When Vicki is hired by an Antiquities Dealer to find a rare artifact, she and Henry find themselves up against a number of dangerous people vying for the same object. And what's more, nobody except Vicki seems to be aware of the mystical object's own deadly nature.
This episode could also be called "The Inevitable Fate of the Goblet" ...
Many thanks to Sybille for these great caps.
QuotesWritten by Travis McDonald
Vicki (to Henry): Wow - somebody's cranky!
Henry: I came as soon as you called me. If I had known it was a simple recovery case, I would have ... stopped for a bite first
Henry (sniffing the air) There's something here - it's pain and fear and hate. Suffering ... Vicki: - We're in a no-town motel - worst thing going on is some guy getting busy with Mary from "accounts payable".
Jacob Keller: You certainly got the most unconventional methods I've ever seen - your friend is like a blood hound
Vicki: You've got the blood part right.
Vicki (on the phone, using a southern accent and trying to sweet talk a guy):
Aren't you precious! Now I bet you're just as cute as a speckled pup in a red wagon - shame you live so far away.
Vicki: Oh well, Gary, you are just sweeter than a Tennessee (She spots Henry) - Williams.
(She hangs up and turns to Henry)
Henry: Do one thing for me. Tell me you've always depended on the kindness of strangers.
Henry (also in southern accent) : Well, if that don't put the pepper in the gumbo, I don't know what would.
Mike: Aaaah - this can't be good.
Vicki: Well - thanks for the warm welcome
Mike: Hey - any other time but a homicide, right? So ...what? Are you going to tell me he was killed by a bog monster? Or a basilisk?
Vicki: Is that your lucky tie?
Mike: It's just a tie.
Vicki: It's just your lucky tie. Who were you hoping to get lucky with?
Mike: I'm just covering the bases
Vicki: (looking at Kate) Eeeevery one. So you went out celebrating, wearing your lucky tie - with her!
Mike: Yeah! Entirely professional. (Vicki looks sceptical)
Mike: It's just a tie Vicki!
In the no-name hotel.
Henry: This isn't exactly a place I've visited twice - even in a deja vu
Vicki to H: Is a drink an implied sexual advance?
Henry: Other than our strange sexless relationship we seem to share, I don't have much experience in the world of dating.
Vicki: Really? So you don't get your groove on before you put the bite on?
Henry: My relationships are usually intense and passionate from the first glance. I don't need to make a sexual advance .... I am one.
Vicki: I hate it when you do that.
Henry: I know that.
Henry: If it's any consolation, I believe it takes much more than a silk accessory to win a woman over.
Vicki: Don't you have some kind of lucky shirt? Or .., I don't know .. socks or something?
Henry: Well, I do have a bonnet that Anne Boleyn gave to me right before she tried to poison me, and I am stil here, so I guess that's lucky.
Vicki: Forget I asked
Vicki: And then ..... something happened
Henry: Something like ... ?
Vicky: Like ... we kinda ... died ..
Vicki: You lied to me!
Keller: I haven't even said anything yet!
Henry: What's the rush?
Vicki: We gotta go see a man about a box.
Vicki: Call it a hunch.
Henry: A hunch is when you think it's going to rain tomorrow - this is a play-by-play.
Vicki: I don't care what you say ... lucky tie means a date.
Mike: Where in hell did that come from?
Vicki: I know - two cops out for a beer after work - but isn't that how we started?
Mike: Aaaah - well, yeah .. that and a 10-37
Vicki: Yes, we'll always have aggravated assault
Mike: Okay, look - did I miss something here? I feel like I've walked into the middle of a fight that we haven't even had yet
Vicki: A guy and a girl can't go out for a drink, without it being a date, I mean, even if he's wearing his lucky tie.
Henry: I wouldn't know. Aside from out strange ....
Vicki: I know, we have a strange relationship and you've never been much for dating
Henry: Why do I feel like I don't have to be in this conversation?
Vicki: Makes sense ... doesn't it - them ...
Henry: Well, It's not like you snapped him up - and with him seeing someone, you might wanna take this opportunity to move on as well ... to someone special - someone who deserves you.
Vicki: Right - someone who will be snacking on a different girl in his bed every night of the week?
Henry: Everybody has their flaws. Speaking of which ...
Vicki: I know. I called before you had time to ... (points at passing maid)
What about her? She looks like your type ..
Vicki: You died, I died - everyone died.
Henry: If I might say so, you're looking awfully appealing for somebody who's dead
Vicki: I may have been marked by that thing - but I am not gonna be fate's bitch!
Coreen (to Kellerman about Vicki) She was a little weird this morning - she gets like that sometimes. But you have trust her because it's when she's the craziest that she's the most right!
Benoit Fournois (to Kellerman, being duckwalked into the room by Henry): Your goons may have brought me here, but that won't get you the box!
Henry: Be careful who you call a goon!
Coreen: to Henry after he used his power voice: I will never get tired of the way that you do that - it's awesome
Henry smiles wickedly.
Mike: Actually, the only thing that would be strange is if there was nothing strange.
Vicki: Look at you - you're learning!
Vicki: Henry and I saw him before we stopped the other murder
Mike: Another murder?
Vicki: Yeah, but it's alright - we already stopped it.
Mike: You stopped a murder?
Vicki: Mike - Stay with me!
Henry: OK - so ... Vicki woke up babbling about a broken goblet, fate and ... told you to keep him here and then ran out?
Coreen: I think she's finally snapped.
Coreen: It's a symbol for a secret society called The Knights of Babylon
Vicki: The Knights of Babylon?
Coreen: One of your lesser known secret societies ...
Vicki: Pandora's Box? As in "Pandora's Box"?
Coreen: The one and only.
Vicki: The one Zeus gave her and told her never to open -
Coreen: But she did - and released all the misfortunes of mankind
Vicki: Just once - ONCE couldn't a myth be a myth!
Coreen: I've been reading up on it. A lot of scholars say it wasn't Pandora's fault. They say there is no living creature that can handle the box without giving in to the temptation to open it. I think we'd prove them wrong on that one though - I mean - who would be dumb enough to unleash a tidalwave of evil into the world?
Vicki: Yeah - who'd do that ....
Mike: Ok - so everything else you've called has come true - the woman dropping the tray, the guy whistling at the front desk ...
Henry: Even finding a free parking space in this part of town - now that's eerie!
Henry: You'd die for him, wouldn't you? (Vicki nods)
Henry: I'll be happy when this is sealed up in the wall of my apartment.
Vicki: It's been a long day.
Henry: I know - and I haven't ...
Vicki: ... You haven't fed yet - I know.
Vicki: I wanted to thank you for everything you did today - everything you did in the last few hours ... days ... day
Henry: To tell you the truth, I don't have experience of anything except this last time.
Vicki: You ended the world for me 'cause you believed I can bring it back. You trusted me.
Henry: Trust can be extremely stimulating.
Vicki: It can at that.
Henry: Do you mind?
(Vicki nods no and Henry bites her neck)
