    • Eli: Ok, I'm guessing from the way it smells he's not asleep.

    • Ned: Cool, you're the guy that hears ghosts.
      Eli: You're Delia's kid.
      Ned: The one that hears about ghosts. It's wild how all of a sudden you got the gift.
      Eli: Well don't get too excited, there was a catch...I had to die first.

    • Melinda: Sounds like you have a nuisance ghost. They pester you because they're scared and no one's listening. Usually you try to help them if you can or learn to tune them out. And our time is up for today.
      Eli: Wow, blunt. Now I know how my psych patients feel.

    • Eli: Not so sure this is such a good idea. It may be time to call in a higher power - like the cops?
