    • Eleanor: Congratulations, Nathan. Now you get to come back with me for an MRI. Nathan: Another? Lucky number nine. Eleanor: Yeah, cheer up. Tenth one's free. (to Audrey) He's a regular.

    • Audrey: It's time to step up, Conrad.
      Conrad: How's that?
      Audrey: I could put her in jail but what would that solve? If Marian lets her emotions get out of control again, a lot of people could get hurt. Only three of us know what she can do, but only one of us has a real chance of making her happy. She needs somebody to keep her safe. But most importantly, calmed.

    • Audrey: Oh, oh no, my cell phone, oh, crap it's...
      Duke: Oh yeah, it's toast. But I uh, got you another one. (shows her a pink cell phone)
      Audrey: A Princess phone? Seriously?
      Duke: You really need to work on your thank yous.

    • Agent Howard: (seeing Audrey's barren home) It's impressive how little you've done with... so little. Audrey: That's what I do with all the vacation time that I don't get. Hit a bunch of outlet stores and furniture shop with all the guys that I don't meet.

    • (watching Audrey's car go off a cliff)
      Nathan: Shame about the car.
      Audrey: Eh, it's a rental.

    • Audrey: FBI! Who are you? Nathan: Haven PD. Who are you? Audrey: F-B-I. Are you deaf?

    • Nathan: Can I give you a ride somewhere? Audrey: Yeah, I guess it's friendlier than if I commandeer your vehicle. Nathan: Probably less paperwork, too.

    • Chief Wournos: Oh, it's the FBI. Well, is this one of those situations where you're here claiming to help, but you're really just here to step on my toes? Audrey: Not in these shoes.

    Notes (205)

    • As with many pilots, there are no opening series credits. After the teaser, the show picks up with the action while showing the main stars and opening credit crew.

    • Injoke: The Teagues' office address is 217 King Street, a subtle nod to Stephen King, author of The Colorado Kid. Further, 217 is the room number in The Shining of the haunted room that Danny Torrance is told to avoid.

    • Music: Love Will Keep Us Together (The Captain and Tennille)

    • The only similarities to Stephen King's novella, "The Colorado Kid" are that one of the two resident newspapermen has the name Vince Teagues, his partner has the first name David, and that the "Colorado Kid" murder seen in the photograph is similar to one in the novella: a body slumped against a trash can, and the corpse is eventually nicknamed "The Colorado Kid."

    • Injoke: The opening credits feature an old issue of the Herald which says, "The most Revered Flagg to elaborate on the proper devices & most godly mechanisms for the examination and discovery of wytches." This references Stephen King's character Randall Flagg, who first appeared in The Stand, and since became one of the central villains of the Dark Tower series.

    Trivia (20)

    • You can't really tell that Audrey turns on the electric paddles before she shocks the doctor. The machine needs to charge and makes a humming sound before it discharges electricity. Plus, no sound is heard from the machine beforehand.

    • As they examine the hieroglyph at the scene of the second attack, Audrey says she saw it "at the site of the two other attacks." At this point there has only been one other attack, on T.R. Holt at the beginning of the episode.

    • Since anything that happens to the sketch happens to the object portrayed, the vase in Vickie's studio can't be intact when Audrey and Nathan arrive. The person who took the sketches dropped the vase sketch on the floor, which would have broken it at that time.

    • Trivia: The Chief's first name is identified as Garland. Audrey and Nathan's middle names are Prudence and Thaddeus, respectively.

    • The sign on the chief's door as Nathan goes in and finds Driscoll waiting for him says "Wuornos." However, the official website, press releases, and closed captioning all list the last name as "Wournos."

    • When Halsey is killed by the fork lift and propeller working together, Nathan checks him for a pulse. Nathan can't feel, so he wouldn't be able to tell if the man had a pulse.

    • When Audrey drives away the first time, her license plate reads 6516NU. However, during the second time she drives away and arrives at the school, her license plate reads 1924RZ.

    • This episode marks the reappearance of Dr. Lucassi. He was originally seen in the episode "Harmony" as the doctor of the Murray Q. Frederikson Psychiatric Facility. The "Freddy" was built in honor of Murray Frederikson, who suddenly decided he could breathe like a fish and disappeared under the sea, like the Troubled family in this episode.

    • Nathan: And you run around in the Mystery Machine...
      This is a reference to the 1969 Saturday morning cartoon Scooby Doo, Where Are You? which aired on CBS. The show dealt with a group of four high school students, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and their dog Scooby Doo, a loveable but cowardly Great Dane, who formed Mystery, Inc. The group was interested in the mysterious and supernatural and traveled around the area in a bright green van called the Mystery Machine. Over the decades the cartoon has had additional episodes and even hour long movies produced; finally culminating in the live action film Scooby Doo (2002) and a sequel Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) which starred Freddy Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

    • Duke: Does she know you're not a real boy? Referencing Pinocchio, the fictional character created by Carlo Collodi in his 1883 story The Adventures of Pinocchio. Collodi's story tells of Gepetto, a woodcarver who makes a wooden puppet in lieu of a son and names it Pinocchio. Pinocchio aspires to be a real boy and runs away. The character is best known for the fact that his nose grows when he tells a lie, as alluded to in Duke's gesture toward his nose while making the comment.

    • Audrey: I've seen this movie. It doesn't end well. Referencing Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds (1963), based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier. In the movie, the coastal town of Bedoga Bay is stricken by a plague of homicidal birds that turn against mankind.

    • Duke: So I think I'm going to stick with you and Scooby here. Referencing the Hanna-Barbera star Scooby-Doo, the canine star of several animated series who's teamed with the gang of Mystery Inc. in solving various cases involving ghosts and monsters.

    • Nathan: Like an evil Dr. Dolittle. Referencing Dr. John Dolittle, the fictional character created by Hugh Lofting in a series of twelve books. Dolittle, a veterinarian, has the ability to speak to animals. The most recent film series updated the character from the early 19th century to the modern day, and featured Eddie Murphy in the first two movies before the character is succeeded by his daughter, Maya Doolittle.

    • Emily: Taste. The final frontier. Referencing the opening narration of the Star Trek series. The full line of dialogue, spoken by William Shatner, is "Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before." The line was also used in Star Trek: The Next Generation where it was amended to be non-gender exclusive, and said the goal was to boldly go where "no one" has gone before.

    • Audrey: Anyway, he didn't Hulk out on us. Referencing the long-time Marvel superhero (and occasional super-villain), who first appeared in Incredible Hulk #1 (May 1962). Scientist Bruce Banner transforms into his monstrous green-skinned super-strong alter-ego when he becomes angry or in various other circumstances.

    • Chief: So let's put the Hardy Boys with the Bickersons.
      Referencing the well-known boy's mystery series penned by several writers under the pen name of Franklin W. Dixon, and featured in at least five different TV incarnations. The Hardy Boys are the brothers Frank and Joe, typically amateur detectives who solve crimes and help out their father. The Bickersons was a NBC radio series that later became a television series that ran briefly in 1951 on CBS. John and Blanche Bickerson couldn't stand each other, and spent most of their time constantly insulting each other.
