In New Orleans, an attractive Cajun woman, Marie Tourette, approaches the Enterprise and Bill and Carney spot her immediately. She waves to them but it take a moment to realize that she's waving to Grey, standing behind them. The captain goes down while a young Cajun man, Sebastian, watches from nearby. When Grey approaches Marie, she greets him as if they old acquaintances. More than willing to take advantage of the situation, Grey goes with her. Once she takes Grey to her carriage, she calls him Gabriel and continues talking as if they know each other. Grey has no objection and gets in the carriage with her, and Marie says that she's taking him home...

Episode Quotes
Grey: She's particular.
Carney: She's just young, that's all.
Bill: And Cajun. You'd have to speak French.
Grey: Not for long.

Papite Roget: Your journey back has been a long one. Sit if you are tired.
Grey: What do you know about my journey?
Papite Roget: The journey back from death is always long.

Sebastian: It doesn't make any difference to me if you say you're Gabriel or not. It doesn't make any difference to anyone. But to Marie, you be Gabriel.
Grey: It matters to me who I am.

Carney: Any luck, Mr. Blake?
Bill: What's luck, Carney?
Carney: Well, I meant, did you find Captain Holden?
Bill: Do you like New Orleans?
Carney: Yes, yes, I like it.
Bill: Yeah, I like New Orleans, too. I like the food, I like the women, I like the wine. Not necessarily in that order.
Carney: I know what you mean.
Bill: Well, if you know what I mean, what the devil are you asking me about Captain Holden for?
