- In Frankenstein: Dead and Alive, Michael and Carson pursue a couple of replicants:
- Billy Pilgrim from The Darkest Evening Of The Year is an Affably Evil career killer whose choice in books ultimately reflects and influences his choices in life. He believes life has no purpose but to die (though a few moments in the course of the story make him wonder) but nonetheless often has a humorous, friendly approach even to those he's about to whack.
- Ticktock in general, especially after Tommy meets Del and tries unsuccessfully to figure her out. Del is short for Deliverance Payne, a reference to her birth. Her mom is just as endearingly screwy as her. Also this:
"Sounds like Pillsbury Doughboy gone punk," Sal said.
- Also from Ticktock, Tommy's Inner Monologue rant during a particularly tense scene, in which he berates himself for not just going to his mother's house for dinner.
- In Mr. Murder, agents describe their perfect, genetically-engineered assassin, and why they had to program him to do normal things, like go to the movies.
"Look, he's supposed to be the perfect assassin. Programmed. No remorse, no second thoughts. Hard to catch, harder to kill. And if something does go wrong, he can never be traced to his handlers. He doesn't know who we are or why we want these people terminated, so he can't turn state's evidence. He's nothing, a shell, a totally hollow man. But he's got to function in society, be inconspicuous, act like an ordinary Joe, do things real people do in their spare time. If we had him sitting around hotel rooms staring at walls, maids would comment to one another, think he's weird, remember him."
- Most conversations the Tock family has during meals in Life Expectancy.
