  • Quotes

    • Ryan: I'd like to speak to her.
      Jennifer: About what?
      Ryan: I'd like to know how she's doing.
      Jennifer: Perhaps later when we're not trying to find a serial killer.

    • Michael: I can handle dead people. You kill a dog, I go crazy. (Ryan stares) I got this little terrier mix. Forget it.

    • Ryan: You deserve more. I belong in your past. I work better in people's pasts, I always have.

    • Ryan: Where is she?
      Carroll: You know, the human eye is connected by seven muscles. I removed each one individually. You know how hard that is to do?

    • Ryan: So what's my sequel about, Joe? Everyone outside is anxious to know.
      Carroll: Umm. Well, it's going to be a collaboration. We're going to write this together, Ryan. You know, my first book was... clearly too avant garde. Lost in literati pretense. Now my new story... will play to a much wider audience. Even Poe whored himself out eventually.

    • Ryan: If this book ends with anything other than your death, you'd better plan on a rewrite.
