Episode Quotes
(In the hospital, after Stewart's car wrecked)
Annabelle: Someone opened a cylindar of liquid oxygen and hid it in the boot of his car!
Jason: Liquid oxygen? Neat?
Annabelle: Yes!
Jason: Stewart must be very, very drunk.
Annabelle: Exactly. He was so high he could've floated away!
Jason: Sounds like a good way to start Mark Caine. I must remember that.

Annabelle: There's nothing "foolproof" about a dead man, four spacesuits, and a set of magnetic locks.
Jason: That's your trouble: being married to a computer, no imagination.

Stewart: Have you found any needles yet?
Annabelle: We haven't even found the haystack.

Jason: Keep your fingers crossed, and let me do the talking for a change.
Stewart: (after Jason leaves) Could we stop him?



Episode Goofs
