FlashForward: No More Good Days

An otherwise normal day becomes a life-changing event when every single person on Earth appears to have blacked out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds. To compound this, during The Event, each person had a dreamlike vision, apparently of their own future, of what was happening to them on April 29, 2010, at 10pm Pacific time, while they were blacked out.

Episode Quotes
Mark: Come on, Aaron, just call. She's cool.
Aaron: Nurses freak me out, man.
Mark: It's a date. She's not giving you a frigging enema.
Aaron: How do you know that's not my thing?

Nurse: You're lucky you have a girl.
Olivia: Are you kidding me? You only have to worry about one penis. I got to worry about all of them.

Nicole: Sweetheart, are you okay?
Charlie: I had a bad dream. I dreamt there are no more good days.

Stan: So you're saying what? Everyone's consciousness just jumped forward six months to April 29th?
Mark: Crazy as that sounds, yeah.

(a medical expert is being interviewed on TV)
Medical Correspondent: When the world-wide blackout occured, earlier today, people were undergoing brain scans at that exact moment.
Interviewer: So, like MRIs, or PET scans, that kind of thing?
Medical Correspondent: Exactly. And in each of these cases, the hippocampus, the memory center of the brain, was actively engaged for the entire two minutes and seventeen seconds. These thought patterns are consistent with a waking experience. People were not asleep, they were not dreaming.
Interviewer: So then, what is it that they were experiencing?
Medical Correspondent: Well, by all appearances, memories of events that haven't occurred yet.
(channel shifts, different people)
Pundit #1: So, everyone saw the future, but did they see the same future, I mean, are these accounts consistent?
Pundit #2: Well they certainly seem to be. Hundreds of thousands of people were watching the news broadcasts, reading newspapers, and their details seem to be the same. Senator Glenway will be facing ethics charges, the Dow will be in an upswing, there will be food riots in Ghana, the list goes on...

Aaron: You're worried your future's gonna come true. I'm worried mine won't.

Janis: Who the hell is that? Why are they awake?



Cultural References
As Mark and Demetri are in the car and Demetri asks Mark what he and his wife danced to at their wedding, on the right side of the car a Oceanic Airlines billboard can be seen. Oceanic is a fictional airline used in several movies and television shows. It's best known as the airline in Lost, but was first mentioned in the movie Executive Decision (1996).
