    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Jefferson Twilight: Torrid's a dick. Who does that? Who opens up Hell? Honestly?

      • Dr. Orpheus: The time is now! Triad, join me! For I am Dr. Orpheus! Master of Mysticism!
        The Alchemist: I don't want to do that introducing ourselves bit. It's goofy. Let's not die being goofy.
        Jefferson Twilight: I'm with Al. Maybe we could sing a Stevie Wonder song together.
        The Alchemist: Yeah, that's not much better.

      • Jefferson Twilight: Score?
        The Alchemist: 85%.
        Jefferson Twilight: Get out! Where did I blow it?
        The Alchemist: Well, for one, you killed Matthew Lasko.
        Jefferson Twilight: That was... well, he was wearing punctuation on his suit. That's a total bad-guy suit!
        The Alchemist: He helps people get free money from the government. That is a good guy. It's reflected in your score.

      • Dean: Well, if I was your dad, and you were your mom, and the you that wasn't your mom was another girl, I would never let anyone take the you-mom.
        Triana: That would be really sweet... if it wasn't so confusing.

      • Dr. Orpheus: Triad! Be unseen!
        Jefferson Twilight: Was something supposed to happen? Are we invisible now, or something?
        Dr. Orpheus: No, I meant that we should hide. Just like behind something.
        The Alchemist: Well be specific next time.

      • The Alchemist: Great, so we take credit for killing Torrid, you take credit for kicking the Outrider's ass. Then we make a secret pact to never speak of this again.
        Dr. Orpheus: I've been wrong about the Outrider. He was noble and good. We can't leave him like this.
        The Alchemist: Okay, we drop a rock on his head, then we make a secret pact to never speak of this again.

      • The Alchemist: Maybe we should strip him down and rub him with magic unctions?
        Jefferson Twilight: How will that help him?
        The Alchemist: Him? I was thinking of me.

      • Billy Quizboy: It's out! I did it. So, am I part of the Triad.
        The Alchemist: Triad implies three. So...
        Billy Quizboy: All right. Then you guys have to pay my rather steep fee.
        The Alchemist: Welcome to the Mystical Order of the Trilogy, Special Brother Billy!

      • The Master: Triana Orpheus, you should go live with your mother and begin your training as a sorceress. It's your destiny! And it's way cheaper than art school!

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Dean: I look like Rufio...
        Hank: Be the Pan, be the Pan!
        Referencing the 1991 film Hook, a continuation of the Peter Pan story directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Robin Williams as a middle-aged Peter returning to Neverland to find, among other changes, that his role as leader, or "The Pan," of the Lost Boys has been taken over by an aggressive young man named Rufio.

      • The Alchemist: Why don't you and Brundlefly here...
        Referencing the 1986 movie The Fly, a remake of the 1958 film which in turn was based on George Langelaan's 1957 short story. Jeff Goldblum plays Seth Brundle, a scientist who creates a teleportation machine. He inadvertently mixes his DNA with that of a fly caught in the machine, and begins to transform as his body parts fall off. During his transformative stage, Brundle refers to himself as "Brundlefly."
