Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Both Barry and Chillingham historian Richard Marsh are wearing red poppies on their lapels. These are worn in the UK and other Commonwealth countries to celebrate members of those countries' armed forces who died during WWI. Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day) is observeded on the second Sunday of November, though its official date is November 11 since the Armistice of WWI was signed on November 11, 1918. It's not unusual to see people wearing poppies a week before the actual holiday, however, as Barry and Richard do here.

    • Brian joins Robb at the Reveal after the investigation of Mary King's Close, rather than Andy, as is usual.

    • The investigation of Chillingham Castle occurred on November 4-5, 2007, according to the date embedded in the camera footage. The investigation of Mary King's Close took place on July 15-16, 2007.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Robb: (after getting three EVPs at Chillingham) I hope we never get to a point where we're happy with the evidence we have- we're always going to want more evidence.

    • Jason: Robb is an investigator from my Florida TAPS team. His methodology, his leadership, his scepticism, puts him as a perfect candidate to run this Europe team.

    • Andy: The one thing that I take with me everywhere is my debunking skills. That's my thing, I'm a debunker.

    • Andy: I'm really curious to see this- if we do EVP work in Italy, are they going to be answering us in Italian?

    • Robb: As a TAPS family member, I follow the same protocols set out by Jason and Grant. I will dismiss any evidence that I personally cannot prove as paranormal.

    • Donna: I feel very uneasy, and I feel my stomach's getting that butterfly feeling. And it's not because we're in a dark room in a 800 year old castle, either.

    • Andy: I like Robb's style on the EVP. There's personality to his questions, which hopefully that inflection in the voice and that feeling in the questions is able to be picked up on by any spirits who might be hanging out there.
