  • Trivia

    • It is revealed that Courtney escaped from prison about a fortnight prior to the events in this story, and nobody told Oscar about it.

    • When Jaime is on the run after escaping from prison, she has a rather nasty encounter with a quicksand bog. She escapes from that, and as one would expect, she's all covered in mire and goop. However, when she starts running again after this, she's miraculously clean again.

    • When Jaime is on the run with the prison guards and hound dogs in tow, she stops off at a fenced in warehouse area to use a phone to call Oscar. When she reaches to pick up the receiver, we can clearly see two small scabs on her right (bionic) hand.

  • Quotes

    • Dr. Courtney: (talking to Lisa on the phone, trying to talk her out of reneging on him) You'll be able to afford anything you've ever dreamed of.

      Lisa: Not everything. There are some things that money won't buy, you know.
      Dr. Courtney: Not many when you've got ten million dollars.

    • Dr Courtney: (thinks Jaime is Lisa, and does not know his plan to kill Jaime failed) Jaime Sommers is in a prison grave wearing Lisa Galloway's face. If your adrenalizine is missing, she's the one who's got it.

      Oscar: I don't think so, Courtney.

    • Jaime: Lisa, do you remember Plato, that little white rat? Well, he's dead.
      Lisa: So what?
      Jaime: Well, the adrenalazine did it!
      Lisa: I don't believe you! (throws a chest at Jaime, who dodges it)
      Jaime: Rudy says that it's breaking down and becoming a poison. That pain is the poison, Lisa. Can't you see you need help?
      Lisa: You just don't want me to live like you!
      Jaime: No. I want you to live like you.
      Lisa: I can't!!
      Jaime: Yes, you can! Your life is worth living. You don't need mine.

    • Lisa: My name is Jaime. I'm Jaime Sommers.
      Jaime: No, I am Jaime. Your name is Lisa Galloway, and you need some help.
      Lisa: No!!! (smashes the kitchen table) See what I can do? I'm Jaime!
      Jaime: That was Jaime's favorite table. Now if you were her, you wouldn't have done that.

    • Oscar: We're going to surround the coach house at the end of the road, but be careful. She's very dangerous.
      Jaime: Oscar, waitaminute. I wanna go in alone.
      Oscar: No way, Jaime.
      Jaime: Lisa doesn't need the treatment that I got at that storage depot. Now I know how that feels. She's a person, not some kind of a hunted animal. Let me talk to her. Maybe I can help her.
      Oscar: After what she's done to you? Why?
      Jaime: Because she doesn't know who she is anymore. She's frightened and confused and God knows I've been there.

    • Helen: Jaime...
      Jaime: Oh, Mom...
      Helen: Is it really you this time?
      Oscar: Where is she, Helen?
      Helen: In the coach house. (to Jaime) She's so much like you.
      Rudy: Is she in pain?
      Helen: (nodding) I feel so awful, just like when Jaime was having her problems.
      Jaime: Mom... you're really worried about her, aren't you?
      Helen: It's so hard not to. If you could just see her... talk with her... you're not angry with me?
      Jaime: No. How could I be angry with you for loving somebody?

    • Jaime: Plato! What happened?
      Rudy: The adrenalazine is breaking down chemically. It's becoming a poison. Plato's dead, and if you don't get to Ojai soon, Lisa will be too.

    • Helen: Jaime? Is that you?
      Lisa: Yes. I'm starving - I forgot to take my lunch today. Hi.
      Helen: Hi, darling.
      Lisa: Is that Scotch Broth?
      Helen: Uh-huh. And grilled cheese sandwiches.
      Lisa: Mmmm. It's my favorite. I could eat a horse right now.
      Helen: Well, I know you can lift one.
