Trivia

The fictional town in which this Episode is set, Marquesas, is a nod to Moby Dick author Herman Melville. Melville's book is based in part on his own experiences as a whaler. He joined the crew of the "Acushnet" in early 1841 but deserted since he found the conditions on board unbearable. Melville deserted the ship at the first stop, Nuku Hiva, capital of the Marquesas islands. See more »

Quotes

Patrick Jane: Well, yes. That's why you use goats, and not babies or virgins for that matter.
Teresa Lisbon: Machado's no a goat.
