Allusions Edit

Jesse's commands Edit

  • Jesse issues two commands in this episode. It is only after the first that he actually discovers that he possesses this ability.
  1. Tells a child molester to "forget about her", relating to a particular girl that the man had an interest in.
  2. Tells Tracy Loach, who is in a coma, to "open your eyes".

Quotes Edit

  • Cassidy: (seeing Eugene's face) What the bloody hell happened there?
  • Jesse Custer: Shotgun. He tried to kill himself.
  • Cassidy: He's walking the earth with a face like an arsehole. Should've tried harder. Was that an un-Christian thing to say, was it?
  • Jesse Custer: Pretty much.
  • Cassidy: All right. Fair enough.


  • Cassidy: Do you know what? He has a plan for me, too.
  • Jesse Custer: His plan for me is to let you know that his plan for you is the dumbest, most boring plan He's ever come up with.
  • Cassidy: His plan for me is to let you know that his plan for you is the dumbest, most boring plan He's ever come up with.
  • Jesse Custer: So selfishness--that's your answer. Just run around, do whatever whenever you want. What kind of a life is that?
  • Cassidy: An honest one.


  • Jesse Custer: What's your story, Cassidy?
  • Cassidy: No, it's pretty typical, really. I'm a 119-year-old vampire from Dublin City. And I'm currently on the run from a group of vampire-hunting religious vigilantes who keep tracking me down somehow.
  • Jesse Custer: What else?
  • Cassidy: I'm a right-handed Sagittarius. I love Chinese food. I've never seen the Pacific Ocean. And I think that The Big Lebowski 's overrated.



  • Cassidy: Honestly, boys, I don't know how you keep finding me. Truly, I don't. But I do know that you're going to be sorry you did. Ah? And not just the kind of "I took half a sheet of LSD down at the bullfight" kind of sorry, neither. No, no, no, no, no, boys. No, this this kind of sorry is much worse.


  • Emily Woodrow: Look, I--I understand that Cassidy's sort of... of disgusting, rude, childish thing can be fun. I get... I get it. But, umm yesterday, there was a case and half of communion wine in the supply closet, and today...
  • Jesse Custer: I'll talk to him.
