  • Trivia

    • Oscar states that Steve and Jaime, along with Michael Austin and Kate Mason, comprise the sole four bionic humans. This would indicate that Barney Hiller ("The Seven Million Dollar Man") and Andy Sheffield ("The Bionic Boy") have both passed away.

  • Quotes

    • Steve: Well, I... I... I did have something I wanted to say to you. Uh... you know, Jaime, we've known each other for a long, long, long time, and we've been through a lot together.
      Jaime: Steve...
      Steve: Now... uh... Jaime, just... uh... let me finish... when... two people...
      Jaime: Why don't we get married?
      Steve: Now... uh... please hear me out, Jaime... (stunned) What?!
      Jaime: I said - would you like to get married?
      Steve: Well... I... uh...
      (Jaime nods her head; Steve follows suit)

    • Jim: So... I hear you're gonna compete in the games.
      Kate: So... I hear you wanna be my trainer.
      Jim: Isn't life full of the most delightful little coincidences?
      Kate: So... you just wheeled on down here to ask me this?
      Jim: Well... beautiful night.
      Kate: It's gonna snow.
      Jim: Time on my hands?
      Kate: It's almost midnight.
      Jim: Tough crowd... Steve and Jaime brought me - they're... uh... they're around the corner... oh, c'mon, Kate... I'd worry about you. I wouldn't be able to sleep... and I... I thought that we could look for my uncle... together. How's that for stackin' the ol' deck?
      Kate: You are a rat!!

    • Kate: Hey, if I'm gonna start working for the O.S.I., I've gotta start sometime, right? But you... you'll be close, right?
      Jaime: Try and get rid of me. Just... please don't run, okay? Please...
      Kate: Okay, we'll jog.

    • ((Kate races, and beats, Jaime to a bridge)
      Jaime: (panting) I'm not doing this again... anymore... why do they always ask me to work out the new bionic... people? My gosh! I always lose! I'm startin' to feel like an antique!

    • Jim: It's temporary paralysis, though - isn't it, Steve? I mean, I'm gonna walk again...
      Steve: You may walk again. And if you'll walk, you'll run--faster than any man has ever run before, including myself.
      Jim: Sorry, Steve. It's... uh... it's a bit much to take in all at once, you know... kinda comes over me in waves, you know... the pain of the realization... I worked so hard for these games... I don't think I can deal with this right now. I can't even think of a good punchline.

    • Jaime: Kate, you chose this. And they chose you. They chose you because of all the qualities that make you Kate.
      Kate: Well, what if the OSI's made a mistake?! What if I'm not the person that they think?! What if I'm not a Jaime Sommers?!
      Jaime: Hey! They don't want a clone of me, okay? They couldn't handle it. They've had too many problems with me over the years.

    • Castillian: Jim Castillian. That's with two "L"'s.
      Jim: James. Goldman. One "L".
      Castillian: Oh, you're Oscar's nephew. That's right, I heard you were in town. You're training for the games, right?
      Jim: Uh-huh. The 400 and the hurdles. Fastest thing on two legs - 'cept of course for Alice Grayson. I never did catch her in four years of college.
