Supernatural Episode Clap If You Believe: Ten Favorite Things

The Clap If You Believe episode is one of my very favorite shows, and I've watched it more times than I can count. Here are the ten greatest things about it...

1. Opening Credits: They do an X-Files type of opening here, and it is pretty awesome.

2. Sam goes off on crazy-fairy lady: Because Sam does not have a soul here, he doesn't have empathy or patience with other people. Dean has to drag Sam away while apologizing to the lady. This is one of my favorite parts because Sam really lets her have it. He says something like: UFO's aren't crazy enough for you? Dump glitter in that glue you're sniffing if you want, but we don't want to step in it. LOL

3. While Dean is being abducted, Sam orders another beer: I can't help but laugh every time I watch this scene. Dean starts screaming, "Close encounter! Close encounter!" Sam orders another beer and checks the waitress out from behind.

4. Sam's talk with the hippie chick: After he finishes his beer, Sam finally goes to look for Dean. He has a talk with one of the UFO people, asking questions about how to catch up with the aliens that took his brother. When the hippie chick asks about his brother, Sam tells her not to worry. He's had time to adjust. She's like, "Did it happen when you were kids?" "No," Sam says. "Just about half an hour ago." She doesn't know what to think about this, but she still wants to hook up with him. So funny.

5. Dean comes home: When she shows up at the motel room, he catches Sam with the hippie chick. Dean thinks he's only been gone for a short time, but Sam points out it's a UFO time slip, and he's been missing for hours. I love the hippie chick. She is so cute and funny. She tells Sam not to worry, that she totally gets he needs time with his family. Then she asks Dean what the aliens were like. He's upset. "They were grabby, incandescent douche bags." She's like, "Too soon." Hahaha

6. Safe room talk: Sam is trying to act empathetic and pats Dean's knee. "It's okay. Safe room." Dean looked thoroughly creeped out.

7. Dean microwaves a fairy: If you haven't seen this episode, watching it for this scene alone is worth it. OMG! A tiny little Tinkerbell like fairy attacks Dean. She hits him. He finally traps her in the microwave and nukes her. Then, when Sam returns, he tries to show Sam the mess, but Sam can't see it. Only someone who has visited the fairy realm can see it.

8. Fight the fairies: Dean gets arrested and yells, "Fight those fairies, Sam!:

9. Dean has to deal with another him: Okay, this is funny because Sam is acting like Dean. He's checking out the waitress, drinking, and doesn't seem too worried about the things happening around him. Dean let's him have it for giving the waitress the silent how-do-you-do. He is so irate, it's hilarious. Dean, don't be a hypocrite. Sam is just acting like you.

10. Sam finally dumps the salt: They are told how to distract a fairy, by throwing salt on the ground, but it takes Sam forever to remember that. I kept saying, "Throw the salt, you idiot!"

Anyway, so this is one of my all-time favorite Supernatural episodes that I will never get tired of watching. If you haven't seen it, you are missing out.

Dragons series


For the Memory of Dragons
amazon ibooks Barnes and Noble
What do you do when a dragon crash-lands in your backyard?
That's the question Terra's faced with when one of these creatures plows down into her cornfield. Should she help out the hunk of a man the dragon turns into, or turn him over to the trigger-happy 'authorities' that have come looking for him? The deciding factor—he has no memory. Giving him up just doesn't seem right… at least until she knows the truth of who he is.
Alex has forgotten a thing or two—his name being one of them—but he knows there is something important that he needs to remember, if he could just get his battered brain to work properly. A little rest might help, but there's no time for that when the bullets start flying.
Now he has to follow the few clues he has to discover who he is, and why people are trying to kill him. But that's the easy part. The hard part will be keeping his hands off the lovely lady helping him.
For the Memory of Dragons is the exciting sequel to On the Wings of Accidental Dragons by Julie Wetzel.

I have finally picked a title for my current work-in-progress.

Ruler of the Dead
And this is my cover without the title.

Here is a short excerpt:

Kevin took a visual inventory of Riley Bishop and wondered if he too would develop a crush on her someday. Her hair was the color of a Hershey’s candy bar: deep, dark brown, and her eyes reminded him of the blue on Superman’s costume. Boys flirted with her all the time when she came into the diner, but she talked to them with what his mom called a ‘smart mouth,’ indicating she wasn’t interested. They still kept trying.
Riley glared at him. “Why are you staring at me?”
“I was trying to decide if you’re pretty.”
She kicked him under the table.
“Ow!” He rubbed his sore leg. “What did you do that for?”
“Because you’re a moron. You don’t tell a girl that you aren’t sure if she’s pretty. No one wants to hear that. It should be obvious that someone is pretty.”
“All the guys like you, so I was trying to figure out if I’m going to lose my mind and like you someday. I mean, like you as more than a friend. You didn’t have to kick me.”
Riley’s eyes narrowed. “And? Am I pretty?”
He didn’t want to lie, but he didn’t want to get kicked again either. His father told him there was always a wise way to answer every question. A person just needed to give it some thought. So he did. He thought long and hard about the best way to respond.
He shrugged. “Guess the only girl I think is really pretty is my mom.”
Riley’s mouth spread into a wide smile. “Good answer. See? You can use your brain when you want. Now focus it on your math.”
He gave her a you-think-you’re-funny-but-you’re-really-not look.

Math sucked!

Supernatural Counts

So, I've been doing a Supernatural marathon, watching from Seasons 1 through 10, and I've noticed some odd things. Now, I could be wrong. If I am and you know for a fact that I'm wrong, feel free to leave it in the comment along with proof like which episode the truth is on. Sometimes I am trying to do other stuff as the show is playing, and I miss important stuff. 

Jacks of All Trades:

For some reason, I thought Sam and Dean were using FBI badges from the start of season one. No. Unless I just totally missed it, the brothers do not play FBI agents until Season 2, the bank robbery episode with the laser eyes. Every time they flashed a badge before this moment, I was careful to pay attention. They were park rangers, US marshalls, writers for magazine/newspapers, Homeland Security, health inspectors, art dealers, doctor with the CDC, priests, and insurance claims workers.

If you think I'm wrong, go back and watch all of Season 1. They flash badges several times, but they are never FBI. The closest they come is when Sam has to use a bikini inspector badge that Dean had. 

Sam's hair is reasonable in Season 2 and the jargon he uses makes him an effective FBI agent. In fact, at one point Dean says, "It's scary how good of a Fed you are."

Answers to Fun Questions:

Have you ever wondered how many times Sam has been tied up, choked, or knocked out? Do you want to know how many people they've saved and how many things they've hunted?

You'll have to join us on Halloween at the Supernatural Party Event on Facebook. You can join it HERE.

Here are the stats so far/I'm on Season 3 right now.

People saved: 174 (this is because they saved a plane of people with over a hundred on board)

Things hunted: 60 (with things hunted I am only counting things they've actually killed, if it got away, I do not count it)

Dean saved Sam: 19
Sam saved Dean: 15

These two categories were interesting because Dean saved Sam again and again during the first half dozen episodes. Then, finally, Sam started saving Dean on occasion.
