Quotes

Constable Benton Fraser: [referring to his father's ghost] He's not really here. I know that. It's all in my mind. It's just that he refuses to stay there, or rather, he refuses to LEAVE there. I really don't understand it, but I tell you it's beginning to wear a little thin. I mean, does he think I'm completely ignorant? I bet the next thing he'll do is try to start a fire. You know Ray, I have half a mind to tell him to pack up and move out.

Due South at its best
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the episodes that combines all the aspects that made this such a wonderful series: credible (for television, anyway) crime plot, great cast which allows wonderful character studies (one feels depth of character from the stars to the smallest of parts), magical realism that seems perfectly "natural", sly literary references that give a chuckle to those who get them but do not alienate or lessen the impact for those who do not), wonderful eclectic music choices, and that wonderful quirky sense of humour that manages to poke fun at everyone. Paul Haggis' scripts always impressed me with their ability to juggle all those aspects and this episode was one of the best.
