At another table, Mrs. Armstrong, wearing a light blue sling on her right arm, drones on to Sam that she's not surprised the spirit world chose to make contact with her. "I'm something of a... natural sensitive." Multi-tasking, Sam tries to listen like he believes her, while he attempts to keep track of his eyes as they roll clear across the floor. I think one just bounced up into that fountain. "I can sense that about you, Candace, that whole... sensitive thing." Is he flirting? What would Ruby say? Ruby's host might be relieved. Er... not that there's anything going on there. Only a demonic mind would imply such a thing. (I may have gotten e-mail about my Sam/Ruby innuendo being worded too strongly, but I'll never tell. My lips are sealed. I take the fifth. I'll never... tell. Ahem.) Candace says, "So what did you say you were calling your book?" That should totally be their cover, all the time, don't you think? The original premise for the show was a roving reporter. I'm glad we have our hunters, but I like the tie-in. Sam says, "Oh, well, um -- well the working title is Supernatural." SHOUT OUT! Wait. Can they shout out to themselves? Should they? Does it count? I get the feeling Jared Padalecki felt a little silly, there. "Yeah, I've been crossing the country gathering stories like yours. Anyways, you were telling me about your encounter." As she explains how she saw the apparition and started to run, Sam gets an eyeful of Wes making out with Hope, and he can't believe what he's seeing. Realizing he's been ignoring his subject, Sam asks if the ghost chased her. Candace Armstrong says, "Not just that, it knew my name. It kept yelling, "Mrs. Armstrong, Mrs. Armstrong, and that's when I hit the stairs and fell." Sam looks surprised. "You fell? The ghost didn't push you?" Candace doesn't know. She thinks maybe it did. Sam asks if she felt like it meant to hurt her. She says, "It was a ghost. I'm lucky to be alive! Anyway, I was at the bottom of the stairs, and that's when it got weird. It helped me up." Sam does a double take. "Say again?" Candace laughs. "Yeah. It helped me up. And it kept saying over and over, 'Please, don't tell my mom'." Sam tries to keep his poker face. "Yeah, that's weird."
Metallicar waits alone outside the health club. Sam walks by her with nary a glace, and toward Dean who is sitting on the club steps, reading the local paper. Don't feel bad, Baby. You're like the luckiest girl in this whole episode. Really. The headline announces, "Local Man Wins $168M Lottery." Beneath it, there's a picture of the man and a caption that reads: "LUCKY: George Neuman, a resident of Concrete, won yesterday's lottery." Dean didn't get any EMF readings in the shower or anywhere else, and says, "This house is clean." Sam's not surprised. He says he's pretty sure that "Crazy pushed Mrs. Armstrong down the stairs." Dean's disappointed. Sam guesses that's because he wanted to save some naked women. Dean says, "Damn right I wanted to save some naked women." How do they come up with this enthralling dialogue?
