Quotes Edit

  • Oscar Goldman: Steve, it's just not possible!
  • Steve Austin: You know that's not true, Oscar, because I'm living proof that it is possible!
  • Oscar Goldman: I'm not talking about technology! We can put Jaime back together again - I think it's possible. But there are other considerations!
  • Steve Austin: Oscar, I asked you up here to help me. Now so far, all I've gotten is a handful of red tape! Now there's a woman in there with no hearing in one ear, an arm and both legs crushed beyond repair, and you... you have the power to put her back together again, just like you did me!
  • Oscar Goldman: Bionic limbs cost millions of dollars, d'you understand? Millions of dollars! I gotta get Rudy Wells and the whole bionic team up here. How am I going to justify the expense?
  • Steve Austin: Well, how did you justify me?!
  • Oscar Goldman: That was different! There was a need!
  • Steve Austin: There still is, Oscar. You know how you're always looking for a new angle; a new device. I mean, think of what an asset Jaime could be to us. And her cover as a tennis pro - I mean, it's perfect! There are places she can get into that I could never get into! And she's got the head for it - she's well adjusted, she's...
  • Oscar Goldman: Steve... Steve... you're in love with her!
  • Steve Austin: What's that got to do with it?
  • Oscar Goldman: Everything! You'd sell your soul for her. You'd do anything; you'd commit yourself to her. But someday... someday, I'm gonna say, "I need her". I'm gonna need her for a job, and you know what you're gonna do, pal? You're gonna change your mind.
  • Steve Austin: No, I won't... I won't change my mind, Oscar, I swear it.
  • Oscar Goldman: Well... what about... uh... Jaime? What does she say?
  • Steve Austin: She's dyin', Oscar. She put her life into my hands. I'm putting it into yours. You're the only one who can help. Will you help me? Please?


  • Steve Austin: How is she?
  • Doctor: It's amazing she's alive at all. Her legs have so many breaks, we still haven't counted them all. The hemorrhaging from her right ear seems to indicate interior damage to the cochlea and corti. And her right arm and shoulder are completely... I'm sorry, Colonel. We'll try to save her, but there's only so much we can do. Maybe someday we'll be able to repair broken bodies like hers.



  • Jaime Sommers: Steve, d'you think I'll be able to play the violin when my hand gets better?
  • Steve Austin: Well, sure.
  • Jaime Sommers: Oh, that's so great, because I have never been able to play it before.
