Episode Quotes
Carl: (opening narration) Remember the penny arcades that used to be so much fun when you were a kid? For a handful of coins you could test your strength, your skill at a pinball machine. Those arcades were a lot of things to a lot of kids, but there was one particular arcade that represented something special for me. It was here that began one of the most terrifying experiences of my life.

Tony: (to Carl) Kolchak, when you get back to the swindle and fraud story, write about how you're employed here. Which is one of the biggest swindles in memory!

Carl: Listen to me Markoff. This is your body, here. You are dead. You are not Ryder Bond, you will never be Ryder Bond. Leave Ryder Bond alone. Return to your own body!

Carl: (to Bond in the church) You know what they're gonna do when they take you out of here? They're gonna put you in a hospital. Then you know the first thing they're gonna do? They're gonna give you a sedative...A SEDATIVE! You know what that means...that's just what he's (Carl points up at the spectre) waiting for!

Ryder Bond: He keeps staring at me, makes noises, won't let me sleep. Lord...Lord, he's creeping into my skin...
