  • A great story and great acting. Excellent episode.

    The basic story line of someone foreseeing the future and trying to warn people of impending danger has been used over and over in the history of movies and TV. However, the psychic of this story "sees" into David Banner's alter ego, the Incredible Hulk. A great story and great acting!



    When I first saw this episode, I was captivated by the relationship between David Banner and Annie Caplan. I thought to myself, "They make a great couple." Later I found out that they were actually married to each other in real life. As I continued to read their real life biography, I was saddened by the news of their divorce and the death of Brenda Benet and their son Christopher. What a tragic loss for everyone.



    To this day when I watch this episode, I see the love in their eyes for each other and wish that things could have been different for them.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Annie: I was just trying to warn someone.
      Switchboard Supervisor: You're not being paid to save the world, you're being paid to answer the switchboard.

    • Jack McGee: It was an accident, wasn't it?
      Johnny: What's the difference? you think the judge will go easy on me because I only meant to smash a cop...instead of my friend?

    • Manager: (Criticizing Annie Caplan's reluctance to contact the National Register about the Hulk) You're feeling sorry for a guy who's a public menace?

    • (David is on the verge of jumping to his death)
      Annie: David, suicide is not the answer. It's not going to bring that boy back to life.
      David: This isn't a suicide, this is an execution.

  • NOTES (4)

    • The arena where McGee is interviewing Johnny appears to be the same arena where "The Final Round" in season one was filmed.

    • alias: not given

    • job: grocery store

    • Guest-star Brenda Benet was Bill Bixby's wife. By the time this episode had originally aired, however, the couple were divorced and fighting over custody of their son Christopher. One year later, in March of 1981, Christopher died of a throat infection at the age of six. Consumed with grief, Benet killed herself in 1982. (Ironically, her character, Annie Caplan, was admittedly suicidal over a past failure to save a child!)
