At minute 15 there is a brief shot of ID-information, the bulk of the text is in Dutch. The height of the character is mentioned in the imperial system, in Holland we use the Metric system. Furthermore, all headings include De (the) which is uncommon on ID cards etc. Another translation error is "De hoogte", which should be "Lengte" (length), and on the bottom the status of "Current" is translated as "Stroom", which is actually current in the electrical sort (measured in Amps). That one should read "Geldig" if pertaining to the status of the document. See more »


Sydney: I'm not going to let anything happen to you.
Will: I know that. Wait, what did you think I was asking?
Sydney: I was just being supportive in case you thought you might...
Will: Die?
Sydney: It's not important. What were you asking?
Will: I was asking you to be my best man.
Sydney: Really?
Will: Yeah... Before I realized you have so little faith in me. You thought I was going to die?
Sydney: No! . . You want me to be your best man?
Will: Well I did. Now I'm not so sure.

Alias's X File (The Silliest 10 Events) !
16 July 2008 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

****This Comment May Contain Spoilers about The Last 4 Seasons****

The 2 minor goofs about the scene of Moscow & the bulk of the ID-information's text (which you can read at the goofs' page) made me remember more big & important holes had been done during the whole previous episodes :

_The trick of clinging to the big magnet by a piece of iron while the magnet is not on (after the fall of the car) is such a dull trick because it had no magnetic power at all in that very moment !! (Season 5) _(Sydney) was working for the APO and the CIA while her pregnancy, well, the real silly remark here is : did the CIA pay her more or less money to work in this condition ?! (Season 5) _Auntie (Elena Derevko) is going to blow up one Russian city to takeover the world, OK, but the thing is that she was executing the evil plan while she was there ! Without an exit !! So she was destroying the city including herself ?!! (Season 4) _The terrorists of the world are merry people having their desks in nightclubs ! (All the Seasons) _The whole of APO is paralyzed by bacterial virus while (Sydney) in a coffin under the ground in Cuba as (Marshall) is the ONLY agent who could rescue her, this is good for sure as pure thrill until you ask : doesn't the APO have any other agents outside it beside the clumsy (Marshall) ?!, or doesn't the whole CIA have any other in Cuba itself ?! (Season 4) _(Francie)'s double lives in (Sydney)'s house for a long time ?!! Regarding that the program of cloning can make a double who has the same image not by all means the same memory. So how the heck could that double manage to be the same person for all of that time without even one mistake ?! It's just the intimation of not drinking a café which uncovered her ! (Season 2) _(Sydney), (Nadia) and (Rachel) all the three were agents for one intelligence agency then discovered that they were working for the other side !! "Too much of something is bad enough" said by (Spice Girls) ! (Season: 1, 4, 5) _(Jack Bristow) is an agent for the CIA who, one day, his wife had been discovered as a spy for the other side.. And he still working for the CIA ???! He must be the stupidest agent in history to have a spy right in his home for all of those years, or the intelligence must be stupid to have him after that, or maybe we are the most stupid to believe something like that or at least not to complain about it !! (Season 1) _Dear Rambaldi made such a genuine devise which can, by the code of DNA (!!), define the whereabouts of the person who has it, whatever his or her place in the world ??!! (and that was the way how they found Nadia !), this is simply one of the most foolish sci-fi's ideas I have ever seen; actually it's easy to write such a crap instead of making it coherent ! (Season 3) _(Sloane) the most wanted, most dangerous, terrorist on earth became Mr. world peace, an agent for the CIA, and the head of its black operations ?!!!!!!!!! (Season 3, 4).

It's so silly I know. I mean to bring it up like this. Because don't you ever think while watching Alias. It's all about having a good time to ease up on your brain. But to tell you the painful truth : Alias sometimes, and as one show I loved once, made itself too silly to watch !
