Meanwhile, Kathy Allen is in her home and her answering machine is playing its outgoing message over and over again while she looks out the window mournfully, just like the time she did when John-John went on a date with Brooke Shields. The camera pulls back to reveal the haunted coffee maker (or maybe just the coffee maker with an automatic timer that no one in the household has bothered to set properly). The coffee pot is missing from its base and hot water is streaming out of it.
Headquarters D'Others. Marion is explaining to the group about the answering machine phenomenon. "Well, it was like a voice in my head, but it wasn't," she says. "And it was my voice but I heard Kathy and Greg." Blind Albert asks her if she knows a Kathy and Greg. Marion replies that she doesn't. Miles concludes that Kathy and Greg are trying to send Marion a message. "Can you help me out here?" asks Ole Man Elmer. "Well no, that's why I'm asking you," giggles Marion with just a little bit of scorn in her voice. Dr. Mark and Satori explain smugly that Elmer is calling on his spirit guides, not Marion. "We see seven people in the room," says Miles. "He sees thirty." "Should I get more chairs?" asks Gilligan, I mean Warren. Miles says no. The group concludes that Marion is receiving messages from a new spirit guide who is just beginning to learn to communicate. The spirit has chosen Marion, because she's new at this too. "New spirits use what you might call 'easy access energy,'" says Elmer. No comment. They are using Marion's answering machine because it's a medium that Marion already uses in her daily life. The television turns on by itself and starts switching channels randomly. Elmer laughs and slaps his knee over the antics of those pesky spirit guides. The channels come to rest on a hockey game. Dr. Mark starts to have an empathy attack. Satori comforts him by massaging his shoulders. "There's so much grief," he says. Oh yeah, that must be Kathy and Greg getting through, because Lord knows that in the last few days nothing tragic has happened to anyone else the world over except for Kathy and Greg. "I know," says Warren. "It's tough to be a Boston fan." Heh.
