  • Quotes

    • (upon dying)
      Mr. Jones: Hey there!
      Grace: Where the hell am I?
      Mr. Jones: Actually, that's where you're not.

    • Grace: This is ridiculous, I can't be dead. I've got so much to do.
      Judge Othniel: Dr Grace Grant-Hastings, I presume.
      Mr. Jones: You're up. Come on.
      Judge Othniel: That's your name with a hyphen in it, lady?
      Grace: Yes. Are you God?
      Judge Othniel: No. (laughs) Made in His image, same as you. It says here you are a self-confessed secular humanist. (chuckles to himself) Another noodnick!

    • Judge Othniel: When you chose ambition over love, you sentenced yourself and your husband to a life of emptiness and guilt.

    • Mr. Jones: You want to know why God gave you a second chance Daisy? Because He loves you.

    • Mr. Jones: People can change their lives any time they want. There's no statue of limitations on saying "I'm sorry, I was wrong, I made a mistake."

  • Allusions

    • Physician, heal thyself
      Mr. Jones is quoting Jesus' words from Luke 4:23. One interpretation of the proverb is that people should take care of their own faults instead of correcting others' defects.
