    Rolf Pederson finally gets a guard outside his room in this episode. According to the guard, a guard not being posted was an oversight. While he talks with nurse Carrie Von Trier outside the door, Paul attempts to kill Peter by putting his hand on Peter's throat. Apparently choking him and causing him his vitals to go wonky. Luckily, Mary and Antubis show up to save the day. Mary helps Peter by simply putting her hand on his hand and his vitals return to normal. When Carrie walks in, it's like nothing ever happened. Nat comes in and brings in a cassette player and a tape of the book Silence in Babylon. Across the street at the mission, Reverend Jimmy is leading a reader's group with the same book. One of the group, Frank, starts ranting and raving. Some of the stuff is about Mary, Paul and Peter. Finally, he runs into a wall, hits his head and falls unconscious. At the hospital, an MRI shows that Frank has a tumor. Maybe the tumor let him see things but made him crazy as a result. Stegman operates on him, but he wakes up while under anesthesia and then dies. Meanwhile, Abel and Christa, in an effort to keep from getting caught by Dr. Stegman, exchange their white uniforms for pink ones. Also, Hook shows Chris Draper his home under Kingdom Hospital. It is part of Gottreich Hospital, commonly known as the Old Kingdom, which burned down in 1939. There, Draper discovers Hook's hoarded medical supplies and his records of mistakes and malpractice of the other Kingdom doctors.moreless

    • (under the hospital)
      Hook: Welcome to my home.
      Draper: You don't really live here.
      Hook: I do. Be it ever so humble, and all that jazz.

    • Liz: Can you guys tell me what kind of episode he had?
      Firecracker Man: He started channeling Marshall Mathers on the Eminem network.
      Jack: He seen the Holy Spirit and started speaking in tongues.
      Reverend Jimmy: He just went crazy, that's all.

    • Hook: Morning, Nat.
      Natalie: Morning.
      Hook: Got him listening, I see.
      Natalie: Mmm. Well, it was your idea.
      Hook: And if it works, I get the credit. If it doesn't, I don't get the blame.

    • Liz: What do we have?
      MRI Tech: I am not a physician. I am not allowed to interpret scan results.
      (Liz grabs MRI Tech's ear)
      MRI Tech: (groans) It's a tumor.
      Liz: I know that, infant. What kind of tumor?
      MRI Tech: Glioblastoma Multiforme.
      Liz: That's Latin for, "There's a homicidal octopus growing inside his brain."

    • James: So nice to see you up in the sunlight. Coffee? Julie makes the most wonderful dry roast.

      Christa: Except for Nozz-a-la.

    • Draper: Tell me, Hook, who made you judge, jury and executioner?
      Hook: You know, I've been as hard on myself as anyone else. Harder.

    • (about lab coat)
      Hook: You look wonderful in that.
      Draper: It's the same as yours.
      Hook: Well, you look better.

    • Hook: It's a price to be paid for evil and incompetence. If I didn't believe that, I think I'd go mad.

    • (After seeing Hook's supply of alcohol)
      Draper: You aren't going to tell me all of that is hospital supplies.
      Hook: Even the Bible says "Take a little wine for thy belly's sake." It was originally intended for the terminals on Sunshine Ward, and the Alzheimer's patients, of course. A little wine perks them up amazingly.
      Draper: Yeah, I've read the studies.
      Hook: Got diverted down here by a conservative contingent who believed the only job alcohol has in a hospital is to swab out wounds. The more it stings, the better.

  • NOTES (7)

    • In the scene where Hook shows Draper his underground home, the song playing in the background is the show's theme tune Worry About You by Ivy.

    • "Criss" is another recurring King name - one of the gang members who plague the Losers, the kids from It, is Victor Criss.

    • "Anderson" is another recurring King name, in his fiction and in real life. Roberta Anderson was a main character in The Tommyknockers, and Darrel Anderson is the artist for The Dark Tower 6: Song of Susannah.

    • Nurse von Trier's first name is Carrie - a nod to the author's telekinetic teenager from both the novel and the movie, Carrie.

    • Natalie Rickman is reading King's Misery while sitting with her comatose husband.

    • The German dog in this episode can be heard humming along to Red Dragon Tattoo, one of the reoccuring songs in this series.

    • The actual name of the hospital that Hook lives under is called the "Gottreich Hospital." The same as mentioned in the book the series is based on.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Gleason: Norton!
      When the janitor mentions that his name is Jackie Gleason, he makes a reference to the classic TV show The Honeymooners.
