  • A more deep themed, excellent story-driven look at the aspects of good and evil... through the Raines' eyes. Will Good overcome Evil?!

  • Quotes (13)

    • Raines: I came out here thinking I was gonna be the next Raymond Chandler. I figured, you live here, you write like him. "Dead men are heavier than broken hearts." Jimmy: The Big Sleep. Great book. Raines: You ever read it? Jimmy: Probably not.

    • Raines: Did Jimmy have any problems with anybody? Stoner lady: Last week he... Raines: (Waits for her to continue her statement. When she doesn't, he prompts her) Last week...? Stoner lady: I'm not a mind reader. What about last week? Jimmy: (Leans forward, munching a cookie, interrupting) Is it old age or the weed? Raines: Uh, old age put her on the bicycle, but weed is doing the pedalling. Stoner lady: I don't peddle drugs! I'm a consumer. Now let's get back to the argument with Sergei!

    • Stanley Rastow: (discussing Wally's status as a comic book grader) Graders are like freakin' priests. There's no way they'd certify a fake. Raines: Those comics came in these. (Pulls out the comic cases, tagged from Wally's shop) Rastow: Wally's selling knockoffs? That's impossible. The guy's like a Jedi level nerd. He'd never go to the dark side. Raines: Unless somebody forced him to.

    • Lewis: How'd it go with Samantha today? Raines: We had a breakthough as a matter of fact. My problem is you. Lewis: I ask because I care. And I want a heads up when you snap so I have time to find a place to take a clean shot from. Carolyn: You'll spare me right? You'll need someone to explain the insane logic behind the rampage. Raines: I'm writing a note.

    • Lewis: (Indicating Raines' brown sack) What'd you get for lunch? Raines: Shoes! Lewis: That smart ass attitude is exactly why you'll never get to have a Captain's ulcer. Raines: No, uh a very sweet doper old lady gave these to me. They belonged to her dead husband. She thought they'd fit me. You're an 11 aren't you? Lewis: I'm good for shoes. What I could really use though are some old dead guy pants.
