  • Raoul De Chagny: Christine, there is no Phantom of the Opera!
  • Nadir Khan (narrating): I am sorry to say that there was, indeed, a Phantom of the Opera, but for your peace of mind I will admit that he was not, literally, a ghost. Usually, the word ghost refers to a supernatural being, a shadow of something past, an ethereal creature that used to be human before being dead. However, sometimes there are creature whose misfortune is so unspeakable that being dead would probably be a better fate. Our Phantom, which I assure you, was very much alive, is, or was, one of these creatures: and that is why he called himself a Phantom, or a ghost, despite his being not dead yet.

“’LET ME HELP.’ A hundred years or so from now, I believe, a famous novelist will write a classic using that theme. He’ll recommend those three words even over ’I LOVE YOU.’”

Star Trek, The City on the Edge of Forever (1x28) The lines above come from the very following episode (1x29).

Bryan Fuller worked for different Star Trek shows multiple times, I wouldn’t be surprised if he intended this as a tribute to Kirk and Spock… ?

The first one seems quite obvious since the original line is truly iconic, but the second is a way more subtle, as probably very few people payed attention to those lines and their potential double-meaning. It also might be a mere coincidence, but given Fuller’s reputation (his Star Trek background and his… affection towards Hannigram) I don’t really think so.

And what better than a tribute to the original space husbands™ through Hannibal and Will?

(edit: see also this)

Bonus:

and

A person (lacking mastery) holds a thought in mind, whether it is beneficial to him or not, without knowing the result which will come from it. It is like a child who holds a rattle in his hand and hits his head with the rattle and cries with the pain, and yet does not throw the rattle away. There are many who keep in their mind a thought of illness or a thought of unkindness done to them by someone and suffer from it, yet not knowing what it is that makes them suffer so, nor understanding the reason of their suffering.

You know, we never did finish that little test of ours.  You know, that whole thing where you could read my mind. - Jaz

Nope, don’t know what you’re talking about. - Dalton

Want to give it another shot? - Jaz

Maybe some other time. Maybe later. - Dalton

As in never. - Jaz

Never sounds good. - Dalton

Well, fantastic.- Jaz

Look, here’s the thing.  I don’t think I need to prove what I already know…‘cause then it just becomes bragging. - Dalton
