    • Matthew 5:4

      Biblical quote, which translates from the King James Bible as "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted".

      In this episode, when Ezra is extracting the gold tooth from the corpse when Bobby first arrives, Ezra says, "God helps the mourners for they are blessed". This could possibly be his take on the Matthew 5:4 verse, as it is somewhat similar but incorrect. This fits in with the rest his so-called biblical quotes which are mostly incorrect or not even biblical at all.
