  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (16)

    • Daisy: You do that, you know. You withhold the love. Rube: How can I withhold that which I do not possess?

    • Stan: (at stained glass window, to God) You bastard! Daisy: Stan! Stan: Hypocritical, no-good, backstabbing, judgmental ... You said we're all G-d's children! Except the freaks! Except for me! (trying to throw a hymnal at the glass, to Daisy) You! You do it! Daisy: I can't. I won't. Stan: Just help me! Daisy: I'm sorry. I can't. Stan: Why would God do this to me? Daisy: Do what? Have you die this way? Stan: Have me live this way?! God doesn't love all creatures, Daisy ... Daisy: I think you should pray, Stan. Stan: I will forgive him. But I want him to tell me that he's sorry, first.

    • George: I'm not a Nazi. Delores: You know in here (holds hand to heart) I don't think any of us really is.

    • Sarah: Is that a smile, Susan? I can't read your face anymore, you've botoxed it senseless. Susan: It's surprise, Sarah. I didn't know until just now that a human body can withstand that much lipo. Tell me, is it true that the 10th one is free?

    • Susan: (to Sarah) Doctor Simmons said that your ass fat is putting his daughter through Yale. He is very grateful.

    Notes (2)

    • The song "Nomah's Land" performed by metisse plays during the church scene.

    • Guest Neil Grayston was also a recurring character in another Bryan Fuller show, the short-lived Wonderfalls. Both shows have remarkably similar lead characters.

    Trivia (7)

    • When Theo is climbing the steps from the pool, you can clearly see the nude bathing suit the actor is wearing, as they are supposed to be nudists.

    • Featured Deaths: - Man sliced by his own lawnmower (soul taken by George) - Pre-op transsexual killed by a stiletto heel to the forehead (soul taken by Daisy) - Old guy at a swimming pool slips on a gravelings pee (soul taken by Mason)

    • We learn when George was 10 years old she saw gravelings in a pool but they didn't cause her death. This leaves the viewer with the question if it was predestined for her to be a grim reaper?

    • When Daisy runs out of the church to see who threw the ball through the church window, one of the boys running is wearing the same knit cap w/ flames as the boy reaper George met at the end of season 1.

    • Mason mentions Betty, Theo's wife, and George says "Who's Betty?", with no mention or assumption of the major character Betty who left in Season One.
