  • Trivia

    • In 1910 Amelia refers to Alice Craybourn as The Next Isadora. Isadora Duncan (1877-1927)was considered to be the mother of modern dance. She was also a poet, a critic of modern society and culture, and a champion of the struggles for women's rights.

    • The flashbacks in this episode are dated 1910, however Amelia mentions a magazine that was not published until 1911.

    • John used to be a painter of fine art during the early 1900s.

    • We learn that John has put together a family tree of all his descendents.

    • Mr. Spoor: De wereld krimpt.
      (The world grows smaller)
      John: De herinneringen vergroten.
      (The memories grow larger).

      John's accent is much more German than Dutch - most noticeable in the g sound - and in (modern) Dutch the sentence would be "De herinneringen nemen toe".

      Sara: You're a detective. Someone doesn't return your calls, it's a clue.

    • Agent Lawson: One step over the line, I'm gonna have your badge.
      John: Maybe you'd like to come over here and take it off me.
      Callie Burnett: Oh, boy, the measuring contest. We love it when you do that.

    • Mank: (doing an autopsy) Is it me, or are John Does the fastest growing segment of the population?

    • Callie Burnett: Eva and I, we understand each other. She just doesn't know it yet.

    • Callie Burnett: You know, Amsterdam, you and I should spend some time. Because I like to show a human face, and not a bad one, I might add, before I show another one.
      John: I've been through a million bosses, they all died happy.

    • Eva: Do not, ever, under any circumstances, think you're taking care of me.
      John: Furthest thing from my mind.
      Eva: It's just, my dad and I, we have problems. What about your parents?
      John: I'm an orphan.
      Eva: That would explain a lot.

    • Callie Burnett: I got a call from Organized Crime, they want in on the Chinatown investigation.
      John: Why?
      Callie Burnett: They like General Tso's Chicken. What do you care? Give them the case, there's plenty more where that came from.
      John: They can't have it.
      Callie Burnett: You don't even have an ID on the vic.
      John: We're close.
      Callie Burnett: Yeah, so is Jupiter if you're on Mars.

    • Mank: Oh, I got a joke for you. A dyslexic walks into a bra. A bra. See, he's dyslexic, things criss-cross... forget it.

    • Feng: How long you work undercover?
      Eva: Don't ask him.
      John: Did a 10-year stint in the CIA.

    • Callie Burnett: This is Special Agent Lawson, FBI.
      John: I could tell by the shoes.

    • Omar: Hey, you're 400. What you in training for?
      John: It's a release.
      Omar: Of course, now that you and Sara have done the deed, maybe you are mortal. In which case, you better be careful.
      John: Well if she's the one, then where the hell is she? The shaman didn't say much about voicemail.

    • Omar: (to John) If I took responsibility for everything you did, I'd never get out of bed in the morning.

    • John: Now, we'll get whoever did it. But I need you to let us do our job.
      Nicolas Spoor: One week.
      John: I don't make deals.
      Nicolas Spoor: It's not a deal. It's a promise.

    • Eva: You ever wonder why so many New York tenements are six stories high?
      John: Water flowing from the upstate reservoirs will go that high unassisted. Otherwise, you'd need a water tower or a separate pump.
      Eva: You really annoy me sometimes.

    • John: I like it, the darkness. In the old days, before Edison...
      Eva: You used fire. I know.

    • Callie Burnett: Partners. It's like marriage without the make-up sex.

    • Eva: You familiar with "malfeasance," Terry? Say a murder was committed and you had proof that to who was involved, but you withhold it. Any idea what you'd be looking at?
      Terry: So she's the bad cop?
      Eddie Marquez: She'll kick your ass out of your mouth.

    • Agent Lawson: Why are you talking to my superiors?
      Callie Burnett: Ah, I woke up feeling that today was a good day to violate the chain of command. Or did they call me? Well, whichever.

    • Sara: Just answer me the following questions... are you currently married?
      John: No.
      Sara: Gay? No, I take that back. Witness Protection?
      John: No.
      Sara: Terminal?
      John: Not sure.
      Sara: Do you want to spend some time together.
      John: Yes. Very much.

    • Omar: Your wife and your son, why didn't you go after them, John? Try to see them.
      John: And say what? I knew I had to leave them sooner or later. Better they left me.
