  • QUOTES (4)

    • Jason: (in CC's room) Well, you know what? I'm just going to chill out in here for a few.
      Grant: Hang on. (Grant grabs a teddy bear and gives it to Jason)
      Jason: Thanks.
      Grant: You're welcome!

    • Grant: (when Steve shows him video footage of an "orb") That was a UFO. We don't deal with UFOs.
      Steve: You're right, I don't even know why I showed you that. I hate coming in here with absolutely nothing.

    • Steve: Got a long time to go so uh, hope we don't get hemorrhoids.
      Andy: Are you really concerned about that?
      Steve: If we sit here ten hours straight it's hemorrhoid city man.
      Andy: Alright...

    • Grant: We use a lot of different tools on a investigation. But, I think the number one tool we use is the human mind. Because 80% of the time there is nothing paranormal there and you got to use your brain to figure that out.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode is listed under the title "Beechwood Mansion And Garden State" at the official Ghost Hunters website.

    • This marks the first appearance of Dave Tango, but he is not yet a member of TAPS, but rather as the Co-Founder of his own group, the Central New Jersey Paranormal Society.

    • No paranormal evidence is recorded at Astor Beechwood Mansion but at Roselle Park home Jason & Grant heard movement in the 2nd floor of the house which was caught on audio. When investigated they found that there was no one upstairs that could have created the sounds they heard. This then lead Jason & Grant to the conclusion the house was indeed haunted.
