A taxidermist, Max Alexander, is working in his shop in Enid, OK and listening to the radio. His dog Colonel whines and the man hears something moving around in the shop. Max grabs a shotgun and goes to investigate, but finds nothing. When he goes back to his workbench, Colonel barks at him and the man turns to see a man in a cowboy hat standing behind him. The intruder knocks the gun out of Max's hand and extends a long snakelike tongue, and then grabs the owner by the throat. After holding him up for a moment, the intruder wraps his arms around Max and crushes him to death...

Dean: What's the difference?

Dean: Hey. You know who wears sunglasses inside? Blind people. And douchebags.

Colonel: Where're we headed?
Dean: Back to the shelter.
Colonel: To sniff out more clues? Maybe dig up something we missed?
Dean: All right, one more doggy pun and I'm gonna have your nuts clip.
Colonel: I hate to break it to you, hoss, but my sack's emptier than Santa's after Christmas.
