When Shelby worries about passing, Becca points out that their teacher, Mr. Drake, has the hots for her. Shelby doesn’t believe it and notes that it’s their last Halloween before Becca goes to Taiwan. She notes that Halloween is the most important date in the Wiccan calendar, and Becca suggests that they have a séance in honor of the holiday. Shelby warns that it could be dangerous and Becca admits it’s a lame idea. They discuss the idea of spirits and Becca asks if Shelby believes that her mother is looking down on her.

Episode Quotes
Becca: I don't know why you're stressing. It's obvious Mr. Drake has the hots for you. You couldn't flunk his class if you wanted to.
Shelby: Shut up.
Becca: Don't pretend you haven't noticed how he looks at you. He wants to write a paper on your girl parts.
Shelby: That is like beyond revolting.
Becca: Oh, yeah, then why are you blushing?
Shelby: Because I've eaten my weight in fun-size candy.

Becca: So, what do we do now?
Shelby: Uh, so now each of us puts two fingers on the pointer and starts asking questions.
Becca: What kind of questions?
Shelby: Like, "Are there any spirits here with us now? If so, we beseech thee to send us a sign."
Becca: "Beseech thee"?
Shelby: If you can do better, be my guest.
Becca: Look, spirits, it's getting late and I have to pee. So if you're going to say something, you'd better say it.

Becca: What about your dad? Why didn't you tell him?
Shelby: What do you want me to say? "A talking pizza box told us that Emily D'Angelo was murdered and now whoever it was that killed her is threatening me."
