    • Declan: You remember when we first started hanging out, and I told you about those six unexplained things that I was investigating?
      Peggy: Uh-huh.
      Declan: Okay. One of them was this cat in Jamaica. He claimed he was possessed, so I flew down there to check it out. But this local priest performed an exorcism on him. I was there for it. In the middle of this exorcism, the guy starts lifting off the bed, Peggy. He levitated, and I saw it. I was there - With my own eyes.
      Peggy: Jamaica?
      Declan: Yeah.
      Peggy: (skeptically) Ha.
      Declan: What? You think I was smoking a left-handed cigarette? No, no! I wasn't! Absolutely not! In fact, I was the most cynical guy in the room, if you want to--
      Peggy: Alright, let's just stop this, right now.
      Declan: What?
      Peggy: You may have partially convinced me that there is a higher power at work in the world, but I refuse to believe that there is an evil force doing battle with it.
      Declan: What are you talking about? You don't believe in Hell - is that what you're saying?
      Peggy: No.
      Declan: What.. no. Come on! You can't have the good without the bad; the Ying and the Yang, no free will.
      Peggy: If you want Hell, read the morning newspaper.

    • Carson: Well, you'll excuse me, I'm sure. Must dash.
      Carson leaves
      Declan: (mimicking) "Must dash." Who talks like that?

    • Declan: Listen, I was over at Alison's apartment today, right?
      Peggy: Declan!
      Declan: No, she wasn't there. I mean she came later. I mean, her neighbor, I told him...
      Peggy: You have to stop breaking into people's houses.
      Declan: I wasn't breaking in. He called me, he heard some noises, I went over there, Peggy, and I tell you what man, I saw it. The books were flying off the shelves and the bed was shaking. It was like...did you see that movie, The Exorcist?
      Peggy: Yes.
      Declan: It was like that; it was freaky.

    • (Declan comes running toward Miranda)
      Miranda: Declan!
      Declan: Miranda! Hey.
      (Declan trips and falls on the ground at Miranda's feet)
      Miranda: Whoopsie.
      Declan: Don't say anything. What's up?
      Miranda: I was just inside checking out some books and I overheard the librarian telling some people that the library's haunted.
      Declan: Get out! Haunted? I'm in!

    • Declan: You don't think it could have anything to do with the books flying off the shelves, do you? Or the furniture moving around by itself?
      Peggy: We didn't actually see the furniture move. And the books flying off the shelves could be the result of an overactive imagination.
      Declan: Peggy, the refrigerator was upside down!

    • Declan: ...and there was this thing on the ceiling. It said "abandon hope". Ring a bell?
      Peggy: Dante's Inferno - The Gates of Hell.

      The Divine Comedy, often referred to as Dante's Inferno is a poem written by Italian poet Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321, and is considered one of the greatest works of world literature. In it, the central character, Dante, passes through the gate of hell, on which is inscribed the phrase "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate", or "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here".
