Episode Quotes
Host: Our next painting tells the story of a young man who's major in school is philosophy, but whose extracurricular labors take him into the area of black magic. And for this, you don't get a degree, but the commencement ceremony is a gas. See for yourself as we offer you There Aren't Anymore MacBanes.

Elie: Andy, what is it? What did Jedediah create, what did you summon back?
Andrew MacBane: All the jealousy the Earth has ever known since the creation of man. Formed into the epitome of everything that is evil in that jealousy.
