  • Quotes (14)

    • Molly: Isn’t this argument a little archaic? Men can ask directions these days. David: Oh, no we can’t. It’s against our genetic code. Look, I know exactly where we are. Molly: We’re nowhere. David: Highway 99, all right? It cuts right through….. (trails off as they pass a sign marking Highway 41)

    • Dean: Did he look like he... lost a fight with a lawnmower? Molly: How did you know that? Dean: Lucky guess.

    • Molly: Right before, we were having the dumbest fight. It's the only time we really argue, when we're stuck in the car. Sam: Yeah, I know how that goes. (Dean glares at him)

    • Sam: It wasn't a coincidence that we found you, all right? Molly: What are you talking about? Dean: We weren't just cruisin' for chicks when we ran into you, sister, we were already out here. Hunting. Molly: Hunting for what? Dean: (pauses) Ghosts. Sam: Don't sugarcoat it for her.

    • Dean: Y'know, just once I'd like to round the corner and see a nice house.

    Trivia (5)

    • Trivia: The conversation Sam has with Molly at the end is very similar to the conversation the Reaper and Dean had toward the end of "In My Time of Dying."

    • The brothers don't salt and burn Marion Greeley's bones. There's no indication she's a ghost, but given she killed herself because she lost her husband, she certainly seems obsessed. There's no reason not to dispose of her remains in the proper manner, and yet they don't.

    • When Greeley is scratching Molly's stomach, there is a lot of skin showing, but when we get a full view of her hanging, there is only a sliver of skin showing.

    • When confronting Greeley's spirit, Dean yells at Sam to hurry up. Given Sam is secretly salting and burning Greeley's bones, Dean yelling at him isn't the best idea. Fortunately, Greeley doesn't bother to investigate what Sam is doing.

    • There is no way Sam would've been able to find the grave, unbury the body, salt and burn the bones in the same while Dean just shot the ghost and was smashed to the wall, with the ghost trying to kill him. He didn't have the time, it all happened too quickly.
