Did You Know?


When Russell is questioning Sookie about her supernatural powers, she tries to insist that she is just an unremarkable human waitress, and he responds, sarcastically, "and I am Marie of Romania." This is a quote from Dorothy Parker's acerbic poem "Comment": "Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,/A medley of extemporanea;/And love is a thing that can never go wrong,/And I am Marie of Roumania." It is also a reference to the fact that Bram Stoker's novel 'Dracula' is set in Transylvania, now a part of modern-day Romania. See more »


When Eric is riding in the car with the King of Mississippi he says "shouldn't we have taken the I12 exit?" The King replies they aren't headed to Shreveport. If they are located in Jackson, I20 takes you directly to Shreveport. I12 is located to the South and there would be no reason to go that route. See more »


Jesus Velasquez: Eleggua and Chango. These guys are pretty fucking hard-core, dude. What do you offer them?
Lafayette Reynolds: Huh?
Jesus Velasquez: Lafayette, man, these guys, they have to be appeased, bro, or else they will fuck you up. Seriously, I sing for Eleggua. I put out shots of tequila for Chango.
Lafayette Reynolds: He drink 'em?
Jesus Velasquez: No, smart-ass. He blesses 'em, and then I drink them.
Lafayette Reynolds: Well, maybe I should put out a couple of shots for him right now.
