  • Love Sick

    Love Sick was a superb episode of Warehouse 13 and I really enjoyed watching it because Pete and Myka had a hangover sort of night with artifacts and Steve got the ultimate warehouse prank. I thought it was cool to see Dr. Vanessa and Hugo Miller again as they came together to help Artie and Claudia decipher and track an artifact causing people to turn to clay. I thought the story was quite interesting and I also enjoye Pete and Myka's scenes as they retraced their steps from the night before. It was also very interesting to see the fake F.B.I. agent in the end of this episode and makes me wonder what her employer is up to and who he is!!!!!!!moreless
  • Very funny episode with Pete and Myka. Artie's love story was okay but I enjoyed Claudia's wise cracks better.

    Love the scene with Pete and Myka waking up in bed together with no idea how they got there! That was possibly the funniest moment so far in the series! I really didn't notice that was Myka at first! Didn't know what was going on! Who was that girl Pete was with I was asking myself! lol! Then I noticed it was Myka and thought wow she looks pretty good as a blond! Go Marilyn Monroe's hair brush. She should use it more often! lol! I also enjoyed watching the artifacts they played with. Really fun shoes! :D Artie and Claudia going to investigate the clay virus was not so much enjoyable to me. Though I did like Claudia's cracks at Artie and Vanessa's relationship. :)moreless
  • Claudia and Artie travel to Salt Lake City to figure out what is causing people to turn into clay and so Artie can meet Vanessa Calder again. Meanwhile Mika and Pete find themselves naked in bed and reconstruct the previous evening to figure out why.moreless

    This was a bit different of an episode with the normal "away" team stuck at the Warehouse and Artie and Claudia on the road. It was also interesting to see Artie pursuing his romantic interests for Vanessa Calder. And along with that we see the return of Hugo Miller who also appears to have a romantic interest in Vanessa. The problem artifact this time is an ancient Hebrew medallion created to make a golem creature out of clay to protect the Jewish people but now invades computers and mutates into a virus that transports from the computer into people and changes their genetics to turn them into clay. This was done unknowingly by a computer service geek who takes a deadly revenge on a store full of employees for being fired from his job.

    Meanwhile back at the Warehouse Mika and Pete find themselves naked in bed together, to their mutual horror! While Claudia and Artie deal with the artifact problem they trace back the events of the previous evening attempting to discern whether anything more significant happened between them. This leads to their discovery they fell under the influence of some WC Fields artifacts that caused them to fall into a drunken and jovial mindset. While under the influence they played a joke on Steve Jinks bronzing him and initially being unable to debronze him. Once they discover this was all very innocent they release Steve and things are back to normal with Steve never realizing what had happened to him.

    Back in Salt Lake City the team has determined the cause of the virus and Hugo writes a program to reverse the effects of the virus and once implemented everyone recovers including Vanessa, who had been infected by a more virulent form of the virus as well. As the episode comes to an end we find Claudia consoling Artie since he believes Vanessa is once again in love with Hugo. But when Vanessa comes to say goodbye to Artie and he questions her feelings towards Hugo she informs him it is simply friendship and she is going to hold Artie to his offer of a romantic dinner in the future.

    This was a very good episode and interesting to watch Artie feeling romantic while Mika and Pete want to make certain that they never were.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The artifact with the Hebrew lettering was written in the reverse order. In Hebrew everything is read from right to left, so the property master misread and instead of spelling "truth" from top to bottom, did the opposite.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Pete: Artie, where are you going in the middle of the middle of the night?
      Artie: Ah... ha. ha. Nowhere, no place. Why?
      Claudia: Is that the coat I got you?
      Artie: This coat? Uh... so what? Yeah.
      Claudia: Is that a clean shirt?
      Artie: Uh... no, it's not. Um...
      Claudia: Did you trim your eyebrows.
      Artie: Hmmm? No.
      Claudia: What's that smell?
      Artie: What? I don't... smell anything.
      Claudia: Exactly. You primped.

    • Claudia: Oh, oh, I get it. So the CDC is your Bruce Wayne daytime face, but you spend your Dark Knights with the Warehouse.
      Artie: She takes great pride in making references neither of us will never understand, so...
      Vanessa: Riddle me this, Batgirl.

    • Myka: Oh my god, I'm blond! What did you do?!?
      Pete: No! Hey, don't blame me! Hey, I was good, but I've never changed a woman's hair color.

    • Pete: Artie, um, does your toothbrush mean anything to you?
      Artie: In the sense that it fights plaque and gingivitis, it means a great deal to me.

    • Hugo: Remember how we used to hang out in the Dark Vault, play records? You and me and... Mary Jane?
      Artie: What, we had an agent named Mary Jane? I don't...
      Claudia: Good God, where did you come from?
      Artie: What?

    • Steve: Firing a ray gun isn't as easy as it looks in the movies.
      Pete: No, hey, no! It is very hard to fire ray guns in the movies. How many times you see a storm trooper hit what he's firing at? Not once.

    • Myka: So W.C. Fields' juggling balls make you drunk and pass out.
      Pete: How come every other artifact makes me have to call my sponsor?

    • Hugo: did you ever find someone, Artie?
      Artie: Emet.
      Hugo: Oh, I didn't realize you were homosexual. Uh, are you what they call a bear?

  • NOTES (3)


    • Hugo Miller: It's so beautiful!
      References Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) when a Nazi guard present at the opening of the Ark of the Covenant saw the beautiful spirits flying out of it. Gazing in wonder, he says, "it's beautiful!"

    • Claudia: Oh, it's like watching Golden Gossip Girls.
      Referencing the NBC comedy The Golden Girls, which ran from 1985 to 1992. It features four older women living together in Miami, including a mother and daughter, and comedy ensues as they deal with their personal problems and each other.

    • Artie: That wasn't Pete singing The Piña Colada Song on my voicemail at 3 a.m.?
      Referencing Rubert Holmes' 1979 song Escape, known as The Piña Colada Song. It was the first number one song of the 1980s, and is arguably Holmes' best-known hit.

    • Pete: How many times you see a storm trooper hit what he's firing at? Not once.
      Referencing the Star Wars movies, particularly the first three (Episodes 4-6). The Empire's stormtroopers wear white armor and tend to shoot first, shoot last, and shoot most of the time. Despite that, they rarely hit what they are aiming for since doing so would mean that one or more of the main characters would be dead.
