Professor Rick Payne
When Melinda walks into "Same As It Never Was" and is talking to Delia, the song "Barenaked" by Jennifer Love Hewitt is playing in the background. Jennifer recorded this Top 40 hit in 2002.
Reggie ("Demon Child" and "The Vanishing"), Amy Fields aka the Flight Attendant (Season 1 Finale), Bleeding Man ("Love Still Won't Die"), Jared ("The Curse of the Ninth"), Randy Cooper ("The Cradle Will Rock") and Kelly Payne ("Speed Demon") all make a reappearance after joining the dark side as part of Gabriel's collection of earthbound spirits.
Melinda: I can't believe you followed me, what are you, 12?
Payne: It was in the name of Science, plus my lecture let out at 5.
Melinda: Do you have any idea what this makes me look like?
Payne: Tell me about it, I was running like a girl holding this camera. I fell down, that guy grabbed me and I almost...thank god he did not break this camera because that is not cheap and I am.
Professor Payne: Melinda, listen to yourself, you sound just like all those little frightened people that have doubted you your whole life!
Melinda: Uh, you were one of those not too long ago.
Payne: I'm a scientist! It's my job to doubt you!
Professor Payne: Are we going to find this ghost guy or are we going to write bumper stickers?
Melinda (about Gabriel): Why is he collecting souls? Why does he want them to stay earthbound?
Kate Payne: It's not just him. It's happening all over, they're planning something.
Melinda: Who is?
Kate Payne: Everyone on this side.
Melinda: What do they want?
Kate Payne: They want to make the dead stronger than the living. They want to take over.
Melinda (about Gabriel): I have to talk to him because maybe I can help him.
Professor Payne: No. No, I forbid it, no you cannot. This is not a stray dog Melinda; this guy is trouble, okay?
Melinda (about Gabriel): I don't know if I can totally trust him yet. You know, I have a weird thing about coincidences.
Professor Payne: You're so suspicious, I love that about you. But then again, that's what I love about me, so...
Melinda (about Kate): She wants to know if you can forgive her. Its what she needs to find peace and cross over.
Professor Payne: No.
Professor Payne: No. I can say it but I'd be lying. I can say the words if that's what you want.
Jim: You'll never get another chance like this, you have to know that
Professor Payne:No. No, she should have come to me, we could have spoken about it, she was with another man, Melinda, it's too much pain, no.
Kate Payne: (To Melinda) Tell him, you tell him, he doesn't know what pain is. None of you do. But you all will.
Gabriel: Come on Melinda, this things we do makes us liars. You lie every single day. Every time you make an excuse for why you're talking to yourself, or when you back peddle to explain how you know something you shouldn't, or when you're looking right at somebody that no one else can see. Lying is second nature to us. Lying is survival.
(Melinda has just told Rick about Gabriel)
Melinda: Close your mouth.
Professor Payne: I don't know that I can.
Melinda: I recommend it for your next class.
