  • Giant crocodiles? Okay, I'll give you that. But for a show that's supposed to have intelligent writers who know something about sea life, you'd think they'd know something about breathing.


    I'm willing to go along with a 'giant crocodile that gets thawed out and terrorizes the sea' - it's sci-fi. I can even go along with the ill-conceived plan to re-freeze said croc (thereby making it the problem of the future) instead of killing it now. But what will happen to the croc you're trying to 'save' when you tranquilize her underwater and drag her underwater for a long distance? Last time I checked crocs breathe air, not water. I'm fairly sure that a tranq'd croc can't hold its breath... Congratulations geniuses, you just killed it. Steve Irwin is rolling over in his watery grave. Not one of the better episodes.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • O'Neill (about Ford's call from his father): A secured line with his dad?
      Ortiz: They have a...special relationship.

    • Dagwood: You don't like your family?
      Ford: No, no, no, I love my family. It's just easier to love them from far away.

    • Dagwood (about Ford's explanation about his family): No, I get it! We have a family because we have to drive them to distraction, where there is a restaurant that we go to to be nice to people who don't have to love us.

    • Ford (to his father): Plankton? A two hundred foot crocodile's attacking me and you want to attack it with spores?

    • Charles Ford (about evacuating his farm): Fine. You tell the bank I'm defaulting on my loan because of a two hundred foot crocodile.

    • Ortiz: If you're so rich, how come you keep working?
      Ford: Because I like ordering guys like you around.

    • Charles Ford: You missed a golden opportunity. With me out of your life you could run the business anyway you wanted.
      Ben Ford: I don't want you out of my life, Dad. Just out of the way.

    • Dagwood (about the prehistoric crocodile): No. You can't kill her. Put her back.
      Smith: Dagwood, I wish it was that simple.
      Dagwood: It is. Put her back where we got her. Where did we get her?

    • Charles Ford (to Ford): Sorry I had to thaw a hundred million-year-old crocodile out to get you to come visit.

  • NOTES (1)
