  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (256)

    • Mick: In my line of work, sometimes I'm hired and sometimes I take cases because I can go places and do things that others won't. There's a lot of dark alleys in this world, and I've been down them all.

    • Mick: (voiceover) They say there's someone out there for everyone. But what if that person was born in a different time? What if you never would've met but for one horrific twist of fate? And what if you finally found her and you knew there was no way? What then?

    • Mick: (voiceover) Sixty years is a long time to live in darkness. A long time to deny yourself the touch of another. But you do it. You do it because you just can't bear the thought of seeing yourself as a monster in someone else's eyes.

    • Mick: What have you done to me?! Coraline: I made you immortal. Mick: No. You've made me a monster.

    • Beth: You were at the other crime scene. Mick: Yeah. Beth: Do you have some connection with the case or are you just a crime scene junkie?

    • Josef: The challenge for our kind is to continually find new reasons to live. Mick: And what are you living for after all this time? Josef: The best reason of all, my friend. Love.

    • Mick: There are a lot of misconceptions about vampires. Garlic and holy water don't do jack. And crucifixes? Come on. You can spot a vampire if you know what to look for, though. The dead don't give off body heat.

    • Mick: (voiceover) What do you do when what you want most and what you fear most are the same thing? What then? Live long enough and the past always catches you.

    Trivia (48)

    • In the final scene when Mick and Beth are looking into each other's eyes, Alex O'Loughlin (Mick) nods slightly, probably to signal that they should embrace each other.

    • Josef says that Mick is 90 years old, but when Beth asks Mick how old he is he says that he is 85 years old.

    • Mick likes type A+ blood and Guillermo likes type O+ blood.

    • When Mick is "wanted" after Lee Jay shoots himself, he rings Beth's doorbell several times. This is the only episode anyone rings her doorbell -- everyone knocks in later episodes. Also, there is no apartment number on Beth's door or the door across the hall until the 5th episode.

    • Goof When Mick is shot with the silver buckshot he is first shot in the shoulder however when he falls you can clearly see gunshot wounds on his back. They disappear in the next scene when he is struggling to get back to his feet.

    • Goof: Mick tells Beth that he gets most of his blood from the blood bank. In the first episode Mick says he gets his blood from his contact in the coroner's office.

    • In this episode Mick said he was turning 85 this November. That means he was born in November 1922.

    • In the scene where Beth is sitting at the computer, as Marissa walks up to her it can clearly be seen that she's just touching the keys of the keyboard, not actually pressing them down to type something.
