  • Trivia

    • Goofs: Did you notice how remarkably dry Vincent is after leaping onto the trunk of the submerged car and ripping the trunk off and carrying a sopping wet Catherine onto the shore? After the Watcher's first phone call, Catherine hangs up the phone, but it falls off onto the floor. But when she is putting on her coat, it rings again- in a mysterious way it is back on the cradle.

  • Quotes

    • (On the balcony, looking out over the city)
      Catherine: Someone else could be watching.
      Vincent: Perhaps.
      Catherine: We can't be afraid, can we? We can't let that stop us.
      Vincent: This balcony is our window. Our vantage point. And, perhaps Catherine, someone behind one of those lights is watching, and smiling on us.
      Catherine: Perhaps they are.

    • (Catherine rushes to Vincent on the balcony and they embrace)
      Vincent: I felt you go. I felt you go.
      Catherine: Hold me tighter. Tighter!

    • (To Jenny, who is insisting on staying with Catherine)
      Catherine: You don't have to stay.
      Jenny: I know, but I am.
      Catherine: Jen...
      Jenny: No, I'm staying.
      Catherine: (getting annoyed) Jen! (pauses) I'm not going to be alone.
      Jenny: Oh. (looks surprised) You're not going to be alone? (smiles) Well, what am I doing here? (walks towards door).

    • (Holding Catherine after pulling her out of the lake)
      Vincent: Oh, Catherine.
      Catherine: I love you.

    • Catherine: Vincent, you have to stay away.
      Vincent: I feel your fear, how do I leave you alone with that?
      Catherine: Because I can handle fear. But, if something happened to you... (They embrace)
      Vincent: Come Below tonight.
      Catherine: I can't. I can't let him do that to me. I can't. We're alone in this.

    • (Below, after receiving phone call from the watcher)
      Catherine: Vincent, the balcony isn't safe anymore. That was the only part of my world that belonged to us. I will not let him destroy it.

    • (Greeting Vincent at the balcony door)
      Catherine: Two years ago, tonight. (they exchange glances) I thought maybe we could go inside, by the fire. It's warm. (phone rings, interrupting)

    • (Voice over at beginning of show)
      Vincent: I look out on this city of night, and tonight I am one with it. I see the pathways and the cross roads, the rush of possibilities, and I feel every point of light that is a life, each with its wonders and terrors. I see how, in a single night, a world can be transformed. How, in one terrifying and wondrous moment, my world was transformed. On a night as dark and glittering as this, two years ago, I found Catherine.
