  • Quotes

    • Tru: You like being a firefighter?
      Nick: Yeah, I like helping people.
      Tru: You don't worry about how dangerous it is? You see it on the news all the time, a firefighter goes into the building...
      Nick: I don't really think about it. Sometimes a job just chooses you, you know what I mean?
      Tru: Yeah, I do.

    • Davis: Tru, you're not going to believe this, I just fished a tennis ball out of a guys large intestine.
      Lindsay: Remind me to cancel my tennis club membership.

    • Tru: Do you ever actually go home?
      Davis: I, I could ask you the same question.

    • Harrison: Hey, you okay?
      Tru: Yeah. What could be wrong?
      Harrison: (stutters) Let's see, uh, last time we talked you told me that dead people were talking to you so, I thought I might be remiss if I didn't follow up.

    • Mark: Hey, how was work last night?
      Tru: Pretty dead.

    • Davis: Look, Tru, I know that the..the morgue is not exactly Party Central but (stutters) don't worry, things will pick up.
      Tru: Actually, that's what I'm afraid of.

    • Tru: I thought when you asked for help, it was for you. Now I know it was for Samantha. You saved her. Everyone's calling you a hero. I don't want to sound selfish...but I wanted both of you. You said your job was a chance to help people. All they have to do is ask. So is mine. So ask me, Nick. Please? I'm not leaving till you ask. So please ask me, Nick. Please, just ask.

    • Tru: You had your day, you only get one.

    • Nick: See I knew we'd have that kiss before the day was over.

    • Nick: I like you, ya know i really do and i think you feel the same way, I'm not imagining this am I.

    • Nick: She's beautiful and she tells time too.
      Tru: No.
      Nick: What's wrong.
      Tru: I can't right now.
      Nick: Sure you can.
      Tru: No I can't.
      Nick: We're here.
      Tru: If I kiss you I'll fall for you and I can't do that, that would be bad.
      Nick: Why? Why would that be so bad?

    • Tru: It was amazing, the chance to say everything you want right in the moment.

    • Gardez: She's hot. Weird, but hot.

    • Tru: I don't know if I can take this.
      Gardez: Well, believe it or not, it actually gets easier. Besides I like to think they're going to a better place.
      Tru: You believe that?
      Gardez: Well, if you're gonna work here, you gotta believe it. Of course, the dead get off easy. It's the ones left behind that gotta deal with all the pain.

  • Notes

    • Original International Air Dates:
      Czech Republic: September 3, 2009 on Prima COOL

    • Tru starts calling Davis 'D' which is kind of the same as she did when she was playing 'Faith' in Buffy the Vampire Slayer as she called Buffy 'B'.

    • The filming for this episode began on 7/29/03.

    • We get a different ambulance driver/corpse delivery guy this week rather then Marco from the pilot. Vincent Laresca (Marco) presumably had to go play Hector Salazar over on television series 24.

    • When Tru is looking at the morgue records for when her mother died, Davis says that it was a bad year because before then they had the lowest mortality rate in the country, until Tru's mother died. This could be due to Tru's mother having "the gift" and stopping premature deaths.
