Episode Summary

EDIT
The Devil's Window
AIRED:

Two miles beneath the surface, seaQuest explores one of the ocean's truly remarkable phenomena: steaming hot hydrothermal vents play host to an underwater forest of giant tube worms and other forms of life where none was thought possible. But when Darwin the dolphin becomes deathly ill, Captain Bridger is forced to choose between the mission at hand and the life of one of his crew.

  • This episode quickly establishes Captain Bridger's priorities aboard seaQuest.

    7.0
    A dark smoker causes Darwin to become ill, forcing Captain Bridger to decide between continuing a scientific experiment, or doing everything he can to help seaQuest's resident dolphin.



    In the pilot episode, we saw that Nathan Bridger is a scientist first and does not think highly of the military. In "The Devil's Window" we learn that Bridger's number one priority is the safety of his crew. seaQuest is in good hands. I'm glad such a pivotal characteristic was fleshed out so quickly.



    I was a little alarmed though that Bridger and Lt. O'Neill seemed to have no clue how to navigate Darwin's tubes. I thought they would have a little more knowledge on the layout.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • TRIVIA: Lucas Wolenczak wears a Homestead Grays jersey for portions of this episode. The Grays were a member of baseball's Negro League.

    • In the scene where Bridger and O'Neill are taking Darwin to Sea-Deck, there is a third man (stuntman) visible in the water, at the far right.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Bridger: It is exciting. I mean, if this thing works, we'll know in weeks what normally would have taken years.
      Young: Exactly.
      Bridger: On the other hand, we could wind up on the bottom of the ocean in little tiny bits. seaQuest wasn't designed to haul around your fantasies, Raleigh.

    • O'Neill (swimming through Darwin's ship-board tubes): Where are we?
      Bridger: I don't know. I failed to put directions down here. Must be a design flaw.

    • Westphalen: Shouldn't you be on the bridge?
      Bridger: Ford can handle that.
      Westphalen: And Raleigh?
      Bridger: Ford can handle him, too.

    • Bridger (to the empty com screen): Uh, Malcolm? Hello? Malcolm Lansdowne?
      Lansdowne: Uhhhh, I don't know. Does he owe you money?
      Bridger: It's Nathan Bridger, you clown.
      Lansdowne: Good heavens. Nathan, where have you been? Are you in jail?

    • Young (about Darwin): In some parts of the world that crew member is an ingredient in bouillabaisse!

    • Noyce: I assure you, Captain Bridger must have a good reason for his actions.
      Young: He most certainly does. He's insane!

    • Young: Is your dolphin going to die?
      Bridger: Probably.
      Young: How long?
      Bridger: I don't know. Death doesn't punch a clock.

    • Westphalen: Ah, if we knew all the answers we wouldn't be scientists, we'd be gods. Do you know, I think it may be some kind of dolphin medicine!
      Bridger: And Darwin's mom brought it to us like some kind of chicken soup?

    • Darwin: Darwin loves Bridger.

    • Dr. Westphalen: Eat. Put something in your mouth besides words.
