  • Trivia

    • Despite Abbie's assertation to Crane that "That's the first time you ever called me Abbie", he did in fact call her Abbie in the pilot episode, when he told her, "But perhaps you were called to something, Abbie, to finish the work your sheriff started."

  • Quotes

    • Ichabod: I'd consider myself a sporting man, but why must you insult that gentleman for inciting a rule infraction? I fail to see the point.

    • Ichabod: Open your eyes, sir! Yes, you. basket face. I thought only horses slept standing up!
      Abbie: Good, feels good, exercise your hard-fought right, free speech. Just next time, wait for the ump to make a call.
      Ichabod: Right.

    • Irving: You know, there are two things in life I believe a person should hold on to for as long as possible: virginity and skepticism. Surprisingly, I already lost the first thing so I'm going to hold on for the second one as long as possible.

    • Ichabod: I don't believe in spirits and destiny...
      Katrina: You are a terrible liar, sir. It's quite endearing.

    • Henry Parrish: Let he who is without sin... (to Abbie) fairly certain that isn't you...

    • Henry Parrish: I don't do it anymore. Even if I explained, you wouldn't understand.
      Abbie: Try me.
      Henry Parrish: Imagine you had a pair of glasses into their hearts; what they've done. The parts that are locked down so deep, even they're afraid to see. But you see them. And you carried them. Until the only person you can't see anymore... is yourself. If I didn't stop, I would have disappeared completely.

    • Ichabod: I've lived on borrowed time, more than any man deserves. I've seen wonders beyond my wildest imaginings. And through these centuries, against the impossibility that we would find each other... we did. And I am most grateful for it.

    • Ichabod: Who are you?
      Henry Parrish: I have been called many things. Angel. Demon. Until now, I wasn't sure what was true. For so long, I've hoped for this day. To find the reason for what I've been given. And now I know. The reason is you.

    • Abbie: Next time, listen to me. I can't go through that again.
      Ichabod: My ears shall remain eternally open to your admonition.
      Abbie: I don't know what the hell that means. Just say yes.
      Ichabod: Yes.
