Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: In Allison's dream with the car accident, when the driver of the car that was hit got out to check the other driver (Julian Pierce) we can see that Julian Pierce's car's front is ruined because of the accident. Meanwhile the car with the couple inside was almost undamaged.

    • In many episodes Allison wakes up during the night to call someone or she has a call coming in. Why do they still have the phone on Joe's side of the bed and not on Allison's side? Does he really need to wake up during the night with her, every single time, to give her the phone?

    • Goof: When a casket is exhumed it isn't opened right at the grave but instead taken to a coroner's office, because a coroner must be present when the casket is opened. In the episode however, Agent Cooper opened the casket right at the grave, without a coroner being present.

    • Goof: When Agent Cooper is digging up the grave of the prostitute, one can clearly see a big pile of dirt by the hole. Yet the casket is quite clean - there's barely any dirt found on it. A casket sitting in the ground for that long would have had much more dirt caked on it.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Allison: You're a killer. And before long you're going to wind up in the same terrible place he is. I would never help you!
      Edward Cooper: (in an ominous tone) Guess we won't know until we know ... will we?

    • Allison: He swore to me that he wouldn't harm the man who killed these women.
      Joe: You at least got a pinky swear to that fact right? Because without one he is really under no legal obligation to stop killing.

    • Allison: Bridgette, honey, you're supposed to just wait for your teeth to fall out on their own. You're not supposed to use your fingers to loosen them.
      Bridgette: I dunno, Mom, I've been hearing about how ... bad the economy is, and here I am sittin' on 26 bucks that could make a difference.
