  • I LOVED this episode

    I was totally awestruck by this episode. It was just so amazing. Even now, six years later, I remember it, which is telling.

    I loved the way they filmed this episode. It was so awesome, and the way they showed man\'s visions of demons. They were so creepy, scary, definitely worth the man\'s reactions to them.

    On top of that great plot line, we were given insight into the background of Albert\'s horrifying past. The little that we saw, was enough to make anyone drink.

    The episode was a prime example of exactly why this show should have gone on for a long time. Fantastic episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Marian: Hi, Albert!
      Albert: Well, you blew it, Marian. Never would have known it was you if you'd just kept walking. Now you're going to have to tell Archie and Jughead all about the blind guy.

    • Marian: It's hard sometimes to laugh at Marilyn Monroe, when you know what happened to her. She had such beautiful eyes.

    • Miles: It's amazing what these internet camera sites can do. I can sit in New England on a Friday night and watch the sun rise in Bombay!
      Elmer: Miles, I've been doing that ever since I was fifteen-years-old.
      Miles: Elmer, that is the kind of thing we gotta have on our webpage!

    • Satori: You were protecting your reputation at the hospital?
      Mark: Yes, and I'm not ashamed of it!
      Satori: Are you ashamed of us?

    • Elmer (to Albert): He can be healed, but not his eyes.

    • Elmer: [Sandy]'s not seeing the devil.
      Satori: Why?
      Elmer: Because if he'd been seeing the devil he wouldn't be alive.

    • Albert: I want my life to be different; the way it could have been. Although I know inside it never can be.

    • Albert: How can I help Mark's patient when after 32 years I can't even face my own demons...

    • Elmer: Back in New Orleans in the '20s they'd start with smearing the doorways with an ointment derived from the galbladder of a black dog.
      Mark: To keep demons away?
      Elmer: It kept me away. I never found out why they did it...

    • (after Sandy has dispelled the demons)
      Miles: Okay, now that you've managed to calm him down...since you all are more psychically attuned than myself you can let me know when we're about to get started.

    • Mark: Sometimes one plus one equals three.

    • Albert: I come to the movies to get away. So get away.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Albert: Now you're going to have to tell Archie and Jughead all about the blind guy.

      Archie was a comic created by Bob Montana in 1941 about a high school kid named Archie Andrews. In the comic Archie had a best friend, Jug Head, and they get in and out of trouble together, usually involving girls.
