  • Quotes

    • Suzee: So… I'm one of you guys, except… I'm not. And I can push my way into minds, except… heh… I won't. And I'm real smart and I can make you feel stupid, but… I won't do that either. So…… Where do we go from here?
      Harlan: With any luck? Home.

    • Radu: It's amazing. She can actually scan thoughts.
      Harlan: Yeah, but she told me she doesn't like to do it. She said it makes her feel…
      Rosie: Nosy?

    • Suzee: Don't worry, Harlan. He doesn't want to eat you. He just wants to tear you apart.
      Harlan: Oh, well good. For a minute there I thought I was in trouble.

    • Suzee: You're safe now… Thelma… sandy, but... safe.

    • Thelma: That quicksand was the pits.

    • Radu: It's Thelma. She's calling for help.
      Suzee: I didn't hear anything…
      Harlan: He's an Andromedan. He can hear a spider spin its web from a mile away.

    • Harlan: You know I… I kinda think I owe you an apology.
      Suzee: For what?
      Harlan: Well… I used to tease Catalina all the time about you being imaginary. And… well… you're definitely not imaginary. You are… as real as it gets.
      Suzee: Well, Harlan Band… Apology accepted.

    • Rosie: Well… she sure is smart.
      Bova: We probably seem really stupid to her.
      Rosie: Speak for yourself!

    • Bova: So! Looks like you got a new roommate now.
      Rosie: Yeah. …I miss Catalina, but I think I'm really gonna like Suzee.

    • Suzee: I've got good news, bad news, and… more bad news.

    • Radu: Elmira… It… always seems like we're saying Thank you, and… goodbye.
      Elmira: We'll be together again, Radu… It's our destiny…

    • Spung Captain: Your presence aboard this alien vessel is a…… Pleasant surprise… Sirola Elmira, we had presumed you dead.
      Elmira: Attack this vessel again, Captain, and you'll wish you were dead.

    • Thelma: Commander. The concussion from the sister ship's explosion has taken several systems offline. Including the cooling system on deck six, jumptube number three, and...
      Goddard: Thanks, Thelma, we have more important things to worry about at the moment.

    • Harlan: You're Suzee. Catalina's imaginary… Invisible friend.
      Suzee: Yep.
      Radu: You're really Suzee…
      Suzee: Yes… I'm really Suzee.
      Bova: So, let me get this straight. You're Suzee?
      Suzee: It's hard to believe you guys were flunking out! Yes. I'm Suzee!

    • Suzee: So you heard me out there, huh?
      Radu: You have to ask?

    • Rosie: She's so different from us! What can't she do?
      Radu: Go home.
      Bova: Guess she's not so different from us after all.

    • Rosie: Does anybody know where we are?
      Goddard: Yes. We're definitely lost.

    • Davenport: I will not faint. I will not faint. I will not faint. (Passes out)
      Goddard: Figures. She fainted.

    • Suzee: (to Radu) Maybe later, we can get together for a game of Brains versus Brawn.

    • Radu: (immediately after crash) Way to go, Harlan.
      Harlan: Oh, yeah, fine! Blame it all on me!
      Radu: No, I meant it. You got us down safely. Thanks.
      Harlan: Oh. You're welcome.

  • Notes

    • The decision to make the Christa look more techno was made by Nickelodeon, who decided that the extremely alien look of the ship was offputting for younger viewers and wanted to put more "familiar looking" controls in place.

    • The creative team wanted to make Elmira a regular, but a variety of factors - not the least of which was budget - prevented it.

    • The actress who played Elmira was credited last season as Katie McIninch. This season, she is credited as Katie Emme, but it is the same actress.

    • Suzee's appearance was supposed to be a mystery, Nickelodeon showed a commercial two weeks before this episode, revealing Suzee's face.
