Episode Summary

Enzo is feeling alone, since there are no sprites his age in Mainframe, Dot won't let him go into the games with Bob, and Frisket is off somewhere doing his own thing. So when a game cube drops on the Diner and he runs into a young female sprite named AndrAIa, he's all too quick to make friends with her. But there's something Enzo doesn't seem to realize about AndrAIa...moreless

  • A very emotional episode (more towards the beginning) in which viewers, including me, can relate to the circumstances of Dot and/or Enzo.

    With Bob and Dot constantly busy, they have no time for Enzo. Bob thinks it's time he gets a friend, but that is easier said than done.

    Why I say this is because this is the first episode in which part of Dot's past is revealed (which is revealed more extensively, later, in Season 4). Learning all of this enable viewers to possibly sympathize, or relate to the circumstances of Dot. They can also relate to Enzo who is, obviously, distraught over the death of his father and the fact that Bob and Dot are his only friends (who aren't even his age).

    Nevertheless, the beginning of the episode, in my opinion, is the best part and it'll have viewers possibly giving weight to some tears.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Bob Binome: I'm a gardener! I know everything!
      (The music ends. A voice hisses at him from the side.)
      Voice: That's a guardian. Guardian!

    • Dot: Now, could you help me with MY little problem?
      Bob: Huh? Enzo, I didn't even notice him!
      Dot: Exactly. We're too busy running businesses or saving Mainframe to have time for him.
      Bob: And, he hasn't got any friends because there aren't any small sprites left in Mainframe since the Twin City was destroyed. Oh, I'm sorry, Dot. I didn't mean to...
      Dot: No, it's okay. It's just the talk about the Twin City reminds me of my father...

    • Bob: Wow! Dot looks amazing. What a babe!
      Dot: I can still hear you!
      Bob: Oh, opps!

    • Dot: Not good, this is not good!
      Bob: Hey, that's my line!

    • AndrAIa: I like you, Enzo.
      Enzo: Uh... I like you too, AndrAIa.

    • Enzo: Everyone's having a better time than me! I've got no one to play with and it's all Dad's fault! If he hadn't deleted most of the Sprites I'd have some friends!
      Dot: Enzo!

    • Bob: They (Captain Quirk and Jean-Luc) set off an explosion capable of destroying an entire planet!
      Dot: Bad idea...
      Bob: Yeah, especially if you're INSIDE THE PLANET!

  • NOTES (10)


    • The submarine sequences with Enzo and AndrAIa in the very narrow channels battling the User shark are a nod to the similar scenes in The Hunt For Red October with Sean Connery. Even the general sense of the cinematography and their dialog is about the same as they navigate the too-close turns to avoid the torpedoes.

    • The girl who tries to get Bob's attention at the seminar with "I (heart) U" written on her eyes references a scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, where a girl tries to catch Indy's attention by writing "Love You" on her eyelids.

    • The third binome out the door of Dot's Diner is "Where's Waldo".

    • During the final approach to the Atlantis-like setting where the game is to end, we see two large golden statues of a three-headed winged dragon. Closer inspection reveals that the statue is that of King Ghidorah, one of the principle rivals of Godzilla in the classic Japanese movies of the 1960's and later in the 1990's.

    • Cecil: "Tea, Earl Grey"! What is this "Tea, Earl Grey"?
      "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" was how Captain Picard would order tea from the replicators on the Enterprise in "Star Trek: The Next Generation".
