In Canton, Ohio, Cal Hopkins invites his friend Jim Grossman over and takes him to the garage. They're both James Dean fans, and Cal has finally managed to purchase "Little Bastard," the cursed car that Dean was driving when he died. Cal prepares to start it up and Jim goes to get a camcorder to record the historical event. Cal gets in the car and the radio starts on its own. The temperature drops in the garage. Outside, Jim hears the car starts up and goes to investigate. He discovers that Cal is dead in a head-on collision... even though the car is standing stock still...

Episode Quotes
Dean: Dude, he's short.
Sam: Hey, Gandhi was a great man.
Dean: For a Smurf.

Dean: Is that Gandhi?
Sam: Yeah!
Dean: Dude, he's squirelly.

Dean: Let me get this straight. Your, uh, ultimate hero was not only a short man in diapers, but he was a fruitarian.
Sam: That's not the point.
Dean: That is good. Even for you, that is good.

Dean: Not a word.
Sam: Dude, you just got whaled on by Paris Hilton.

Cultural References
Sam: So, this is like Christine?

Stephen King wrote the novel Christine in 1983, and John Carpenter adapted it into a movie later that year. The movie's title character is a killer car possessed by the spirit of its psychopathic owner, who takes over a teenager who buys the car and uses the car to commit murder.
