    10
    The 40th Floor was a perfect episode of Warehouse 13 because it began to pull the seasons story lines together and had a lot of action, drama, intrigue as well as character and plot development. The best part was meeting one of the Warehouse Reagents named Jane, who of course was played by the great Kate Mulgrew who played Captain Janeway on Star Trek Voyager. I guess they used the same name so younger generations might look up the reference and discover another great show! I loved her in this episode though, and it almost seemed as if she were the same character but in a different time, which we know is possible! Sally Stukowski the pretend FBI agent had some great scenes, and Mrs. Frederick does not play around when it comes down to it. I really look forward to watching the next episode because there were so many questions left and I want to see what will happen next on Warehouse 13!!!!!!!!!moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Artie: Since the days of Warehouse 2, the Regents have been its protectors. Its first field agents, they were responsible for instituting the artifact collection procedures that we carry on to this day. Over time, as more and more artifacts were amassed, the Regents became not only its owners, but the keepers of its secrets. For 2,000 years, their grace, their wisdom, and their sacrifice has ensures the Warehouses' survival and security. Only now they're the ones that need protecting.

    • Jane: You're meant to be here, Myka. We all are.
      Myka: I'm not sure I believe in destiny.
      Jane: At a time when we felt the least prepared to accept the challenge, the Warehouse called upon each of us. You, Artie, me. And we answered that call. If that isn't destiny, what is?

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (7)

    • Sally Stukowski: That's right, Boy Wonder.
      Referencing the nickname given to DC Comics character Robin, the sidekick of Batman.

    • Claudia: So if she's going all ten-little-indians on the Regent, shouldn't one of us be minding the reservation?
      Referencing "Ten Little Indians," a children's rhyme that was the basis for Agatha Christie's mystery novel And Then There Were None, in which ten people are trapped on an island and killed off one by one. Various movies have been made based on Agatha Christie's book, usually with the title Ten Little Indians.

    • Pete: Hey, Big Brother's watching.
      Referencing the novel 1984 by George Orwell, which introduced the concept of a "Big Brother" government agency that monitors the populace through near-omnipresent security cameras.

    • Myka: What, was he in Die Hard?
      Referencing the 1988 movie, Die Hard starring Bruce Willis, in which a New York cop takes on terrorists as they hold hostages in an LA office building. The cop is trapped in the building and uses a firehose as a makeshift rope to make a dramatic leap.

    • Jane: Not exactly the Butch and Sundance moment I was hoping for.
      Referencing the 1969 Western movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It is loosely based on the exploits of bank robbers Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and The Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), and popularized the legends of the two historical figures. The movie ends with Butch and Sundance charging out into the guns of the Bolivian Army rather than be taken alive.

    • Myka: More like Thelma and Louise.
      Referencing the 1991 movie about housewife Thelma Dickinson and and waitress Louise Sawyer. Louise ends up a shooting a man and the two friends go on the lam. The movie ends with them driving off a cliff rather than allow themselves to be captured by the police.

    • Claudia: You look like you put down Old Yeller yourself or something.
      Referencing the novel of the same name by Fred Gipson (1956), subsequently made into a Disney movie in 1957. Old Yeller is a Labrador Retriever/Mastiff adopted by a young boy, Travis. When Old Yeller is bitten by a rabid wolf, Travis is forced to shoot his beloved dog in a tearjerking scene.
