1997-03-01 00:00:00 - Not real Earth Prime in Exodus - (Stephen Chow <lchow@stu.uomhs.edu>)


Two words: Squeaky door. Remember there was an episode where the Sliders were on Earth Prime for a minute or two only to find that the gate is not squeaky anymore. Thinking that they aren't on Earth Prime, they slide. It turns out that Mama Quinn had a handyman around who took it upon himself to oil up the squeaky door. If you go back to the tape and review the part where Quinn opens the gate, you would hear a squeaking sound. Thus proving that they didn't actually find Earth Prime and the Brain Sucker do not have the coordinates to Earth Prime in his timer. Hope this makes sense to you guys. Steve Chow

I wish people would stop going on about the squeaky gate. Gates squeak. You oil or grease them, and two months later they're squeaking again because the lubrication has weathered away. Of course it was Earth Prime. You can take it for granted. Otherwise, there was no reason at all for that sequence. Further, the fact that Quinn randomly hit bingo within only three years indicates that the number of reachable Earths is not all that great -- hundreds or perhaps a few thousand, not millions or billions, and certainly not an infinite number. Indeed, they should begin randomly re-arriving on Earths they've already visited. (Better hope they skip the blown-up one.) But there's no logic in this show at all, so never mind. It doesn't matter. -- Stop by http://www.fred.net/thirteen/

Because, IIRC, a different actress was playing Quinn's mom. So, since she was different, they weren't on Earth Prime. =-) -- Micheal (Chris) Keane - Associate Professor of Psychogravitational Analysis Wooden Chair of Gravitational Morality, University of Ediacara Join the Church of Last Thursday and worship Queen Maeve!

Just by using the laws of probability it's equally likely for him to land back on Earth prime as any other world he's never seen. Origin: Star's End * 314-432-8031 * @121.FILEnet

Sorcerer Quinn helped them try to get home with his much more advanced sliding machine. /--- / /-/ /-- /--/ / / /--- /--- / /-/ /- /-/ / / / -- 888 / / / \ /-- /--/ /---/ /---/ _____ / \ | ----- | | | | | | | ___ | | __ / \ | | / \ ___ ___ | | | | \ \----- \ | | | | | \----- \ | ( ) ( ) ( ) | | \ \ | | \ | \ / "Christ rode on an ass, but now asses ride on Christ." -Hillel "Any fool who would trade a little liberty for a little security deserves neither." -Franklin
