"Tru Calling: Star Crossed (#1.6)" (2003)
Tru Davies: Why isn't this completely freaking you out?
Davis: I've seen a lot of strange things here. Very little shocks me.

Davis: You're saving lives. It's - it's a gift.
Tru Davies: No, candles are gifts. Boots, bath salts maybe, but this - this is - I don't know what this is. Do you?
Davis: I don't. Not yet. But tell me Tru, how does it feel to know that somewhere out there someone's about to die and they're going to ask you for help?

Davis: You memorize the license plate?
Tru Davies: I memorize everything I can. Once they ask for help, I lose the body, any evidence. Only thing I can go on is what I can remember.

Davis: Just becasue it looks like an accident doesn't mean that it is. You should know Tru, in our business, things aren't always what they appear to be.
Tru Davies: Thanks Davis... I've never had anyone help me before.
Davis: I've never had anyone to help.

Davis: Well, if it weren't for you, they wouldn't even have that.
Tru Davies: If it weren't for *us*... Sometimes just being able to talk to someone makes it a lot easier, you know?


"Tru Calling: Pilot (#1.1)" (2003)
Davis: Are you sure you're interested in working here? Because, I'll be honest. Most girls as pretty as you, they come here - well, they're - they're dead.
[Davis chuckles]
Tru Davies: I'll be applying to medical school in the fall. And... my advisor said it would be a good idea.

Davis: It's call the crypt. It's where every unnatural death in the city comes to rest. Waiting for an autopsy.
Tru Davies: You said "unnatural" death.
Davis: Most of them. Because if there's even a *hint* that a death might be unnatural: murder, suicide. They come here.

Tru Davies: You said - I mean someone said - that the bodies brought here, they're unnatural deaths.
Davis: Some of them, yes.
Tru Davies: So those people, they shouldn't actually be dead, not yet anyway.
Davis: Is it hard to see people dead before their time? Yes. But Tru, if you're going to work here, you've got to accept the fact that there's nothing you can do about it... That was a job offer in case you missed it.

Davis: A pretty girl's nothing but trouble.


"Tru Calling: Haunted (#1.5)" (2003)
Tru Davies: You think I won't pass? I nailed every question you asked, plus the ones you made up.
Davis: No. No. That's not what I meant. I'm sure you'll ace them. I just - I just meeant that sometimes - I get the feeling that some people don't belong here... and some people do.
Tru Davies: So which am I? I belong here or not?
Davis: What do you think?

Tru Davies: You ever have, like, one of the greatest days of your life, I mean, a really great day, and then you feel like the whole thing got erased.
Davis: You're assuming I've ever had a great day.

Davis: It's not easy, is it? Carrying the burden you do.
Tru Davies: Excuse me?
Davis: Some would call it a blessing, others a curse. I see it more as a... calling.
Tru Davies: Davis?
Davis: I know more than you think I know, Tru. About what you can do. About how you help the dead get another chance at life. Have a seat, Tru. It's time I tell you what I know.


"Tru Calling: Drop Dead Gorgeous (#1.13)" (2004)
Tru Davies: Oh, hey, if a reporter named Michelle Carrey comes looking for me, just don't answer any questions.
Davis: Questions? What kind of questions?
Tru Davies: The kind we don't want to answer.
Davis: Oh, that kind. Right.

Michelle Carey: Well, then let me tell you something else that I have imagined. I did a little research. And it turns out that Tru isn't the first young woman to mysteriously pop up in the nick of time and save the lives of total strangers. There was another... before her.
Davis: I asked you to leave.
Michelle Carey: Tell Tru, I'm sorry I missed her. But I'll be sure to catch her next time.

Davis: [Speaking of Michelle] She does know something that I've known for a long time. Not that she'll ever be able to prove it, mind you. And maybe I should have told you sooner, but I didn't want to confuse you even more.
Tru Davies: Davis.
Davis: ...Before you, there was someone else. A woman. She relived days. She could prevent death. Once you asked me why I believed you, how readily I accepted what you can do. And that's why. Because I met her. And as many times as you read her file, it's never going to be in there. It was your mother. What you can do, she could do too.


"Tru Calling: Brother's Keeper (#1.3)" (2003)
Davis: Here's what I-I think, Tru. We're all some place for some reason. Just sometimes we need to accept what that reason is.

Davis: [to Tru] You know for someone who doesn't like it here, you sure are around a lot. You ever think that you just... belong here?


"Tru Calling: Valentine (#1.12)" (2004)
[last lines]
Davis: You have a calling.
Tru: A calling is something you're destined to do. Something that gives your life meaning. Something that makes you happy. What I do, it feels more like a curse.
Davis: [sighs] Look, you were chosen for a reason. Whoever gave you this - this gift knew what they were doing. They saw the same things in you that I see in you: strength, compassion, conviction. Curse or calling, love it or hate it, you are the right person for the job. There's no doubt in my mind.

Lindsay Walker: How sweet are our guys? I mean, Valentine's Day rolls around and they both put together fabulous weekends for their respective hotties.
[Davis enters and heads towards a computer]
Tru: Don't you just love this time of year?
Davis: Valentine's Day is a sham perpetuated by the floral and greeting card industries to move product.
[clears throat as he looks at the computer screen]
Tru: You'll have to excuse Davis. He's... very single.
Lindsay Walker: Shocker.


"Tru Calling: Past Tense (#1.4)" (2003)
Davis: I've been listening to your mildly entertaining stories all day. Obviously, something's going on in your life, I don't know if your in trouble or what. I just hope that one day you realize you can be honest with me.


"Tru Calling: Putting Out Fires (#1.2)" (2003)
Davis: Look Tru. I know the morgue is not exactly party central but - don't worry. Things will pick up.
[Davis leaves]
Tru: ...That's what I'm afraid of.


"Tru Calling: The Longest Day (#1.11)" (2004)
[last lines]
Tru Davies: So, you were right. Someone was supposed to die.
Davis: Well, he just had to die differently so someone else could live.
Tru Davies: I should have been able to save them both.
Davis: You can change events, but you - you can't change fate, Tru.
Tru Davies: I can do things that probably no one else can. Sometimes, even that doesn't feel like enough.
Davis: Sometimes, it isn't.
