Leonard, I hear you've grown quite a mustache since I've been away!
Sam states that the Tripolidine will explode and 'level an entire town.' When it finally explodes, it barely blows up the back of the truck. However, there is no reason why Sam would know exactly how explosive the bottle of Tripolidine was, as he had never seen it explode himself and was merely repeating what he'd been told.
Two versions of this movie exist. In the cut shown on "Mystery Science Theater 3000", background information from the pilot film of "Gemini Man" (episodes of which were combined for this movie) are presented via opening narration and stills, and later flashbacks. In the alternate version (shown at the 2000 Gateway Media Convention in St. Louis), the narration and flashbacks are not present. Instead, the movie opens with a condensed version of the Gemini Man's "origin" from the first part of the pilot film. Also, some of the dubbed-in lines linking the two original episodes this movie is taken from differ in each version.
