Mac: Okay, So, I'm getting Twilight with this. "Previously on..." The dead, the Fades, are walking the earth. And they can't touch and they're angry, and it looks like they're eating flesh in order to fight back, because flesh allows them to touch. I know, so far, so Pac-Man. And then there's these guys with super-powers called the Angelics. They're trying they need to stop these dead people. Particularly Neil and his friend Helen, who is a dead sort of Fade-like ghost, too. But she's on our side. Rrrrey. And Paul, my best friend, has found out that he's an Angelic. His violent dreams are surprisingly powerful for one so small-shouldered. Oh, and Paul has been getting on with a girl, which is extraordinary in and of itself. But you probably have to know him to understand that. Now, who's nicked my Twilight book set? Nano nano.
Jay: What kept you?
Paul: Therapy. I was with my therapist.
Paul: My ex-therapist.
Jay: Anything to be frightened of?
Paul: I grow wings when I ejaculate.
Jay: You know, that's quite a good line for you.
Mac: I could've been naked.
Paul: I've seen you naked.
Mac: I could've been masturbating.
Paul: I've seen you masturbating.
Mac: What, when?
Paul: The school trip to Calais.
Mac: You were awake...
Helen: You know, people misunderstand why Adam and Eve were thrown out of Eden. They say it was knowledge that caused them. The Fruit of Knowledge, that's a misreading. Wasn't knowledge that caused them, it was doubt. Doubt of what they were told, and so they couldn't see the beauty around them. And they weren't thrown out. Eden was still there, they were still in Eden. Only its beauty was lost to them. Their only beauty was lost to them. Well, I can see the beauty, so I'm lucky, aren't I?
Jay: Okay, that was a look I wasn't expecting.
Paul: What look?
Jay: I've seen boys pleased, I've seen boys look disappointed. I've never seen a boy look quiet so scared.
Paul: No, no, I'm not scared. I was just--I was thinking...
Jay: Thinking what? And you're not allowed to say "films" or what's-her-face from Mork & Mindy...
Paul: Pam Dawber.
Mac: Wow. It's a key. Am I supposed to break it off and--and give half to you and wear my bit around my neck... are we in love? Because I'm flattered, but...
Paul: It's to my house. Anytime--anytime things at home, your mum or your dad, 3 a.m., whenever. You just come to my place. Sleep in the sofa, sleep in my room, whatever you like. You're always welcome. Because you're family. I've cleared it with Mum.
Paul: You do know, don't you, that whatever happens with Jay, you'll always be more important to me, right?
Mac: Yeah. You do know I'm going to use this key to steal your sister's knickers, right?
Mac: Okay, So, I'm getting Twilight with this.
The episode contains numerous references to the Twilight novels, a series of novels that portray vampires as romantic figures that glitter in daylight.
Mac: (giving a hand gesture)
Mac flashes Paul the "Live long and prosper" gestured used by the Vulcans in the various Star Trek
movies and TV shows.
Jay: So, you're Superman, right?
