SHAPESHIFTER TRAILER PARK
Joe Lee: "Just kidding, I didn't leave your gross mom!"
Tommy: "Stop choking me! If only I had magic powers. If only you owned pants!"
Joe Lee: "You will now be our main source of revenue because I broke your mom!"
Tommy: "Sure, after I wake up from this loss of consciousness."
Gross Mom: "Are you sure we're doing the right thing? Choking our kid out and then making him fight animals? Oh, and did I tell you he learned how to read?"
Tommy: "See now how the choke becomes the choker! Who's the bitch now?"
Fighting, fighting, trailer park family domestic situation of a sort I was not raised to accommodate or acknowledge.
Both Parents: Suddenly dead.
Tommy: Contrite about killing his mom. Does not know that he is now a Skinwalker.

Marnie: "Okay, my bad. I got possessed again by that ghost witch lady."

And the worse we get, the more we cling.]"
Team Lala: (Bounces, leaving dumb Marnie to clean up all her witch stuff.)

Arlene: "Our devil baby wrote on the wall!"
Terry: "That seems unlikely, although Occam's Razor does support your theory."
Arlene: "I wish I hadn't tried for that magical abortion, or else Jesus might help us out."
Terry: "Maybe we should get a priest, actually. Or some Holy Roller equivalent."
Generally I think complaining about the number of characters and/or plotlines on this show is tantamount to admitting you're too stupid to keep up, or too lazy to resist the meme and form your own opinion -- or, worst of all, just hypothetically bitching like people who scream SPOILERS even though they've already been spoiled and everybody has been spoiled and it wasn't even a spoiler and they're just doing it because they want to feel like hero cops of the internet -- but Arlene makes me wonder. And then shit like this happens, and it all seems okay again:
