  • Quotes (13)

    • Natalia: I guess you just... you never know when death is coming. Horatio: No, we don't, and that's why we shouldn't live in fear of it.

    • Ryan:You know, all this bad stuff started happening when I touched that coffin. You don't think that that's a coincidence,do you? You know, like Alissa was cursed by it and now I am? Calleigh: Don't be silly.I belive in science. Ryan: Yeah, I do too, I'm just, I'm just saying it's kinda weird. Calleigh: It's not weird. We're just here to pick up Alissas computer. It's right here, we'll shut it down, bring it to the lab, and have Cooper analyse the harddrive. It's very simple. ( The computers goes up in flames on it's own) Ryan: Coincidence?

    • Calleigh: You see, I don't think this place is so scary in the daytime, do you? Ryan: What? Nah, come on, I wasn't scared. Calleigh: You know I listened to the entire tape, don't you, Ryan? Ryan: So, there was an accomplice here? Calleigh (laughs): Way to change the subject.

    • Cooper (about putting together the non-melted components of the victim's computer): So I frankensteined this little contraption together you see before your eyes. It's my little monster. It's kinda fitting for the case, don't you think? Calleigh: Yes, it's very cute. In fact, I can't believe you put all of this together today; it took me a week to set up my TiVo.

    • Eric (after Ryan falls onto a dead body): You okay Wolfe? Ryan: I hate this case. Eric: Yeah tell me about it.
