  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Alec: Quality, not quantity, Max.
      Original Cindy: What all men tell themselves. Helps them sleep better at night.

    • Normal: Max is sick again?
      Original Cindy: Up all night. I couldn't get her out of that bathroom. I think it's cholera.
      Alec: Or diphtheria.
      Normal: Awww. Or maybe bubonic plague.
      Alec: I hear that's going around.

    • Logan (to Max): I said watch and learn, not watch and tip the guy off.

    • Logan: If you're not out of there in an hour, I'm coming in after you.
      Max: Damn right you are!

    • Sketchy: My life's not that interesting, Alec. I'm a bike messenger.
      Alec: We're all bike messengers.
      Sketchy: Yeah, but with you and Max and O.C., it's like that's not all you are. If the mutant stories were true, then life would be more interesting, and as a reporter bringing that story to the world, then I would be more interesting. But I am what I am. I'm a bike messenger.
      Original Cindy: That's not true, Sketchy.
      Sketchy: Well, it feels true.

    • Sketchy: Then I started thinking.
      Alec: Thinking?
      Original Cindy: What do you mean, thinking?

    • Sketchy: The truth is out there, people. The mutants exist, and I'm gonna prove it. (He leaves.)
      Alec: Well, that didn't go as well as I'd hoped.
      Original Cindy: No, it did not.
      Alec: Of course, the important question is, who gets to tell Max?

    • Boy: Want me to put you down?
      Max: Depends. If you hold me up here long enough, will your head explode?

    • Otto: We're looking for one of your messengers. Male, early twenties, long hair, ratty clothes.
      Normal: Uh, tragically, sir, you've just described every young man in my employ.

    • Max: What are you doing with Ray?
      Priestess: What is necessary.
      Max: Could you be a little more specific? 'Cause I left my copy of Wacky Cult Rituals for Dummies at home.

    • Max: I watch, I learn, I steal sodas.

    • Alec: What are the chances he stumbles across an actual Manticore alum that's stupid enough to let him snap a shot?
      Sketchy: Hey, guys. (snaps a picture of them on his way out.)
      Max (to Alec): You were saying?

    • Max: Sweet dreams, bitch.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Sketchy: The truth is out there, people.
      This is a reference to the TV series The X-Files which explored supernatural events and government conspiracies. "The truth is out there" was often used as a slogan for the show and appeared in the opening credits.

    • re: Sketchy's real name is Calvin Simon Theodore.

      This is a reference to cartoon characters The Chipmunks, individually known as Alvin, Simon and Theodore.
