    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Eric: Hollywood. Where dreams come true, unless you dare to dream something bold and original.

      • Eric: I lived and breathed Spoils for three years. I slept with the cast. Every member of the cast you see tonight, I slept with. My wife at the time, Lauoreighiya Samcake, the actress who plays Cynthia Morehouse, was very adventurous in all matters sexual. The woman had no shame. (chuckles) Like Eve before the fall. We often would hold up shooting to take pleasure of each other's flesh. In front of everyone, in fact.

      • Eric: Tonight's episode covers the war years and they are based on my own terrifying experiences... reading about the war as a child.

      • Eric: Please, won't you enjoy part 2 of my wonderful miniseries, The Spoils of Babylon? Why would I say "wonderful"? Makes no bloody sense. No one says "wonderful." Sounds like something a man from a circus would say. A carnival barker if you will. I don't say wonderful--I don't say "wonderful," I never have. I refuse to say "wonderful." It's not wonderful, it's--it's momentous. It's epic! But this mini-series is not wonderful!

      • Devon: There's more action up here than a cathouse on pay day.

      • Devon: That will go down as the finest landing in the history of the Naval Air Corps. I must remind myself to give myself a medal.

      • Madtoxxon: As General Cauliffe just said, there isn't a man alive who could have survived the fiery inferno of that plane going down. Every bone in his body would have been charred, crushed. But... we simply can't be sure.

      • Cynthia: He's on that island. Let me go there. Let me talk to this "Mr. Tanaka."
        Madtoxxon: No need for air quotes, that's his real name.

      • Jonas: Well, I want to thank you gentlemen for making the trip out here to my house. It means a lot to me and my daughter, you're here--in this room--with us.
        Cauliffe: It means a lot to us, sir, to be here with you, in this very room, in person.
        Jonas: I want to thank you for being here in person in this room.
        Madtoxxon: It's the least we can do to be with you, here, all together in the same space and time.

      • Eric: The story continues the next time. I'll be here waiting for you. Probably in the same booth with the same moribund look on my face. How could it be otherwise?
