The Hidden One says that he let Pandora become too familiar with him, and figures that she is deviant because she is a human. He telekinetically pulls her from the pool where she's submerged, and Pandora insists that she didn't betray him. The Hidden One doesn't believe her, but Pandora insists that she enlisted Abbie to help her. He tells her that he may continue the punishment later, but he's weary for now and goes back to watching the Golden Hourglass...

Episode Quotes
Ichabod: Long endeth the reign of the house of burger. Long live the new fast food king, a poultry from in Kentucky and Colonel... oh.

Docent: And we've actually been getting more visitors these days. Mostly Hamilton fans hoping to recognize stuff from the musical. Have you seen it?
Ichabod: A musical about Alexander Hamilton? Unbelievable. The man had a voice like a stuck goat. Seriously, that's why he wrote so many pamphlets. No one could bear to listen to him speak.

Joe: Okay, I know I'm not that experienced with all this, but I don't think the road to the Underworld runs through a candy shop.

The Hidden One: You love these humans so much. You wear their clothes. You feel their petty, worthless emotions. If you want to live among them, then you shall die among them.

Cultural References
Docent: Mostly Hamilton fans hoping to recognize stuff from the musical.

Hamilton is a 2015 musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton.

Joe: Want to play Name That Tune?

Name That Tune was a 50s game show where contestants had to identify a song for money, and the song was played note by time under some kind of time pressure.
