Some time later, Sam retrieves his voice messages while Dean heads out to pick up some grub at the diner down the street. He's halfway across the motel's parking lot when he spies the ancient proprietor chatting with the local constabulary and pointing in his general direction. Dean whips out his cell and calls Sam's, leaving the terse message, "Dude. Five-oh. Take off." Sam bolts through some back window, or something, as Dean finds himself busted for his fake credit card and his fake federal ID. As the lead deputy from the bridge slams Dean onto the hood of his prowler, we're treated not to the shrieking strings, but rather to a set of blaring horns as we follow the camera down Dean's throat and into the commercial break.
Back from the break, we find Dean smirking his way through a bit of chit-chat with Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane in the latter's jailhouse interrogation room, and this is all pretty pointless. I mean, I could go on for several sentences describing the many wonders of Jensen Ackles's eyelashes, but what's the point? So here's the gist of the following scene, in brief: The good sheriff believes Dean's involved in the Centennial Highway murders, despite the fact that, as Dean points out, Dean was three years old at the time of the first disappearance in 1982. The sheriff's rummaged through the contents of Dear Old Dad's motel room, and has found Dad's occult-filled day planner, which he slams down on the desk. Dean's face falls at that, for as we'll later learn, Dear Old Dad goes nowhere without his occult-filled day planner, but Dean manages to remain silent, most especially when Roscoe flips to an entry that reads "Dean 35-111." The one amusing moment comes when Roscoe lets loose with the clichéd, "I don't think you realize how much trouble you're in." Dean too casually wonders, "We talking 'misdemeanor trouble' or 'squeal like a pig trouble'?" Heh. And...that's about it. Next!
Sam raps on the office door of a run-down junkyard and soon meets the famed Joseph Welch, who's played by a total Hey! It's That Guy! whose name escapes me at the moment. We cover a lot of territory both already familiar and not terribly necessary before Sam, not quite believing Joseph's claims regarding his "happy marriage" to Constance, calls Joseph on it all with an explanation of what, precisely, a Woman in White (also known as a "Weeping Woman") is. These women have popped up throughout history, apparently, in places as far-flung as Hawaii, Mexico, Arizona, and Indiana, but each one's story is pretty much the same: Her husband cheated on her, so she drowned their kids, freaked, and killed herself. Now, each woman's spirit restlessly wanders down roads and "waterways" in search of other unfaithful bastards, and if they find one, they kill him. And we're supposed to be rooting against them...why, exactly? Oh, right: The dead-kids thing. Whatever. Joseph, stung by the accusation, sets his lower lip a-trembling in outrage and denies everything. Everything except for cheating on his wife, of course. Sam, armed with the information he needed, bolts. And...scene.
