Additional DialogueEdit

The episode contains a number of lines of dialogue not found in the Century 21 audio-story. The audio for them was lifted from various classic TV episodes.

  • Jeff saying "OK, away you go, there's very little time." was taken from The Mighty Atom, while "Lady Penelope's in real trouble." is from The Man From MI.5.
  • Scott's line "This is Thunderbird 1 to International Rescue. Have arrived at danger zone." is from The Mighty Atom.
  • Jeff saying "scan the area electronically" was taken from Operation Crash-Dive.
  • Virgil Tracy's lines "Approaching danger zone. About to launch Thunderbird 4." and "OK, Gordon, take up your position." are both from The Man From MI.5, while "Thunderbird 2 calling Penelope. Come in, Penelope." was lifted from The Cham-Cham, and "Do you read me?" is from Danger At Ocean Deep.
  • Scott's line "You've got to locate them within the next two minutes!" is from Terror In New York City, while "Gordon! What's going on? Answer, please!" is a line from Operation Crash-Dive. "Gordon, do you hear me?" is from Terror In New York City again.
  • Gordon saying "All right, no panic." is from Attack of the Alligators!. (The line there is in fact ""All right, Virgil. No panic.")
  • Lady Penelope's line "Right, let's get after him." is from The Duchess Assignment, and "For one thing, you wouldn't succeed, and for another, there's no need." is from Brink Of Disaster.


  • When Parker is driving FAB 1, he is not wearing any hat in the closeups. In the long shots however, he does have a hat on his head
