    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Allison: I'll owe you a favor?
        Ray: Exactly.
        Allison: How very mysterious.
        Ray: It's a curse I live with.

      • Dr. Jimmy: Are you okay, Ray?
        Ray: Couldn't be better.
        Dr. Jimmy: You didn't just drop by because you've seen the light.
        Ray: I'm still looking for the matches.

      • Lee: What the hell are you doing here?
        Ray: Well, trying to save souls.
        Lee: I don't buy it. You're not the type.
        Ray: I didn't know the good Lord had a type. What type are you?

      • Alison: You're not religious, are you?
        Ray: I am, in my own way. I've seen a lot of evil. Here, all over the world. The horror of war, injustice. If I have a religion, I guess my religion is my belief in the inherent good of all people... and having faith in that belief. Sometimes it takes all the strength that I have.

      • Allison: You haven't told me anything about yourself.
        Ray: There's nothing to tell.
        Allison: That's not fair. You're telling me you don't have a past?
        Ray: The past is so long ago, I can't remember.

      • Ray: Let me ask you something, Kennedy. Do you really think that... how did you describe me "a clever killer like myself would put the quote "murder boots" in my closet? That doesn't sound very clever to me.
        Kennedy: How clever is it to kill six prostitutes?
        Ray: I really don't think you get the point.

    • NOTES (1)

      • In the opening montage there's a scene of a man in a brown tweed jacket and glasses embracing Ray that doesn't appear in the episode.
