Main Cast


On a late night at a diving platform belonging to the Pollard Underwater Center, a team of technicians plan to send a diver, Danny Murray, down in an experimental suit, to investigate some mysterious night dives. The boss, Henry Pollard, wonders if he's having second thoughts but Danny makes the dive.

Danny's suit overinflates and then explodes, killing him...

Episode Quotes
Annie Murray: The police... the police, the police aren't interested in anything unless it has a hole in the center and it's covered with powdered sugar.

Annie Murray: Why are you doing this?
Ray: Because it's important.
Annie Murray: To me.
Ray: To the both of us. It's something I can do something about. It's something I can understand.

Ray: I always say if you're going to be an environmentalist, a few million dollars doesn't hurt.

Karen Marshall: I've got a masters in marine biology. I was never a cheerleader. I worked eight years to get through school. I just think there's a lot more to me than three feet of leg and thigh.
Ray: (kisses her) That was for the masters' degree, I just couldn't resist.

Ray: I never make promises I'm not sure I can keep.

Karen Marshall: Since when are you so concerned about wrong and right?
Ray: Now there you go again, misjudging the men in your life.
