    • Aidan: Hey, you know, there's a better way to do this.
      Josh: Do what? Be a better monster? No, thank you.
      Aidan: Or dignified monster.
      Josh: You're joking, right?
      Aidan: You shouldn't have to run into the woods every time that you turn.
      Josh: Pretty sure the gang down at the Econolodge wouldn't take too kindly to me doing it there. So...
      Aidan: So what about what I said? What about the apartment?
      Josh: Yeah, it's perfect. That's a great idea. Let's do that. Yeah, it's perfect. We'll, we'll, uh, we'll have full moon parties. We'll invite the neighbors over and eat them.

    • Aidan: (voiceover) We're all hiding something, aren't we? From the moment we wake, look in that mirror, all we do is spin our little lies. Suck in that gut, color that hair, twist off that wedding ring. And why not? What's the penalty? What are the consequences, really? "I'm only human," you say, and all is forgiven. But what if some cruel twist of fate makes you something else, something other? Who forgives you then? Every human spends a night or two on the dark side and regrets it. But what if you only exist on the dark side? We just want the same things that you do: a chance at life, at love. We're not so different in that way. And so we try and sometimes fail. But when you're something other, a monster, the consequences are worse. Much worse. You wake up from your nightmares. We don't.

    • Danny: Look, you two seem alright, I know the place isn't perfect, but it's- it's a great place, for a couple, it really is.
      Josh: What?!?
      Danny: What?
      Aidan: It's ok.

    • Josh: And for the record, reminding me I haven't had sex in the last two years? (Cara shows up) A... toootal... lie.

    • Josh: You know, I was engaged.
      Sally: You were?!?
      Josh: Yeah. I'll try not to take offense to your extreme shock.
      Sally: (laughs) And... she doesn't know?
      Josh: What'd I say? I'm- I'm a w- ... what? (pauses) It's a miracle I got her to love me once.

    • Josh: I'm... sorry. I guess it takes that "he doesn't even know I'm alive" thing to a whole new level.
      Sally: Yeah.

    • Josh: (referring to Danny) Listen, if he comes... (weighing his words) I think... that... Sally... should stay upstairs.
      Sally: And I think you don't get a say.
      Aidan: (nods agreeing with Josh)
      Sally: On the stairs! (begging) At least!
      Josh: (sighs) Top of the stairs. (Sally rushes out) And NO PEEKING!

    • Emily: What do you mean "he has a condition"?
      Aidan: He's your brother, you should ask him yourself.
      Emily: My brother had a nervous breakdown and ran away from his family two years ago, he doesn't tell me anything... If he's in some kind of trouble...
      Aidan: No no no no, no, he's a good guy, he's a great roommate. He's dealing with some stuff, yeah, but... aren't we all?

    Trivia (9)

    • Sam Witwer's character takes his nickname of "Aidan" from Aidan Turner, the actor who plays Mitchell, his counterpart in the original British series.

    • How can Aidan see his reflection in the glass at the shop if Vampires have no reflections?

    • Sally's gravestone reveals that she was 24-years-old when she died.

    • Goof: When Sally steps off of the front steps into the street for the first time, she is wearing black shoes. But in the graveyard-scene, she is suddenly wearing white shoes, although her outfit is supposed to be constant since it is what she was wearing when she died.

    • In the scene after the Dutch examine the werewolves, when Josh is locked in the cage, he goes from wearing a blue hoodie, to just a flannel shirt, back to the hoodie and again to the flannel, when the hoodie vanishes altogether.

    • Goof: During the Aidan/Bishop conversation in 1975 Bishop says "This is America". Then later when Celine is captured by Bishop and she makes for the door, he says "I hope you're not going to the station, or say... Canada?"

      They are in Montreal.

    • Goof: When Josh says to Aidan "If we video tape Sally and show it to someone, they'll be dead in three days" he's referencing the American adaption of The Ring but incorrectly. In the film those who watched the cursed videotape died in SEVEN days.

    • Goof: In this episode, Aidan opens his locker at work and there is a mirror on the door, that clearly shows his reflection.
