    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Patrick Massett, who plays Sam's "brother" Ralph Beaumont, also played Rusty in Season Two's "The Americanization of Machiko".

        In that episode, he also had a physical fight with the person Sam leaps into.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Al: Those morons, they guard their computer secrets like a little virgin guards her...
        (Sam gives Al a look)
        Al: ...her stamp collection. Why are you looking at me like that?

      • Sam: Why do we even bother?
        Al: 'Cause that's what we do. We're...professional botherers.

      • Sam: The most important thing is that you have faith. You gotta believe. Because if you believe, even in the face of your so-called facts, miracles can happen.

      • Sam: Tell her you love her or I'll kick your butt up to your teeth!

      • Sam: Your husband...has got some wonderful qualities.
        Annie: And he hides them so well.
        Sam: Well, you know...have you ever looked at a beautiful building...and you never looked at the foundation, did you?...Without the foundation, the whole building would topple down...Maybe you should think of Ralph like he was a foundation.
        Annie: Ok. He's a pile of posts that are better off buried and you don't even notice them 'til they rot. And then you either replace them or move on. Well, thanks Billy. I never quite saw it that way.

      • Sam: (Talking to the sky) I don't know who's running this show. I don't know why I was chosen. I bounce around from place to place, do everything I'm supposed to do, at least the best way I can, but I don't know how to do this one. I mean, you gotta help me. I figure you owe me, for a couple of times, anyway. You make it rain. You hear me?! You make it rain!

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Sam tells Annie that she thinks there's a magical land of Oz beyond the town's borders that will solve all of her problems. This is, of course, a nod to the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, in which a young Kansas farmgirl gets taken to this mystical land after growing bored of her farm chores.

      • When Sam and Clinton hype the townspeople up about the coming rain, Al likens them to Barnum and Bailey, the famous ringleader's of the circus. P.T. Barnum is known for the quote, "A sucker is born every minute." (Even if he never said it.)
