  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Eleanor: Congratulations, Nathan. Now you get to come back with me for an MRI.
      Nathan: Another? Lucky number nine.
      Eleanor: Yeah, cheer up. Tenth one's free. (to Audrey) He's a regular.

    • Audrey: It's time to step up, Conrad.
      Conrad: How's that?
      Audrey: I could put her in jail but what would that solve? If Marian lets her emotions get out of control again, a lot of people could get hurt. Only three of us know what she can do, but only one of us has a real chance of making her happy. She needs somebody to keep her safe. But most importantly, calmed.

    • Audrey: Oh, oh no, my cell phone, oh, crap it's...
      Duke: Oh yeah, it's toast. But I uh, got you another one. (shows her a pink cell phone)
      Audrey: A Princess phone? Seriously?
      Duke: You really need to work on your thank yous.

    • Agent Howard: (seeing Audrey's barren home) It's impressive how little you've done with... so little.
      Audrey: That's what I do with all the vacation time that I don't get. Hit a bunch of outlet stores and furniture shop with all the guys that I don't meet.

    • (watching Audrey's car go off a cliff)
      Nathan: Shame about the car.
      Audrey: Eh, it's a rental.

    • Audrey: FBI! Who are you?
      Nathan: Haven PD. Who are you?
      Audrey: F-B-I. Are you deaf?

    • Nathan: Can I give you a ride somewhere?
      Audrey: Yeah, I guess it's friendlier than if I commandeer your vehicle.
      Nathan: Probably less paperwork, too.

    • Chief Wournos: Oh, it's the FBI. Well, is this one of those situations where you're here claiming to help, but you're really just here to step on my toes?
      Audrey: Not in these shoes.

    • Nathan: Welcome to Haven. You like pancakes? We got good pancakes.
      Audrey: What about lobster? Isn't Maine famous for lobster?
      Nathan: I don't like lobster. I really like pancakes.
      Audrey: Ah, I like the truck.
      Nathan: Thanks. Had it since I was 19.
      Audrey: How do you keep a car that long?
      Nathan: I don't drive off cliffs.

    • Audrey: So you seriously can't feel pain?
      Nathan: It's called ideopathic neuropathy.
      Audrey: You really couldn't feel it when that car door hit your hand?
      Nathan: No.
      Audrey: Can you feel fire?
      Nathan: No.
      Audrey: Ice?
      Nathan: Oddly, yes. I can feel ice.
      Audrey: You can feel ice?
      Nathan: No. I can feel a headache coming on, though.

    • Audrey: You took my clothes.
      Duke: Good morning.
      Audrey: You took my clothes.
      Duke: Well, now, I laundered your clothes. I saved your life. That's an odd combination, when you think about it. I mean, if you think about it.
      Audrey: You must be Duke.

    • Duke: Milk, one sugar, right?
      Audrey: No. No, and why would you know how I took my coffee?
      Duke: I wouldn't. It would've been cool if I did.

    • (as Dave does a data search)
      Audrey: Wow, that's impressive.
      Vince: You should see him use the Google machine.
      Dave: Hilarious.

    • Audrey: You know, every other kid I knew dreamed that their parents would come and claim them. And then they'd turn out to be rock stars. But I--I just dreamed that... you know what, never mind.
      Nathan: Too late to stop now.
      Audrey: I dreamed that my mother would roll up in a big bus, and she would rescue every kid in every orphanage in the world and bring them home.
      Nathan: Might be a good idea to let that one go.

  • Notes

    • As with many pilots, there are no opening series credits. After the teaser, the show picks up with the action while showing the main stars and opening credit crew.

    • Injoke: The Teagues' office address is 217 King Street, a subtle nod to Stephen King, author of The Colorado Kid. Further, 217 is the room number in The Shining of the haunted room that Danny Torrance is told to avoid.

    • Music: Love Will Keep Us Together (The Captain and Tennille)

    • The only similarities to Stephen King's novella, "The Colorado Kid" are that one of the two resident newspapermen has the name Vince Teagues, his partner has the first name David, and that the "Colorado Kid" murder seen in the photograph is similar to one in the novella: a body slumped against a trash can, and the corpse is eventually nicknamed "The Colorado Kid."
