- What's up, Claire?

- Hey.

So this is it, huh?

Just you and me?

- End of days.

- Yeah.

Have you talked to Ron?


Ron is in Barbados snorkeling to the

ever-elusive double back sablefish.

And he left exposed instructions

not to be disturbed.

You know, well, If you own this place,

you'd be at the Barbados too.

Sure I would, especially if I had two suckers

back at home waiting and cover for me.

- Did you get your camera fixed?

- No. It's totaled.

I have to send it back

to Pentax's suck-ass.

I have my microphone, though. So we can

make do with the EVP investigations.


Oh, hey.

That reminds me.

I have to show you something.

So, I was trolling around on some

of the paranormal forums last night.

And I came across something pretty interesting.

You definitely gonna wanna see this.

What is it?

Hold on.

Just watch.

Look closely.

I missed it the first time.

It can blow your mind.

Really heavy.

You bastard!

So good.

Oh my God, every time.

Oh, my God.

What room did you take?

- 216.

- Of course.

Hey, I've been here since last night.

This is just the way it goes.

225 is taken.

All the rest is pretty much wide open.

Second floor only, I don't remember.

The third floor is already done.

Only one guest? Brutal.

It don't take a genius to get why

this place is going out of business.

Okay, I'll take room 214.

I figure we'll take 7 to 7 shifts,

something like that?

You're right. Sounds good.

I'll bring it back down.

Okay, If I could just

get you to sign that?

This is your room key.

Number 224.

You wanna head up to the top of

the stairs, and take a right,

and then another quick right,

so like a doubly,

and then you go about halfway down of the

hallway, and It's on your right-hand side.

You can't miss it.

Thank you.

Do you know who that is?

- It's Leanne Rease-Jones.

- Okay.

She was the mom on

"Like Mother, Like Son"?

- Dude, she is super famous.

- Okay, whatever.

Oh, man. Leanne Rease-Jones.

I wonder what she's doing here.

She's guest speaking at some

convention in Pots Town.

- How do you know that?

- She told me.

- What? What else did she tell you?

- Nothing. Why are you acting so weird?

- I'm not.

- Well, here is her autograph. Just relax.


Why are you being so grouchy today?

I'm not. I'm just stressed.

This site is killing me.

Let me see it.

Looks good.

I hate web design.

It looks really good.

I like the little ghost.

It's not the most professional,

but it's not bad.

There's a lot of money in this right now,

I just... I have to act fast.

Looks really good.

I like it.

And, you know, once you get some proof on that,

It won't matter what it looks like.

Hey, so I was thinking...

It seems like whenever something really creepy

happens, nobody else is around, right?

Like every time you've seen stuff,

you were alone. So...

I was just thinking that since

the hotel is practically empty,

we might have a good chance

of making some real contact.

- Does that make sense?

- Yeah.

Yeah. I think this weekend's going to be it.

We're going to get something good, I can feel it.

- What?

- What?

- What?

- What?

Front desk.

Yes, Mrs. Rease-Jones.

Oh, sure, I'll send them

right up for you.

You're welcome.

- I forgot to stack the towels.

- I'll get them.

Good, save me the hassle

of that gale on 225,

she's driving me nuts and

I don't want her to see me.

Uh, that lady with the kid?

I know, what's her deal?

She was gonna give me total

aggro vibes upstairs.

She had a huge fight

with her husband

and she's staying here till Sunday

with her son as payback.
