Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In the electronics store, Quinn gives Arturo his home address. There are 2 problems with this. 1)Quinn doesn't know if he still lives there on this world and 2) Arturo should already know his address since he meets at Quinn's home when they first slid to the "nuclear winter world" in the pilot episode.

    • Goof: In the basement, Wade states that it is 2 AM and that Quinn has been working for eight hours straight. This would leave 16 hours until the impact. However, in the next scene in Bennish's lab, an announcement states there are 22 hours left.

    • Goof: In the electronics store, the San Francisco News broadcast refers to the coalition of scientists as the Union of Concerned Scientists. However, Arturo later mentions that he has a meeting with the Union of Distinguished Scientists.

    • Nitpick: Quinn throws the fire extinguisher on the floor, but it makes no noise.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Bennish: Unreal. We'll, uh, we'll share the patent, right?
      Arturo: Mr. Bennish, if we are successful, I'm sure there will be enough credit to go around. And if we are not, there will not be another major life form on this planet for about 100 million years.
      Bennish: I trust ya, dude.
      Arturo: You do, Mr. Bennish? Awesome! (high fives Bennish)

    • Bennish: I mean, who's going to say no to us anyway, man? We've got the atom bomb.

    • Wade: (referencing Bennish) The key to the world's survival?
      Arturo: Genius comes in all sorts of shapes and however galling that may be.

    • Bennish: Anyone want a liquorice?
      Wade: Sure.
      Bennish: (Bennish licks the liquorice) Treasure it.
      Wade: Never mind.

    • Arturo: Will you shut up that bloody noise?! The fate of the world is in my hands, and I feel like I've got guitars exploding in my head!
      Bennish: Oh, sorry. Why don't I put on something a little more mellow.
      Arturo: (Bennish plays similar rock music) Ahhh!

    • Arturo: Mr. Bennish, appalling as this thought may be, you and I are going to be spending a lot of time together.
      Bennish: No way, Chief. I've got a girlfriend.
      Arturo: Don't be an idiot!

    • Wade: I don't want to spend my last hours worrying about something that I have no control over.
      Quinn: (Quinn opens the wine bottle) You're amazing, I never realized it.
      Wade: There's a lot of things about me you never realized.
      Quinn: Oh yeah?
      Wade: Yeah.
      Quinn: What else?
      Wade: (they nearly kiss, but Wade hesitates) Do you... have any matches?
      Quinn: I'll go check.

    • Bennish: We're going to save the world... "Fat Boy"!
      Arturo: (to the others) "Fat Boy", in case you didn't know, is the name of the bomb, in case you had any other ideas.

    • Bennish: I've even got the prototype.
      Arturo: You've got the prototype of the - Here? In San Francisco?
      Bennish: Ready, willing, and able. Fat Boy.
      Arturo: I beg your pardon?
      Bennish: Fat Boy. The name of the bomb is "Fat Boy".
      Arturo: The name of the bomb was "Fat Man", you blistering idiot!

    • Arturo: Mr. Bennish, if we survive I promise you this, I will dedicate my life... to isolating the gene that makes you so obnoxious, and I will destroy it.

    • Arturo: Others take note: the first casualty of sliding... is dignity.
