  • Quotes (17)

    • Rube: Life and death can be real simple. You just gotta do what I tell ya. (Indicates corpse lying on table in morgue.) Cop a feel before this guy unspools.

    • George: Correct me if I'm wrong, but mission accomplished! Rube: You're wrong. That was me correcting you.

    • George (V/O): My name is George Lass. I died when I was 18 years old. I take souls for a living, and these are the days of my afterlife.

    • George (V/O): I became a reaper, lifting the souls I was told to take. It's fucking weird.

    • George (V/O): I can take the souls of people about to die... but I can't open my front door. It would probably help to have a key, but when you're squatting in some dead guy's apartment, you can't expect a mint on your pillow.

    • Rube: You like spaghetti, George? I like spaghetti. I like board games. I like grabbing a trifecta with that long shot on top. In American horse racing terminology, a trifecta is an exotic parimutuel bet in which the bettor must predict which horses will finish first, second, and third in exact order.

    • Betty: We are on the flirting edge of nowhere with 10 miles to go, and I am wearing my Blahniks. Do you know how many people had to die for me to get these? Manolo Blahnik (born November 27, 1942) is a Spanish fashion designer and an eponymous fashion label, one of the world's most prominent in women's shoes. His shoes, now sold in stores bearing his name around the world, range in price from about $500 to $2500. They often come with stiletto heels, which can reach as high as five and a half inches, and embellishments like beads or ribbons.

    • Age 27: We learn that Mason died in 1966, in search of a permanent high when he was 27. The age is a possible allusion to Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970), Janis Joplin (1943-1970), and Jim Morrison (1943-1971), who all died at the age of 27. Janis died from heroine, Hendrix died from sleeping pills and Morrison died from unknown causes; all of them were popular high seekers in the late 1960s.

    • Franken Fruity Doll: The doll that George buys at her mother's yard sale is based on the advertising character for Franken Berry, a strawberry-flavored cereal introduced by the General Mills corporation in 1971.
      It was part of a line of monster-themed cereals which included Count Chocula, Boo Berry, Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy.

    • Episode Title: Dead Girl Walking The title is play on words based on the 1995 movie "Dead Man Walking".
