Episode Quotes
JJ: Mr. Litchfield, I couldn't help but notice that my packet has different practice problems than the rest of the team.
Mr. Litchfield: Giving you the same work as them would be like asking Stephen Hawking to play Chutes & Ladders.

George: That was crazy. When I go to a morgue, I expect to see dead people, yes. But pre-dead people.

Katie: Okay, someone or something tried to attack me--a man, but with claws. And not like hot Wolverine claws, but like scary wild animal claws.

Katie: Angular, like the Joker. Oh, in the cartoon, not the movie. And intense Hulk-like eyes.
Jim: Okay...
Katie: What? Not green eyes. Dark, intimidating eyes.
Jim: You said Hulk-like.
Katie: I meant in demeanor.
Jim: Hair.
Katie: Lots of it. Hair. Scruffy, unkempt, dark… very Tony Stark in his “Demon in a Bottle” days.
George: How did someone as fine as you become a geek? What are you doing?
Katie: Trying to make something move across the room and hit you.
George: Of all the frigging sidekicks to get superpowers, it had to be this one.
