"Journeyman: Emily (#1.9)" (2007)
Katie Vasser: Listen, we need to figure out what's happening to you, Dan. We need to figure it out so we can fix it.

Dan Vasser: Uh, Emily. She's probably around 15 now. Foster kid like you were. At least, that's what you told me when we were together.

"Journeyman: The Legend of Dylan McCleen (#1.5)" (2007)
Elliot Langley: The rules haven't changed much since Einstein. Ultimately Whether it's wormholes or warp drives, time travel requires you to go 186,000 miles per second.
Dan Vasser: The speed of light.
Elliot Langley: That's the rub because, so far, nothing has demonstrated an ability to do that.
Dan Vasser: What about tachyons?
Elliot Langley: Theoretical particles never proven to exist.
Dan Vasser: So, time travel's impossible.
Elliot Langley: No, just not proven. Five hundred years ago, we knew Pluto didn't exist. Five years ago, we knew it was a planet. Now, we know it's not. Did Pluto change? No. Did our understanding of Pluto? Yes.

Katie Vasser: Sounds like you're enjoying yourself.
Dan Vasser: It has its adrenaline moments, that's all.
Katie Vasser: And the Livia part?
Dan Vasser: No.
Katie Vasser: You're an adrenaline guy, Dan. You liked the action when you were gambling. Maybe you want two women in different time zones.
Dan Vasser: Katie...
Katie Vasser: No, I mean, you know, technically, it wouldn't be cheating if it's in the past. I was sleeping with Jack, maybe you should sleep with Livia back there.

Livia Beale: Okay, so it's not a perfect system.

Livia Beale: Are you gonna steal Jack's car?
Dan Vasser: If he's still living where I think he's living. And there she is. He looked after it like it was his own baby. I remember he left a spare here once.
Livia Beale: One of those magnet things? That's kind of dumb for a cop.
Dan Vasser: Yeah, we were all dumb once. Here's hoping this is his time. It's not here. What are you doing?
Livia Beale: You know why I still wear hairpins? It's called being prepared. It actually works if you...
[car starts]

Dan Vasser: It wasn't exactly tax deductible.

Dan Vasser: This wasn't exactly my best year.

Dan Vasser: See? That's exacltly what I mean. I'd rather people think I'm a crack addict than think I'm crazy.
Katie Vasser: Where'd you trip to this time, Dan?
Dan Vasser: You'd never believe me.
Katie Vasser: Try me.
Dan Vasser: Remember that guy I told you about? His name is Neal Gaines. Now I think I am tracking his life. And I think I just helped him start a family.

Nicole Gaines: Do you regret it? Having a kid?
Dan Vasser: I'd do anything right now to get back to him.


"Journeyman: Game Three (#1.3)" (2007)

Katie Vasser: Dan, on my current list of weird, that doesn't even make the top ten.
