Hawkeye says he too used to take comfort in the afterlife, but while he was studying medicine, he and some other students tried to "reconcile spirit with matter." They put scales under each corner of a dying man's bed -- but nothing happened. "He weighed the same in death as he did in life," says Hawkeye. Hmmm. That's not what the Atkins people say! As Hawkeye rambles on about no spirit leaving the man's body, his words are drowned out (for Henry) by a rumbling noise for a few seconds. "I fear my mind is giving way," he says. Hawkeye pays that no mind. "You going over the ridge tomorrow with the rest of them?" he says. Henry nods. "You prepared to die?" Henry doesn't say anything. Hawkeye says he fears that soon enough Henry will be able to answer his own questions about the afterlife, like, THANKS FOR THE MORALE BOOST.
Skeet and Keel wander around the woods. "We're lost, Keel," says Skeet, but Keel doesn't think so. At least, he pretends he doesn't think so, and insists the path is just over there. "We've passed that tree twice already," complains Skeet. Keel says that the trees seem to be rearranging themselves, but his lame excuses are interrupting by a rumbling noise, and then lights bobbing up and down, and just like the police truck from before, the lights look absolutely nothing like actual headlights, but it turns out that that's what they are, only this time they're on ATVs being driven by some wacky teenagers, who circle around and stop by the SQ guys. "There are your ghost lights," says Skeet, all raining on Keel's parade. The ATV riders take off their helmets. The girl says, pleasantly, "You're not from around here, are you?" and the guy says, a little annoyed, that they almost ran them over, like I guess it's Skeet and Keel's fault that they were almost mowed down by quads being raced around the woods in the middle of the night. Keel does his "we hunt weird things but it's not like The X-Files, honest" routine and Skeet explains that the Jacobsen kids saw something out here the other day. "They saw a ghost," says the guy. The girl says her boyfriend has started to hear creepy things at the Circle Mart, where he works. So she's out quadding with someone other than her boyfriend? In Virginia, doesn't that amount to adultery? Keel asks where the Circle Mart is. "Across the highway," she says, and points. Behind a few trees is said highway, with cars and trucks zipping along merrily. "That wasn't there before," whispers Skeet to Keel, who says, "I know."
