Season 1 Episode 5

Emotional Rescue

Aired Sunday 9:00 PM Nov 02, 2003 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • Jane obvouisly doesn't have a case against Gary, so he decides to give her one for what reason? To get his girlfriend to talk to him?

    • If all Gary wanted Nicki to do was call and tell Darcy that Nicki had misjudged his character, why did he take her for a car ride?

    • Can Tarzan/John really be considered out of control? Considering his upbringing in the jungle, and the potential foes that he would have had to fight, his vicious attacks (which cause only superficial cuts and bruises) really aren't that far out of line.

  • Quotes

    • Kathleen: You didn't even tell me he was alive. You've kept him locked in a cage!
      Richard: I saved his life! I kept looking long after you gave up. I found him filthy and alone in that jungle and I saved him.
      Kathleen: And you brought him back to get what you've wanted for 20 years. It was all about control of Greystoke then and it still is now.

    • Jane: John...you gave me my sister back. I owe you everything for that. I know there's a part of you that most people don't see. A part that's very gentle and very kind. And I want you to know...that I see it. And I'm glad that I did.

    • Tarzan: You're worried.
      Nicki: That obvious, huh? Yeah. I'm worried about my friend.
      Tarzan: Why?
      Nicki: She's with this guy who might be hurting her. And Jane's doing all she can but I don't know if it's enough. I don't know what to do.
      Tarzan: She needs help. I'll help her.
      Nicki: You mean now?
      Tarzan: Yeah.
      Nicki: Let me get dressed. I'm coming with you. Thank you, John.

    • Kathleen: Richard. What are you doing here?
      Richard: Where is he?
      Kathleen: I asked you a question.
      Richard: I answered it. Where are you hiding him?

    • (after Jane stops Tarzan from beating up Gary Lang)
      Jane: John, that's enough!
      Tarzan: I know he'll hit her again.
      Jane: No, he won't. I won't let him.

    • Kathleen: You haven't seen Jane Porter in a while. This wouldn't have something to do with her, would it?
      Tarzan: She doesn't want to see me.
      Kathleen: She said that?
      Tarzan: No.
      Kathleen: Then how do you know?
      Tarzan: When I'm with her, she's sad.
      Kathleen: John, she cares about you. She wouldn't have gone to all this trouble for you if she didn't care.
      Tarzan: Then, why do I make her unhappy?
      Kathleen: People can feel two things at once. Even opposite things.
      Tarzan: I only feel one thing. Why can't Jane?

    • Richard: I love you. I just want to help you.
      Tarzan: No.
      Richard: Please just give me a chance.
      Tarzan: Never.
      Richard: Why?
      Tarzan: I see what you are. And I hate you.

    • Sam: (About Tarzan) Yeah, well the kids got a hair-triggered temper and sooner or later you're gonna be the one who gets hurt.
      Jane: Ah, he'd never hurt me, that's not who he is.
      Sam: You know who you sound like? Darcy.

    • Sam: You know what I don't understand, I don't understand why smart girls go for these dangerous guys. I mean are they bored, hot-bothered or just stupid?
      Jane: Why are you asking me?
      Sam: No reason.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Sam: Good plan, you almost had him, he was just about to swing at you, until Goldie Locks jumped in.
      Sam refers to Tarzan as Goldie Locks while talking to Jane. Goldie Locks is a fairy tale character with very long blonde hair in the tale of the 3 bears. This brings reference to Tarzan who has long blonde hair.
