The Dead Zone (2002–2007)
Johnny Smith: I had the perfect life until I was in a coma for six years. And then I woke up, and found my fiancé
Johnny Smith: married to another man. My son
Johnny Smith: doesn't know who I am. Everything has changed, including me. One touch
Johnny Smith: and I could see things. Things that happened. Things that will happen. You should see what I see...
Johnny Smith: We've put a man on the moon, but we haven't come up with a hospital gown that doesn't totally humiliate you.
Reverend Purdy: I destroy my enemy when I make him my friend.
Johnny Smith: You're a figment of his imagination.
Death: Oh, please, don't get personal.
Dana: Airline company's always your best friend right after the plane goes down.
Conrad: [talking about Sara] She's still got feelings for you.
Johnny Smith: Why do you say that?
Conrad: C'mon, what kind of psychic are you?
Dana: Tell me you weren't holding Sarah's hand while you were making love to me.
Greg Stillson: Anything about me in there?
Johnny Smith: Uh, no, this is the sports section.
Greg Stillson: No, I mean, is there anything about me...
[points to Johnny's forehead]
Greg Stillson: In there?
Johnny Smith: We were always twenty minutes late to every movie we went to! How did ET get to Earth? I don't know. Why did the Empire strike back? Beats me.
Dr. Janet Gibson: We've done everything we know how to do.
Bruce Lewis: But you haven't done everything Johnny knows how to do.
Johnny Smith: This mine seems to know me by name.
Walt: What the hell's that supposed to mean?
Johnny Smith: Wish I knew.
Johnny Smith: Worst case scenario, I'll break out the blow torch and we'll fire that sucker up from the inside out.
Bruce Lewis: You're always wrapped up in this 'Chicken Little' thing.
Johnny Smith: Who's Chicken Little?
Johnny Smith: Okay, one of my visions was a little off.
Bruce Lewis: 'A little off'. Do you understand what it means in the context of the rest of humanity for your brain to be 'a little off'? That puts you in another galaxy far, far away.
Johnny Smith: Do you believe in miracles, Reverend?
Reverend Purdy: I'd have to, or I'd have to find a new line of work.
Sara: Don't do anything foolish.
Johnny Smith: Yeah, that's me. John 'Don't do anything foolish' Smith.
Reverend Purdy: I know this isn't the life you would've chosen. But is the life that has chosen YOU. And you cannot deny the possibility that some other force is guiding you, choosing what you see.
Johnny Smith: Just say his name Reverend, I know you're dying to.
Reverend Purdy: Destiny, Johnny. It is your destiny to help people. I truly believe that.
[while watching Greg Stillson discuss politics in Washington, DC]
Johnny Smith: Did he just say "diddle"?
Johnny Smith: One thing I've learned about you, Gene. If you don't know the people, then you know the people that know the people.
[Inviting Purdy to the carnival]
Johnny Smith: I promise not to take you anywhere near the Hoochie Coochie Show.
Reverend Purdy: Ah, the Hoochie Coochie Show is my bread and butter!
Greg Stillson: Now, Sonny, you know we can't hide anything from Johnny Smith.
Sonny Elliman: He's been asking questions about you.
Greg Stillson: The wrong kind of questions?
Sonny Elliman: Not just that. It's like he already knows what he's looking for.
Greg Stillson: [turns and stares at Sonny] The psychic thing freaks you out, doesn't it?
Greg Stillson: Gene Purdy seems to think you're the greatest thing since Christian Rock.
Greg Stillson: I'd call first, but I figure you'd sense I was coming anyway.
Reverend Purdy: Just what in God's name are you doing?
Johnny Smith: Oh Gene, I do so many things in God's name. You're going to have to be more specific.
Johnny Smith: What are you, the Vince Lombardi of existentialism, man?
Greg Stillson: Guess we never know what our fellow man is capable of, do we?
Reverend Purdy: [stares at Stillson] No. Only God knows what we're truly capable of.
David Lewis: Deliver him from his sins, and let him partake of Thy redemption
