Episode Quotes
Dr. Klein: Sorry, I just don't recall meeting anyone by that name.
George: Katie Andrews? Short brown hair, killer eyes, talks like one of those wind-up dolls with the key.

Jim: That's horrible, but why do you think any of this has to do with us.
Special Agent Hawkins: Because it has recently come to our attention that the four of you are no ordinary family. And these were no ordinary passengers. Mr. and Mrs. Powell, the government needs your help.
