  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: When first asked to see how long they'll stay on this world, Quinn looks at his watch, instead of at the timer.

  • Quotes

    • Egghead: We have a great assortment of booby traps, heat-seeking androids, and mind-blowing mayhem guaranteed to kill a few of you in a very entertaining fashion.

    • Nicky: (to Arturo) You're a little out of shape for the games aren't you pops?
      Arturo: Well it depends what sort of games you had in mind, doesn't it, madam? (Rembrandt laughs)

    • Quinn: I wonder who invented this game.
      Wade: Some pretty sick puppies.
      Rembrandt: Yeah. Well, maybe they got bored with the Super Bowl, huh?

    • Rembrandt: Well, if it's a bomb, we're gonna have to disarm it.
      Wade: What do you know about bombs?
      Rembrandt: Girl, in the Navy, you learn a lot about everything. Hey, Professor, what are the wires comin' out of this coil?
      Arturo: That isn't a coil, Mister Brown. This is a diesel engine; they don't have coils. How much time did you spend on that course?
      Rembrandt: Well, I took a couple of classes before I left on a U.S.O. tour.

    • Rambrandt: (to Arturo) You know something? For somebody with so much education, there are moments when you aren't very smart at all.

    • Arturo: Mister Mallory, every teacher goes through life, hoping, just once, to have a student like you. I just wanted you to know that. Now go away.

    • (Under fire)
      Quinn: Has anybody got a pen?
      Wade: What, you wanna write a letter?
      Arturo: The pen is a mighty instrument.

    • Quinn: (Trying to re-balance the trigger to get Wade safely off it) How much do you weigh?
      Wade: 100 pounds (Quinn looks over at her) Okay, maybe 104 - I had a lot of pizza last week.

    • Arturo: (after Quinn finds Arturo outside of the safe house) This may come as a surprise to you, Mr. Mallory, but I am not yet comfortable with making my private hygiene a public event.

    • Wade: I've got this thing about flying.
      Quinn: Sliding between parallel worlds doesn't bother you, but flying does?
      Wade: You have no idea how much.
