Sadie: Well, you’ve split to the right place. Frank, let’s save that dinosaur!

Pterodactyl Jones (P.J.): Oh, slow down, doll.

Sadie: Well, how fast was I going?

P.J.: About 90.

Sadie: Suppose I let my foot off the pedal.

P.J.: Let’s say you hit the brakes.

Sadie: Suppose I hit the gas instead.

P.J.: How fast can that thing go?

Sadie: Suppose we find out.

P.J.: Seems dangerous.

Sadie: Ain’t that just like a dame?

P.J.: Took the words right out of my mouth.

Sadie: Suppose I did. Want me to put ‘em back in?

P.J.: If you promise not to do it the hard way.

Sadie: Is there any other way- oh, Frank! You’re right! Talking like this is just infectious.


A portrait of Patton Oswalt as Pterodactyl Jones, the house detective of the most haunted hotel in New York City, The Opal, and his dinosaur-ghost sidekick, Harvey. Their adventures can be heard on the Beyond Belief episode “The Devil and Mr. Jones” on The Thrilling Adventure Hour.

Patton’s likeness still isn’t as close as I’d hoped, but Harvey makes up for it, I think.

Soon to be colored and turned into a cigarette card. Stay tuned.

I wanted to do a romantic comedy with Jack and Ianto, and the obstacle between them getting together is a pterodactyl! But Gareth added a wonderful depth to it, when, unseen by Jack, he starts to cry at the end. Obviously, the unspoken thing is that Ianto wants to get in to Torchwood so he can keep his girlfriend Lisa alive, so that’s a beautiful bit of empathising by Gareth that wasn’t in the script. That’s the extraordinary thing about this cast: they never stop creating.

Fragments : Ianto’s story

“Ianto Jones, born August 19th 1983. Able student but not exceptional. One minor conviction for shoplifting in your teens. Number of temporary jobs, mainly a drifter, until two years ago you join the Torchwood Institute in London. Junior researcher. Girlfriend, Lisa Hallett.”

Beyond Belief- Jones on Third
  • Sadie:Go ahead, Jonesy, admit it. It was a dame. A dame took the delivery, a dame did, didn't she, the dame!
  • Pterodactyl Jones:It was a dame.
  • Sadie:Did she sign her name with a curly Q the same shape as the crook of her grin?
  • Frank:Oh, oh! Did she handle the pen in such a way as to make other pens jealous?
  • Sadie:Was she a parade of referees upon bicycles, all bells and whistles? Tell us, PJ, darling! By what metaphor shall you describe this dame?
  • Pterodactyl Jones:...she was very attractive. (pause) By which I mean she was the heartburn sob story! The whole enchilada!

Reverie (@ReverieLove) | “1 Syllable”

One thing that is truly beautiful throughout Reverie’s discography is that her songs pertain to everyone. Of course this song is from the perspective of a woman going through a shitty breakup, but if you pay attention to her discography, she has jams that pertains to both male & female, from one culture to another, they can all connect to one or another. Rev is an incredible artist. For those in the IE, y'all can catch Reverie performing tonight at The Barn at UCR. Pterodactyl Jones (Curtiss King & Noa James) will be opening up tonight for Rev.

My Personal Favorite Bar(s):

“All the red flags waving at me,

tell me that I’m tripppin’.

When I’m dippin’ through the evidence

complain about your privacy.

It’s in my fuckin’ face

how could you still fuckin’ lie to me?

I try to keep calm but,

I feel it in my guts that you fuckin’ other bitches

when you callin’ me a slut.

I used to interrupt but eventually I just take it,

and I felt so ugly bout myself whenever I’d be naked”.
