Martha Jones is in the Hub lab preparing to do the autopsy on Owen while the rest of the team looks on. Jack arrives and tells everyone to stop until he gets back. He drives to a club and meets with a young girl, who is waiting for him. He asks her where "it" is and she warns that if she finds it, he'll owe her a favor. She uses Tarot cards to reveal that the people who found it and realized what it could do built a church on top of it. As Jack goes, the girl asks what he would do if she told him not to use it. Jack wonders why she doesn't know the answer. Once he's left, the girl admits that she does know the answer... and draws the Death card...

Episode Quotes
Owen: You've stopped flirting with me. I mean, it's all right. I wouldn't flirt with me in my condition either, but... Is it still necrophilia if I'm conscious?

Owen: I'm a headless chicken. I just haven't stopped running about.

Martha: You had the power to bring people back to life and you never told UNIT. Why?
Jack: They would've wanted to use it.

(as Owen mass-vomits alcohol)
Jack: Oh! Oh, that is the single most disgusting thing I have ever seen, and I know disgusting.

Owen: But eventually that will stop too. I'll fart my last fart. God, I'm going to really miss farting. and sex.
Jack: Sex more than farting, I hope.
Owen: You take these things for granted. It's only when they're slipping away you realise how amazing they are. This could be the last time I see these flecks or, you know, feel these bricks underneath my hands.
Jack: "Only in suffering do we recognise beauty".
Owen: Yeah, yeah! Who said that?
Jack: Proust.
Owen: You've read Proust?
Jack: Yeah. Well, no. We dated for a while, he was really immature.
Owen: You know, none of us know whether to take you seriously when you say those things.
Jack: When you've lived as long as I have, you don't make any more up.

Owen: I can't sleep, I can't eat, and I can't shag. And they are three of my favourite things.
Gwen: Owen!
Owen: I'm not the same, Gwen. I came back different. Hollow. Like I'm missing something. And I do not want to be like this. Okay? I'm ready.

Ianto: I have searched for the phrase "I shall walk the Earth and my hunger will know no bounds", but I keep getting redirected to Weight Watchers.

Owen: Jamie, they got you in for a round of chemo, have they?
Jamie Burton: Had that, it didn't work.
Owen: So why are you here?
Jamie Burton: They're trying to make me have it again. It didn't work though, the cancer just comes back, just makes my hair fall out. I'm gonna die. I might as well do it with eyebrows.
