I was talking about the series with my wife this evening while downloading Owner's ep 22. and realized I couldn't remember the quote from the start of Double Share.

I've re-listened to the opening 2:50 of the episode an I'm not hearing one. Is there a quote I'm missing here?

Nate did you decide to go a different direction for this one?

The quote I had picked out here was from Neuromancer...

"The sky over the port was the color of a tv set tuned to a dead channel."

But three things made me pull it.

1. It's not in the public domain.
2. Does he know what a "dead channel" on a "tv set" looks like?
3. I was thinking that the whole first line thing was getting too gimmicky.

I should have replaced it, but I still don't know what I should have replaced it with.

Makes sense to me.

I like that some of your quotes have been a bit more obscure. and while maybe a bit gimmicky I thought it worked with the story essentially being autobiographical by Ishmael, your formative years often affect you for life.
