The first character to ask for help was played by Hudson Leick who also appears in the opening credits saying "Help me!"
Heath Freeman played a character named Cameron, but he was removed from the series after negative test reactions.
Tru: Do you ever think Mom's still watching us?
Harrison: God, I hope not... because I'm not sure she'd like what she sees.
Tru: Yeah... Maybe she's trying to change that.
Tru: What can you say about a woman who comes in with a bullet in her neck?
Davis: That she's dead?
Tru: What's the score?
Gary: Seven-one, Sox. Top of the ninth.
Tru: I'll bet you $100 they lose.
Gary: What, are you crazy?
Tru: Maybe. Don't know yet.
Meredith: So, what's Harrison's excuse this time? A girl? A truckload of DVDs? A girl with a truckload of DVDs?
Mark (to Tru): Congratulations! Yesterday, you were an ethics violation, and today you are a faculty girlfriend...
Lindsay: Uh, Rebecca Morgan. 303 West 23rd Street. Uh, who is she?
Tru: I don't know yet. Hopefully, no one.
Lindsay: Every time I hope for someone to be no one they always turn out to be someone. Maybe you'll have better luck.
Davis: It's called the crypt. It's where every unnatural death in the city comes to rest, waiting for an autopsy.
Tru: You said "unnatural death"?
Davis: Most of them. Because if there's even a hint that a death might be unnatural, murder, suicide, they come here.
Tru: So every crypt...
Davis: Has a body. That's right. Can you imagine the pain of losing someone before their time? Bottom line: most of these people shouldn't be dead yet.
Davis: You ever been to a morgue before?
Tru: Just once, when I was 12.
Davis: Well, that sounds like a story. Are you sure you're interested in wor... in working here? Because, I'll be honest, uh most girls as pretty as you that come here...well they're...they're dead.
Davis: Tru, why do I think you're not telling me the truth?
Tru: I know I shouldn't have looked through the files. I just have a few questions.
Davis: Oh what? About unsolved murders?
Davis: So let me get this straight. In the eight hours since you've started working here, you've decided to solve old cases? It's very ambitious. You know what I did today? I bought socks.
(After the day rewinds)
Tru: You never met me?
Davis: I have never met you. Then again, I haven't been going to the gym lately so...
Harrison: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Are you okay? Is everything okay?
Tru: I'm having a day, Harrison. A day I would gladly explain to you if I thought I could but I can't, so I'm not even gonna try. And I heard another voice.
Harrison: Wait. I don't understand. You mean like, you mean like Mom?
Tru: No, not her. Someone else.
Harrison: Oh, boy.
Tru: And that's not even the half of it. Believe it or not, that's the half that makes sense. I-I just don't get it. Me of all people, why do they come to me?
Harrison: Maybe because they know that you'll listen.
Tru: Do you think I'm crazy?
Harrison: I never thought you were crazy.
Tru: I've got a drinking game. It's called "you graduated from college and your family didn't show up".
Cameron: Your drinking game is next on Doctor Phil.
Lindsay: I'm so sorry Tru. I know they miss all your track meets but...
Tru: To be expected... Harrison probably met a girl, Meredith probably met a client, and my father...
Lindsay: No acknowledgment of children from his first marriage.
Tru (at her mother's grave): It's been the strangest day. An understatement, I know. Did you have anything to do with it? I don't know. I only know... I wish this day had come 10 years earlier. Then maybe I could've saved you too. Instead I'll wait... for others. Some who have needed me longer than most. So maybe I couldn't save you. Maybe, just maybe... this is your way of saving me.
Tru: You're gonna be a mom, Rebecca. Take it from someone who lost hers way too soon. You're supposed to live. There's no better reason to.
Rebecca: Your mother?
Tru: Was killed... 10 years ago, in front of me... by a man they never found. It wasn't her time then... and it's not yours now.
