Episode Summary

EDIT
Back to School
AIRED:
Twin German terrorists roller-blade through a government lab and when they leave all is in chaos and a pair of vials go with them. Their prize : a deadly smallpox virus, genetically mutated to kill within 24 hours, and the kicker is there is no cure. Yet. Only two scientists have the knowledge to create it, so Monk and Holiday split up to protect each one and await the inevitable arrival of the twins, Oslo and Arno. Monk's is a beautiful former lab assistant, Dr. Talbot, and it turns out she is in league with the terrorists. When Monk attempts to capture them she breaks one of the vials, taking Oslo with it. He then heads to Holiday, as her mark is headmaster of her former school, the Rosebrier Academy. Talbot shows up too and takes the school hostage in order to force the headmaster to make the cure. A deadly confrontation ensues, during which Davis is caught in the crossfire and shot, but his remarkable Quantum Wave-Powered Vacuum Pen saves him, and is also handy for snatching up the virus when Talbot goes for broke and breaks the last vial. Saving the school means saving the planet and the agents have done it again.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the worst action sequence in the entire series, Holiday stops Talbolt from escaping with a bow. The arrow she shoots misses her by easily an inch but the actress responds like it went through her left shoulder, even though it can be seen beside it. Then in the next shot she is actually holding onto the shaft like it has gone through her right hand instead?! But she is very obviously just holding it. Unbelievably bad direction, it was like they didn't even care.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Davis: (wheeling the paralyzed Arno out of the school) This paralyzer gun sure makes transport easier, right Oslo?
        Holiday: That's Arno. He's bad in bed, remember? No one can say you don't get stiff, huh buddy? (she pats his arm and he tumbles over with a yelp)

    • NOTES (3)

      • The poorest episode of the series ironically has the best gadget of them all, in the form of Agent Davis's Quantum Wave-Powered Vacuum Pen. Just click the fob and it can suck the lock out of a door, a bullet out of the air, and even contain a spilled virus. Just don't point it near your face, 'cause it can suck your eyes from their sockets. I want one. :)

      • An interesting look into Holiday's past by showing the boarding school she grew up at. And when it is revealed as a training ground for the Agency, she is greatly annoyed to discover that she had been selected and manipulated from a very young age to become an agent. This is but one of many slights against her by her employers. If the show had lasted longer and taken itself a little more seriously, perhaps the rift would have become the driving lynch-pin for the series. She may even have gone rogue.

      • At the beginning of the episode Davis is in Europe touring with Britney Spears, who is revealed to be one of the Agency's top agents.
