  • Quotes (117)

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: (to Detectives Bud Morris and Samantha Baker) Autopsy, two hours. Oh, and one more thing, detectives. Don't believe everything you've heard about me. The truth is much worse.

    • Detective Bud Morris: I'm just... saying, Sam spoke to Elena's father, and he didn't know of anybody she was seeing. But if she did want to see somebody under the radar, that motel would be the perfect place.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: I think he would know. They were living under the same roof.
      Peter Dunlop: (referring to Megan) But even the most observant person in the world can miss what's going on right in front of 'em.

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: How are you and your wife doing?
      Detective Bud Morris: Well, I can't go back, not for a couple of days at least. It's just I'm not ready to give up, you know? And not, not just because I'm Catholic. I loved Jeannie since the day we met. It'll all work out - in the end.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: It's the middle that's the hard part.

    • Dr. Kate Murphey: Your daughter's a lot like you.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: Is that good or bad?
      Dr. Kate Murphey: Amusing.

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: (to Lacey) We do a lot of different things here but they all have the same goal. To find out what happened so that a family can mourn, so that the right person is held accountable. They're not just dead bodies to us, Lace, they're the stories of a life and it's our job to tell it.

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: (arriving at the crime scene and looking around) Liberty Mall. You know what they have there? Peter Dunlop: What? Dr. Megan Hunt: A shark. Peter Dunlop: Why in the world would you know that? Dr. Megan Hunt: Northeast General is a couple blocks from here. Whenever I used to operate, I'd come visit the shark.
      Peter Dunlop: Oh, communing with one of your own, huh?
      Dr. Megan Hunt: I'm kinder and gentler now.
      Peter Dunlop: (sarcastically) Oh, yeah, right. Dr. Megan Hunt: I am!

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: (examining the body) I see multiple cuts and scratches from the bushes, but I don't see anything bad enough to kill him. Peter Dunlop: What are you looking for? Dr. Megan Hunt: A pulse. Detective Samantha Baker: I think it's safe to say by the time you get the call, he's already dead. Dr. Megan Hunt: You don't want to know some of the mistakes I've seen.

    • Judge Joan Hunt: What a lonely world you inhabit in that head of yours. I feel sorry for you, Megan. You don't know what it's like to have friends.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: You know what? You're right. I don't. 'cause after my accident, after I lost my profession, my standing... where were my friends? Mmm? Where were you?
      Judge Joan Hunt: I was right here for you.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: No, you weren't. You were embarrassed. You were too worried about your friends.

    Trivia (6)

    • The motto of the lab is Hic locus est ubi mors gaudet succurrere vitae, which means "This is the place where death rejoices to teach the living".

    • Guest star Christina Hendricks and series regular Geoffrey Arend are real-life husband and wife.

    • This episode appears to have been aired out of order. In a previous episode when Lacey was shooting her school video, she met all of Megan’s co-workers including Peter Dunlop, yet Lacey had to ask who he was when he picked her up.

    • We learn that Peter has three sisters named Libby, Diane and Nancy.

    • The scene at just before Dr. Murphey and D.A. Dan Russell are seen at the restaurant shows different views of Philadelphia, but the last scene before the restaurant is not a view of Philadelphia. It's the Casa Restaurant in Plaza Dorrego, San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    • Megan Hunt's home address is 2900 N 14th St.

    Allusions (4)

    • Dr. Ethan Gross:(bemoaning the fact that he couldn't repair Megan's cell phone) I'm a doctor, not an engineer.

      Most likely an homage to the original Star Trek and the many exclamations by Dr. McCoy that all begin with, "I'm a doctor, not a ..."

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: I used to live in a cul-de-sac like this.

      Dr. Megan Hunt: You couldn't handle a desperate housewife.

      These are references to Dana Delaney's stint on ABC's Desperate Housewives (2007 - 2010) where she played "desperate housewife" Katherine Mayfair.

    • Megan Hunt: To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.

      This is the last line from the sixth stanza of Hallowed Ground (1825) by Scottish poet Thomas Campbell (1777-1844).

    • Tommy Sullivan: By who, the one-armed man?
      This is a reference from the ABC television series The Fugitive (1963-1967) created by Roy Huggins, where the titular character, Dr. Richard Kimble is falsely accused of murdering his wife and is on the run whilst pursuing the real killer, a one-armed man.
