    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Dr. Helm claimed to treating Santa Helena's fever epidemic with salicylic acid, a precursor to acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin). Although aspirin is a powerful treatment for the symptoms of a fever--such as pain and inflammation--it can't actually cure the underlying disease, as was claimed in the episode.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (Tessa walks up to Marta and Doctor Helm)
        Marta: The Doctor informs me it was actually the Queen of Swords who recovered the medicine for him.
        Tessa: The Queen of Swords?
        Doctor Helm: Yes.
        Tessa: Is that true?
        Doctor Helm: Yes, it is.
        Tessa: I thought she was a criminal.
        Doctor Helm: Who knows what goes on in her mind.
        Tessa: Come on, Doctor, what do you think?
        Doctor Helm: I think its best never to rush to a diagnosis.

      • (Doctor Helm has picked up a pistol as Grisham stands over Tessa ready to deal a death blow)
        Tessa: Shoot him. Shoot.
        Grisham (laughing): No. He won't shoot me. He's a healer, not a killer. Not like me.
        (Doctor Helm shoots the sword in half as Grisham swings it down towards Tessa and she knocks him down and puts the broken sword to his throat)
        Grisham: Guess that leaves you on top. (she picks him up by the hair, sword still at his throat) Gently. (to Helm) How'd you do that?
        Doctor Helm: Just lucky I guess.
        Grisham: Yeah, I'll say.
