    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Sydney: Mr. Lyle shows up, your father disappears. It's too coincidental to be just a coincidence.
        Miss Parker: Syd, how is it that half the time you bumble around here without a clue and the other half you're a sage that knows everything? What's that about?
        Sydney: Survival.

      • Fernando: The ancient Greeks believed that the brain was the home of the consciousness.
        Jarod: And the heart was the home of the soul.

      • Mr. Lyle: The powers are tired of the way things have been run. Tired of the inefficiency. Angry that Jarod's still out there.
        Brigitte: I don't understand why it's so hard to capture one man.
        Miss Parker: Jarod's not just a man. He's a Pretender. A human chameleon. A genius who can literally become anyone that he wants to be.

      • Jarod: (to his class) I want each of you to understand that there is only one unforgivable sin in my class. I will not, under any circumstance, tolerate any disrespect for these cadavers. Underneath each of these plastic sheets lies a human being. Many of these bodies, they come to us unknown and unclaimed, which means that they died alone and afraid. With no friends, no homes. Forgotten by their families and thrown away by society. Therefore, they will not be disrespected in this classroom.

      • Miss Parker: Who is Mr. Lyle? Who is he?!
        Mr. Raines: He's the bogeyman.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Jarod's surname: Howard (referencing Moe Howard of the Three Stooges. The Fein brothers are another in-joke reference to Larry Fine, also of Stooge fame).

      • Sydney: Dia de la Muerta. Day of the Dead.
        The Dia de la Muerta--literally "Day of the Dead"--is a Hispanic holiday, and is in some places observed by a parade to ancestral gravesites.
