Episode #20 UPDATED (audio probs again!)

My episode review of "Shadow" and "Hell House" can be found here.

I'm a spaz. Usually I check the episode before I post it, but this time I was in too much of a hurry. I had some of the music on the wrong track, so the volume was out of control. Sorry, guys.

Fave Quotes:

*Meg: Sam! Is that you? Oh my god! (smiles and goes and hugs him) What are you doing here? Sam: I'm just in town visiting friends. Meg: (looks around) Where are they? Sam: Well... they're not here right now.

*Sam: Yeah, this is... my brother Dean. Meg: Oh, this is Dean. Dean: (smiles) So you've heard of me. Meg: Oh yeah, I've heard of you. Nice... the way you treat your brother like luggage. Dean: (late to react) Sorry?

*Sam: You killed those two people for nothing. Meg: Baby, I'd kill a lot more for a lot less.


*Sam: That was your great idea? To burn the house down? Dean: People won't go in any more.

*Dean: I don't know, Sam. I mean, I hate to agree with authority figures of any kind, but you know, the cops might be right about this one.

*Harry: What are you guys doing here? Dean: What the hell are you doing here? Ed: Uh, we belong here, we're professionals. Dean: Professional what?

*Dean: I thought the legend said the Mordecai only goes after chicks. Sam: It does. Dean: Alright, well I mean that explains why it went after you, but why me?

*Sam: It kinda makes you wonder. Of all the things we've hunted, how many exist just because people believed in them?
