Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: Quinn is watching the video of the basketball returning from the vortex. The video shows him catching the basketball, then we see a shot of Quinn pressing the fast-forward button until he shows the basketball to the camera and says "and the crowd goes crazy!" The problem is that even though he pressed only the fast-forward button, the video fast-forwards from a point before the basketball came out of the vortex, which is impossible since Quinn never rewound the tape.

Other mistake: Quinn's alarm clock turns on, then about 8 seconds later we see the time change from 7:59 to 8:00. All clock radios turn on when the time changes, or possibly fade in slowly a few minutes before the alarm time, not a few seconds before.

Revealing mistake: The doorway inside Quinn's house on ice-world is lined with snow-covered icicles. Watch as Arturo walks through this doorway; he bumps into the icicles and you can see that it is just a bunch of cotton.

Quinn Michael Mallory: We have a plan. We just don't know what it is yet.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Question: In the pilot episode, the wormhole physically travels to "capture" Quinn and bring him back to his own world, after his very first slide. How did the wormhole know where Quinn was?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Remember at first Quinn's timer is working perfectly (it's only because they slide off the ice age world early that it begins to malfunction) & given Quinn's intellect he would have devised a way that he could open a wormhole near him so he wouldn't be trapped on that world for 29 years.
