  • This has got to be one of Quins best episodes. His acting was wonderful and the drama was great. This is what Sliders is all about, not that junkie idea of Aliens that destroyed the show.moreless

    A must watch episode, for all fans . They must have figured out here how good Quinn really is as an actor. The others didn't do much in this episode but if you are a Quinn Fan then this is a must to see. Let me know what you think.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Trivia: The idea for this world is based on physicist's Herbert Van Meer idea. He postulated that the Earth could rotate on its axis slightly faster, and yet complete one solar revolution in the same amount of time. Over the course of billions of years a time lapse would occur due to gravitometric forces. The result is that the events that took place 12 years ago on Earth Prime take place here in the present,

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Quinn: Did you know we're all made from stardust? You, me, your father. All of us. Our atoms were formed in the stars. Not the stars you can see now, no, the older ones, the ones that went nova and turned into dust. Think about it, Quinn. Our bodies are made from remnants of ancient suns.
      Young Quinn: Wow. For real?
      Quinn: For real. Of course, you can't look to the heavens and actually see your dad. But one day, his physical essence will blow into space. Yours and mine, too. And together, we'll make new stars. Tell me that isn't cool.

    • Arturo: (to Quinn) I know this is tough on you, but you must not interfere. Without this experience, this boy may never reach his full potential. He may never become a man like you.

    • Arturo: The past should be remembered, not relived.

    • Arturo: Barkeeper, what ales do you have?
      Barkeep: Well, uh, that depends on what ails ya!

    • Quinn: I bet all the guys feed you that famous line: "Teachers never looked like you when they went to school."
      Heather: Yeah, it's right behind, "What's your sign?" Don't tell me that's what you were gonna say!
      Quinn: I can't. My favorite teacher looked exactly like you. I was Quinn's age, and man I had a crush on her. Intense! Of course, I knew it wasn't possible, but - I couldn't help myself. Crazy, huh?
      Heather: Yeah, maybe... But not to you. Not at the time. Love's funny that way. Sometimes it has no boundaries.

    • Arturo: (After Arturo bungee jumps off a bridge) Now pull me up, Mr. Brown, and let me do it again!
      Rembrandt: How do we get him up?
      Arturo: Wonderful!
      Wade: You don't know?

    • Arturo: Still, better to live one day as a lion than a thousand as a lamb.
      Rembrandt: Guess that's why there's so many lambs and so few lions.

    • Rembrandt: My mother always said, "The only difference between a rut and the grave is a few inches."

    • Bull: Hey! I'm talkin' to her!
      Arturo: But you're looking at me. Are you confused?

    • Bull: Those words... all those syllables. It's like... it's like being back at school!
      Arturo: Well, at least that implies that you did go to school. This is good.
