    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When in Sylvia's room, at one point Harrison is to Ironhorse's distant left, but then when it cuts back to a shot of Harrison later, you can see Ironhorse's shoulder to his left (and there being no indication that either of them have moved).

      • Harrison and Ironhorse walk into Sylvia's room and then stop as she turns around, but the reflection off the mirror behind her shows the two still walking in while she's turning to face them.

        Then when the camera cuts to a close-up of Harrison, the door behind them is inexplicably shut.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Scott: Human brains are useless.
        Leo: Useless for their original purpose. Essential for this!

      • Ironhorse: Maybe they - they've gone back to where they came from.
        Harrison: How? Walk?

      • Desk Honey: What can I do for you?
        Leo: I need brains.
        Desk Honey: This place is full of airheads. You're outta luck today, honey.
        Leo: Don't count on it.

      • Alien: We are nothing without your counsel, Advocate.
        Advocate Oshar: A most prophetic observation.

      • Scott: You're finished now.
        Teen Queen: I am? I thought a perm took a whole hour.
        Scott: Not anymore. We don't have time.
        Teen Queen: I hate it. What are you gonna do with this?
        (He holds up a small saw.)
        Scott: How about a little off the top?

      • Advocate Xana: Originally, we'd intended to put your brain matter to good use. Now you vile creatures can serve a higher purpose.
        Advocate Oshar: Now we will use your bodies. Bring us the three strongest.
        Alien: Yes, Advocate.

      • Suzanne: What would Harrison do?
        Ironhorse: Your guess is as good – no, better than mine.

      • (At the morgue where brains have been removed from cadavers.)
        Detective Harley: What would you do if you had all those brains?
        Officer Roberts: Make detective, sir.

    • NOTES (5)

      • Ilse von Glatz and Kim Coates both appeared in the film La Famiglia Buonanotte. Since Kim plays a host to one of the healthy Advocates, this means that there's a 50/50 chance that he and Ilse more or less played the same character here.

      • Ternary traits: The officer states that three dozen (12) brains were taken from the morgue.

      • This episode does not feature Michael Rudder.

      • The Lyndon Power Plant, where the Advocacy go to set up their distillery is possibly named after Barré Lyndon who wrote the 1953 film.

      • In the opening credits, the clip of Richard Chaves playing with a Rubicks cube is now replaced with a clip of him pulling out a knife (from "The Second Seal"). This small change is the only time in the first season in which the credits were altered visually.
