  • Sad finale, luckily one of the best episodes

    Well in my opinion the series came to an abrupt end and could easily have lasted another 14 episodes (and wouldn't it have been great to get a christmas special in ape land?). However despite the sadness of knowing there is no more apes the series goes out with a bang as one of the best episodes. It has it all from romance to humour- Action to suspense. The new human (I forget his name) is a real star unlike so many guest actors who have brought the series down. The story isn't complex like so many episode are but its simplicity is its strength. The ending is good enough although many fans would have liked a definative closure but unfortunatly that will never happen now and I quite like the openendedness of it. Overall a great end to one of the best US tv shows of the decademoreless

    • Leuric: What's wrong with (Galen)?
      Pete: Ancient human disease. Seasickness. (laughs)

    • Leuric: I've made it happen! What nobody ever did before!
      Galen: You also may be killed the way no one's ever been killed before. Here we go...!

    • Leuric: It's all my fault.
      Galen: Of course it is. Some humans are much more humans then other humans, but you... you are the most human.

    • Leuric: You were very clever – you wanted to find out what I knew about flight first.
      Pete: Right, we risked our necks just so we could take lessons from Wobbling Willy and his wonderful wiggling wings.

    • Pete: Hey, hey, getting a little hung up on (Carsia), Galen, huh?
      Galen: If you mean what I think you mean, I think you are jumping to premature conclusions. (thinks about it) Which may be correct. Hmm.

    • Galen: You don't think that you're kind?
      Carsia: I'm really not sure. I think I have other qualities more important.
      Galen: Such as...?
      Carsia: Well, I think it'd be more interesting if you find out for yourself.
      Galen: (chuckles) I intend to try...

    • Carsia: How may I help you?
      Galen: You already have, by reviving my confidence in the fact that I am not the only ape on the planet with interests other then eating and sleeping.
      Carsia: (glancing at the gorillas) I myself have not found the company very stimulating.

    • Leuric: What do you want?
      Carsia: I refuse to be questioned by a human for whom I've requested decent treatment.
      Leuric: I'm sorry.
      Carsia: That's the first reasonable thing you've said.

    • Galen: Are you frightened?
      Alan: What? Seeing a man fly?
      Galen: A man...? (chuckles) Humans can't fly!
