  • A good average episode that devls deep into Fredericks history

    6.7
    Lt. Fredericks is not one of my favorite characters, she's kinda blocky and not well developed but this episode has give me adeeper look into her. It was contirived around an important UEO moment and has all this season's major players involved. I especially loved the part where Henderson and Ford sublety get it on in the board room. This is confirmed when Hudson notices that Ford's unifrom is untucked in the back and points it out to Ford.

    Unfortunately most of the episode drags on and on to the point where it passes dull and heads towards snoozefest. Even Darwin's little speach seems contrived to take up time.

    The fact that this episode airs after Brody has died is confusing too. If you want to paint the man as a hero it should have been done while he was alive. This episode is a prime example of how this show could've worked but didn't anymore.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • TRIVIA: This episode aired out of sequence originally, and in reruns. It actually takes place before the events of the episode "SpinDrift" when Lt. Brody was killed in action.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Ford (to Hudson): I'll tell you one thing, abolishing the U.E.O. does have one benefit. You don't have to go to one of the mixers every time the charter expires.

    • Hudson (to McGrath): The problem is, sir, half the people in this room think you're running the U.E.O. like a police state and the other half think you're just a big wimp. It must be hell talking out of both sides of your mouth.

    • Piccolo (reading a news article): "McGrath's veto of the U.E.O. arms ban was overturned by the security council for fear it would destabilize diplomatic relations with non-nuclear, anti-strike opponents." I finally got my dyslexia under control and people stopped talking English.

    • Piccolo: No offense, Lucas, but there's a big difference between being a brain and helping somebody find it for themselves.
      Lucas: You know what they say: those who can't, teach.
      O'Neill: And those who can't teach, teach languages.

    • Brody (about Fredericks): Well, maybe it's easier to engage when the consequences of danger have been programmed out of you.

    • Henderson: (Ford) shouldn't be jealous.
      Piccolo: Maybe he should be.
      Henderson: Oh. I didn't know.
      Piccolo: Hey, neither did I.

    • Lieutenant Henderson: No, Jonathan. It's time. I want people to know okay? I'm tired of sneaking around.
      Commander Ford: Whoa, wait a second. You're the one who said you thought secrets were sexy.
      Lieutenant Henderson: No, I said dirty e-mail is sexy. This is pathetic. I feel like I'm dating a married man. Just once, I'd like to go some place where we might actually bump into our friends instead of hiding from them. Maybe if people knew they wouldn't get the wrong idea, or if they did get the wrong idea it would be the right wrong idea. And people like Tony wouldn't get hurt.
      Commander Ford: Oh, right, let's be sure and run everything through Tony Piccollo. He's certainly my litmus test.
      Lieutenant Henderson: What is that supposed to mean?
      Commander Ford: It means I'm glad you and Tony have become such good friends.
      Lieutenant Henderson: At least he knows how he feels.
      Commander Ford: Well, maybe you'll feel better dating Tony.
      Lieutenant Henderson: Maybe I will. Jonathan... just say it. You don't want to do this anymore.
      Commander Ford: It's not what I need to say to you Lonnie. It's just I have such a hard time saying these things. I don't know, maybe I'm defective or something. But I'm really trying. I'm really trying.

    • Fredericks: You know what Noonan? It's guys like you, that give guys like you, a bad name.
