    • There's Always A Downside

      There's Always A Downside was another perfect and very entertaining episode of Warehouse 13. I really enjoyed watching as Artie make Pete and Claudia work together while Myka works with Steve. It was interesting to see Hugo and learn about the marbles he had. Steve and Myka meet a musician who takes the pain of others away with an artifact and Steve has an interesting experience. I liked the ending when Artie refuses to undue what he did and learns that things have been set in motion. I look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Claudia: I told them you probably got hung up yelling at kids to get off your lawn.
        Steve: Or maybe you were busy inventing fire. You know, from caveman times. (Artie stares) I'm not allowed to do those, am I?
        Artie: No.

      • Peter: And in one of the stranger things I've said on this job: Declan, give me your marble.

      • Claudia: What's up, Jinxy? Why you wearing a serious face?
        Steve: I keep telling you guys, this is just my face. I'm contemplative.
        Pete: I don't know. I'd say it's more constipatitve.
        Myka: That's not a word.

      • Hugo: So whatever you do, don't panic. Trampling each other will only make it worse if the poison gas gets out.
        Cheerleader: Did you just say poison gas?
        Hugo: Yeah, it's kind of a chemical reaction...
        Claudia: Hugo! Probably best not to use words like "poison" or "trampling."
        Hugo: Right.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Hugo: Like Hogwarts.

        Referencing Hogwarts School of Magic, presided over by headmaster Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts School of Magic. The school is found in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels about the title character and boy sorcerer.

      • Pete: And Harry Potter becomes Full Metal Jacket.

        Referencing the 1987 movie starring Matthew Modine and R. Lee Ermey, and chronicling new Marine recruits during the Vietnam War, and the stress they are exposed to that causes them to sometimes snap.

      • Pete: I'm talking, like, Piranha 3-D, so be careful, okay?

        Referencing the 2010 horror-comedy movie, a loose remake of the 1978 movie Piranha. A school of piranhas are unleashed by an earthquake in Arizona and terrorize the local lakeside community.

      • Claudia: Heather, Heather, Heather, Heather, and Heather.

        Referencing the 1989 black comedy showing a clique of high school girls, three out of four which are named Heather, who essentially rule the school. The movie chronicles the attempts of the fourth girl, Veronica (Winona Ryder), to break free of the group but her attempts soon end in murder.
