    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Duncan seems oddly incurious about why Garrick didn't follow him after their escape during the 17th century, or contact him any time in the intervening centuries. One would think that Duncan would have asked after not seeing his friend until the 20th century.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Duncan: (about a sculpture) That'd look good in your waiting room.
        Anne: Half my patients would die on the spot.

      • Garrick: Remember what Michelangelo said sculpture was?
        Duncan: "Freeing the shape from the stone."
        Garrick: I hammered into the stone. I capture my fears. Then I'm free of them. Keeps me sane, Duncan. They even make me a few bucks.

      • Duncan: How do you beat shadows? How do you fight something that doesn't exist?
        Garrick: You don't. Fighting it is the worst thing you can do. The illusion feeds off your fear.
        Duncan: But it's so damn real! It just keeps coming.
        Garrick: It's only real if you make it real. Don't try and fight it.
        Duncan: But where is this going?
        Garrick: Imagine a cliff with no bottom. You're on the edge of that cliff. Make the wrong choice now, you fall forever.

      • Anne: Getting any sleep?
        Duncan: Yeah, enough.
        Anne: Hmm, really? You don't look like it.
        Duncan: Well, I still have my sparkling personality.

      • Joe: (about Duncan) He could be losing it.
        Richie: The guy's gone four hundred years without really a problem. I mean, he's like a rock.
        Joe: Yeah, four hundred years of all your friends dying, everyone after your head. Maybe he's been a rock for too long.

      • Duncan: What a waste.
        Richie: You mean Garrick? Mac, he tried to kill you. What's to waste?
        Duncan: Inside? Knowledge. He spent centuries understanding his own mind. Finally could have shared what he knew.
        Richie: But he didn't.

      • Cop: (to Duncan) And Bruce...leave this (sword) at home.

      • Anne: Excuse me - reality calls.

      • Cop: And who is he, Bruce Lee?

      • Richie: So this thing isn't real - it's more like a Freddy Krueger thing.
