  • I dont have anything to say about this particular episode I just watch it from time to time when I'm dateless on a Friday. I am writing a review for the first time for this show after all the episodes that I've seen I have to say that this show is averagemoreless

    Compared to Medium of course. It is just boring seeing the same old premise every wk. I miss my husband, I want to tell my girlfriend I want her to move on,I didnt get a chance to

    get a quickie just once more, blah blah blah sappy sapfest.

    I even hate it even more when they pretend its gonna be scary like the 1st season the man in all black the brim man they call or something? or this season like the wanna be ghost rider ep. where the ghost wanted to kill his living ex. that was cool at first even though it was a desperate attempt to be hip and get a younger audience I dont think I'VE EVER seen so many people under the age of thirty on this show b4. And what about the ep. when Jennifer Love Huge t.ts ex was a ghost and haunted her hubby that was scary at first but got sappy real fast. I've gotten to the point of just watching until the last 10 min. then I turn. Final thought the show would have more interestig drama if they stop reducing her hubby to patient, waiting on the side lines , in touch w/ his feelings champaigne drinking sissy that he comes off as sometimes. At least the husband on Medium is a strong likeable father of three whats this guys excuse(toughin him up and give him bigger roles please) , not to mention I thought it was real jacked up to kill off Aiesha T. character it would of been easier and soooo much nicer to just not make her a reaccuring character than a regualar if they were going to do this the first season, and then replace her w/ the chubby knuckle dragger fromthe practice. I dont mean to be so... well mean about that chick but she is by far so not a better replacement for Tylers character even if this new has a rebelliouse psycic son, I think maybe the show needed someone who wouldnt be competition in the pretty dept. Out of nowhere they pull a I got the minorities hooked, met my minority quota, dont need you anymore move LIKE on Smalleville w/ the Pete Ross character but at least they let him move away not die, or even better S.G. Atlantis the character Ford has super powers and even though these two characters were unecessarily kicked off the show they are still alive so they can make a guest appearance from time to time. If they were going to kill off a regular why not kill off Hewitts hubby in the show or Tylers characters brother that would of made better storylines I think, just somebody any body other than Tyler heck I bet she bought a house close to the set all to be stuck w/ an expensive house and noooooo GOOD job, if thats not messed up I dont know what is. So now that they kicked of the TOKEN I am finding less and less of a reason to watch the J.L.Hewitt fashion show w/ a spooky sappy twist. And yes miss Hewitt we all know u have money but your character is a antique shop owner w/ hardly any business and a mortgage, and yes whether her hubby has a good job or not tone down the BLOOMINGDALES clothes and be more modest some stuff she puts on is just rediculouse, is she going to a club,a job interview, or to help a lost spirit. ITS O.K. to wear JEANS and a T. shirt from time to time and the male viewers will appreciate it and think her character is more down to earth, not her just trying to wear as maaaaaany cute outfits as she cans b4 the ep. reaches the 40 min. mark!moreless
  • LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!

    oh my god...i absoulte loved this episode it's definately my favorite of the was awesome...the begining was creepy i mean the missing corpse from the morgue...and two ghosts instead of one...but it was awesome how two people are connected even if they werent that close when they were living...and i loved all the gestures that the paramedic made to get Delia back...i personally would have melted after the first one with the mp3 was so cute...the end where Jason gave Allysa the list i cried because it gave her that extra push to follow her dreams...a must see.moreless
  • It was great! A zombie and two ghosts- can't go wrong there.

    I loved this episode. From the very beginning, it was very errie and it made me want to stay and watch to figure out just how a corpse could start to move again. I was shocked to find out that the two ghosts were connected since they went to the same high school together. And in this episode Melinda told one of the ghost's old friends that she was part of the reunion committee to get some infromation out of her about the past. Even with all the creppy things going on, there was still enough sweetness to balance it out. Delia finally gives the guy who was knocking himself out to apologize to her another chance, and Alyssa gets a message from Jason to give her a reason to follow her dreams.moreless
  • Real life ghost was filmed in this episode of Walk-ins. What a great walk in!!

    What's not to love! They filmed a real ghost! It's a red circle and it's in the scene where the homecoming queen is at the reunion. It crosses over her from left to right and then a few scenes later it crosses over the screen from right to left. How exciting!!!
  • Cool! Zombies now!

    Very cool and hip. I that was really cool when a ghost invaded this man's body and starts walking around in a crazy way. It was just weird, I loved it. Very original. Two ghosts were crossed over so that is a very good thing. It was very touching but I have to admit that I thought it was hilarious that after the touching scene where the ghost guy apologizes for his mistakes to this one creep who wa bugging him and then telling him that he slept with his sister. Very funny. This was a very original and creatively done episode. Tune in!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • In the scene with the bloody footprints, just after Melinda has arrived, Jim points to the set of footprints and says "The middle toe is missing on the right foot." However, he points to a left foot with a missing middle toe. When we were shown the corpse, the middle toe on the right foot was missing, and most of the other footprints in that scene had the missing toe only on the right foot.

    • In the last scene, Delia makes it across the street and to the table way too fast.

    • Muscular Dystrophy

      Muscular Dystrophy, or MD, refers to a group of genetic, hereditary muscle diseases that cause progressive muscle weakness. There are over 100 different forms of muscular dystrophy.

    • Brian's body broke his leg below the knee when jumping over the fence. Even if the ghost in his body can't feel the pain, he couldn't get up and run away on it without losing his balance and falling down again.

    • Jason's list that Melinda gives Alyssa reads as follows:

      *Return from dead (Crossed off)
      *Stage dive
      *Joyride in Ferrari
      *Mom & Dad? (Crossed off)
      *Lick doorknobs at Republican Committee Bldg. (Crossed off)
      *Ring bells at Vatican
      *Find Alyssa at reunion

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Melinda: Is Harold glad to have his missing body back?
      Jim: He is. And he didn't even ask why the dead guy was wearing a suit.

    • Melinda: I thought you said you saw the light!
      Jason: Yeah I think that was actually the street lamp behind you, it's giving you a bit of a weird glow. Made you look like an angel.

    • Professor Payne: Uh, we've only been talking for three minutes, give me at least eight to nine minutes to unravel the whole mystery.

    • Harold: Tell me this is a prank or a dream! I'll accept either one.
      Jim: Harold, how do you lose a body?
      Harold: My boss wants to know the same thing. It's going to be my ass if I don't come up with an explanation.

    • Jim (to Tim): At least you realize you're a moron. That's a good first step.

    • Professor Payne (to Melinda about Bryan): This takes everything you and I know about the supernatural and pretty much just blows it out of the wall.

    • Jim (to Bryan): Hey, dead guy, can I have my ring back?

    • Alyssa: We wrote up a list of things to do before we died. Jason knew he'd never leave that room, but that didn't stop him from dreaming.

    • Melinda: he is dead while he is shoplifting. You are watching him dead. Dead man walking.
      Professor Payne: Dead man shopping!

    • (Professor Payne gives Melinda a candle.)
      Melinda: Didn't I get these at the ninety-nine cent store?
      Professor Payne: Maybe. I got mine at Bed, Bath and Voodoo.

    • Professor Payne: You know what I say about instant gratification?
      Melinda: What?
      Professor Payne: (smiling) Takes too long.

    • Professor Payne: Do you think it's easy being this brilliant Melinda? It's not, sometimes it....makes, it makes my head hurt, right here.
      Melinda: OK, well there may be more to it than that. He said that he had to find 'her' and finish some kind of list.
      Professor Payne: What do you mean her?
      Melinda: He didn't say.
      Professor Payne: You may have a problem!
      Melinda: Why?
      Professor Payne: You said, what, that ghost was 16 years old? Now you're dealing with something that's more unpredictable than a Haitian Death Culture. You're dealing with a teenage ghost inside a mans body with raging hormones, looking for a girl - good luck!

    • Bryan (to Professor Payne): You're right, Rick. I did give up. And not a day goes by where I don't think about how much I wasted, how many opportunities I let slip because I was too scared. But you come to the point where you need to let your regrets go too, or they take over your life. I was lucky. I got that chance. Not everybody does. Also... Three years ago, I totally nailed your sister.

    • The song at the end of the episode is "Human" by Jon McLaughlin. This episode also features Goldfrapp's song "Ooh La La".

    • The search engine that Melinda uses to find out information on Grandview High Alumni is called "Penthius". It doesn't actually exist as a website search engine but has been used before in Ghost Whisperer S2 Ep1 "Love Never Dies".

    • Jamie Bamber Battlestar Galactica guest stars as Bryan Curtis


    • Melinda: Can't I get that at the 99 cent store?
      Payne: You could. I got mine at Bed, Bath and Voodoo.

      Melinda is alluding to a chain of price-point retailer stores where everything is for sale under a dollar.

      Payne is punning the chain called Bed, Bath and Beyond where they sell just about everything you need for your home.

    • Payne: What do you know about Voodoo?
      Voodoo is a name attributed to a traditionally West African spiritual system of faith and ritual practices. Like most faith systems, the core functions of Voodoo are to explain the forces of the universe, influence those forces, and influence human behavior. It has even been rumored to reanimate dead bodies.

    • Melinda: Dead Man Walking
      This is an allusion to men who are on Death Row walking around. The 1995 movie of the same name, with Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon, is about this. It has also been associated with zombies, in this case.
