- [opening screen, small text on black] Opening Quote: You have conquered and I yield. Opening Quote: Yet henceforward art thou also dead - dead to the World, to Heaven, and to Hope!

[Kate and Gina are kneeling down to sweep up the large mirror that suddenly broke during dinner while the men of the family stand by and watch them] Kate Coleman: [Quietly to Gina] I guess that's seven years back luck then. Gina McVey: [mischievously whispering] I thought it was seven years bad sex. Kate Coleman: No, I've already had that. Daniel McVey: Oi, I heard that. Kate Coleman: [smiling up at her husband] Baby, that was before I met you. [John, Gina and Kate's father, is apparently oblivious to the entire by-play that's occurred and preoccupied by the broken mirror] John McVey: Do you think we can fix it?
[Gina is studying a set of chest X-rays in her office when Jim approaches and looks at them as well] Gina McVey: Who are these for? Jim: Dr. Waters. Gina McVey: Interesting. Jim: What? Gina McVey: Well, do you notice anything? Jim: They're back to front? Gina McVey: No, look. Left and right tags. Jim: The heart's on the right side of the body? Gina McVey: [Nodding] Dextrocardia with situs inversus. It's not uncommon, but it's pretty rare. One in every thousand.
[Dr. Zachman is questioning Gina about her boyfriend, Stephan] Dr. Robert Zachman: And you live together? [Gina slightly shakes her head as if she's disturbed and unsettled by the question] Dr. Robert Zachman: What are you holding back, Gina? Tell me what's wrong. Gina McVey: I don't think Stephan is my boyfriend. Dr. Robert Zachman: Well, we all have different relationships until we find the one. Gina McVey: No, he looks like him, but he's not him. Dr. Robert Zachman: Right. When did you first notice this change? After the accident? Do you think then, that maybe he really is Stephan and that you're just still confused about the events surrounding the crash? Gina McVey: Dr. Zachman... Dr. Robert Zachman: Robert, please. Gina McVey: Robert. The man in the apartment is not my boyfriend. [Light bulb in lamp suddenly flickers and goes out] Dr. Robert Zachman: I'll just change that. Sorry [Dr. Zachman gets up and replaces bulb while Gina shudders as she recalls various memory flashes] Dr. Robert Zachman: Gina, have you ever heard about Capgras Syndrome? [She shakes her head] Dr. Robert Zachman: It's a rare disorder, in which a person holds a belief that an acquaintance, usually a close family member or a spouse, has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor. The condition is most cases is a direct result of brain lesion. With your permission, I would like to readmit you to hospital and get Dr. Kenric to do some further tests.
- The inventive spelling of the title reads somewhat silly in Norwegian and Danish since the Ø in broken is a letter in the alphabet in these languages and sounds like the "u" in "burden". In addition "brøken" is a Norwegian word meaning "the fraction".
