you the impression that you have a say in what you will and won't do? If I have, please accept my apology. If I tell you your job today is to effect the safe and expeditious transfer of money, unless and until you hear otherwise, your job is the safe and expeditious transfer of money. You are an experiment. My experiment. I will tell you when and what you will do. You are part of this operation for one reason and one reason only. Any confrontation with any individuals using biological agents is highly dangerous work. If we could send a robot down there, we would. You just happen to be the next best thing.

    • Michael: Can we discuss this, please? Guy to guy? Man to man? Science fair project to scientist?

    • (Dr. Morris allows Roger to believe he's God)
      Dr. Theo: You know who I am, don't you? So you know what I'm capable of, don't you? Then hear me, friend. If you breathe a word of what you've seen tonight-- if you breathe a single syllable of your theory-- I will smite your ass so fast you'll skip fight past heaven and hell and be turned straight into pus.
      Roger: Pus?
      Dr. Theo: Pus. It's got to come from somewhere, right?
