  • A man named Tickner is on the run from two mysterious men who kill him after he sends a message to Gabriel. It turns out Tickner had a tape with evidence convicting the mysterious men and their organization of some major murder. Gabriel and Sara recover the tape, are forced to shoot two of the men who are government/Federal types, and go on the run while Sara has visions of a mysterious Boston-accented man talking to her about politics and evil. Sara ends up captured by the conspiracy, who are a mysterious cabal who plan on taking over the U.S. She escapes but the conspiracy lets her live in return for a favor, and returns the captive Gabriel to her.

    • Sara: Who the hell are you? John: (With a Massachusetts accent) Just a memory. Sara: Well, this is just a gun. How did you get in here? John: I was dreaming... of my life. Sara: Damn it, what is going on? John: Fear is stronger than reason, Sara. It is a hopeless emotion that wil always fail you. (Sara stands, pointing her gun at him, he continues to look out the window) Sara: Get down on the floor... and put your hands above your head. John: Look at how bright this world can be. Even with eyes closed, it's blinding. Sara: I could kill you. John: I am already dead, Sara.

    • John: What do you do, Sara... when you're not entertaining ghosts?
      Sara: I'm a cop.
      John: Why?
      Sara: Because I wanna help others. Because I hate bullies.
      John: The rights of all men are dimished when the rights of any man are denied.
      Sara: I agree.
      John: Thank you.
      Sara: Why thank me?
      John: Because, I, uh... I said that... There is an eloquence and valor to public service. To bearing the standard for the poor and the victimized. To assauge the incongruity in law and justice which persecute the less fortunate.

    • (After learning the Man's name is John) Sara: When did you live, John? John: I was born in 1917. Died in my 40's. Sara: What did you do? John: I was a, uh...politician. Sara: Hmm, sorry to hear that. John: Public service is nothing to be ashamed of. It meant something once, to be your brother's keeper, to take an interest in the welfare of others, to lend a hand.

    • John: You vote? Sara: Not...really. John: Why not? Sara: My vote doesn't matter. John: Tell that to those who are buried in the hallowed ground at Arlington. To those who were never found... Sara: I'm not the only one. I mean, no one believes that real change is possible anymore, that good triumphs over evil. Se we kind oflet the government just...be. John: Our forefathers believed that every citizen should have a voice. Now you're telling me that's no longer so. (John rubs his brow) That means they won. Sara: Uh, who? John: The ones who killed me.

    • John: The consequences of immoral silence, to ignore what we knew is true but are too afraid to admit, therein lies unatonable sin. The resurrection of courageous faith which was once this nation's seal lies in the hearts, minds, and actions of this country's youth. Of, for, and by the people. So you see, Sara, without you, and I mean your generation...nothing is possible. Without your spiritual requiem, I died in vain...a forgotten cinder buried among the ashes of history...along with all the others.
