Episode Summary

A woman with amnesia hires the Doyles to find out who she really is; Jake doesn't have to look far before her past shows up to find her in the form of two separate men who claim to be related to her. Unfortunately, neither of them is telling the truth about their connection to her. Rose would like to forget her past, but there's little chance of that, with Martin making unannounced visits to the house. Leslie relegates Jake to "friend" status after his antics with his past sweetheart.moreless

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Jake: If there was actually heated toilet seats, the entire prison population would be rendered docile, you know. And I changed, I got hard in there, old man. At one point, I had to take a spoon, like a plastic spoon, I filed it down and I stabbed this guy in the uh... (he looks at Mal, who is not listening)
        Mal: (pouring a shot of alcohol on his wife's grave) Cheers, darlin'.
        Jake: What are we doing here? Look, if you told me that we were going to be here, I would have at least put on a clean shirt.

      • Jake: We're sort of experts when it comes to missing persons. And you are, I mean, technically. Not really, I mean, you're here, but you're kind of like a missing person.
        Mal: What he's trying to say is, we're private detectives.
        Jake: Yeah. We're private detectives.

      • Des: Amnesia victims still have all their muscle memory and that. Maybe you should try... here, (he gives her a pad of paper and pen) just try writing your name, and see what comes out. Like, don't think about it.
        Jake: Where'd you pull that from?
        Des: From afternoons watching soaps with my Nan.

      • Jake: Listen, let me ask you a question, okay? Who was the first astronaut to land on Mars?
        Annabelle: No one has ever landed on Mars. I do have some working knowledge of the world.

      • Nikki: Jake, what are you doing here?
        Jake: You know, one thing I've never understood about you completely is the pillow thing, right? I mean, look at this (holding up a neckroll), what is this function? Is it a (he puts it behind his head)... actually, that's pretty good.

      • Jake: The red-headed guy that jumped you, he called you Annabelle. Yeah, Annabelle. That's one of the names you wrote down on that piece of paper.
        Annabelle: Well, that's a coincidence.
        Jake: Right. And this guy, he wasn't very polite, you know, in that kind of murderous, psychopathic kind of not polite way. And you're hiding something. And I don't know what, and I don't know why, but I'm 90... 20 percent sure you're hiding something.

      • Nikki: You know what? You and I, we've been together for four months, right?
        Jim: Did I forget an anniversary?
        Nikki: No! No, you didn't. Do you ever get pissed off?
        Jim: Sorry?
        Nikki: (louder) Do you ever get pissed off?
        Jim: Would you like me to get pissed off?
        Nikki: Yes! No. No, I...
        (Jim knocks a coffee cup off the table)
        Jim: (smiling) How was that?
        Nikki: Great.

      • Jake: Are you okay?
        Annabelle: Look, it's funny; I have no memory of him at all. There's something between us... I like him.
        Jake: What's not to like? He's charming, rich, and he could die any minute.
        Annabelle: Hey!
        Jake: No, look, I'm not judging you; I mean you're in love with Father Time, I get it.

      • Eli: I've been alone in this ridiculous house for 20 years, since the first wife checked out. Had the odd dalliance, sure. But Annabelle, well... she's fierce. Passionate about music, architecture, everything. And, well, in bed... she's fierce.
        Jake: Yeah, I get the idea. Sad... sadly.

      • Tom: I was hired to bring you back to the States; you're wanted for bilking old men out of their money up and down the Eastern Seaboard.
        Annabelle: I'm a con artist?
        Tom: A pretty successful one; you've never been caught.
        Jake: All right, well, who's she in danger from?
        Tom: He's your boyfriend (pointing at Ian) and her partner.
        Annabelle: Boyfriend?
        Ian: Yeah, baby, we're in love.

      • Jake: What's the matter with you anyway? Come on, look at me, what's wrong with you? Tell me.
        Mal: Rose is married.
        Jake: Oh, you got married, that's what's wrong with you. I mean, it makes sense that you'd be this grumpy after...
        Mal: To a man who's just finished doing 15 years for drug trafficking.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • (exiting H.M. Penitentiary)
        Jake: Free at last.

        Jake is quoting part of the last line of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech given in 1963; the last line is, "Free at last, free at last; thank God Almighty, we are free at last."

      • (about Eli)
        Jake: Well, he's probably a pretty good lawyer.

        Eric Peterson, who plays Eli, was also in Street Legal, where he played Leon Robinovitch, a lawyer. He was also in This Is Wonderland, where he played Justice Declan Malone, a judge; all judges in Canada are lawyers.
