  • Trivia

    • In this episode they say that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle modeled Sherlock Holmes after Dr. Watson's great deductive mind, but this can't really be true. The first Sherlock Holmes story was written in 1887. A year after the characters injected themselves with the blood which means Watson probably wouldn't have had any chance to garner a reputation. And Holmes was modeled mostly after Joseph Bell one of Doyle's former university professors. Also Doyle was living in Southsea at the time and Watson was in London so they couldn't have met.

  • Quotes

    • Druitt: (joking about his teleportation ability) Not often I use a front door. Quite the novelty.
      Big Guy: You're not welcome here, Druitt. You know that.
      Druitt: I bring critical information, my hirsute friend, about the troubles in the north.
      (The Big Guy snarls softly and lets Druitt enter)

    • Helen: Forgive my skepticism, John, but your history of altruism is just behind a scorpion's.

    • Druitt: Please, I am your father.
      Ashley: Then you should start acting like one, and that does not mean kidnapping me when you want to spend some quality time.

    • Helen: You have frostbite.
      Druitt: It's certainly no reflection on your hospitality.

    • Helen: Henry, prepare a level-three residential cell for introduction of a possible bio-hazard.
      Druitt: That's better than some things I've been called.
      Henry: What's the point? He's just gonna teleport outta there anyway.
      Druitt: I give you my assurances I will not.
      Helen: Let me back up those assurances with an EM shield. You teleport, you die.

    • Big Guy: Telegram.
      Henry: Telegram? What is this, 1890?
      Helen: Our Dr. Watson tends only to trust the more established forms of communication.

    • Watson: You haven't changed a bit.
      Helen: Since last fall in London?
      Watson: No, since spring of 1886.
      Helen: Coming from such a keen observer, I'll take that as a compliment.
      Watson: Now, I will need help. I have a driver and a truck at the loading dock. I brought some things.
      Helen: Things?
      Watson: Corpses, Helen. You didn't expect me to arrive without a gift, did you?

    • Will: And people tell me I sound like Sherlock Holmes.
      Helen: Actually, Will, that's exactly who he is.

    • (Magnus and Watson are performing an autopsy)
      Helen: Body is that of a male abnormal, odobenus rosmarus sapien. A genetic mélange of human and walrus.
      Watson: Koo-koo-ka-choo.

    • Will: Uh … I'm sorry. It's just, it's amazing to me. Sherlock Holmes, Jack The Ripper … The fact that you two can sit here together and …
      Watson: Time is a great healer. Uh, redemption, that requires a little more.
      Druitt: Oh, you ooze judgment, Doctor, like a weeping sore.
      Watson: Well, in a life devoted to justice, sir, it is a constant burr on my backside that you have avoided it.
      Druitt: Justice is meted out in many ways. You're not the only one haunted.

    • (Henry is attempting to reassemble the dispersal device)
      Henry: It's really hard to know how this sucker worked. So much chop, so little suey.

    • Will: Where did Gregory hide the vial?
      Helen: Ah, in one of the most inaccessible places on the planet.
      Watson: The lost city of Bhalasaam in the Indian Himalayas. The seat of the original culture of ancient vampires.
      Will: So, not Transylvania?

    • Will: And what's your power, just showing up for the meeting after 135 years?
      Helen: I'd like to see you do it.

    • Henry: So, somebody better wake up Druitt, 'cause we ain't got time to take no fast train.
      Helen: We?
      Henry: Well, you can't send Druitt alone. The guy's all hearts and flowers one day, the next day, he's turning a working girl into a canoe.
      Helen: Yes … Despite his good will as of late, there are definitely warring sides to his personality. Will … keep Druitt company.
      Will: What? Well, why me? I'm supposed to tell Jack The Ripper to fetch?
      Watson: Just remember, his sharpest implement is his mind.

    • Helen: You want me to send you into the heart of the Cabal's weapons factory, and do it all on your own?
      Ashley: Henry said he'll go with me.
      (Henry steps forward like an eager volunteer)
      Helen: No offense, Henry, but you don't graduate from Eagle Scout to James Bond overnight.

    • Will: (talking about the invisible girl) Look, she talks a tough game, but she's afraid of her own shadow, when she has one.

    • Ashley: What would boys do without their toys?
      Henry: Okay, can you stop with the boy thing, please? If we're gonna do this together, I need, like, a modicum of …
      Ashley: Respect. Henry, you're Indiana Jones … with cooler toys.

    • Watson: You know, it's not the mission, Helen. What worries me is that gleam in your eye.
      Helen: Suck it up, Jimmy. We're going to India.

  • Notes

    • Peter Wingfield has appeared as unusually old man in the past - on the television show Highlander, Peter played the character of Methos, the oldest known Immortal (he was over 5500 years old).
