Episode Summary

The Night of the Pelican

West and Pike receive a note to meet a woman at a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco with a promise of information about the militant Din Chang who has recently stolen a supply of fulminate of mercury from a military arsenal. Unfortunately, the woman is killed before they can talk to her and the only word she utters is "Pelican." To further complicate matters, the only person they manage to capture is supposedly still serving time at Alcatraz. Since it seems that Alcatraz and the woman are the two pieces they have of the puzzle, the two split up to track down Chang before he can use the volatile mercury.

    • Corporal Simon: There are 105 iron cannonballs in these three pyramids. Each ball weighs forty-two pounds. And there's only one minor little problem.
      Jim: Someone stacked them in the wrong place.
      Corporal Simon: You got brains, too. On the other side of the parade ground. Start stacking.
      Jim: You realize, of course, this may ruin our friendship.
      Corporal Simon: I'll take that chance. Start stacking.

    • Sara: I've examined you thoroughly. There are no broken bones but you are a mass of contusions and bruises.
      Jim: Well, cannonballs usually do have that effect on me.

    • Corporal Simon: Take a good look around, Cort. You won't be seeing sunshine again.
      Jim: One thing I can always count on from you is a few cheerful words.
