    • QUOTES (5)

      • Josh: (seeing the boat Ryder has acquired for the investigation) Oh, my sweet God! What is this, Ryder?
        Ryder: It's a waka.
        Josh: What is a waka?!
        Ryder: It's a traditional Maori boat.
        Josh: I thought a 'waka' was what Fozzie Bear said on The Muppets.
        Ryder: No no, that's a 'Waka waka.' This is just one waka.

      • Josh: (doing an EVP session) Is there anybody here?
        Male EVP: I am...

      • Allison: (doing a 30 minute isolation session in the La Noria cemetery) I got to be honest, if I was told I'd be doing this on this trip, I might have reconsidered saying yes so quickly.

      • Ryder: A swarm of bugs just came out of the trees and is literally attacking us in the boat. Like, I'm not talking a million, not talking two million, I'm talking ten million bugs are... eating our faces! I need a container of gasoline and a match. I'm lighting this entire boat on fire right now!

      • Josh: (as they sample the local delicacies) Are you going to be sick right here?
        Allison: Uh huh!
        Josh: Don't puke on camera, rule number seven.
        Allison: I never got the rulebook!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The investigation of the haunted mining towns came about by accident. Josh and his team were driving through Chile to get to another investigation when they stopped at one of the towns for a bit of a pit stop. Looking around, they realized that there was great potential for an episode in the place, and decided to add it to the schedule. They even filmed some footage of the place just to get a head start on their new prospective episode.
