    I thought this episode was definitely exciting. I liked that Bridger made everyone focus on the submarine, even though you could see that he was also worried about his crewmembers. I thought it was also nice how the crew on the surface were able to rely on eachother to survive the hurricane.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In the scene where Lucas and the others are lost in the middle of the ocean, the camera moves to Lucas as he laughs, and there is a reflection on a wall behind him.

    • During the scene when Darwin spits out the fresh water at Bridger, it's visibly coming from the right next to Bridger and not from where Darwin is positioned.

    • TRIVIA: The haunting sea shanty that Manny sings is called The Drunken Sailor and dates backfrom the early 1800s, if not earlier. Numerous versions of the lyrics are available on the Internet, and some of them are pretty risque.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Bridger (searching for a French sub): Mr. O'Neill, that's a nine million dollar communication buoy reeling out behind us. I'd like to hear something in French.

    • Krieg: This is one of those character builders, my friend. You hang on tight, you take the whipping, and you come out stronger on the other side.
      Lucas: Oh, cut the crap, Krieg, I'm not a kid. You don't have to do that morale officer stuff for me.
      Krieg: This is who I am. Glass half full, that kind of thing.
      Lucas: Yeah, glass half full of what, Ben?

    • Krieg (to Lucas): Would you look at that? Look! You're in the eye. How many people get that close to an actual hurricane? Bet you didn't think that was gonna happen when you woke up this morning.

    • Bridger (after seaQuest is electrocuted): You all right?
      O'Neill (lying on the deck): Fine, sir, thank you.

    • Hitchcock (using a whisker as a generator): This guy isn't strong enough to power all the work stations you need. Now I can give you all stations at once at a fraction of their capacity, or one station up full.
      Bridger: One station, fully operational.
      Hitchcock: Okay, which one?
      Bridger: All of them. Just one at a time.

    • Lucas (in a storm-tossed life-raft): My hands are shaking.
      Westphalen: How can you tell?

    • Westphalen: I knew it! I knew you ate those lobsters.
      Krieg: I didn't know they were an experiment.
      Westphalen: What else would they be for?
      Krieg: They were in the galley refrigerator.
      Westphalen: To slow their metabolism, not to eat! (pauses) Were they good?

    • Lucas: How can you just sit here and make jokes when a hurricane is about to kill us?
      Krieg: What do you want me to do, give up? I say, as long as we're laughing, we're moving forward...and it's important to me. It's important.
      Lucas: I don't want to move forward. I wanna get the hell out of here.

    • O'Neill: What about Commander Ford's party?
      Bridger: Our obligation is to those kids down there with no hope of rescue. Someone else will find the Commander's party. For the record, I'm just as concerned as you are.

    • Westphalen: Is anyone else having trouble with their ears?
      Lucas: Yeah.
      Westphalen: The barometric pressure is falling. A storm is building.
      Ford: Our last position had us near a nasty tropical depression.
      Krieg: How nasty?
      Ford: Probably a hurricane by now.

    • Ford: Krieg, can you fish?
      Krieg: I had a grandfather, yes.
      Ford: Good.
      Westphalen: This is sargasson seaweed. We're in the sargasso sea, which is slightly alkaline, very deep, very clear, extremely high salt content. There are no fish.
