Dr. Miles J. Bennell: In my practice, I've seen how people have allowed their humanity to drain away. Only it happened slowly instead of all at once. They didn't seem to mind... All of us - a little bit - we harden our hearts, grow callous. Only when we have to fight to stay human do we realize how precious it is to us, how dear.

Wilma Lentz: There's no emotion. None. Just the pretense of it. The words, the gesture, the tone of voice, everything else is the same, but not the feeling.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: This is the oddest thing I've ever heard of. Let's hope we don't catch it. I'd hate to wake up some morning and find out that you weren't you.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: You really want to know?

Becky: Mmm-hmm.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: [after kissing her] Mmmm, you're Becky Driscoll, all right!

Jack Belicec: Stop trying to rationalize everything, will ya? Let's face it, we have a mystery on our hands!

Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman: Sure you have. A real one! Whose body was it, and where is it now? A completely normal mystery. Whatever it is, it's well within the bounds of human experience, and I don't think you ought to make any more of it.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Look, I wouldn't if I hadn't looked in Becky's cellar! How do you explain away the body I saw there?

Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman: I don't think you saw one there.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: You don't think I saw one here, either?

Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman: I know you did because three others saw it too.

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: But I dreamed up the second one?

Dr. Dan 'Danny' Kauffman: Doctors can have hallucinations too.

Becky: Miles, why don't you call Danny? Maybe he can help.

Becky: Well, what are you going to do?

Dr. Miles J. Bennell: Get help. I hope whatever's taking place is confined to Santa Mira!
