A plesiosaur can be seen swimming in the pool in the last shot of the library floor. In a later episode of the follow-on series, Jenkins mentions that the largest animal they have in the library is Nessie, a.k.a. the Loch Ness Monster. Nessie believers have speculated that the monster might actually be a plesiosaur. See more »
Datura hallucinations are quite different from what is depicted in the film. Although, seeing someone grow an extra finger, for example, is possible, datura is more along the lines of temporary psychosis. The most common hallucinations would be seeing people who aren't there, hearing voices, having conversations with people who aren't there, and seeing inanimate objects move and float. The character in the film would have never been able to remain so coherent after consuming a fairly large datura tincture. In reality, he would be extremely paranoid, probably running from or grabbing at his hallucinations. See more »
You know, there is one thing you can do for me, though. I've always wanted to see the sunrise again. Will you watch it with me?
[he nods; the scene dissolves to the following morning]
Oh. It's beautiful.
[seeing Flynn is trying not to cry]
I loved you, Flynn. For a little while.
I loved you. Goodbye, Simone.
[tears welling in her eyes]
[they kiss, then she dissolves into dust]

How I love these movies! Sure, there is nothing groundbreaking or revolutionary about them, but the combination of humor (Jane Curtain, Bob Newhart,) Good direction (jonathan Frakes,) and a good solid lead (Noah Wyle,) just makes for enjoyable television. One of the most wonderful things about the series is that it doesn't presume the lowest common denominator on the part of the audience's intellect. It seems to be a series full of historic references that are designed to be aimed at people who can appreciate them.
I very much enjoy the whole setup to the characters themselves. They are each given delightful backstorys that are fun as well as convincing. I have seen this compared to the Indiana Jones movies. While I agree with that in concept, I think there is a certain playfulness in these movies that the more serious...and far more expensive...Indian Jones films lack. My only regret is that these movies only come out every couple of years. I think that it would be great if this were turned into a regular series...or at least a few of them each year. These movies, to me, make up for the wasteland that is most of "normal" television programming.
