Episode Quotes

Girl: Boy, Jaime's the most important person that ever came out of our town. Except for that astronaut guy.
Helen Elgin: [Steve and his stepdad are going for a walk] Now you boys behave yourself, be back by ten.
Col. Steve Austin: [laughs] I figured we'd do a little honky-tonkin'.
Jamie Sommers: [Awaken from her bionic surgery] I thought I was dead, Steve.
Col. Steve Austin: No way.
Jamie Sommers: I feel so... I don't know. My right arm looks all right. What did they do?
Col. Steve Austin: It looks more than, all right. You see, Jaime, this is a very special hospital. They can rebuild you. Even better, than you were.
Jamie Sommers: Rebuild?
Col. Steve Austin: It's a brand new science called bionics, where the biology of your own body controls electronics, in your arm.
Jamie Sommers: [after glancing, at her bionic arm] You mean, my right arm isn't my arm?
Col. Steve Austin: Yes, it is, now. It's wonderful, Jaime. It's like nothing you've ever seen before. And once we've trained it, you'll never be able to tell it from your left. Believe me.
Jamie Sommers: [after looking at her arm again] It looks all right, huh?
Col. Steve Austin: Oh, it looks great.
Jamie Sommers: I guess I'm lucky. I could've lost my left arm, too. Or my legs. Steve, I want to see my legs.
Col. Steve Austin: Sure.

Jamie Sommers: Ooh, thank God. I thought for a minute I remembered...

Jamie Sommers: . What's wrong, Steve? I can't move my legs.
Col. Steve Austin: They're bionic, too.
Jamie Sommers: [Rolls her eyes] Oh, my God.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (continuity error): When Steve and Jaime are readying themselves for their parachute-jump, the ground is only a few thousand feet away, yet just moments later when they are starting their fall from the plane, they are obviously at least a couple miles up.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): For Steve's mission, Oscar briefs him to recover $20 bill printing plates stolen from the Denver Mint. The Mint only makes coins. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is responsible for printing paper money.
  • Goof (continuity error): Jaime's parachute is yellow and blue with a red center panel. Yet in the shots of the lines getting tangled, the chute is plain white. Then when Jaime hits the ground, the chute is the original colorful fabric again.
  • Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): The audible tones are much too high for the settings on the audiometer. For the "2000" setting, for example, the tone heard is well over 4000 hertz.
  • Goof (factual errors): Contrary to what Dr. Wells tells Steve, 4000 hertz is definitely not too high a frequency for normal people to hear; it's merely in the mid-upper range of human hearing, like a fairly high "C" on a keyboard. Even "basic" or "bargain" audio graphic equalizers that have just a few separate frequency controls (like five or seven level-adjusters) often have an upper range of at least 16,000 hertz.

Trivia

  • The popular two-part episode "The Bionic Woman" featured two songs performed on the soundtrack by Lee Majors himself. These were the country song "Gotta Get Loose" and the ballad "Sweet Jamie", the latter of which was loosely based upon the Six Million Dollar Man theme music.
  • Originally broadcast as a two-part episode of The Six Million Dollar Man and released to video as a 100-minute movie in the 1980s.
  • Lindsay Wagner took the part of Jaime Sommers as a birthday present for her sister, whose favorite show was The Six Million Dollar Man.
