Bad news, Tiffany doesn't like you. The good news is Tiffany's dead! So... I'm sorry Nick. The other bad news is that Tiffany's spirit has been hitching a ride in your body. Intermittently.
— Ace

Turn that down! Your sister's fighting off a ghost!
— Victoria

Ace: "What else could it be?"
Bess: "I don't know. Maybe something supernatural?"
Nancy: "Right, because that's the go-to explanation."

Bess filled me in on what you guys did at the funeral. We're platanchors now, so she tells me things.
— Ace

Nancy won't give up on finding out what happened. And neither will I. I don't want to ask you to go, but I can't let George die. I'll stay with you. I'll stay with you 'till the end.
— Nick

Tiffany: "Keep Laura safe."
Nick: "I promise you, I will."
