Episode Quotes

Stephen Jameson: Uh, how many of you are there?
John Young: Here? You're number 15. Out there? Could be hundreds, thousands.
Cara Coburn: It's a genetic mutation that lies dormant through adolescence. Sometimes it never breaks out.
John Young: Until then, people like you think they're regular saps.
Cara Coburn: Homo sapiens.
Stephen Jameson: As in... human. Uh, if I'm not human, then what the hell am I?
Russell Kwon: You, my friend, are a Homo superior.
Cara Coburn: We didn't pick that name either.
Stephen Jameson: Okay, okay, wait wait wait, wait. Where are we? How-... Who are you?
John Young: You're in an abandoned subway station 100 feet below the streets of Manhattan. You teleported here. Actually... I teleported you.
Cara Coburn: We're called Tomorrow People. And we didn't choose the name, I swear.
Stephen Jameson: [laughing, seeing the others] This isn't happening. It's just another one of my crazy dreams.
Cara Coburn: [telepathically] It's not a dream, Stephen.
Stephen Jameson: How did you do that?
Cara Coburn: You've heard of telepathy? It's another one of our powers.
John Young: The three Ts, the third being telekinesis.

Cara Coburn: [to John] He doesn't believe us.
John Young: It's funny, the teleporting usually sells it.
Stephen Jameson: No offense, but any second I'm gonna wake up someplace awful. Maybe another three-way at the neighbors' place.

Cara Coburn: You don't understand, Stephen. You're one of us. You're breaking out.
John Young: You're waking up in weird places, Stephen? You're not sleepwalking. You're teleporting. You hear Cara's voice in your head, that's telepathy. Your latent powers are starting to appear. Soon, you'll be able to do this.

Stephen Jameson: Okay, oka- okay! Okay! Put me down! Put me down!
John Young: You got it.

Stephen Jameson: No, no, I'm having a psychotic break. My meds are off or something.
John Young: No, no, no more pills. They're obviously addling your brain.
Cara Coburn: What he means... is the drugs are just going to get in your way.
Stephen Jameson: Get in my way? You have no idea what my year has been like.
Cara Coburn: [with a hurt expression] Stephen, I know *exactly* what it's been like. I know how alone you've felt, how scared. You feel like you're turning into a different person, like your mind isn't your own. All those hours on your therapist's couch? I was there with you, Stephen. When we're connected, I feel what it's like to *be* you.
Stephen Jameson: That sounds, um, awful.
Stephen Jameson: Excuse me, um, whatever... your name is.
Tim The Bio computer: Hello, Stephen.
Stephen Jameson: Um, I was, jus- hoping I could ask a favor.
Tim The Bio computer: You would like to see the rest of your father's message.
Stephen Jameson: Yes. How'd you know?
Tim The Bio computer: People are predictable. Even ones like you.
Jack: [in projected video on the wall and on a laptop's display] I thought maybe you'd get lucky. Take after your mom. But if you're watching this, well, things did turn out the way that I'd hoped. And... I know I have no right to offer you advice - not after what I'm about to do - but, if you turned out like me, then your life just got very complicated, and very dangerous.

Jack: Don't believe everything you see. Truth is, there's only one thing you *can* trust: you. Trust your heart, son. I love you, Stephen. I love you.

Stephen Jameson: What do you think, supercomputer? What do you think? Is he alive?
Tim The Bio computer: I wish I knew the answer to that, Stephen.


  • Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): Jedikiah's line, "No, you're threatening them if you don't help me contain the spread of your species," was looped in post production. His lips say, "You threaten them. If you help me contain the spread of your species..." before cutting away to Stephen.
  • Goof (continuity error): Shortly before Stephen gets abducted, he's walking down the street. There's a parking lot in the background by the waterfront. A white U-Haul van is parked in the middle next to a small blue car. The van disappears in all subsequent shots.


  • Stephen Jameson's bedroom features a poster of Tower Bridge, London, with the word "London" on it to refer to the show's UK origins. London Bridge is the next one upstream.
  • While Stephen's student ID is for James Buchanan High School, the fictional Brooklyn high school created for Welcome Back, Kotter, the interiors were actually filmed in a real school, Brooklyn Technical High School. The name of the school's football team, the Brooklyn Tech Engineers, is partially visible on the floor of the gymnasium.

I like this type of show and I enjoyed watching it. I do however wish they would not continue to fall back into the same old stereo types. "The one", "the Saviour", this is getting really old. For a show with such a modern topic they really need to get over the classic: we are the good, and they are the bad, and this one is our saviour. We have seen this so many times, that it gets very tiresome, even in this exciting setting. I will keep watching for a few more episodes. If you are a Heroes fan, this may be disappointing. Everyone under 18 is going to love this, I would like this to be more grown up. But it was just 1 episode, lets see what happens, maybe I will change my mind :-)

After 3 episodes of the 70's version i had enough.. i went directly to the 90's version.. too much phychodelic cinematography. (like the opening to early seasons of Doctor Who). not that there is anything wrong with that, but seriously not bad if you get past that.

The UK version from the 70's is pretty retro when it comes to shows.. but its not terrible.. after i watch all 8 seasons of it , i'll start watching the 90's version...

I hope this show lasts longer than Heroes. I like this genre of programming, for the most part.
