Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Nitpick: When Vincent is going to rescue Catherine he runs through the tunnels and is seen riding the top of a subway train. These are the same scenes that are in the first episode. So is the scene of Vincent climbing up a building and looking out at the city.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Micha: Without your help, those punks would have killed us all.
      Vincent: All?
      Micha: The other tenants. Those who refuse to be chased from their apartments.
      Vincent: These men that did this, why do they try to drive you from your homes?
      Micha: Because we're old, and there's a dollar to be made.

    • Elliot: I do love this city. The thing is, you can't walk a block without seeing somebody - something that absolutely knocks you out, stuns you.
      Catherine: The good, the bad and the utterly absurd.
      Elliot: Yeah. Yeah, and it's constantly changing, constantly transforming itself, reinventing itself. It's unbelievable- it's always expanding.

    • Father: Vincent, what weighs so heavy? Please? Tell me.
      Vincent: She met a man. She's falling in love.
      Father: Let her... Let her fall in love, Vincent.
      Vincent: My mind tells me to rejoice for her, that she deserves the happiness. But my heart... is dying. I'm poisoned by feelings I've never felt before...Father, it hurts.
      Father: I've always dreaded this moment for you and I suppose I've always known it would come. The day when your heart would lead you to long for a life that can never be, Vincent.
      Vincent: Yes, a life that can never be...

    • Vincent: You have a generous heart, Catherine.
      Catherine: Something I learned from you.
      Vincent: No. It can't be taught. It's from the soul. And you have so much to give.
      Catherine: It's all still very new... Sometimes, I wonder, how all those little pieces will ever fit together again.
      Vincent: Follow your heart, Catherine. Follow your heart. You must.

    • Elliot: I'm Elliot Burch.
      Catherine: Of course, you are.

    • Elliot: (to reporter) Can you put a price tag on magic? The true value of great art lies in its ability to influence and enhance the quality of humanity. And contrary to popular opnion, I believe New Yorkers still qualify.
