Supernatural (2005–…): Season 4, Episode 6 - Yellow Fever - full transcript

Sam and Dean discover a Colorado small town's darkest secret as a wave of people fall prey to a "ghost sickness" that induces fear, paranoia, and ultimately a fatal heart attack. Sam and ...

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
Here is a big new
comer. Her name is Lilith.

I don't think I like you any more.

I have got demon blood in me,Dean

I am whole new level of freak.

Wait! It's not Ruby,its Lilith

Sic him,boys.

You should show me some respect.

I dragged you out of hell.

I can throw you back in.


It'll kill you!

Agent Tyler,agent
Perry, meet Frank O'brien.

He died of a heart attack,right?

Three days ago.

But O'brien was 44 years
old and,according to this

?A marathon runner.

Everybody drops dead sooner or later.

It's why I got job security.

Yeah,but Frank kicked it here.

Now,just yesterday,two perfectly
healthy men bit it in maumee.

All heart attacks. You
don't think that's strange?

Sounds like maumee's problem to me.

FBI Why's the FBI give a damn,anyway?

We just want to see the
results of Frank's autopsy.

What autopsy?

The one you're gonna do.

First dead body?

Far from it.


?Because these suckers
can get pretty ripe.

Hey,hand me those
rib cutters,would you?

Is that from a wedding ring?

-I didn't think frank was married.
-Ain't my department.

Any idea how he got these?

You know what?

When you drop dead,you
actually tend to drop.

Body probably got scraped
up when it hit the ground.


I-I can't find any blockages
in any of the major arteries.

Heart looks pretty damn healthy.

Hold that a second,would you?

Oh,sorry. spleen juice.

?Hell's bells,linus,have
you seen my - who are they?

-Federal agents. I,uh
-And you kept them waiting?

You - you said
not to disturb.

Come on back, fellas.

Shoes off.

Al britton.

-Good to meet you.
-You too.

Thank you.



What can I do for uncle Sam?

Well,we're looking into
the death of frank o'brien.

We understand some of
your men found his body.

They did.

Me and Frank -
we were friends.

Hell,we were gamecocks.

That's our softball team's name.

They're majestic animals.

I knew frank since high school.

To be honest,I just this morning
got up the strength to go see him.

Frank was...

He was a good man.


Big heart.

Before he died,did you
notice frank acting strange?

Maybe scared of something?


?Real jumpy.

You know what scared him?


Wouldn't answer his phone.

Finally,I sent some of my boys
over to check on him,and,well,

You know the rest.

So,why the feds give a crap?

You don't really think
there's a case here?


It's probably nothing.

Just a heart attack.

No way that was a heart attack.

Definitely no way.

Three victims,all with
those same red scratches,

48 All went from jittery to
terrified to dead within 48 hours.

Something scared them to death?

All right,so,what can do that?

What can't?


-It could be a hundred things.

So we make a list and
start crossing things off.

?All right,who's the last
person to see frank o'brien alive?

?Uh,his neighbor, Mark Hutchins.

- - -Hang
on,hey. -What?

I don't like the looks of
those teenagers down there.

Let's walk this way.

Tyler and Perry.

Just like aerosmith.

Yeah,small world.

So,the last time you
saw Frank O'brien?

Monday. he was watching
me from his window.

?I waved at him,but he
just closed the curtains.

Hmm. did you speak to him recently?

Did he seem different?


Oh,totally. he was freaking out.

Do you know,uh - do
you know what scared him?




Well,"Wizard of Oz" was on
tv the other night,right?

And he said that green bitch
was totally out to get him.

Anything else scare him?

Everything else scared him -
al-qaeda,ferrets,artificial sweetener,

Those pez dispensers with their
dead little eyes - lots of stuff.

So,tell me - what
was frank like?

I mean,he's dead,you know?

I-I don't want to hammer
him,but he got better.

He got better?

Well,in high school he
was - he was a dick.

A dick?

Like a bully.

I mean,he probably taped half
the town's butt cheeks together,

Mine included.

So he pissed a lot of people off.

You think anyone would
have wanted to get revenge?

Well,I don't...

Frank had a heart attack,right?

Just answer the question,sir.

I don't think so.

Like I said,he got better
after what happened to his wife.

His wife?

So he was married.

20.. She died about 20 years ago.

Frank was really broken up about it.

Don't be scared of donny.

He's a sweetheart.

It's Marie you got to look out for.

She smells fear.

Any luck at the
county clerk's office?

I'm not sure I'd call it luck.

Frank's wife,jessie,was
a manic-depressive.

She went off her meds
back in '88 and vanished.

They found her two weeks
later,three towns over,

Strung up in her
motel room - suicide.

Any chance frank helped
her along to the other side?

No,Frank was working the swing
shift when she disappeared.

Airtight alibi.

How was Frank's pad?


Searched it top to bottom.

No emf,no hex bags,no silver.

So probably no ghosts,no
witches,no demons.

3 down and 97 to go. yeah.

Dude,you're going 20.


That's the speed limit.

What? safety's a crime now?

Dude,where are you
going? that was our hotel.

?Sam,I'm not gonna make a
left-hand turn into oncoming traffic.

I'm not suicidal.

Did I just say that?

That was kind of weird.

Do you hear something?

Am I haunted?

Am I haunted?!


Look at this.

I just talked to bobby. and?

Um,well,you're not gonna like it.


It's ghost sickness.

Ghost sickness? yeah.

God,no. yeah.

I don't even know what that is. okay.

Some cultures believe
that certain spirits

Can infect the living
with a disease,which is

Why they stopped
displaying bodies in houses

And started taking them
off to funeral homes.

Okay,get to the good stuff.

Symptoms are you get anxious...

Yeah... and scared,then really
scared,then your heart gives out.

Sound familiar?

Yeah,but,Sam,we haven't
seen a ghost in weeks.

Well,I doubt you
caught it from a ghost.

Look,once a spirit
infects that first person,

Ghost sickness can spread like any
sickness through a cough,a handshake,


It's like the flu.

Now,frank o'brien
was the first to die,

Which means he was
probably the first infected.

Patient zero.

Our very own outbreak monkey.

Right. get this - frank was
in maumee over the weekend.

Softball tournament...

Which is where he must have
infected the other two victims.

Were they gamecocks?


So,ghosts infected frank,he
passed it on to the other guys,

And I got it from his corpse? right.

So now,what,I have 48 hours before
I go insane and my heart stops?

More like 24.

- Super.
- yeah.

Well,why me? why not you?

I mean,you got hit
with the spleen juice.

Yeah,um,you see,bobby and I
have a theory about that,too.

?? Turns out all three victims
shared a certain,uh,personality type.

Frank was a bully.

The other two victims -
one was a vice principal,

The other was a bouncer.


Basically,they were all dicks.

So you're saying I'm a dick?


It's not just that.

All three victims
used fear as a weapon,

And now this disease is
just returning the favor.

I don't scare people.

Dean,all we do is scare people.

Okay,well,then,you're a dick,too.

Apparently,I'm not. whatever.

How do we stop it?

We gank the ghost
that started all this.

We do that,the disease
should clear up.

You thinking frank's wife?

Who knows why she
killed herself,you know?

What are you doing
waiting out here,anyway?

Our room's on the fourth floor.

It's -
it's high.

I'll see if I can move
us down to the first.

Thanks. sure.

Everything all right?


Just peachy.

Find anything? yeah.

? Jessie o'brien's body was cremated,

So I'm pretty sure
she is not our ghost.


Quit picking at that.

How you feeling? awesome.

It's nice to have my head
on the chopping block again.

I almost forgot what
that feels like. yeah.

It's freaking delightful.

We'll keep looking.

You okay?


We've been completely ignoring
the biggest clue we have - you.

I don't want to be a clue.

The abrasions,this - the disease,it's
trying to tell us something.

Tell us what
- wood chips?


I'm not going in there.

I need backup,and
you're all I've got.

You're going in,Dean.

Let's do this.

It is a little spooky,isn't it?

Oh,I'm not carrying that.

It could go off.

I'll man the flashlight.

You do that.

Emf's not gonna work
with me around,is it?

You don't say.

Come on.

- shh.

"to frank. love,jessie. "

Frank o'brien's ring.

What the hell was frank doing here?

No idea.

That was scary!


Luther garland.

Hey,this is,uh...

...this is frank's wife.

Plot thickens.


But into what?

Guess we got the right place.

Is he... drunk?


Deputy,according to this,

Luther garland's cause of
death was physical trauma.

What does that mean?

The guy died 20 years
ago - before my time.


Then can we talk to the sheriff?

Um,he's out sick today.

Well,if you see him,will
you have him call us?

We're staying at the bluebird.

Mind if I take this?

Know what?

You're awesome.


Um,y-you too,I guess.

? Who was that?

It,uh -
those fbi guys.

What did they want?

A file -
luther garland's.


They know.

They know.

They know what you did,and
they're gonna make you pay.

This isn't gonna work.

Come on,these badges are fake.

What if we get busted?
we could go to jail.

Dean,shh! calm down.

Deep breath,okay?

There. you feel better?

Just come on.

Don't scratch.

Mr. garland.

Hi. um,I'm agent tyler.

This is agent
perry - fbi.

We'd like to ask you a few
questions about your brother luther.

Let me see some I.d.


Those are real.


? I mean,who would pretend
to be an fbi agent,huh?

That's just nutty.

What do you want to know?


According to this,your brother
luther died of physical trauma.

You don't agree.

No,I don't.

Well,then,what would you call it?

Don't matter what an old man thinks.

Mr. Garland...

We're just trying to get
the truth on your brother.


Everybody was scared of luther.

They called him a monster.

He was too big,too mean-looking.

Just too different.

Didn't matter he was the
kindest man I ever knew.

Didn't matter he'd never hurt no one.

A lot of people failed luther.

I was one of them.

I was a widower with three young'uns,

And I told myself there
was nothing I could do.

Mr. garland,um...

Do you recognize this woman?

It's jessie o'brien.

Her man,frank,killed luther.

How do you know that?

Everybody knows.

They just don't talk about it.

Jessie was a
receptionist at the mill.

She was always real nice to
luther,and he had a crush on her.

But frank didn't like it.

And when jessie went missing,

Frank was sure that luther
had done something to her.

Turns out the old gal killed
herself,but frank didn't know that.

They found luther with a
chain wrapped around his neck.

He was dragged up
and down the stretch

Outside that plant
till he was past dead.

And o'brien was never arrested?

I screamed to every cop in town.

They didn't want to look into frank.

He was a pillar of the community.

My brother was just the town freak.

You must have hated frank o'brien.

I did for a long time,but
life's too short for hate,son.

And frank wasn't thinking straight.

His wife had vanished.
he was terrified.

A damn shame he had to put luther
through the same,but... that's fear.

It spreads and spreads.

Now we know what
these are - road rash,

And I'm guessing luther
swallowed some wood

Chips when he was being
dragged down that road.

Makes sense.

? You're experiencing
his death in slow motion.

Yeah,well,not slow enough,huh?

Say we burn some bones
and get me healthy.

Dean,it won't be that easy.

No,no. it'll be that easy.

Why wouldn't it be that easy?

Luther was road-hauled.

His body was ripped to pieces.

He was probably scattered
all over that road.

There's no way we're
gonna find all the remains.

You're kidding me.

Look,we'll just have to
figure something else out.

You know what? screw this.

Whoa,whoa,whoa. Dean.

Come on. no,I mean,come on,Sam.

What are we doing?!

We're hunting a ghost.

? A ghost - exactly.
who does that?


Us? right.

And that,Sam - that is
exactly why our lives suck.

I mean,come on. we hunt monsters!

What the hell?!

I mean,normal people,they
see a monster,and they run.

But not us - no,no,no.
we - we search out things

that want to kill us.

Yeah? huh? or eat us!

? ? You know who does
that? crazy people!

We... are insane!

You know,

And then there's the bad diner
food and then the skeevy motel rooms

and then the truck-stop
waitress with the bizarre rash.

? I mean,who wants this life,Sam?

Huh? seriously?

Do you actually like being stuck

in a car with me eight hours a day,

Every single day?

I don't think so!

I mean,I drive too fast,

And I listen to the same five albums

over and over and over
again, a-and I sing along.

I'm annoying. I know that.

and you -
you're gassy!

you eat half a
burrito,and you get toxic!

I mean,you know what?

you can forget it.

whoa,Dean. where are you going?

stay away from m Sam,okay?

? cause I am done with it.

I'm done with the monsters and
- and - and the hellhounds

and the ghost sickness
and the damn apocalypse.

I'm out. I'm done. quit.

I looked everywhere for you,Dean.

how the hell did you get here?


what do we do now?

I got less than four
hours on the clock.

I'm gonna die,Sammy.

yeah,you are.

you're going back.


downstairs,Dean hell.

it's about damn time,too.

truth is,

you've been a real pain in my ass.


you get out of my brother,you
evil son of a bitch!

? no one's possessing me,Dean.

this is what I'm going to become.

this is what I want to become.

? there's nothing
you can do about it.


hey,Dean. Dean. Dean.



hey,thanks for coming so quick.

? where's Dean?

home sick.

Oh,this isn't helping.

So,have his
hallucinations started yet?

Yeah,a few hours ago.

How we doing on time?

We saw the coroner about 8:00
a. m. monday morning,so,uh...

Just under two hours.

What about you? you find anything?

? This,uh,encyclopedia of
spirits dates to the edo period.

You can read japanese?

Guess so,show-off.

Anyway,this book lists a kind
of ghost that could be our guy.

It,uh,infects people with fear.

buruburu It's called a buruburu.

It say how to kill it?

Same as usual -
burn the remains.

Wonderful. uh... is there a plan "b"?

Well,the buruburu is born of fear.

Hell,it is fear.

And the lore says we
can kill it with fear.

So we have to scare a ghost to death?

Pretty much.

How the hell we gonna do that?

So,uh,just ride out the trip,okay?

You're - you're gonna
be fine. we got a plan.

What is it?

Uh,just a good plan,all
right? hang in there.

This is a terrible plan.

Yeah,tell me about it.

I know I said,"scare the
ghost to death," but this?

You got a better idea,I'm listening.


What are you doing?

Why are you looking into
luther garland's death?

- you're sick.

You're sick. you're sick,all right?

Just - just like
me,okay? you got to relax.

Frank o'brien was my friend.

So he made a mistake.

So I didn't bust him.

So what?

And you're gonna bring
me down over that?!


They know what you did.

Get away from me!

- Al,you got to calm down!
- step back!

They know...

Any luck?

I don't know what's wrong,bobby.

Last time he came right at us.

It's almost like he's,uh...

Like he's scared.

So now what?

I guess I got to make him angry.


Come on,luther! where
the hell are you?

What are you waiting for?

You're going back.


No. no.


It's me
- lilith.

Oh,I missed you so much.

It's time to go back now.

You - you
are not real!

What's the matter,Dean?

Don't you remember all
the fun you had down there?

You do remember.

4 months is like
40 years in hell.

Like doggy years.

And you remember every second.

You are not real.

It doesn't matter.

You're still gonna die.

You're still gonna burn.

Why me?

Why'd I get infected?

Silly goose.

You know why,Dean.

Listen to your heart.


Bobby,punch it!

So you guys rode of
ghosts with a chain?

Iron chain etched with a spell word.

Hmm. now,that's a new one.

It was what he was most afraid of.

It was pretty brutal,though.

On the upside,I'm still

Yeah. how you feeling,by the way?


You sure,Dean?

'cause this line of
work can get awful scary.

I'm fine.

You want to go hunting? I'll hunt.

I'll kill anything.

Aw. he's adorable.

I got to get out of here.

You boys drive safe.

You too,bobby.



So,what did you see?

Near the end,I mean.

Oh,besides a cop beating my ass?


Howler monkeys.

Whole roomful of them.

- Those things creep the hell out of me.
- right.

No,no,just the usual stuff,Sammy.

all right!

risin' up,back on the street

did my time,took my chances

went the distance,now
I'm back on my feet

just a man and his will to survive

so many times,it happens too fast

you trade your passion for glory

don't lose your grip on
the dreams of the past

you must fight just
to keep them alive

it's the eye of the tiger

it's the thrill of the fight

risin' up to the
challenge of our rival

and the last known survivor
stalks his prey in the night

and he's watchin' us all
with the eye of the tiger

all right!
