    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Although no date is given as to when Tory is sent back, Mr. Jones says it's 20 years later, which would make it 1979. There also a reference made to a 1978 tennis tournament.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Tory: I'm one person. I'm alone in this.
        Mr. Jones: You're never alone.
        Tory: Don't give me that God stuff. Look around you - this is a hospital. Tell me where to find God in this.
        Mr. Jones: All around you.

      • Mr. Jones: God never closes one door without opening another.
        Tory: (sobbing) I'm stuck in the hallway and there are no days left.
        Mr. Jones: If you can't find the door, look for a window. What matters most is that you seek.

      • Tory: You know, I used to think of service as just the opening shot of a tennis game. But now I know it is so much more than that. Service is giving of yourself and it is the only way to be truly happy. And as you have all exhibited by your generous support, once you start doing it, you just want to do more.

      • Mr. Jones: If we didn't have mystery, Tory, we wouldn't need faith.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • What matters most is that you seek
        This is likely a reference to Jesus' words in the Bible: Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)

      • Orphan Annie
        Refers to Little Orphan Annie, an American comic strip which debuted on August 5, 1924. The title was inspired by American writer and poet James Whitcomb Riley's popular 1885 poem Little Orphant Annie.
