  • show Description
  • Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) is a strong-willed mother of three, a devoted wife who begins to suspect that she can talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams, and read people's thoughts. Fearing for her mental health, she turns to her husband Joe (Jake Weber), an aerospace engineer, for support. Joe slowly comes to believe that what his wife is telling him just might be true. The real challenge is convincing her boss, D.A. Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) -- and the other doubters in the criminal justice system -- that her psychic abilities can give them the upper hand when it comes to solving violent and horrific crimes whose mysteries often reside with those who live beyond the grave. Sofia Vassilieva and Maria Lark also star as Ariel and Bridgette, the eldest two DuBois children. David Cubitt stars as Detective Lee Scanlon, who Allison often works with on cases. As Allison and Joe's daughters continue to grow, their psychic abilities show more and more development, keeping the DuBois' home life busy and interesting. Through it all, Joe and Allison continue to balance their hectic home life with their professional lives -- which seem to become more and more stressful as time goes on.moreless

  • Quotes (387)

    • Allison: Suffice it to say I’m apparently either a little psychic or a little psycho. Devalos: Oh.

    • Captain Push: Well, how’d you find out about that kiss? Allison: I made it up. Captain Push: Excuse me, lady? Allison: Oh, put your bug eyes back in your head. I said, I made it up. I took a shot. I figured he’d either be so offended, he’d talk, or he’d be so embarrassed, he’d talk. So either way… Captain Push: This is not good for my heart.

    • Allison: (to the 17-year-old) You’re so pretty. You look like an ad for milk or toothpaste. But when I listen to your soul, all I hear are the sounds of small animals being tortured and children crying.

    • Allison: I am too sensitive to practice law, but I can’t do any good with all my effin’ sensitivity ‘cause I’m not sensitive enough to know that it’s gonna freaking rain! Joe: Allison… Allison: Shut up and drive.

    • Captain Push: (to Allison about his heart operation) The doctor cracked me open like a walnut. He told me if I didn’t calm my life down, the next time I complained of chest pains, he wouldn’t bother with a needle, thread, or latex gloves. He’d just walk me over to the autopsy room and have me pick out which drawer I wanted to be kept in.

    • Allison: (on the phone) I gotta go. It’s Captain Happy at the door. Joe: At this hour? At your hotel room? Is there something you want to tell me? Something I need to know? Allison: Yes, I am leaving you for the angriest, ugliest man on the planet. Now go to bed. I love you. (hangs up)

    • Captain Push: Let me give you somethin’ to think about. If I embrace this nonsensical hunch of yours and waste valuable public resources by havin’ my 30-odd men here use the better part of an afternoon diggin’ up this yard and we don’t find the body, then I figure that makes you an accessory after the fact. Aiding and abetting a child molester by providing us with false leads. And I figure that’s good for three years hard time. Now, you ponder that for a second and then you tell me one more time where you think this body is. Allison: You’re standing on it.

    • Allison: All I know is, the body is here now. Captain Push: You know that, huh? Allison: Yeah. Captain Push: And how do you know? You just get, what? A feelin’? Like an itch or somethin’? Or maybe you seen a secret unrecovered body map somewhere that we missed. Or, hell, maybe you’re online with the folks at www.i’m-buried.com. I’m talking to you! Allison: No. You’re yelling at me. And trying to intimidate me. And attempting to ridicule me. And you really ought to calm down. We both know that your heart can’t take this kind of agitation.

    • Goof: The series is supposedly set in Phoenix. However, the intersection of Chaparral and Miller Road (where Allison claims to be driving) is actually a residential area of Scottsdale, not the partly industrial area with a skyscraper in the background that's shown in the episode.
