7.18 Party On, Garth

Written by: Adam Glass

Directed by: Philip Sgriccia

Air Date: 30 March 2012


NOW

EXT. – WOODS – NIGHT


A teenage boy, CHRIS, is telling a story to people around a campfire.


CHRIS
Long ago, in these very woods, lived an old woman by the name… of Jenny Greentree.


CHRIS shines the flashlight onto his face from under his chin.


GIRL
Whooo!


The camera pans out and we see there are four people around the campfire – CHRIS, the GIRL sitting next to him, and another teenage boy, RAY, and girl, CHLOE, sitting close together on the other side of the fire.


CHRIS
Forced out after her family was killed in a fire. She lost everything. Some say, even her humanity.


RAY
That is so sad.


CHLOE
Shut up!


CHRIS
It’s a true story, Ray. Look.


CHRIS shines a flashlight onto the letters “JG” carved into a nearby tree.


CHRIS
She carved her initials into that tree… right before she died.


GIRL
Those are not her initials.


We see the scene from a distance, as if through someone else’s eyes.


CHLOE
So, how’d she die?


CHRIS
One night, a blizzard hit. She’s cold, she’s hungry, nowhere to go, no one to turn to. Jenny Greentree froze to death… right beneath that tree. And her evil spirit has haunted these woods ever since.


CHRIS shines the flashlight onto his face from under his chin and grins creepily. RAY gooses CHLOE and she jumps. RAY laughs.


CHLOE
Don’t do that!


Suddenly a bottle smashes against the tree. The GIRL screams and everybody jumps. Another teenage boy, TREVOR, staggers up, laughing drunkenly. CHRIS rolls his eyes.


TREVOR
You guys should have seen your faces!


CHRIS
What the hell, Trevor? That’s not funny, man!


TREVOR
To you!


RAY
[Stands up] Yo. You drive here, man?


TREVOR
Oh, please. Look, why – why don’t you take – take my phone, okay? Call Dad and bust me, why don’t you?


RAY
No, I’m just saying, you’re wasted. You can’t just drive…


TREVOR
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I heard ya. [Laughs uneasily] What was that?


RAY
What? No. Trevor, let’s just sit down, okay, we’ll –


TREVOR
Shhh. You – you don’t hear that?


We see the scene from a distance again.


RAY
Trevor, there’s nothing there, all right? Let’s just sit down, and we’ll…


TREVOR
What the…? You gotta run. You gotta run!


TREVOR runs away.


RAY
Trevor!


CHLOE
I’m sorry, but what is your brother on?


There is a scream in the distance.


RAY
Trevor!


RAY runs after TREVOR.


CUT TO: RAY walking in the woods, looking for TREVOR.


RAY
Trevor! Trev, come on! Stop being a tool!


RAY sees TREVOR sitting against a tree.


RAY
Come on, Trevor, let’s head back. Dude.


TREVOR is dead. His face is cut and bleeding and there is a large hole in his abdomen.


SUPERNATURAL (Title Card)


ACT ONE

EXT. – STREET – DAY


Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" plays as a vehicle pulls up outside "Burger Heaven." GARTH gets out, wearing sunglasses, and walks slowly to the restaurant.


♪ Poison ♪

♪ Yeah, Spiderman and Freeze in full effect ♪

♪ Poison ♪

♪ Uh-huh, you ready, Ron? ♪

♪ Poison ♪

♪ I'm ready – you ready, Biv? ♪

♪ I'm ready, slick, are you? ♪

♪ Oh, yeah, break it down ♪


CHLOE and the teenage GIRL are talking outside the restaurant.


GARTH
Ladies.


GIRL
What do you want, Top Gun? [Laughs]


GARTH
For starters, I'd like a little respect. [Holds up a badge]


CHLOE
Sorry, Officer. We didn't realize.


GARTH
All's forgiven. Take a seat. Tell me about Trevor McAnn. Other night up at Widow's Peak.


The girls speak simultaneously:


GIRL
Okay. Well, at first it was just like he was super-drunk.


CHLOE
All right. It was weird 'cause he was super-drunk.


GARTH
Whoa. You. [Points to the GIRL] Go.


GIRL
It was Jenny Greentree.


CHLOE
Shut up! Okay? She's just a dumb legend.


GARTH
Hold up. Who?


GIRL
Jenny Greentree. My dad says she really died in the woods. And she's buried in the town cemetery.


EXT. – CEMETERY – NIGHT


GARTH is digging in front of Jennifer Greentree’s headstone.


GARTH
All right, Jenny G. [He pours salt into the grave] Your ganking days are over. [He lights a match and tosses it into the grave] You've been Garthed.


GARTH walks back to his vehicle in slow motion as "Poison" plays.


♪ I was at the bar, shake, breakin', and taking 'em all ♪

♪ And that night, I played the wall ♪

♪ Checkin' out the fellas, the highs, the lows ♪

♪ Keepin' one eye open, still clockin' the hoes ♪

♪ There was one particular girl that stood out from the rest ♪

♪ Poison as can be, the high power chest ♪

♪ Michael Bivins here, and I'm runnin' the show ♪

♪ Bell, Biv, DeVoe ♪

♪ ha ha ha ♪


CAR – NIGHT


RAY is sitting in a car with a bottle of alcohol beside him. He pushes a button on his cell phone.


CHLOE (voice message)
Ray, where are you? [RAY drinks from another bottle] You should be with your family right now. Don't do anything stupid. Please.


RAY hits a button to stop the message and takes another drink. He gets out of the car, carrying a rifle.


EXT. – WOODS – NIGHT


RAY walks through the woods with his rifle. He sees a long-haired woman in a white dress through the trees and runs towards her. He pauses and looks around, then screams as he is dragged upwards. His legs shake and there is the sound of flesh tearing. Blood runs down his legs and onto his boots and the ground. RAY goes still.


EXT. – NIGHT


GARTH is talking on his phone in front of a food van that reads “Guanaco Salvadoran Cuisine.”


GARTH (on phone)
Yeah, I clocked out. Put it to bed. Problem solved. And I'm headed your way, so, uh... fire up that hot tub.

[Chuckles] No, I heart you more.


GARTH gets into his vehicle and opens a take-out container.


VOICE ON POLICE RADIO
Abandoned vehicle out by Widow's Peak. Uh, we got another body up here. Guy's torn to shreds.


GARTH
What?! No way. How is that possible? I Garthed her!


CAR – NIGHT


DEAN is talking on the phone in the passenger seat. SAM is driving.


DEAN (on phone)
All right, well, call us if he wakes up or, you know, anything.

Yeah, fine.

Thanks for your help, Meg.


DEAN hangs up.


DEAN
What a bitch.


SAM
So, Cas is the same, then?


DEAN
Yeah, down to the drool.


SAM
Huh.


DEAN
By the way, how is your custard?


SAM
It's all right. It's getting better. Just wish it wasn't like the damn tape from "The Ring." I mean, I feel like I'm okay 'cause I passed on the crazy.


DEAN
No, you didn't. You heard what Cas said.


DEAN’s phone rings.


SAM
Let's – let's not. You know what?


DEAN answers the phone. The scene alternates between DEAN and SAM in the car and GARTH sitting in his vehicle.


DEAN (on phone)
Hello.


GARTH (on phone)
Hey, Dean. It's Garth.


DEAN (on phone)
Wait. W-who is this?


GARTH (on phone)
Garth. Garth Fitzgerald the Fourth. We worked together on that demon thing? You owe me one?


DEAN (on phone)
Oh, yeah. Yeah, how you doing, Garth?


GARTH (on phone)
I'm ready to cash in that chip, Bra. There's something brewing in Junction City, Kansas.


INT. – MORGUE – DAY


A CORONER leads DEAN and SAM in their FBI suits into the room.


CORONER
Well, this is it. Gentlemen... this is Corporal Brown.


GARTH, wearing an Army uniform, is standing next to the body.


GARTH
Corporal James Brown. I'm shipping off to the AF mañana. I'm here to pay respects to my cousin as I will not be able to attend the funeral.


CORONER
That must be terrible for your family. Losing two brothers so fast.


DEAN looks at SAM and SAM looks at GARTH, to whom this is obviously news.


GARTH
Yeah. Yeah. My aunt – she's, uh... she's real broken up about it.


SAM
Hey, Doc, can we see both files, please?


CORONER
Mm-hmm.


The CORONER’s phone rings.


CORONER
Ah. [Hands SAM a file] My wife. I'll, uh, be in my office.


DEAN
Great.


The CORONER leaves the room.


SAM
You didn't say they were brothers.


GARTH
Dude, I just found out about the other corpse, and... started moving quick. I'm sucking up info as I go.


DEAN
What, are you allergic to a suit?


GARTH
No. I just... look good in a uniform.


SAM reads the file.


SAM
Yep. Same cause of death.


SAM walks over to a computer.


GARTH
Right, uh, gutted at night in the woods, where legend says that the ghost of Jenny Greentree roams.


DEAN takes out an EMF meter.


GARTH
Oh, uh, I already scanned for EM... [the EMF reader makes noise] F. Oh. Um... I guess mine must be broken again.


DEAN
All right. I'm reading your mail. Uh, ghost of Jenny... whatever?


GARTH
Greentree. That's just it. I torched her bones.


DEAN
Yeah, well, maybe she's got something still laying around.


SAM is searching online for “Junction City, Ray, Trevor McAnn.” He opens a web page for the Midwestern Brewing Company, which lists Thighslapper Ale, Headspinner Amber Ale and Hardhead Imperial Stout.


GARTH
Highly doubtful. Chick was homeless.


DEAN looks under the sheet at the body and makes a face.


GARTH
Plus, is it me, or is this less evil spirit, more monster chow?


DEAN
A werewolf?


GARTH
Except, uh, the witness said that whatever was chasing victim numero uno was invisible.


DEAN
Uh… [chuckles] So, invisible ghost werewolf?


GARTH
Why'd you think I called for backup?


SAM
Hey. Either of you ever heard of Thighslapper Ale?


GARTH
Is that a stripper or a beverage?


DEAN
Beverage for douchebags.


SAM
Uh, number one microbrew in the Pacific Northwest.


GARTH
But we're in Kansas.


DEAN
Yeah, I rest my case. What's your point?


SAM
The owner is the dad to the dead brothers.


GARTH
Right. I'll can the uniform, go Fed. See you at the brewery in 40.


GARTH leaves.


DEAN
He grows on you.


INT. – MIDWESTERN BREWING COMPANY – DAY


A WOMAN walks through the brewery and opens the door for SAM, DEAN and GARTH, who are all wearing suits.


WOMAN
Agents. I'm Marie. I'm a manager.


DEAN
Thanks for coming in on a Sunday.


MARIE
We want to help. Anything we can do.


MARIE leads them inside.


DEAN
Oh. So all this is your dad's, huh?


MARIE
And his friend – Randy Baxter. They own the place together now.


SAM
Uh..."now"?


MARIE
Well, since Dale died.


MAN (V-O)
Hold on, hold on, hold on. You think I just come in late…


The MAN is standing in an office, lecturing a TEENAGE BOY. Another man is leaning against the wall.


MAN
…whenever I want?


TEENAGE BOY
I'm sorry, sir. It won't happen again.


MARIE
The, uh, "charming" Randy Baxter.


DEAN
Mm.


RANDY BAXTER
Tell you what – congratulations. You're headed for the graveyard shift. Be one second late, and you're fired.


TEENAGE BOY
Yes, sir.


MARIE
He's actually a really nice guy. It's just not easy being the axman.


DEAN
So true.


GARTH
My comrades got you covered, so if you'll excuse me.


SAM
Uh, yeah, I'll go with you.


SAM and GARTH walk into the office.


SAM
Mr. McAnn? Uh, we'll be brief. I promise.


GARTH
Mr. McAnn, is there any reason to believe your sons may have had enemies?


MR. MCANN
We were told they were animal attacks.


SAM
We just need to explore every possibility.


MR. MCANN
They got lots of friends. No.


SAM
Well, do they work here with you? Like Marie does. Uh, could someone have been jealous?


MR. MCANN
N-no. Marie's the only one. Oh – no. Th– there's no... Uh...


RANDY BAXTER
Jim. It's okay. It's okay. [to SAM and GARTH] Let him get some rest. I'll answer your questions.


SAM
Of course.


JIM MCANN leaves the room.


CUT TO: MARIE and DEAN walking through the brewery.


MARIE
He blamed himself when Dale died, and now this.


DEAN
Why did he blame himself?


MARIE
Well, Dale was sensitive. But what do you do – watch them 24/7? You can't blame Dale's friends.


DEAN
But your dad still feels bad.


MARIE
And it doesn't help Dale's wife is suing us.


DEAN
Really? Why?


MARIE
She's angry and grieving, and this is America?


CUT TO: SAM and GARTH talking to RANDY BAXTER in the office.


RANDY BAXTER
I knew Ray and Trevor. Hell, I'm godfather to all four of Jim's kids. Ray and Trevor loved their fun, but they'd never do anything crazy.


GARTH
No rugrats of your own?


RANDY BAXTER
Just Jim's. They'd borrow my car, raid my fridge.


SAM
Now, the two of you started this company with a third partner. Right?


RANDY BAXTER
Yeah. Dale. [The camera pans in on two framed photographs of the three men] He passed away a few months ago.


GARTH
Passed away in the woods or...?


RANDY BAXTER
He took his own life.


GARTH
Oh. Sorry.


RANDY BAXTER
Well, he had problems for a long time. Look, this is just a nightmare.


SAM notices a wooden box with Japanese characters written on it next to a tray of drinks behind the desk.


RANDY BAXTER
First Dale, now this. This was gonna be our big year. We're selling Thighslapper to one of the largest distributors in the US. It's been in the works for months. News is gonna hit public pretty soon.


GARTH
Well, that's the brass ring, huh?


RANDY BAXTER
Given other circumstances, yeah, we'd be celebrating right about now.


INT. – HOUSE – DAY


We see a close-up of a family photo of JIM MCANN, RAY, TREVOR, MARIE, another woman, LILLIAN, and a YOUNG GIRL on LILLIAN’s lap.


LILLIAN is carrying a bottle of vodka in the kitchen. She pours some into one of two glasses of orange juice and takes a sip, then carries both glasses to the next room, where the YOUNG GIRL is drawing at a table.


LILLIAN
That looks great, sweetie.


LILLIAN sets both glasses on the table. There is a knock at the door.


JIM MCANN
Hello?


WOMAN
There's Grandpa. Hi.


LILLIAN walks to the entryway and hugs JIM MCANN. The YOUNG GIRL picks up one of the glasses of orange juice and takes a drink. From her face it is clear that she picked up the glass with the vodka.


YOUNG GIRL
Oops.


LILLIAN
I'll get some snacks. You should eat.


JIM MCANN
Yeah.


LILLIAN
Sit, Dad.


The YOUNG GIRL giggles.


JIM MCANN
Hey, what you drawing?


YOUNG GIRL
My world.


The YOUNG GIRL giggles as she draws. She looks up and sees something move through the air and then a long-haired woman in a white dress walk into the entryway. The YOUNG GIRL gets up and looks around the entryway, then walks into the kitchen. LILLIAN is making sandwiches. The YOUNG GIRL can see the long-haired woman in the white dress standing behind LILLIAN. JIM MCANN walks into the kitchen.


JIM MCANN
What is it, sweetie?


The YOUNG GIRL points. JIM MCANN can see only LILLIAN behind the counter.


WOMAN
What is it?


The YOUNG GIRL continues to point. LILLIAN turns and gasps as she sees the woman in the white dress. The YOUNG GIRL screams as LILLIAN turns to try to get away. The woman in the white dress puts her fist through LILLIAN’s back. JIM MCANN grabs the YOUNG GIRL and turns her face away.


JIM MCANN
Lillian!


JIM MCANN can only see LILLIAN, with her back arched and her arms outstretched. The camera angle changes to show LILLIAN from the front with the woman in the white dress behind her. LILLIAN looks down to see a hand protruding through her body beneath her shirt. She falls to the floor.
