  • An positively wonderful episode! The best by far in the series in my opinion.

    I absolutely loved this episode. There is something about it that just pulled at my heart and spoke to me. Most especially during Molly's song "The Rock". I love it. I really wish Disney had released the music from this wonderful series when they cancelled the show. Thankfully, I still have the episode taped and am able to listen to the beautiful song.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • TRIVIA: The scene where the suit of armor dissolves to Jack searching for Fi is another clue to Jack's past life as a knight.

    • TRIVIA: In the original ending of this episode, Fi agreed to give up a couple of years of her life so her grandfather can live, but it was changed because Disney couldn't live with that.

    • TRIVIA: Mackenzie Phillips performs the song "The Rock" in this episode.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Fi: I want my grandfather to live!
      Banshee: The wishes of mortals have no power here.
      Fi: But we love him! I love him!
      Banshee: There is a balance. Some die, others live.
      Fi: A balance?! What balance?! You took my father when I was three! How fair is that?!
      Banshee: It was not we who took him.

    • Banshee: I can smell the O'Shannon blood in your veins. We have met before, Fiona.
      Fi: Fi. Fiona was my great-grandmother.
      Banshee: I know who ye are. Why do ye come here?
      Fi: You come to announce people's deaths, right? Well, I want you to go away. I want you to leave my grandfather alone. It's not his time to die yet.
      Banshee: That's not for ye to decide.
      Fi: Then whose decision is it? Yours? You can't just take him. You have to give me a chance to fight this. You said you knew me. You said you smelled the O'Shannon blood in me. Then you know who the O'Shannons are. What we are. We're different, aren't we? You have to give me a chance.
      Banshee: Very well.

    • Fi (narrating): Ever since I found out that my mom's family came from Ireland, I've been fascinated by the place. I even took one of those Irish stepdancing classes. It made my feet hurt and I quit after a week. So, I started reading about Ireland instead. And the interesting thing here's this beautiful place, but as far as I can tell, it has more mythical creatures per square foot than any place on Earth. But the scariest of them all has got to be the Banshee. The wailing of the Banshee is supposed to foretell death. This sound has been described as a mix of the cry of an abandoned child and the screech of a lost soul in torment. Nothing you'd want to hear at 2 AM, which is usually when they show up. Some legends say that Banshees only come to foretell the death of those who have royal blood. But others say that a Banshee can follow any family of ancient lineage, especially those gifted with music and song. Oh, great.

    • Banshee (to Fi): Your grandfather will not die...for now.
