    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Suzy: Life is full of surprises.
        Henry: It's not really life that's surprising me, Suzy Darling.

      • Henry: Listen, you were right. There is no time machine. I'm dead.

      • Henry: Look at these cars. I've never seen cars like these before. You've got to get me to an airport, take me home. I need to get to a proper continent.

      • Henry: It's only me. Sorry. That TV is extraordinary. Like having a cinema in your home.
        Suzy: It's called a home cinema.
        Henry: Oh, is it? Clever. Ah, listen Suz... um, I've been thinking about what's going on here and... I think I might be a time traveller. See, I think I might have been sent here from, you know, another era and something's gone wrong in the whole time travelling process and now I can't remember my mission. So, maybe that medallion is some sort of key to the mission. Where'd you get it?
        Suzy: I've had it since I was a kid, I don't know where I got it. I don't want to go to that place again.
        Henry: Listen, Suzy, what if that was the future? What if I've been sent here to change the present so that that could never ever happen? Do you get me? You and I could be sitting at the very crux of human history. We could hold the fate of mankind in our hands.

      • Suzy: What does this have to do with me?
        Henry: I don't know. But it does, because you are the only other human being that can see me and hear me. Apparently, to everyone else I'm invisible.
        Suzy: You may just be an hallucination, triggered by my high stress levels. I've just left my marriage.
        Henry: Well I'm sorry to hear that but I'm not an hallucination.
        Suzy: How do you know that?
        Henry: Because when you're not here, I still am.

      • Suzy: Why do you want to stay married to me?
        Steve: Okay. Okay, well, can I think about this? It does seem like an important point and I want to get it right, okay? So can I get back to you on it?

      • Suzy: Are you in any pain?
        Henry: Interesting, no. No pain.

      • Linda: Just make sure you're the wolf, not the pig.

      • Henry: Well, Suzy Darling, your tags are showing.

      • Henry: I could do with a cup of tea, a hot bath and a nice warm bed. How about you?
        Suzy: Those are night things and it's daytime, so...
        Henry: I did not know that. You can't have a cup of tea during the day.
        Suzy: Yes well, tea's different, it's just the whole package that you said, it was a night-sounding thing.

      • Suzy: Oh look, here's a lift. Ding.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title of this episode, The Man Who Fell To Earth, is an allusion to the 1963 novel written by Walter Tevis of the same name, about an extraterrestrial who comes to Earth in search of a way to save his race from severe drought. This episode title is the only one in the first series not to allude to a well known Rock song.
