  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • The Devil: No good deed goes unpunished. You can't afford to be shelling out money to vagrants on the street. Why won't you stop trying to be so good? You think it's going to make your job any easier?
      Stone: It wasn't supposed to be easy.

    • Tailor: What the hell happened to this (coat)?
      Stone: What happened? Erm, mainly gunshots. Er, a bamboo stake, went in here, came out there. This slash. Er, lets not go there. Er, just many coffee stains. You good with coffee stains?
      Tailor: You were wearing this?

    • Jimmy J.: Who are you? Some kind of Nazi hunter?
      Stone: If I told you, I'd have to kill you.
      Jimmy J.: Awesome.

    • Martin Benedict: Erect no gravestone to his memory. Just let a rose blossom each year for his sake. For it is Orpheus, wherever he has passed through this, or that. We do not need to look.

    • Martin Benedict: You have to recognize the day of reckoning when it comes. Mine is here. What I really want is to earn my own forgiveness and I can't. No matter what I do, it will never be enough.

    • The Devil: Nobody beats the Devil. Are you listening? Did you hear what I said, Mr. Stone? Nobody beats the Devil.
      Stone: So you keep telling me. Go to Hell.

    • (Stone meets the Devil in an elevator)
      Stone: Going up or down?
      The Devil: Guess.

  • Notes

    • Fox didn't air the episodes in production order, so the opening scene with Stone getting his coat fixed refers back to damage done to it in the episode "Poem," which actually aired later on.

  • Allusions

    • Ezekiel: Do you remember the Reggie Bar?

      The candy bar that Ezekiel searches for and eventually enjoys at the end of the episode was named after professional baseball player Reggie Jackson. The Reggie Bar was introduced in 1978 when Reggie began playing for the Yankees.

    • Martin Benedict: Erect no gravestone to his memory.
      This line comes from the poem The Sonnets to Orpheus by the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke.
